Waiting On Wednesday (102)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. WOW spotlights forthcoming titles that we absolutely can't wait to read.




Touch Of Power by Maria Snyder


Summary: 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...


Why I Want It: So I admit, I haven't read much by this author but this sounds interesting enough and I want to read more by her!

I don't think I have this one on my list yet! I haven't read anything by the author either. Thanks for sharing!

I really enjoyed Maria V. Snyder's books and I am looking forward to this one. I think it's set in the same world as the Glass and Study series, but I am not sure. Great pick!

Loved her Study series but not so much the Glass so I hope this is as good as the former.
