Waiting on Wednesday (31)

WoW is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!

The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney
Flux/2.1.11
Description (from GoodReads):
Freak. That’s what they called seventeen year-old Donna Underwood in high school after a horrific fey attack that killed her father when she was just a child. Her injuries and rehabilitation resulted in magically enhanced strength, thanks to the iron tattoos branding her hands and arms. As a child of the alchemists, she is both blessed and cursed with a magical heritage that doesn’t leave much room for boys, parties and homework.

Now, after ten years of wishing for a normal life, she finally has to accept her role in the centuries-old war against the darkest outcasts of Faerie: the Dark Elves. Aided by a gorgeous half-fey dropout, Donna must race to save her best friend’s life – even if it means betraying one of the world’s greatest secrets and confronting the very thing that destroyed her family.

Top three things that caught my eye as I read this description:
1. “centuries old war against the darkest outcasts of Faerie”
2. “gorgeous half-fey dropout”
3. “both blessed and cursed with a magical heritage”
Yup. Can you blame me for lusting after this one?

  1. Hey there! I just wanted to say, thanks for posting this, but mostly I wanted to answer the question about the bottle. :)It's an alchemical Elixir, so it has to be kept in a magical vial. If you look closely, you can see the red liquid at the bottom of the bottle.Cheers,Karen
