I wish I would take the time to write down thoughts about a book when I get them, because otherwise, I end up sitting in front of my computer, hours later, and not quite certain what I want to say about it. Taste of Darkness wraps up the Healer series decently, and I guess I didn't realize I was l...

The first bit of this book seemed slow to me, but we quickly switched back to a multi-perspective format which preserved the exciting pace of the second book. The world-building only got better as Avry solved more mysteries about the plague. The action was constant. The relationships between the cha...

I've been a fan of Maria V. Snyder's Healer series for quite a while now. When the opportunity to read and review the third book came along, I jumped at the chance. The Healer series focuses on Avry, a remarkable young woman who is a healer in a land ravaged by plague and war. In Taste of Darkness...

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 enjoye...

This third book in the series starts with a missing and presumed dead Kerrick. Avey searches for him, even though she feels nothing of him in the forest. Most believe him dead and this makes searching for him not a high priority. This is a time of war, a time of desperation and fear, man power is ne...

Avry’s preparing for the last stages of the war against Tohon and his allies, but Kerrick has gone missing. Avry has duties she must attend to and mysteries to solve, but the most important one is: will she and Kerrick be able to stay together after everything happening to tear them apart? I read ...

If I had to describe Taste of Darkness with one word, I would probably choose lacklustre. Sadly so, and with great regret because Touch of Power was one of my favorite reads in 2012, not only that, one of my favorite fantasy book. I adored Avery and her boys. Loved the storyline and world building, ...

Taste of Darkness by Maria V. Snyder is the conclusion to the Healer trilogy. It concludes the story of Avry and Kerrick and their fight to bring peace to their continent after the devastating plague destroyed the fabric of society. Taste of Darkness, and the Healer series in general, struggled a bi...

I completely adored the first two books of this series, but couldn't find myself all that attached going into this installment. Maybe it's been because of the recent reading slump I've been in--haven't had much the desire to do much reading or anything at all--and it's left me feeling all meh toward...

I've reviewed the other two books, Touch of Power and Scent of Magic. Both were well done and I was excited for this book especially since the last book ended on a horrible cliffie. :P I also didn't know that this book was the last and so coming to the end of this book I was becoming horribly disapp...
