The Wood Queen by Karen Mahoney

The Wood Queen:
Donna Underwood is in deep trouble. An ancient alchemical order is holding her accountable for destroying the last precious drops of the elixir of life. Never mind the fact that Donna was acting to free her friend, Navin, from the dangerous clutches of the Wood Queen at the time. But what the alchemists have in store is nothing compared to the wrath of the fey. The Wood Queen has been tricked and Donna must pay. Get ready for all hell - quite literally - to break loose...

Karen Mahoney has created such an interesting and intricate world within the Iron Witch trilogy, and I just can’t seem to get enough, I’m simply on pins-and-needles waiting for the final installment. The wood Queen picks up shortly after The Iron Witch left off, and while the romance is a little less apparent in this book, the complexities of Donna’s world--or at least the one she thinks she knows--became more apparent. Donna is still a very enjoyable and realistic character. She is also independent, and as much as she would sometimes like to depend on others, she is unwilling to let them fulfill her responsibilities. In this book, Donna discovers alarming truths about herself and her past, and it will change the course of her future forever. The relationships formed throughout Donna’s life begin to take on an interesting change, and new alliances and enemies are revealed in The Wood Queen. Secrets have surrounded Donna her entire life, and now the lies everyone have spoken are beginning to quickly unravel. Unsure of just who she can trust, and unwilling to put her best friend, Navin, in harms way again, she makes a deal with the Wood Queen. Only the Queen deceives her and now Donna has opened a door that she may never be able to close again, and this time no one is safe.
