"Waiting On Wednesday" The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection from me is:

Synopsis from Amazon:

That's what they call seventeen-year-old Donna Underwood at Ironbridge High School. A horrific fey attack that killed her father when she was just a child left Donna branded with iron tattoos that cover her hands and arms - and magically enhanced strength, that she now does all she can to hide.
Now, after ten years of wishing for a normal life, Donna finally accepts her role in the centuries-old war against the darkest outcasts of Faerie - the dark elves. Aided by Xan, a gorgeous half-fey dropout, Donna must save her best friend's life - and that means betraying one of the world's greatest secrets and confronting the very thing that destroyed her family."

The cover on this invites me to know more, and gives me empathy and compassion for Donna.

The Iron Witch sounds like a really good book filled with fey outcasts and confrontation.  Imagine being branded in such a way you feel that you have to hide away, cover yourself, and blend in with everyone else, rather than live life to the full....I'm really looking forward to reading it.(On Amazon UK it's a pre-order for £3.49)
