Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder

Can't wait to read this book! It's due to come out January 2012.


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....


  1. Do you know if this book is set in Sitia and Ixia? I'm a really big fan of her books :)

  2. Hhmm, I'm not sure. That's a good question though.

    If I find anything on it I will let you know!

  3. I did some looking around and it doesn't seem like the Healer series is based in Ixia/Sitia.


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
