Waiting on Wednesday #11

 Waiting on Wednesday is hosted at Breaking the Spine

Freak. That’s what they called seventeen year-old Donna Underwood in high school after a horrific fey attack that killed her father when she was just a child. Her injuries and rehabilitation resulted in magically enhanced strength, thanks to the iron tattoos branding her hands and arms. As a child of the alchemists, she is both blessed and cursed with a magical heritage that doesn't leave much room for boys, parties and homework.

Now, after ten years of wishing for a normal life, she finally has to accept her role in the centuries-old war against the darkest outcasts of Faerie: the Dark Elves. Aided by a gorgeous half-fey dropout, Donna must race to save her best friend’s life - even if it means betraying one of the world’s greatest secrets and confronting the very thing that destroyed her family. 

I always really enjoy Karen Mahoney's posts on writing at The Deadline Dames, where she goes by Dame Kaz. Even though I'm a little tired of faerie stories, this looks like it could break the mold- I like the idea of the iron tattoos and the alchemists.
