Wishlist Wednesday: The Iron Witch

A weekly event on my blog where I post about books (not necessarily pre-release or new) that I've just added to my wishlist, along with a little blurb on why I want to read it.

The Iron Witch
by Karen Mahoney
release date: 8 February 2011
Freak. That's what her classmates call seventeen-year-old Donna Underwood. When she was seven, a horrific fey attack killed her father and drove her mother mad. Donna's own nearly fatal injuries from the assault were fixed by magic — the iron tattoos branding her hands and arms. The child of alchemists, Donna feels cursed by the magical heritage that destroyed her parents and any chance she had for a normal life. The only thing that keeps her sane and grounded is her relationship with her best friend, Navin Sharma.
When the darkest outcasts of Faerie — the vicious wood elves — abduct Navin, Donna finally has to accept her role in the centuries old war between the humans and the fey. Assisted by Xan, a gorgeous half-fey dropout with secrets of his own, Donna races to save her friend — even if it means betraying everything her parents and the alchemist community fought to the death to protect.

Why it's on my wishlist
While I'm usually not a fan of fairies, I'd really like to try this book out. For one, I'm hoping that we get to see friendship that isn't overshadowed by romance. For another, alchemy just holds a special meaning to me (FullMetal Alchemist ♥) and I'd love to see the direction the author takes.

I'm curious about this one too. I still think "Iron" is overused in titles with faeries these days, but I'm also a cover whore, and I love this one!

Great pick. =)

Faeries books are like hot commodity this days, I'm not complaining though. That cover is gorgeous and the summary is very interesting! Great WoW pick!
