Welcome to the 22nd day of Book Lovers Inc Advent Calendar. Each day we will offer you one great read in a giveaway on all 24 days till Christmas.

Today you will have the chance to win a copy of Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder! I just love and admire Snyder’s work beyond words. She just has the incredible ability to create such intricate and well structured worlds in her stories and every single one of her books is a fantastic journey for me. Her latest book, Touch of Power, is just amazing, as all of her books!

Book Blurb:

Laying hands upon the injured and dying, Avry of Kazan assumes 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 Territories, 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…

The Review:
Touch of Power wasn’t just good or amazing…It was plainly brilliant!I love Maria V. Snyder’s work and think she is one of the best fantasy writers out there and with her new series,she just confirms it!

As soon as I started reading Touch of PowerRead the rest of the review.

    This sure is a lovely gift for the holidays! What I really want from Santa? Hmm I collect statues by Nene Thomas, and the only one I don’t have is Serenity. So I would love to get that one. Unfortunately, as it is kind of rare, it is extremely expensive. More costly than I want to spend myself.

  • Mel S December 22, 2011 at 6:40 am

    All I’m asking Santa for this year is something hot and steamy for me – a new shower. Mine broke months ago and I’ve had to make do with Baths since as the water pressure isn’t enough for a proper shower any more.. 🙁

  • miki December 22, 2011 at 7:42 am

    i’m asking Santa for some books because i love them and the one on top of my list is The bite before Christmas from Jeaniene frost

    thanks you for this great giveaway, i really interested by this book so thank you for this opportunity to win it

    all the best


  • Kate aka YzhaBella's BookShelf December 22, 2011 at 7:43 am

    I’ve asked Santa for a Kindle or a Kobo. Unfortunately, I think he may have ran out and I might have to wait another year for it! Phooey!

    Thanks for the chance to win! Touch of Power sounds like a really great read!

    I’ve asked Santa for an Ereader that reads all ebook formats.

    This book sounds just wonderful, and I’m adding it to my TBR pile!
    Thank you for the wonderful giveaway opportunity!

    Happy Holidays!

  • Tanya C December 22, 2011 at 8:24 am

    I am asking Santa for just one day of peace and quiet. I want a day for myself to read to my hearts content, no one asking me for anything, no phone calls. Just a perfect day—me and my TBR pile

  • Jason K. December 22, 2011 at 9:28 am

    I want an eReader or tablet! Fortunately my BF promised me one, in case Santa can’t get to my house.

  • rissatoo December 22, 2011 at 9:51 am

    I asked Santa for an iPad 2, but I think I’m on the Naughty List, ‘cuz it doesn’t seem to be happening. :p
    My default is always new books, though, and even if that jolly old elf gives me coal in my stocking, *I* am gonna make sure I get some! 😉

  • draconismoi December 22, 2011 at 10:52 am

    Dear Santa, for x-mas this year I would like a bed and some bookshelves. My books and back each deserve a little love.

  • Marie-Claude December 22, 2011 at 11:43 am

    A long list of books!!!!!

  • Viki S. December 22, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    I’m asking Santa for a Kindle Fire this year. I’ve been very good :).
    I really am looking forward to reading TOUCH OF POWER.
    Thank you and Happy Holidays!

  • Viki S. December 22, 2011 at 12:13 pm

    Forgot my email – DUH!


  • JenM December 22, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    I’m really eyeing the Kindle Touch. My K2 is perfectly acceptable, but it’s starting to show signs of strain, so I’m thinking I need the Touch available and ready to go just in case.

  • Mary Kirkland December 22, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    hmmm what do I want from santa? I think gift cards so I can buy some of the long list of books on my wish list would be great.

  • Melanie S. December 22, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    I asked for my sister being home at Christmas and she got home today, so my wish already came true and now we can have a great time with our family.

    nothing–do not do gifts for Christmas.

  • Yto December 22, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    i will ask him to get me a kindle 😉

  • Barbara Elness December 22, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    I’ll ask Santa to bring me some charms for my new charm bracelet and of course, a few great books.

  • Jen B. December 22, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    I am getting Collectorz software to keep all of my books organized!

  • Karen C December 22, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    I’ve asked for a Kindle, g/cs for books – and a dutch oven!

  • Jenny N December 22, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    I would ask Santa for a new laptop since my current one is a little too bulky for me to take everywhere.

  • Tamsyn December 23, 2011 at 4:10 am

    I am going to ask for a reader, a Kindle. I already have an iPad2 which doubles as a reader but a Kindle just for books would be so cool. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Kristina D December 23, 2011 at 8:33 am

    I asked for books, can never get enough 🙂

  • Victoria Zumbrum December 23, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    I would ask Santa Claus for the chance to become pregnant with my own child and to have a healthy baby. That’s all I want for Christmas.

  • Na S. December 23, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    I’m going to ask for books, books and a tablet 🙂

  • Aik December 24, 2011 at 9:25 am

    I’d ask for a signed copy of Touch of Power!

  • ladymilano December 25, 2011 at 8:06 am

    I want a Rough Collie “Lassie” puppy!
    It has already 10 years I live without a dog! And my best friend just has a Golden Retriever. So, I just really miss a puppy.
    Please give me a puppy, Santa! ;D
    Merry Christmas everyone!

  • Birgit December 26, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    I didn’t really ask for anything in particular, though I’ve been secretly hoping to get a new coat and *drumroll* I really got one from Mom!!

  • Linda December 27, 2011 at 12:43 am

    I really wanted an ipod or an ipad but both are really too expensive as a gift. Never mind. I still treasure my socks & underwear gifts! Since they were given with a lot of love.

  • Maureen December 28, 2011 at 5:44 am

    I asked for gift cards so I can buy some books that I want.

  • Jeanne December 29, 2011 at 6:01 am

    I asked for a lot of books 🙂

  • Lynn December 29, 2011 at 6:18 am

    I asked for books and wished for more time to read. (:


  • IdentitySeeker December 29, 2011 at 8:37 am

    I’ll ask Santa to have a look at my book wish list, log on to the internet and then have those nice people over at The Book Depository deliver me all those lovely books:) Oh! And Santa, if you’re listening, I haven’t had a holiday in over 5 years so some airplane tickets to a nice place on the other end of the ocean would be great!:)


  • Jessie December 29, 2011 at 11:04 am

    Though I knew that Santa couldn’t give me what I really wanted for Christmas, I asked for the next best thing, an egg chair, or least a small lounge chair for my room.

  • Julie December 31, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    I was hoping Santa would give me a harp… but no such luck this year… =-(
    Maybe next year.

  • Pragya January 1, 2012 at 6:23 am

    I asked from Santa to help me with my studies.
