I've never read a book by Maria Snyder, but I was intrigued enough about the premise to check out a new-to-me author. There was enough about this book that I liked that I might consider going back and reading some of the author's other works, but most likely only if I checked them out of the library. This story just didn't do it for me; it's a fine fantasy novel with an interesting idea at its heart, but sometimes I found myself knowing what was going to happen before it did, simply because I've read a lot of fantasy and this novel seemed to follow that genre pattern. It's a *good* pattern, but (view spoiler)...

The Death Lily is an interesting plantbeast. I hope in future books more is told about this and its powers (because you know there's more), and I hope we learn more about the Healer's Guild. If the next book comes my way, I'll give it a shot, but I won't search it out.

I received this as a digital ARC from Netgalley.
