    1. Please excuse me while I go and cry in a corner about having to wait so long for this book. Those who loved the first should totally understand how I feel*goes and wails pitifully*UPDATE: *stares zombie-like at the cover* Ooooooh. Purdy!!!

    2. What?!? Why?!? Maria V. Snyder!!! How could you?!?I had the opportunity to read the ARC of "Touch of Power" over a year ago and absolutely loved it. Avry, Kerrick, Belen, Flea and the monkeys had such great chemistry, and their adventures really sucked me in. Although, I would have to say I loved the first book way more, but worry not because this one far from disappoints.First of all, I really liked how Snyder found a way to continue the concepts from the first book. The gang has to find a way [...]

    3. OMG THERES A SECOND ONE?"healer #2" *click* *scrolls down* Expected publication 2013* what the — ! *UPDATEPhew, It's been changed to December 2012! But still. WHY CAN'T THE BOOK BE ALREADY PUBLISHED :(

    4. Update 12/21: Check out my interview with Maria V. Snyder where she takes my questions about Scent of Magic on my blog.I'm disappointed, really disappointed. I've heard of Maria Snyder's sequel 'curse', but I've never experienced it firsthand, having never read any of her sequels. Though that's probably a good thing, because from what I can tell, Scent of Magic is Magic Study all over again: a letdown that wastes much of the promise of the first book.I hate to say it, but everything I loved abou [...]

    5. SpoilersI wasn't planning on reading this since I disliked the first book. When I saw it at the library I decided to give the author another chance (I'm nice like that) since I loved her Study trilogy so much. I also reasoned that it couldn't possibly be as bad as the first book. Thankfully, it wasn't. However, it wasn't any better either. So, I guess that's something — right?I had a lot of issues with this… I think it's easiest if I just list them below in a disorganised and ranty way: -The [...]

    6. Review: Once again I was swept into the world of Avry, Kerrick, and the rest of the characters as they experience love, loss and many adventures. I almost wish I had waited to read this second book of the Healer trilogy until the third book was out, just because of the way this book ended! Scent of Magic starts off with Avry and Kerrick going their separate ways in hopes of being able to get a bigger army together to go up against Tohon and his army. AT first I was worried this meant way less Ke [...]

    7. On The Bookshelves Full Review Scent of Magic is the second book in the Healer series by Maria V. Snyder and it was a fantastic read. Second book slump? Not for this book as it was equally as entrancing as the first!In the first novel, Touch of Power, we meet Avry of Kazan who possesses the ability to heal well, more like transfer the injuries to herself and then heal more quickly than others. However, after a plague tore through the land, the healers were blamed and now very few healers are lef [...]

    8. Ah,Kerry.You've found your heart. And I lost mine with that endingI get it,life isn't fair,not even in books.But I suppose that's what makes them realistic,if there is no pain and agony they don't resemble reality.Still,Avry and Kerrick had their fair share of troubles and sorrow.After her fake death,Avry wanted to spend some time being someone else,she wanted to make amends with her sister and gather intelligence on their allies' whereabouts.The real reason though behind the decision that took [...]

    9. I am so very, very glad I picked up another Maria V. Snyder book by getting my greedy little hands on Touch of Power, because I so very much love Avry and the world Snyder has constructed in Healer. The question is, can it hold up to the first book? Maybe it depends on the type of reader you are. For me it almost did, but not quite. That’s not to say that it wasn’t still a pretty damn enjoyable book.There was much less of the long walking scenes in this novel and much more of Avry doing what [...]

    10. Finishing thought: "Loved it, but hated it at the same time Maria what are you doing to me!?"Review:Once again MVS takes us into a fast paced, action filled, epic fantasy story. One thing is unlike the other stories. Kerrick gets some chapters to tell his part of the story as well! I've read this story in one amazing sitting, i just couldn't put it down.Writing 5/5Since MVS is my favorite writer in the whole universe. And I've loved everyone of her stories till this one, it shouldn't surprise an [...]

    11. Read This Review & More Like It On My Blog!2.75 out of 5A swing and a miss for veteran fantasy author Maria V. Snyder. The first novel, Touch of Power, was a great introduction to the newest series by this prolific writer, but much like what happened for me with her Study series, the sequel left a lot to be desired. It took me a while to sort out how I felt about this novel after finishing it, especially deciding on the rating. 3 stars? 2.5? I just split the difference and settled with 2.75/ [...]

    12. This book was such a disappointment to me. I had high expectations for this new series, the world is intriguing, but there is too much going on, the action is too spread out, and there are way too many characters involved. My head positively spins trying to keep track of everything.The first book was bad enough, but in this one, the action is so split that I found it hard to keep track of where everyone is. Even harder is keeping track of WHO everyone is. From the enemies to the enemies-turned-f [...]

    13. I refuse to accept this ending and demand immediate rewritting of the story or else I'll stage a strike or something. #FansOfKerrickUnite

    14. OK - 4 stars, despite that ending!I’m the kind of reader that appreciates a short recap of events of an earlier book. Usually by the time I’ve reached the next book in a series some time has passed and a memory jog is helpful. There is a fine art of doing this right and in the case of Scent of Magic, the massive info dump at the beginning of the book was a little distracting. It slowed down the narrative for the first few chapters. Once all the recapping was over, Scent of Magic became an in [...]

    15. EDIT:You.didt.just.leave.withat.ending Grrrr!!Apart from my strong resentment towards the cliffhanger, this book had so much to deliver. Gotta sleep on it and then write a review.Prior-to-release-edit:Is thatIs that hot guy in the background Kerrick? I had imagined longer hair but HOT dayum!

    16. AHH THIS BOOK THE ENDING MADE ME WANNA TEAR THE ENTIRE GALAXY APART I literally swear under my breath xD I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did with the first one, I thought the plot really drags on a lot. But I still like it :)

    17. 4.25 StarThis is a second book in this series as fist book this one is also a great book. In the star feel bad for avry and kerrick, they have to goes different way. In this book story flow great, some twist and turn appear on path take U down by surprise. In this book to much going on in the story. I like that that Snyder find a way continue her story to grow this beautiful world of healer. The main characters development is good as well as new addition of characters. Snyder has done good Synch [...]

    18. **Re-read Jan 2016I confess I was apprehensive before starting this book. I liked Touch of Power so much but I’ve heard from friends that Ms. Snyder’s series start great but tend to fizzle in the following books. I was afraid this would happen here; however, my fears were totally unfounded.Scent of Magic was exciting, fast paced and with so much action that I had my heart in my throat at the end of every section. Each chapter is told alternatively from the points of view of Avry (in first pe [...]

    19. *4,5 stars*“We don’t take orders from you, Sergeant,” Quain said. “Your man tried to assassinate—”“He isn’t mine. My man has eyes that change color with the seasons.”Loren laughed at Quain’s perplexed expression. “Oh, man, you’re not very observant, are you.”“Wait,” Quain said. “Whose eyes change color?”Scent of Magic is better than the first book, more fast-paced, even though Kerrick's chapters were sometimes slower, I liked him better than in the first book (B [...]

    20. Originally Read: December 14-16, 2012Re-Read: December 18-20, 2013*A copy was provided by Maria Snyder for review purposes*I'm not sure how to even begin this review. This is the kind of book that is hard to find the right words for. Amazing would be one, I guess.This book was very different than the first book, Touch of Power, in that it was written from to POVs, Kerrick's and Avry's. This was a good thing and a bad thing, in my opinion. Well I guess they're both bad in a way. The good/bad t [...]

    21. There’s a comfort returning to the pages and world of a favourite author: a sense of familiarity and trust that where she leads, you will follow. With this firmly in mind, I enter any Maria V. Snyder novel with excitement, and, in Scent of Magic, was well rewarded. With romance, intrigue, magic and war, I was thrilled, but even more delighted to find myself surprised.After healing the dying Prince Ryne at the cost of her life, no-one’s more surprised to find herself alive than Avry of Kazan. [...]

    22. This book wasn’t as good as the first, but I felt the entire story was more well-rounded than the first. This sequel had direction, and finally some depth to the world Snyder created. Of course, when you look at the basic components of this book, it’s very similar to a lot of other fantasy series’.Again, the Lily’s and all that is still really strange. It stands out as something really odd, for me at least, throughout the entire novel and I’m not quite sure what the author’s fascinat [...]

    23. I really liked this book. More world-building than the previous book of the trilogy. Getting to see some of the realms that were just mentioned before was fun. And seeing the fearsome northen tribes was an added boom - I expected to see them in the last book. Again I found similarities between this series and the Study one especially regarding the romantic plotline. Otherwise the story is interesting - some parts just drag you right into the world and keep you there until the end. The characters [...]

    24. "He isn't mine. My man has eyes that change color with the seasons.”Actual rating is 3.5/5 stars.This book was confusing as hell. The Death and Peace Lily thingy and all that jazz about the plague just went in and out of my head without understanding anything. Well, no, I think I was able to grasp a few things.Anyway, like I said in my review of the first book, I really enjoyed Kerrick and Avry's romance. And holy crap, this book had me shipping them so hard. Their circumstances were so frustr [...]

    25. Read for my 3-day camping trip marathon. Literally picked this right up after reading Touch of Power. 3.5 starsThis series is still not one of my all time favourite Maria V Snyder books, but I loved it all the same. There were a few surprises here and there, but I also loved delving into this world. Of exploring Avry's power, and others as well. At seeing what horrifying villain Snyder can put out, and of how kick ass her heroines are. Avry while similar to Yelena of the Study series, was also v [...]

    26. Avery is alive. Thanks to Kerrick’s offering to a peace lily that saved her from the plague. But in Kazan, survival is the exception rather than the rule. Especially when one is targeted by an evil general who has the power to control people through touch, and wields his own army of the dead.So Kerrick heads north, to try to rally his own country. And Avery chooses disguise, infiltrates a rebel army, and attempts to prepare them. For an enemy that may be unstoppable.Scent of Magic is the secon [...]
