Teaser Tuesdays (34)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read

Open to a random page

Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teasers this week:

"Her attacker gave a surprised cry as she dislodged him and he stumbled backward, trying to keep his balance as he stepped over a fallen branch. Now it was Xan's turn to watch her with astonishment. He wasn't the only one who had hidden abilities and it made Donna feel good that she could take care of herself. It wasn't often she was thankful for being different but now was one of those times."


The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney
p.100 (ARC)

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.

So far I think this book is very entertaining and an interesting take on faeries. Donna is a funny and strong heroine with a great sidekick in Navin. He is such a fantastic friend. Xan is also a good love interest and he reminds me a bit of Jace Wayland from the Mortal Instruments series. It is hard to put this book down at the moment. I hope it will not disappoint in the end.
