Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder

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….

Isn’t the cover for Touch of Power just the prettiest thing??? I’m so looking forward to jumping head-first into another of Maria V. Snyder’s worlds. The new release Make Me Shiver by Aline Hunter (a.k.a. the fabulous J.A. Saare) is also on my shopping list this week. How about you–any new releases that strike your fancy for some holiday reading?

    Well, none of the authors, except Maria V. Snyder, are authors I read. So nothing really appealling to me. I only keep an agenda based on month, so not sure what will be published this particular week. There are some new books still coming I believe. I so long for Spirit Bound by Christine Feehan! I think that one will be my next all-nighter.

      Man, I need to get on the Feehan train, already! The cover for Sprit Bound is really purty. ^_^

    Touch of Power sounds interesting, and I like Maria V. Snyder’s books, so I’ll have to give that one a go!

    • Alisha December 20, 2011 at 5:14 pm

      I hope you like it! This one looks like a winner…and Anna’s review of it here on BLI was absolutely glowing.

    I will probably get clobbered, but I like the UK cover of Touch of Power much more than the US version.

    • Alisha December 20, 2011 at 5:13 pm

      Heheh… it’s clobbering time! ^_^ Nah, the UK one is purty. In fact, in this particular situation, I think all three covers (UK, UK, AU/NZ) are pretty. It’d be pretty tough to do a “Good/Bad/Are You Kidding Me” on this set.

    @ Sullivan – not sure which is the UK cover, but I have to say I like both the other versions for Touch of Power over this one. It looks like she’s tripping on flowers here!

    read legacy it was pretty decent

    I actually haven’t read any of these books or the authors before. It’s all new to me.
