She's fought death and won. But how can she fight her fears?
Avry knows hardship and trouble. She fought the plague and survived. She took on King Tohon and defeated him. But now her heart-mate, Kerrick, is missing, and Avry fears he's gone forever.
But there's a more immediate threat. The Skeleton King plots to claim the Fifteen Realms for his own. With armies in disarray and the dead not staying down, Avry's healing powers are needed now more than ever.
Torn between love and loyalty, Avry must choose her path carefully. For the future of her world depends on her decision....

While I definitely enjoy Maria V. Snyder's books, and I loved this series, this one for me fell just a bit flat in comparison. Not to say I didn't enjoy it, if you've listened to the others in the series, definitely listen to it.
Absolutely, I've thoroughly enjoyed every single one of her other books.
I don't think I could pick a favorite, I think she's a wonderful narrator
I like the Poison Study series much better, but this was pretty good. The explanations of how the lilies work, rescuing this or that person, and thinking/believing someone is dead got a bit repetitive by this last book. As usual, Zackman's performance is really good.
So sick of a Avry being willing to die to save one random stranger knowing that by doing so her death will leave their entire world without a healer - not just once but repeatedly. That's not admirable - that's criminally negligent behavior.
Also, sick of her ALWAYS thinking she knows more about military tactics than the professionals and throwing temper tantrums and stamping off to do what she thinks needs to be done and AGAIN putting herself in danger to get her way and to Hell with the needs of incoming casualties or existing patients.
Avry: Spoiled, selfish, ignorant child.
Why, why, WHY do so many authors (FEMALE authors, no less!) so often create heroines like this. A woman can be strong without being a stubborn selfish pain-in-everyone's butt.
It was a little slow. I was very intrigued about the skeleton king and I feel that he was dealt with too quickly where other areas of the book seemed to drag.
I love the Healer series because of the strong role Avry plays. However, I found this book was a little lacking compared to the other two Healer books.
I could see the first Healer book being made into a movie but not this one.
I felt that the author had too much pressure on her during this book. It had real potential and I felt that she put emphasis on parts that were minor and didn't emphasis more intriguing plots.
