    Live To Read

    All readers excited for this sequel should run to get their hands on a copy. Author Karen Mahoney captures readers and thrusts them into her world of elves, alchemists, and power. Donna is in deep trouble with the alchemists over the elixir debacle from the first book, The Iron Witch, and worries constantly about her dying mother. Worry over her mother consumes her and she faces her deadliest enemy, the Wood Queen, in an attempt to save her mother. The Wood Queen is notorious for twisting her truths and dishonesty, will Donna's dealings go well?



    The reader will get to know the other characters much better. Donna grows in this book, she matures. The reader will enjoy watching Donna and Xan's relationship grow as well. Though the romance is not the focus of the novel, Mahoney will make the reader believe that a cold-hearted, half-blood could love mortal Donna. It will be interesting for the reader to learn more about Xan and make his/her own decision as Xan is still a little hard to trust, loving Donna or not. The other characters, especially Navin, are very fun to read about. They play a very important part in pushing the plot along at a rapid rate.



    The plot begins with no hesitation, the reader will be taken straight into action. Following Donna's quick actions and rapid thoughts will keep the reader occupied throughout the novel. The book contains quite a few twists and surprises, enough to make the plot fast-paced and the reader guessing. The reader will receive glimpses into both Donna and her mothers' minds as well as learn some pertinent background information. This book is highly recommended to young adult/teen readers-if you haven't picked up the first book, check it out on Goodreads (The Iron Witch).

    Great book!

    After reading the first book and really liking it, I knew I wanted to read the second book. This book pick up right from where it left off. Donna is still facing the consequences of her past actions and much need work is needed to be done.

    What I liked most about this book, is that Donna is stronger. She is exposing secrets left and right. I like that Donna is being head on about things. She is tired of lies and demands the truth. I totally agree with her. Enough lies!

    The love interest didn't grow as much as I wanted it to, but it did bring some revelation about their relationship. Let's just say the guy wasn't totally honest either. There love suffered a bit and I am anxious to see, with all the new revelations how its going to go now.

    Despite the occasional predictability, it ends up being a satisfyingly read. The Wood Queen, had lots of action that kept you at the edge of your seat.
