Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The world created by Snyder is both amazing and very cruel. The characters that live within this book are deep; each character has many layers to them. What you see on the surface isn't always what the character really means, wants or they might not be telling you the truth. It's really hard to tell because you have to slowly peel away each layer of each character to figure out their motives.
Avry, our main character and healer is a very likable character. It's hard not to feel for her as she's already had a rough life. Then you add being a wanted healer into the mix and it makes everything worse because she's constantly on the run and she knows nothing of what happened to her family or Tara, the woman that taught her how to heal in the first place.
It's easy to become attached to the group of men that rescue her from her newest plight because they too are likable characters even if they each have their own issues.
It's so easy to be pulled into this world. I was instantly pulled into the story line. However some portions of the story were a little lacking, but this was mostly towards the end.
I'd love to read more about this world!
