Taste of Darkness
Taste of Darkness - Maria V. Snyder

Picks up right where Scent of Magic left off.  (Thanks to Debbie for the refresher!).  If you haven't read this series, now is the time since they are all out.  Both Touch of Power and Scent of Magic had cliffhanger endings (hate those) with a year wait between books. 

I do think I would have enjoyed this more had I read them closer together.  I missed the map.  (First 2 had the map, this one didn't).  It took a little while for me to get into the story, picking up around page 100.  After that, it was hard to put down with all the was going on. 

Having said that, this was a fun read.  Characters (both good and bad) make appearances in this one.  Happily, the bad, well, let's just say I was satisfied with the outcomes.  Avry and Kerrick get their HEA.  "Realm of Peace," very fitting.  Pleasing end to the trilogy.

Buddy Read: Reading progress update, 20%: "Taste of Darkness (Healer, #3)" by Maria V. Snyder
Taste of Darkness - Maria V. Snyder

BUDDY READ starting January 2, 2014, if anyone cares to join us!  Just add buddy read tag to your status updates and look for ours to join in the conversations.

 

A kind friend warned me I might want to read Scent of Magic closer to the release of this Taste of Darkness because it ended on a cliffhanger.

 

No kidding.  And, while hooked on the series, I still have mixed feelings on how author did that and some of the dead-missing-resurrected-stasis-notdead-??? stuff that went on.  I think if I had read right away and had to wait a year for this book, I would have been irate.

 

The first few pages of Taste of Darkness is spent with lots of melodrama searching for the missing Kerrick.
