Scent of Magic (Healer 2)

By: Maria V. Snyder

Release Date: December 18, 2012

Rating: 4 stars

Summary:As the last Healer in the Fifteen Realms, Avry of Kazan is in a unique position: in the minds of friends and foes alike, she no longer exists. Despite her need to prevent the megalomaniacal 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 confidant, returns to Alga to summon his country into battle.Though 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 defeat.War is coming and Avry is alone. Unless she figures out how to do the impossible…again.


Thoughts: Those of you who follow our group of friends know that quite recently, a lot of them read Maria V. Snyder’s first book in the “Healer” series, “Touch of Power,” and loved it.

Having read the ARC back in October 2011, I’ve been trying to keep up with the book.

Of course, when we tried to find information about the sequel, all we had were a title and book cover. No release date, and it didn’t seem like anyone has been able to get their hands on an ARC.

Well, I have been corresponding by e-mail with Maria V. Snyder the last few months, and in September, she told me that she has finished the book, and it will be released December 18!

What’s more, she has agreed to do an interview with me!

I have a list of questions I want to ask, and if any of you have anything you want to ask her about this book or any of her other books, please feel free to send them to me. As she is very busy at the moment, I plan to publish her interview sometime in December before the book’s release.

In the meantime, you can get a sneak peek of the book read Chapter 1 on her website. And if you’re just dying for more, request an Advance Reader Copy (ARC) on NetGalley. My review has been posted on Goodreads, and I will post it on this blog closer to the release date.
