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.
Fire and Ice is giving away a fine art print of your choice up to an 8×12 of “The Ax in the Wood” by Heather Gardner Photography, inspired by this passage in The Iron Witch.
“In my nightmares, I’m always running through twisted woodland…The Ashen stump of a tree trunk stands in the center, a fairy tale woodcutter’s axe stuck into the top of it at an angle. I’m breathing hard, my chest burns and the fear is like a frozen claw gripping me so tight it hurts. My child’s hands reach for the scarred axe handle, even as I know I won’t be able to pull it free. I never can…” p.1, The Iron Witch
