Book Review: The Iron Witch - Karen Mahoney

Synopsis - Donna is a freak.  An outcast.  Branded with iron tattoos that cover her hands and arms, she is cursed with a magically-enhanced strength that she does everything she can to hide.

But now, the dark exiles of Faerie are coming and Donna must choose between saving her best friend - or betraying one of the world's greatest secrets.

Review - A seventeen year old girl with memories of a terrible past, constantly reminded when on a daily basis she has to wear the gloves that cover her 'different' hands and arms.  Yet, for all that has gone before she is surprisingly well adjusted.  We learn about her unusual life in belonging of the Order of the Dragon.  The secrets she tries desperately to keep from her best friend Navin and Xan, the young man she meets at a party.  The reader is carried along on an adventure into her strange and dangerous world.  Good fun.  3*
