Maria V Snyder Blog Tour

[Note: if you were here earlier and thought this post was longer, you’re not insane; see this post for an explanation.]

Today I am pleased to be a part of the blog tour for Maria V. Snyder’s newest book and the first book in the Healer series, Touch of Power. As part of the tour, you’ll have a chance to win a copy of Touch of Power here and there’s a contest for a $100 spa certificate on Maria V. Snyder’s contest page. The complete list of the sites participating in the blog tour is here if you want to see if any others still have contests open for winning the book.

Maria V. Snyder is the author of several books, including Poison Study, an engrossing page-turner about a woman faced with the choice of being sentenced to death or becoming a food-taster for the Commander. She, of course, chooses the latter or it would have been a rather short book. I really enjoyed that book so I’m happy to have the opportunity to give someone a copy of her new book!

Maria V. Snyder switched careers from meteorologist to novelist when she began writing the New York Times best-selling Study Series (POISON STUDY, MAGIC STUDY and FIRE STUDY) about a young woman who becomes a poison taster.  When she’s not traveling, Maria lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, son, and daughter.



Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder

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 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….
