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.

I am guilty of buying this one for the cover. :x I want to read it, but I keep getting discouraged by the common reviews for it. Maybe soon I'll give it a chance.


  1. I love the cover too! I liked this book, wouldn't say it's amazing, but it is pretty good. :)

  2. Sounds pretty good! I love the silver on the arms and how that's part of the plot! I wish I could buy books just for the cover, but there's so many that I want that I have to go for the ones I knew about previously :( Hope you have time to read it soon!

  3. I also have the Iron Witch sat on my shelf, really need to read it soon :)

  4. I was really excited about this one but just couldn't get into the way it was written.
    Hope you enjoy it though!
