Early Book Review: Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder

Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder is the first book in a new series due for release December 27 2011. Fans of Snyder's previous novels will delight in this new series. Avry of Kazan is a healer, a magic user in serious danger. Since a plague spread over the land people blamed the healers and most were killed in retaliation. Any healers left, including Avry, need to hide their nature in order to survive. But taking on a young girl's illness and healing her instead of letting her die earns Avry nothing less than a death sentence. Then a band of rogues rescue her from her cell it is her healing ability that they prize her for, hoping that she will heal their prince. She is left with little choice, stay and die or travel with the men in order to save the life of a man that she despises. No matter the choice, Avry is certain that death is in her future. Power plays, mercenaries, unexpected friendships, and a crazed prince willing to pervert nature in order to rule the world make the decision easier to make but increasingly difficult to carry out.
