Touch of Power

Haar gave om zieken te genezen levert de jonge Avry niet het gewenste respect op Integendeel Al jarenlang wordt haar soort opgejaagd en vermoord en als verantwoordelijk aangewezen voor het verspreiden van een epidemie die duizenden het leven kostteAls Avry haar gave gebruikt om een stervend kind te redden wo. LOL Every little star counts Such shamelessness Okay so how weird is this I have the audio copy of TOP and it s read by Gabra Zackman who did a fantastic job on my Study books So I wanted to listen to a couple chapters of TOP to see how Gabra did the voices and pronounced the character namesI m on Chapter 11 I ve gotten sucked into my own book how weird is that I ll blame Gabra She brings the story to life it s a different experience from reading the book as she s acting it out with the various voices and the sarcasm and I ve actually laughed out loud so strange and fun She reads uain with a Scottish accent not uite what I d imaginedbut I ve grown used to it and now I can t hear him any other way Flea is perfect and Kerrick s a bitoff but I m not sure how he s supposed to sound Mom is also perfect and Belen sounds just like Poppa BearI m going to try and make sure Gabra reads all my books from now on A good reader makes all the differenceI finished a few days ago I really loved Tohon s voice his was so silky and dangerous And now I have all their voices in my head as I write TASTE OF DEATH book 3

Or het uitbreken van de epidemie in KazanHet redden van de prins betekent zo goed als zeker Avry’s dood maar een echt leven had ze toch al nooit En nu moet ze kiezen – haar gave gebruiken om de ultieme vorm van barmhartigheid te tonen of te sterven in het nu al verloren gevecht voor erkenning van haar vo. Spoilers I enjoyed Snyder s Study series and I had high expectations for this suffice to say it didn t deliver Avry is a healer she s been running and hiding for three years as anyone found to be a healer is executed the healers are blamed for starting a plague that killed millions of people Avry is in prison awaiting execution after it is discovered that she is a healer she s saved from death by Kerrick and his friends who want her to heal their friend who is dying of the plague Avry finds out that the friend who needs healing is Prince Ryne someone who she refuses to heal as she believes that he is responsible for many deaths and is not worth saving Avry very reluctantly agrees to go with them to where Prince Ryne is hiding as the alternative would be death and Kerrick and his friends Belen Flea Loren try to convince Avry that he is worth saving On their long journey to Prince Rynethey are encounter enemies magicians killer plants and zombies The world building was mediocre at best I did like that Avry suffered every time she healed someone I despised Avry s attitude she was treated like shit and she just forgave and forgot instantly she felt guilty and responsible for anyone who was hurt even if they had hurt her or stood by and watched her get hurt she gave her loyalty too easily it was unbelievably frustrating Kerrick her love interest was despicable he slapped her so hard she fell down just because she said she would not heal his friend Prince Ryne he then goes onto manacle her to tree for weeks at night and only gives her little food and no blanket as further punishment for refusing to heal his friend he is cold and talks down to her he only starts treating her better when he realises his tactics to make her co operate are not working When he does start to get feelings for her he s not guilty or remorseful about the way he treated her he just gives a very underwhelming apology and Avry doesn t even mind his past treatment of her He s also been grieving for the past 4 years because his ex girlfriend who was the love his life dumped him for someone else Avry is basically a rebound He or less even says at the very end when they re in wuv that he would have rather saved his friend s lives than her s He s an awful hero and Avry is a crap heroine for getting involved with a man who hit her and then tortured her for weeks it s a fucked up message to be sending young readers

I avoided reading this book for a long time I d loved Poison Study but the word on the street was that the rest of the Study series wasn t great and that Poison Study had been beginners luck But I was kind of blown away by how much I loved Touch of Power I simply couldn t put it down and that flabbergasted meThis is one of those walking fantasy books where the characters spend a LOOOOOOONNNNGGGG TIIIIIIIIiiiimmmmeee goooooooooiiiiiinnnng plaaaaaaaaceeeees However there s also heaps of action world building and just a bit of naughty no no shenanigans so keep that in mind too In fact it was the perfect blend of walking kick something s ass flirt and walk again to keep me glued to the page like some kind of junkee holding out for their next hitWe re in this recently plague ridden world that s trying to pull itself back together and multiple kingdoms are struggling to reclaim power after many of the old ones have collapsed and fallen Avry s trying to live in this world but the problem is that she s this badass healer and everyone is trying to kill her Enter KerrickHe kidnaps her against her will to heal his prince and thus begins our merry adventure Let s start with the fact that Avry kicks butt I love her and I hope that one day I can find a girl just like her to marry and spend the rest of my life with Kerrick on the otherhand can die a fiery death in the Pit of Despair for all I care Avry was too good for you Okay so he eventually became bearable and I eventually stopped plotting his demise The point is when you hold all tickets for the Annoying Douche Train then you need to seriously consider riding it all the way to Getthefuckoutsville dudeBut luckily there is this cast of characters that I just loved with the passion of a thousand One Direction fans who ve just read a HarryThat scrawny one fanfic Belen and Flea particularly were adorable whilst Loren and uain tended to blend into each other It was also the bad guy Tohan that kind of helped make this book He was so psychotic swinging like a pendulum between titillatingly evil and just plain terrifyingThe writing was certainly fantastic with rich and vivid descriptions of the countryside and people It was very well paced never boring or painful to read The world building was interesting even if there were a couple of strange oddities to construction of Avry s abilities and the over all way it ties into the storyBut in the end I was left bereft when this finished Desirous of the seuel like a widow who just lost her lover In the end isn t that what matters most Otherwise what are we all here for This review and others like it can be found on my blog
