Waiting On Wednesday: Touch Of Power By Maria V. Snyder
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted over at Breaking The Spine and it gives us the chance to shine the spotlight on books that we are eagerly waiting for.
This week my pick is...
Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder. (I put up both of these covers because they're both so pretty)
Expected Publication: December 20, 2011, MIRA
Summary From Goodreads: 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 can't wait? I love All of Maria V. Snyder's previous books, and I have no doubt that this one will be equally amazing. The only downside I can foresee is the fact that *sniff sniff* Valek won't be there. Hopefully this book will give me another Hunky Hero that can take my mind off of him.
