Review of The Iron Witch (The Iron Witch #1) by Karen Mahoney
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.
The main character Donna has been called a freak, and horrible names at school, so she now gets home schooled, she has incredible strength.
Navin who is the only one who wants to be friends, and be close to Donna, still, doesn't know her secrets, but that doe snot last long.
Xan is a half-fey and he is hot, and anyway, he has secrets of his own, so him and Donna make good friends, or maybe more, because they have things in common.
This book was brilliant, and i loved the plot, how at the beginning, she is clueless what is happening , but then she gets dragged in, and she solves it.
I hope more people will like this book, because it is a must read book!!!
