The Iron Witch
av Karen Mahoney
Har sett at den er til salgs fra 3 Februar 2011 i paperback versjon.
Faldt over denne boken på en annen blogg, nemlig http://supernaturalsnark.blogspot.com/
Og tenkte at denne måtte jeg bare se nermere på, pågrunn av det veldig fine coveret. Jeg vet don+t judge a book by it´s cover. Men jeg gjør det hver gang, har det med og velge mange av bøkene mine ut i fra om coveret er pænt :)
Også liker jeg jo ting når det handler om hekser og da jeg så leste videre om boken så jeg orde feer og var solgt. Eller var egentlig solgt av boka da jeg så bilde. Men hekser og feer høres også lovende ut, for meg :)
Så denne skal jeg kjøpe når den utkommer :)
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.
Fant desverre ikke så mye info om forfatteren, men fant link til hennes livejournal profil og hennes egen hjemmeside. Hvor man kan lese litt om henne og de andre bøkene hun har skrevet osv.
Men fant ut av at hun har vært profesionel tarot leser, og det er jo ganske kult. Spørr du meg :)
Sitat: (fra Goodreads)
"The creature had nut-brown skin mixed with patches of ash. It was human-sized and formed, but its skin looked like the bark of an old, old tree. About the same height as Donna, it was spindly with arms and legs that were all joints and angles. Its face was narrow and pointed, with hair on top of its head like thick moss and narrow black eyes that glinted even in the dim light of the room. The thing’s body was clothed in lichen and moss, with vines twining around its sharp limbs. The creature opened its lipless mouth, a dark slash across its twisted face.
Donna’s mind flashed back to the party and the shadow she’d seen sliding through the darkness outside Xan’s house. She hadn’t been imagining things, after all.
The wood elves had returned to the city."
— Karen Mahoney (The Iron Witch)
