Still On Mind #4

"Still on Mind" is a weekly event, hosted at Ya-Aholic, every thursday to feature a book that you read months or even YEARS ago that was so good (or so scary/unique/funny..etc) that it is 'Still on my (your) Mind!'



This week the book that is still on my mind is...


Touch of Power (Healer #1)


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...


Why this is still on my mind?

"This was the first book I read in 2012 and this was the first book of Maria V Snyder that I read...oh I plan to read all of her books soon... but whats more striking with this book is the level of details put forth in this world.

  1. High levels of detail are always welcome with me! I just love beautiful imagery, as long as there isn't TOO much (which I end up skipping just to read the narrative parts)
