So I noticed there wasn't a topic about Touch of Power, the first book of Maria's new 'Healer' series yet! So here it is:

Touch of Power (Healer, #1) by Maria V. Snyder US cover
Touch of Power (Avry of Kazan, #1) by Maria V. Snyder UK cover
Touch of Power (Healer, #1) by Maria V. Snyder AU cover

Touch of Power
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...


The expected publication date is December 20th 2011! That's only 5 months and 5 days away!

I for one can't wait! And I'd love to know what the cover is gonna look like!

I posted the description on my blog and someone asked if the book will be set in Ixia and Sitia...does anyone know?


message 4: by Renée (new)

Renée (maagtablet) | 620 comments Mod
No it isn't. It's a whole new series. Maria has taken a break from Ixia/Sitia. But she still has a lot of people in Ixia/Sitia whose story she wants to tell!

Jen  (jenlr) | 392 comments Mod
Which cover do you like more?

I think I like the US cover a little more than the UK cover


message 14: by Renée (new)

Renée (maagtablet) | 620 comments Mod
UK! The US cover is a little to pink for my taste!


message 15: by Jen (new)

Jen  (jenlr) | 392 comments Mod
I think that's maybe why I like it lol. Most of the paranormal/fantasy books out there have dark covers and This cover is a nice change

*TheWrittenWord*Mo (thewrittenwordmo) | 76 comments oh woah!! i love the covers!! can't decide blue or pink!! :D can't wait to get my hands on a copy,


message 17: by Renée (new)

Renée (maagtablet) | 620 comments Mod
It's true you can't read it until you get your hands on a copy, but I think you meant wait! ;)

I made the big mistake to read the first chapter in her newsletter! It makes waiting even harder!


*TheWrittenWord*Mo (thewrittenwordmo) | 76 comments oh lol :P let me edit that XD


message 19: by Jen (new)

Jen  (jenlr) | 392 comments Mod
I resisted the urge to read the first chapter. I didn't want to be tortured for a few months until it's released lol.


message 20: by Renée (new)

Renée (maagtablet) | 620 comments Mod

message 28: by Jen (new)

Jen  (jenlr) | 392 comments Mod
Bummer! I've noticed that a lot of books are released later in the UK.


message 29: by Renée (new)

Renée (maagtablet) | 620 comments Mod
True!
I'm just glad I switched to reading in english instead of in dutch 2 years ago! Then I'd have to wait even longer!

The first review! And damn it's a good one! Now I really can't wait! http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/...

I skimmed for key words but I don't want to really read the review; I want to be completely surprised when I read the book! That being said, the words that jumped out at me while skimming really has me excited!


message 34: by Renée (new)

Renée (maagtablet) | 620 comments Mod
I only read the first paragraph, because of the same reason! But the first paragraph is amazing!

I quote: "Touch of Power is Poison Study good!!! *HUGE CHEER* I haven't enjoyed a book by Maria V Snyder so much in a long time (even though they are usually great); I stayed up reading til all hours and was even late to work because I couldn't put it down! I really hope you agree with me when you get a chance to read it. I would definitely recommend this as required reading for Maria fans ASAP!!"


message 35: by Jen (new)

Jen  (jenlr) | 392 comments Mod
Yeah, that's mostly what caught my attention.


message 36: by Jen (new)

Jen  (jenlr) | 392 comments Mod
So has anyone preordered yet?? 47 more days!!


message 37: by Renée (new)

Renée (maagtablet) | 620 comments Mod
not yet, but I think I will!


message 38: by Jen (new)

Jen  (jenlr) | 392 comments Mod
I'm going to, Amazon/Barnes & Nobles sometimes send out preorders early!


message 39: by Renée (new)

Renée (maagtablet) | 620 comments Mod
The thing is, Maria said she would post some giveaways as soon as her own stack of books arrived! Which would be before the release date!


message 40: by Jen (new)

Jen  (jenlr) | 392 comments Mod
I'm still going to preorder, I get a bunch for other people so if I win I will keep that copy and give mine to a friend :)
