4 stars

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

Today’s featured photographer is Girl and Typewriter!
“I am a crafter and university student in Richmond, Virginia. I mostly make cards and stationery, decorating them with watercolor illustrations, quilled paper objects or hand embroidery. I also like to find small things on the ground and use them in collages and other creations. I’ve always loved photography, and felt especially inspired to photograph everything and everyone during the six months I lived in Santiago, Chile. I’ve recently rediscovered these negatives and am selling hand-developed photos from my time in Chile, donating the profits to the current earthquake relief efforts there. Please consider supporting this initiative!”

I lived in Chile for 6 months, and all the places I went and all the people I met there are so much a part of who I am now. All of the profits from these prints will go towards a charity fund for the earthquake relief efforts there. They say Chile Relief Print in the title so you know. I have listed six so far, and may post more soon. Prints do not come with frames or mats; they do come packaged with love and care.

This picture measures approximately 5″ by 7″ and was printed on professional Ilford paper. It shows a dog I met one day while exploring the neighborhood of Bellavista, Santiago
