So what book am I looking forward to….

Scent of Magic (Healer, #2)

Scent of Magic (Healer #2) by Maria V. Snyder

Publish: December 18 2012

Preorder: Amazon

Read the First Chapter!


Hunted, Killed—Survived?

As the last Healer in the Fifteen Realms, Avry of Kazan is in a unique position: in the minds of her friends and foes alike, she no longer exists. Despite her need to prevent the megalomanical King Tohon from winning control of the Realms, Avry is also determined to find her sister and repair their estrangement. And she must do it alone, as Kerrick, her partner and sole confident, returns to Alga to summon his country into battle.

Though she should be in hiding, Avry will do whatever she can to support Tohon’s opponents. Including infiltrating a holy army, evading magic sniffers, teaching forest skills to soldiers and figuring out how to stop Tohon’s most horrible creations yet; an army of the walking dead—human and animal alike and nearly impossible to defeat.

War is coming and Avry is alone. Unless she figures out how to do the impossible … again.

I know it might sound funny that I cannot wait for this book to come out when I haven’t even read the first book in the series yet:

Touch of Power (Healer, #1)

Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder

I do have it loaded onto my Kindle I just need to find some time to read it! I have read most of Ms. Snyder’s other books and they are some of my favorites. That’s why I know I am going to love this series as well!

So what book are you waiting for? Leave me a link and I will stop by for a visit!

  1. I’ve seen Scent of Magic a few times lately. I haven’t read the first one either but this one does look interesting. Thanks for sharing! ^.^ If you would like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday you can do so here. :)

  2. I am waiting for the same book. We’re Wow twins. LOL! 😀 The only difference is that I have already read the first book, it’s great you should definitely make the time. :)

    Check out what I am waiting for this Wednesday…

  3. I have this as an ARC but have not read yet. It is still on my TBR pile. Here is my post:

    Love your Halloween motif.

  4. I just recently got this galley. I loved Touch of Power and have loved everthing I’ve read of Snyder’s, which is everything but the Glass series. I planned to read SoM mid-November, but you’re making me want to push it up. Like, as in my next read. 😛 And did you hear that there’s going to be more of the Poison series?!? Sososo excited! 😀

  5. Good choice, of course I have book one in my tbr pile!

  6. Tiffany Drew says:

    I haven’t read any of her books yet but I might have one or two on my shelf somewhere waiting for attention. I hear she is awesome though!

    I read Touch of Power last year and thought it was pretty good. I hope you enjoy it when you finally get around to it! Thanks for stopping by. :)
    Happy Halloween!

  8. Beckie says:

    I have never heard of this series but they sounds great. The covers are very pretty.

    Will be adding them both to my TRB list. Thank you for stopping by my WOW post.

  9. This is the second WoW post I’ve seen with this book! I haven’t read the series yet, but it looks really good!

  10. I loved Touch of Power so much! You should read it. And this one, which I also am waiting for. From what I’ve heard, this series isn’t as good as her older stuff, but I’ve only read the new ones, so…I can’t say.

  11. How lovely that we’re both “waiting on” the same book this week!! :)

    Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween to you too!

  12. Jessica@a GREAT read says:

    Awesome WoW choice!! I read this one already and LOVED it! I love everything Maria writes!!

    This is up on Netgalley in case you didn’t know, that’s how I read it early!

    And did you hear, there’s going to be more Study books!! Yay!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  13. Kristen says:

    I can totally understand being chuffed for the second book without even reading the first. I have been known to collect multiple books in series before ever reading the first one because I am certain it is so right for me. :-)

  14. I haven’t seen either of these…I am going to have to check them out.

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW!

  15. Megan says:

    This one looks so good! Thanks for stopping by my WoW.

  16. Audrey says:

    I do that all the time! Pick up the next books in a series without reading the first, lol. These are awesome picks. I’ll have to add them to my TBR pile. Happy Halloween! Thanks for stopping by my WoW post. :)

  17. LilyElement says:

    I’ve been like that before, where book two makes me excited even though I haven’t read book 1. It sounds good, I’ll have to add it to my TBR.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog <3

  18. Need to start this series. It looks amazing. Thanks for sharing!

  19. I just love Maria’s books, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy this one as well. Thanks for the suggestion, and thanks for stopping by my Wow today!

  34. I didn’t like Maria V. Snyder’s Inside Out or Glass series but her Study series is one of my all time favourites! I’m interested in trying this new series of hers, I just hope it’s as good as her Study series was.

  35. Jessirae says:

    I have to read any of Synder’s books, but I really want to read her Study series. But I’ve got my eye on this one too! It sounds so good. I need to hurry up and get on this already! Awesome pick :)

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW today!

  36. Daphne says:

    You definitely have to read Touch Of Magic! It was amazing! I have to reread it again soon before the sequel comes out. Thanks for spotlighting it!

    Daphne @ Reading Until Dawn

  37. YES. Yesyesyesyesyes!! I am SO excited for this book to come out! I’m really glad the publishers decided to release it this December instead of in 2013. I’ll probably be treating myself to a christmas present…. 😉
    but OH MY GOODNESS you really need to read Touch of Power soon! It’s fantastic!

  38. Jessica says:

    Sounds like a really great read! I haven’t read the first book either, but they both look really good! Thanks for stopping by my WoW :)

  39. L.S. Murphy says:

    Great pick. It sounds really good.

  40. Happy Halloween to you too! :)

    I’ve seen this one around a bit. Seems like a popular choice! I’m not too sure yet if it’s for me… but it does sound interesting. Thanks for sharing! :)

  41. Krista says:

    This is the second time today I have seen this series. I have not read the first yet, but it is on my list!

  42. Beczy says:

    Maria V. Snyder is one of my favourite authors ever. I actually got to meet her last year. Scent of Magic is on my to read list, but Australia doesn’t get it until January, which really sucks.

    Thanks for stopping by my WOW

  43. Annabelle says:

    I haven’t read this series or heard of it before, but I like the premise and the covers. I’ll have to check it out for sure. Great choice!

    Thanks for stopping by! xx

  44. Janhvi says:

    Haven’t read this yet but it sounds good :) Thanks for stopping by our wow!

  45. Micheline says:

    I’ve seen Scent of Magic around as well…but it didn’t click that it was book two after Touch of Power (which I actually have on my reading list as well) This series looks really good, I’m anxious to get into it so I don’t blame you for being excited for book two 😉 Thanks for sharing & for stopping by my WoW as well!

  46. Ellen says:

    This is the first I have heard of this series and it sounds great. Thanks for sharing!

  47. Helene says:

    I’ve just read Inside Out and it really made me curious for more books by this author! Thanks for sharing and stopping by.

  48. Nori says:

    I absolutely adore Maria V. Snyder. I love her YA and her adult stuff. And I am so excited for this book to come out too! The first one was so good. Thanks for sharing!

  49. I need to read a Snyder book so badly! I have Poison Study on my TBR shelf and I plan on getting to it soon. All her covers are beautiful and the summary of this one really intrigues me. Thanks for sharing!

  50. Megan Nicole says:

    I’ve heard a lot about this series but I haven’t read it yet though. Thanks for stopping by!

  51. This book looks awesome! Thanks for sharing! 😀

  52. Ooooo I’ve never heard of this series! It sounds amazing though! I’ll have to look into it, thanks for sharing and stopping by mine!

  53. I still need to read Touch! I hear great things about it! Thanks for stopping by!

  54. You know, I’ve been hearing about Maria V. Snyder’s awesomeness for a while now and have yet to read any of her novels. They all sound super interesting, so I don’t know why I haven’t jumped on the bandwagon! I think I might start with this series because the covers look great and I like the premise of healers. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by Thought Casters.
