Book News--Maria V. Snyder

As you know I am a BIG Maria Snyder fan!! Love her books, both adult series and her YA. I found out at her blog that her next adult series that she's working on, has a title for the first book!

It's called Touch of Power! There's no cover art yet, but there is a BOC description:

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....

And this releases January 2012! Seriously, so far 2012 is looking far better than 2011!

Will post more details when I hear about them!


  1. Woohoo! You've made my night with this news. I LOVED her Study series ( Valek = YUM) And the blurb for this sounds really good. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is great news! Thanks for sharing. I wonder if it will be the same world or a new one. There were plenty of places we did not go in the old world....

  3. Oh I have the Iron Witch. It looks SO GOOD! Thanks for stopping by!
