Waiting on Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone 🙂  It’s now time once again for Waiting on Wednesday which is hosted by Breaking the Spine.  This week I am looking forward to The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney!

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.

Summary from Goodreads.com

I love the paranormal and fairies, so this book is right up my ally.  And is the cover not gorgeous?  I just saw it for the first time yesterday over at Book Smugglers.  So what books are you looking forward to this week?

  1. Oh another new one for my wish list I am collecting a lot today. This one sound fantastic.

  2. The only book about fairies I’ve read is Wings – and I think that must have been fairly tame. This sounds interesting.

    • I think that one is much different from most of the stuff on fairies that is out there. I did like it, but one of my favorite fairy books are the Wicked Lovely books by Melissa Marr or the Iron King trilogy by Julie Kagawa. If you ever pick up another book about fairies it should be one of those 🙂

  3. this one looks interesting, intriguing cover!

  4. Great pick – I have not heard of this one but it sounds very good and you are right, the cover is gorgeous.
