Format: Paperback
Having an addiction to literature, particularly fiction, I have developed a taste for a certain kind of content in a novel. For me, the characters background is just as important if not more so than the story currently being told. Sabrina Furminger has given readers seeking this kind of background exactly what they want. Knowing the backgrounds of these characters pulls you into their lives in such a way that you can't simply put the book down, you must know what will happen to them.

This is an extremely captivating tale. A mix of science fiction and possible reality. The perfect blend to snuggle up with, in your favourite reading nook, and loose yourself for a day.

You know sometimes you read the description of a book and you just know this will be a awesome book. Well this is one of those books .
My internet was out for a good part of yesterday so I decided to read this book. I enjoyed every minute of it and didn't put it down until I was done. The Healer is a very well written book that will keep you hooked until the very end.

I highly recommend this book to all of you.

No really -- I literally couldn't put the book down once I picked it up! Ivy is a convincing and likeable heroine, definitely not the helpless-female-protagonist-who-needs-a-man-to-feel-she-has-worth type of character you usually encounter in chick lit. Victor is a fitting counterpart for her, and I really believed in their bond. In fact, all of Furminger's characters are so well developed, you just have to read on to find out what happens to each of them. (Personally, I developed a soft spot for Bill)

The story itself is intense and captivating, and just the right length to keep your attention until the very end: there, it leaves you wanting more. I can't recommend this book enough, and I can see myself rereading it in the future for sure!

The Healer by Sabrina Fuminger Dec 21 2011
By Manoj Mehra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A thoroughly enjoyable book. Well written. Flows well and the narrative absorbs you. The plot thickens. If you are into Eastern Wisdom and the Samurai you will especially love it. Reccommend it for all.

AWESOME BOOK! Nov. 19 2011
By Nancy Figueroa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved the summary of The Healer, it sounded so intriguing! I was so curious as to how the story would progress and what Ivy would do with her power. Once I began reading it started off a bit slow for me and I figured it was because the author (Sabrina Furminger) wanted us to really know the characters and understand them and their stories, which I really appreciated later on in the book. Sabrina really made the characters come alive and I LOVED how we knew of their past lives, it made them seem familiar. Right from the beginning, I had no idea where this story would go and I can honestly say that I was not disappointed! It was action-packed, romanctic, exciting! It was crazy, I couldn't believe everything that happened to poor Ivy, I wasn't expecting any of it. Reading The Healer was intense, it was like I was right in the middle of the action. The ending was amazing! I especially loved the way they got revenge on the bad guy! =) I highly recommend this book! READ IT NOW.

good read Nov. 19 2011
By Gloria Antypowich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was intrigued by the title of this book and it's cover--The Healer. This novel covers a lot of territory and I enjoyed Ivy's journey and her relationship with Victor. Sabrina Furminger did a good job of portraying the burden that such a "gift" would have been for Ivy. I liked how Victor's love and his character became her anchor. While she was forced to draw on her own inner strength and learn to stand on her own, they helped each other find their way. The more I think about this story, the more I like it! Good job Sabrina!

An Entertaining Blend of Samurai and Urban Science Fiction Feb. 3 2014
By Weston A. Kincade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Quite a while back, I won a copy of The Healer. However, it wasn't until now that I got the time to read it. At first I was skeptical about the modern take on samurai and urban science fiction (and a little curious how the author brought the two elements together) but overall Sabrina Furminger deals with this very well. It was an entertaining read and would be worth buying for fans of this genre.

My only complaint was the believability of relationships and how quickly things progressed. It seemed like more time and experiences were needed to develop things realistically. At times certain situations felt rushed and not fully developed enough to be fully believable. However, if you can suspend your disbelief for a bit, The Healer will certainly not disappoint. Also, as an editor I noticed a few grammatical issues, but very little that will trip up most readers. The book flows well and is fast paced.

Overall this is an entertaining book for people to pick up. I recommend it for fans of urban science fiction, the paranormal, and modern takes on oriental traditions.
