The Wood Queen
Release Date: February 8, 2012
Why I love it
I love this cover because of its power (yes I know that was the reason for the first cover too :P). It also tied in very nicely with the name of the book with the wood surrounding the girl, and the queen part of it being the power emanating from her. I also like the tie in with the first book with the 'scarring' on the arm turning into white light.
Donna Underwood is facing an alchemist tribunal for stealing the elixir of life when
her ailing mother takes a turn for the worse Donna seeks an audience with Aliette, the Wood Queen, who offers a deal: if Donna can use her powers to open the door to Faerie and send the wood elves home, Aliette will free her mother from the elven curse that shattered her mind.
Along with friends Navin and the half-fey Xan, Donna struggles to unlock the secrets
of her iron tattoos in time to save her mother's life. But she discovers that some secrets might be better left untold . . .
