I am fortunate enough to be able(for the most part)to enjoy a book despite cliches and a few eye-roll inducing lines and scenes. Iron Witch was a mediocre book, for the most part, but it still held my interest and left me wanting to read the sequel. It has huge potential to become extremely good, which I look forward to. Donna was an interesting character, who is not about to let the guys do all the work, which I enjoyed(she also gave in to girlish behaviors, which to me made her seem more realistic) though what is it with the heroines in books about faeries having names that start with a D! Deirdre in Ballad and Dana in Glimmerglass, and now Donna, I don't mind but I think it's humorous. Xan and Navin on the other hand are basically copies of pretty much every "best friend who falls in love with the girl vs. new mysterious guy who falls in love with the girl" which annoyed me, though there is still a chance that Navin won't fall in love with Donna, and a certain scene at the end of the book made me question my thoughts on this, so there is still hope that this won't happen, fingers crossed! Still, despite a few annoyances I enjoyed the book and am especially eager to learn of the corruption within the Order, and what's going to happen. I love it when neither side is "good" it'll be great to see how Donna deals with things and what will happen and what is happening that the Order is hiding!
