Waiting On Wednesday (2)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney

Summary from GoodReads:
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 am I looking forward to The Iron Witch? I'm always looking for another great fey related story to read and the storyline certainly looks promising. Iron tattoos, alchemist parents, and a half-fey guy? I can't wait to see how everything is going to come together. And have I mentioned the gorgeous cover? I'm a big fan of filigree and even the title draws me in--since I'm gathering that Donna is the Iron Witch due to her tattoos although I could be horribly wrong. 

The Iron Witch comes out on February 8, 2011 from Flux.
