KAREN MAHONEY - THE IRON WITCH - RELEASE DATE 2011

KAREN MAHONEY - THE IRON WITCH - THE IRONBRIDGE CHRONICLES #1

My YA contemporary fantasy novel, THE IRON WITCH, will be published by Flux in early 2011. My story about a teen vampire called Moth, 'Falling to Ash', was published in THE ETERNAL KISS (July 2009). There's a follow-up story coming in the forthcoming KISS ME DEADLY (July 2010).

In my varied career I've been a professional Tarot reader, a college counsellor, a dating agency consultant and a bookseller. Ever since I was six years old what I really wanted to be was Wonder Woman, but have instead settled for being a writer which is the most fun you can have without bulletproof bracelets.
 
 
 
 
THE IRON WITCH


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.
