    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.

    What other book might you compare Touch of Power to and why?

    Poisen Study also by Maria V. Snyder. There are many similarities and differences. It's been a while since I read PS though and this book reminded me why I loved it. The powerful female heros, the love interests that sneak up behind me, and force me to love them, the loyal friends, it's a combination made of gold. But this brand new world of healers has so many surprises. Since I first began reading I've not been able the shut up about it to all my friends.

    With her phenomenal Mage Winds trilogy, bestselling author Mercedes Lackey captivated fans across the country. Now in the first volume of the series sequel, she continues the same storyline, returning readers to a war-torn Valdemar in preparation to confront an ancient Eastern Empire - ruled by a monarch whose magical tactics by be beyond any sorcery known to the western kingdoms.

    Any additional comments?

    This is one of my favorite books, you have no idea how happy I am to have it in audiobook! Karral's journey from horse boy to secretary to well where he ends up is a journey I love to take over and over.

    I was slightly disappointed in the performance however. The narration is slow. Just enough to frustrate me. Thankfully I listen on audible's app and I was able to increase the speed to 1 and 1/2 speed. This makes all but a few sentences sound normal paced. Those sentences usually being an excited quote. Anyway thanks to this feature I was able to listen and love one of my favorite books.
