Book Review: Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder

Title: Touch of Power (Healer #1)
Publication Date: December 20th 2011
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Source: Received from the publisher via Netgalley

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...

My Thoughts

Because of the many, many reviews of this book that flooded the blogging world all at once, I had put off reading it for fear of boring everyone with yet another review.

Man, I was missing out because Touch of Power is an exceptionally good read.
As always Ms Snyder's world building skills are magnificent and you very quickly get a sense of this world and its people.

The cast of characters is great, all of them diverse and interesting and incredibly endearing.

Avry is a really gutsy, stubborn, naive, lovable, sassy miss that immediately stole my heart. Her tanasity and fierce belief in doing what is right, is both commendable and foolish.
Belen and Flea will sneak up on you and worm their way into your soul (and then tear it apart, possble tissue moment for some)
And Kerrick, be still my aching heart, the man is gorgeous.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous-enough said!

All I can really say to you is READ THIS BOOK!

An easily given and well deserved 5 Star read ~<;]
