To say much more would definitely give too much away and the only way to know what I am talking about is to read the books.

Format: Paperback
I have been eagerly awaiting this sequel's release since reading The Iron Witch. What an awesome debut that book was, and since finishing it I couldn't wait to get back into the world Karen has created. I like that The Wood Queen picks up right where The Iron Witch ends. Donna is awaiting her trail with the Alchemists from the trouble she caused (and for good reason) with the elixir, as well as trying to figure out a way to save her mother, which proves to be harder that she thinks. What unravels in this sequel is a plot line full of secrets, lies, magic, demons, fey, wood-elves, alchemists, romance and plenty of half truths.

One of the things I get excited about in a sequel is seeing how a character grows, and Donna definitely does that well. I'll be honest, the first part of the book she really annoyed me to the point I had a hard time getting into the story until she finally stands up to her Aunt. *high fives her for that* It was obvious that her aunt knows more than she's been leading on and through out the first part of the book I kept waiting for Donna to defend herself and stop letting her Aunt treat her the way she does. It wasn't until the scene where Donna does just that did I feel like the Donna I was excepting at the beginning of the book was finally in the story. She doesn't just stand up for herself, but she also confronts her Aunt about the lies she's been told. It's during this scene that she finally learns more about who is and what's she's able to do, as well as more about her mom. I've got to say there's some surprising secrets that get uncovered in this book.

The other thing I love about this book is being thrown right back into the plots twists and the action.

Format: Paperback
After reading the first book and really liking it, I knew I wanted to read the second book. This book pick up right from where it left off. Donna is still facing the consequences of her past actions and much need work is needed to be done.

What I liked most about this book, is that Donna is stronger. She is exposing secrets left and right. I like that Donna is being head on about things. She is tired of lies and demands the truth. I totally agree with her. Enough lies!

The love interest didn't grow as much as I wanted it to, but it did bring some revelation about their relationship. Let's just say the guy wasn't totally honest either. There love suffered a bit and I am anxious to see, with all the new revelations how its going to go now.

Despite the occasional predictability, it ends up being a satisfyingly read. The Wood Queen, had lots of action that kept you at the edge of your seat.

Format: Paperback
THE WOOD QUEEN starts up right where THE IRON WITCH left off. Donna is now on trial for for stealing the elixir of life. The Wood Queen comes to Donna with a request for help and dangles her mother and her worsened condition over her head to get her to help. And if that isn't enough, her Iron Tattoos are starting to act a bit weird. Donna learns a lot in book 2. She finds out quite a bit about her powers, learns about secret plots to use her in horrible ways, and secrets that have been hidden from her. Things she thought she knew were false and people she thought were on her side disappoint her.

Donna continues to be an interesting character. I love her iron tattoos and it was great to find out more about them and how they both saved her as well as hinder her now in some ways. I like that she doesn't meekly follow along when she knows she doesn't agree with things people are doing. Navin has had a hard time dealing with all that happened in book 1 to him and the secrets that were kept from him but he is still whole heartedly Donna's best friend and is there for her every step of the events in THE WOOD QUEEN. I really hope he continues to be in on the next adventure, I couldn't imagine him not being there. Xan, uggh I just cant figure him out. I really liked him and what he brought to THE IRON WITCH but so many things about him are up in the air. When you think you know everything about him something else pops up to make you go hmmm. The ending kinda left their relationship (Donna and Xan) up in the air and I'm hoping we finally get to know him in book 3 if he is still involved. There were a few new characters introduced that I'm sure we will see more of in the future. Robert Lee who I think is a great new ally and the Demon King that I cant imagine will bring anything but trouble.

Format: Paperback
First Impressions: Well, I was dying to read this book after I finished reading the first book, The Iron Witch. I just had to know what was going to happen next. Plus, I absolutely love the cover art with this one! The synopsis also really caught my attention and from the sounds of it, this book would be more action packed then the first. I was excited to sit down and spend some time with The Wood Queen!

First 50 Pages: Oh boy! This is going to be a tough one to review without giving away too many spoilers. There are so many things that happen right from the start, so I'm afraid I will have to spoil it just a little bit. If you haven't read The Iron Witch yet, I would definitely suggest reading that book before starting with this book or you will be completely lost. The Wood Queen picks up right where The Iron Witch left off. The beginning of the story is a little slow, but it quickly picks up pace a few chapters in.

Characters & Plot: Our main character, Donna, has to face the wrath of The Order after destroying the last few remaining few drops of the Elixir of Life. During a break, a changeling named Ivy tells Donna that the Wood Queen wants to meet her, but Donna turns down the offer. This was all a bit slow pace for me but it picks up when Donna goes back to her hearing and hears some very bad news about her mother. Donna's mother is under a curse and Donna has no idea how to save her. How did they come to realize that her mother is under a curse? Donna's hot boyfriend, who is half-fairy, detects it, and by doing so, Donna realized that his powers are much greater then she originally anticipated. Whew! This was just the beginning of the story! It gets a lot more interesting after this point.
