Book Description

Dec 20 2011 Healer
Laying hands upon the injured and dying, Avry of Kazan absorbs their wounds and diseases into herself. But rather than being honored for her skills, she is hunted. Healers like Avry are accused of spreading the plague that has decimated the Fifteen Realms, leaving the survivors in a state of chaos.

Stressed and tired from hiding, Avry is abducted by a band of rogues who, shockingly, value her gift above the golden bounty offered for her capture. Their leader, an enigmatic captor-protector with powers of his own, is unequivocal in his demands: Avry must heal a plague-stricken prince—leader of a campaign against her people. As they traverse the daunting Nine Mountains, beset by mercenaries and magical dangers, Avry must decide who is worth healing and what is worth dying for. Because the price of peace may well be her life….

Avry is the same character as Yelena and Opal. And Kerrick is the same physically abusive, intolerant jerk who treats her terribly until declaring his love for her at which point she magically realizes that she's absolutely in love with him too. But, the good news is that if you liked the previous two series, you'll also like this one. It's as simple as that. I won't bother to mention what's good about this book or what's bad about it because it's exactly like the others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut to a new series! Dec 23 2011
By Tynga's Reviews TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Avry has a very unique talent and a group of man are ready to do anything to keep her alive. See, she is the last of Healers, a group able to assume other people's injuries and heal themselves ' or die trying. There used to be many of them, but after the plague hit the Fifteen Realms, the Healers were accused of spreading it, leading to a witch hunt of uncontrollable proportions. Kerrick and his rogue band will break her out of prison and save her from the pier, protect her from mercenaries, all the while dragging her to heal a King, victim of the plague. But healing this man will cost her own life, is she willing to make the sacrifice?

Touch of Power is another amazing fantasy novel by Maria. Set in a world with medieval ways and a select few people with Magical skills, Maria laid the table for an epic adventure. I was completely engrossed by the dangerous atmosphere, with its characters trying to avoid ambushes from powerful enemies to reach a very specific goal. In fact, I was so compelled I read the whole book in one sitting, which is a rare feat for me.

Miss Snyder paid extra attention to details and it paid off. She painted a very realistic world and the magical abilities she blessed her characters with ' and their precise description- made the story that much more brilliant. The plot was also quite interesting. It starts in a slow and linear manner but at some point the routine the characters established will shatter and provide a very exciting and nerve-wracking second half of the book.

Maria's characters were endearing and to following their success and defeats proved to be quite a rollercoaster ride. Avry is a strong, pig-headed, compassionate woman with a strong motherly instinct.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW Dec 29 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
WOW...I just loved this book. Rushed right out and bought the second book. Rushed right out and bought another series by the author. Is there a third one, and if so how soon can I have it. Love the world the author has created. Could not put them down. What is the series about...healing, war, love, life. I leave it to the more erudite among the reviewers to write a long description - all I can say is GIVE ME MORE....I love it. Anne McCaffrey like in how it pulls you in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just Okay June 19 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's not that this book didn't engage me: it's that it seems like a paler, more "YA", watered-down version of the "Magic Study" books. Not romance, and not true fantasy, it's a hodge-podge of made-up, medieval, and modern there is some jarringly use of current slang, that pulls you right out of the story when it pops up). The characters are likeable but the book is so simplistic, it's ultimately not very satisfying. And the cover is both unrelated to the plot, and so childish/girly that I didn't consider it appropriate "subway reading" for myself, an adult. The stories feature lilies with the power of life and death, that envelop a person whole - not shining callas!
