The Wood Queen,
This review is from: The Wood Queen (The Iron Witch Trilogy) (Paperback)
Having loved the first book in this trilogy "The Iron Witch", I couldn't wait for it's sequel to arrive....And boy! I was NOT disappointed. As with all good writers, Karen Mahoney has grown into her role as a storyteller; her characters spring to life off the page and she makes Ironwood seemingly very real (and scary!)
The dialogue exchanges are both believable and modern, and the book moves along at a pace that's not exactly gentle but not overwhelmingly fast either.
With this book, Ms Mahoney has grown as a writer and achieved what all writers should do; and that is to make follow up books even better than their original counterparts. I for one, will be interested to see how this talented British author finishes off her first trilogy of books. I bet she manages a surprise or two, that's for sure!
