I want to read that...

The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney

From Goodreads: 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.

Well, I think this one looks rather fantastic! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover! It's published by Flux in Feb 2011. Can't wait!

This is the first time I've read the blurb for Iron Witch. It certainly does sound good.
