Scent of Magic Hunted, Killed Survived As The Last Healer In The Fifteen Realms, Avry Of Kazan Is In A Unique Position In The Minds Of Her Friends And Foes Alike, She No Longer Exists Despite Her Need To Prevent The Megalomanical King Tohon From Winning Control Of The Realms, Avry Is Also Determined To Find Her Sister And Repair Their Estrangement And She Must Do It Alone, As Kerrick, Her Partner And Sole Confident, Returns To Alga To Summon His Country Into BattleThough She Should Be In Hiding, Avry Will Do Whatever She Can To Support Tohon S Opponents Including Infiltrating A Holy Army, Evading Magic Sniffers, Teaching Forest Skills To Soldiers And Figuring Out How To Stop Tohon S Most Horrible Creations Yet An Army Of The Walking Dead Human And Animal Alike And Nearly Impossible To DefeatWar Is Coming And Avry Is Alone Unless She Figures Out How To Do The Impossible Again Ah,Kerry.You ve found your heartAnd I lost mine with that endingI get it,life isn t fair,not even in books.But I suppose that s what makes them realistic,if there is no pain and agony they don t resemble reality.Still,Avry and Kerrick had their fair share of troubles and sorrow.After her fake death,Avry wanted to spend some time being someone else,she wanted to make amends with her sister and gather intelligence on their allies whereabouts.The real reason though behind the decision that took her away from Kerrick was that she feared Tohon s reaction to her survival.Pretending she was an army sergeant,she changed her appearance and tried to contribute to a war that seemed like a lost cause,since Tohon s walking dead were not easy opponents.Meanwhile,Kerrick returned to the north to help Ryne and fight the tribes that attacked his kingdom.As much as he wanted to hold Avry in his arms again,he couldn t leave his country defenceless against the barbarians,who turned out to be quite fascinating people.Betrayals,huge revelations,backstabbings and so many plot twists made Scent of Magic a unique novel.It wasintriguing than the first and narrated in dual POV and for that I am thankful since Avry and Kerrick were separated during most of the book and made my heart ache My man has eyes that change color with the seasons.They didn t deserve all these hardships.The war was ruthless,cruel,you could not guess anyone s loyalty or motives,only waiting in utter frustration and desperation their next move,their next plan and the next obstacle.Maria V.Snyder did a great job setting the reader on edge,there were times I was shaking and could not properly breathe.I hate Tohon,he is one of the worst villains because he actually thinks he is doing the right thing.His jealousy over Kerrick is so sick and twisted,he gave me goosebumps I suffered with my heroes,their deaths and their heartbreaks and mostly when Avry and Kerrick were not together.Kerrick has become one of my most beloved heroes,he was willing to sacrifice himself to save others,and his affection towards Danny was heartwarming I missed the dynamic between the original gang but this made their scenes evenprecious.Scent of Magic was a wonderful second book in Healer series,and I hope I will not bawl like a baby in the finale.Highly unlikely,but a girl can dream. Please excuse me while I go and cry in a corner about having to wait so long for this book Those who loved the first should totally understand how I feel. goes and wails pitifully UPDATE stares zombie like at the cover Ooooooh Purdy What Why Maria V Snyder How could you I had the opportunity to read the ARC of Touch of Power over a year ago and absolutely loved it Avry, Kerrick, Belen, Flea and the monkeys had such great chemistry, and their adventures really sucked me in Although, I would have to say I loved the first book way , but worry not because this one far from disappoints.First of all, I really liked how Snyder found a way to continue the concepts from the first book The gang has to find a way to stop Tohon before he brings war to the 15 Realms In the meantime, they have to warn everyone about the unusual army and figure out the secrets of the Peace and Death Lilies, as well as any possible connection tying them together.The other thing is, usually when a character goes through so much, they tend to change in the second book as they either become depressed or really angry I liked that Avry continued to be the character that I loved so much in book 1 She was so selfless, no matter friend or foe She was brave and determined, and she had that spark that made her so admirable.HOWEVEROne of the reasons why I thought the first book was so great is because of the supporting characters In this one, they kind of had their own roles, and even though it s all part of the big plan and the camaraderie is still there, this book lacked that interaction between the gang Don t get me wrong, there are scenes where they are together, and you do see that fondness they have for each other, along with the great dialogue Along with that was that Avry and Kerrick had their own roles to play, so this book doesn t have that tension and the constant bickering that intrigued me And there are new friends, but it s just not the same And my favorite character was hardly in the book The other thing is this book alternates between Avry s and Kerrick s point of view, and as much as I love Kerrick, I almost wished his part or maybe the majority of it was cut out for this book Now before all of you Kerrick fans start grabbing your pitchforks, his POV was kind of a side story because they did not share the length as Avry s Also, I kind of felt his adventures were kind of insignificant, for lack of a better word, at least in this book, especially compared to Ryne s or other characters in this book.I m sure his scenes lead up to the next one, but I almost felt as if Snyder used his POV because they had to be separated and TOP fans would be upset if Kerrick wasn t in it For me, however, it was frustrating because it kept interrupting the story, especially because of the way she ended each chapter just about all of them were so climatic they were a mini cliffhanger It s like watching TV, and they give you that surprising dum, dum, dum right before you cut to commercial break It was infuriating because I wanted to kno what happened next And by the time I got back to Avry s point of view, some of that anticipation has kind of worn off so I just didn t feel as excited about it I don t think I would have missed much if he recounted his tale, as other characters did, or even make his story a novella or make them longer scenes and fewer parts that constantly interrupt Avry s story.And the end OMG Only this time, there wasn t another chapter for me to find out Why, oh, why Sigh I guess I ll just have to wait another year, as Snyder has announced that Taste of Death, the conclusion to this trilogy will be out December 2013 However, the name does not sound to promising, now does it OMG THERES A SECOND ONE healer 2 click scrolls down Expected publication 2013 what the UPDATEPhew, It s been changed to December 2012 But stillWHY CAN T THE BOOK BE ALREADY PUBLISHED
