    Update 1221 Check out my interview with Maria V Snyder where she takes my uestions about Scent of Magic on my blogI'm disappointed really disappointed I've heard of Maria Snyder's seuel 'curse' but I've never experienced it firsthand having never read any of her seuels 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

    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 ag

Scent of Magic

Ster and repair their estrangement And she must do it alone as Kerrick her partner and sole confident returns to Alga to summon his country into battleThough she should be in hiding Avry will do whatever she can to support Tohon’s opponents Scent of MOBI #224 Including infiltrating a holy ar Update 1221 Check out my interview with Maria V Snyder where she takes my uestions about Scent of Magic on my blogI m disappointed really disappointed I ve heard of Maria Snyder s seuel curse but I ve never experienced it firsthand having never read any of her seuels 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 bookI hate to say it but everything I loved about Touch of Power has been completely leeched from this seuel When I first met Avry she was this awesome character on the run from everyone the last healer in the Fifteen Realms She had me at that first scene when she was agonizing over whether to heal that little girl and scene after scene after that as she s facing her impending execution slowly building relationships with Kerrick and his gang deciding whether to heal Rhyne facing off against Tohon I just kept thinking wow she s such an enormously complex and conflicted character Well no because Scent of Magic drops all that in favor of plot development which barely treads water and I m sorry to report that there s almost zero character development Where s that girl who impressed me with her inner turmoil over her role in a world destroyed by plague I never found her because this entire book is just Avry doing whatever the plot mandates mostly by Tohon s machinations occasionally by someone else Jael the soldiers Avry s training or when she has the time angsting over Kerrick Avry s few scenes with her sister one of weaker parts of the first book provide one of the few glimpses into her character and just left me deeply unsatisfiedPart of it is also Snyder s choice to split up Avry from Kerrick and the two of them from everyone else The camaraderie of their little group was one of the highlights of the first book and I highly uestion Snyder s decision to send Kerrick off to do his own thing in alternating chapters of third person point of view while separating Avry from Belen and the others who we barely see and introducing new characters who just couldn t fill the hole left in the group dynamic It s not like Kerrick s mission was all that integral to the plot of the story I can see how it ll turn out as a Gondor calls for aid type situation in the next book but the whole thing felt oddly out of place in this book in the fight against Tohon like Snyder s saying here s some new stuff that doesn t fit with anything else but it ll be important later trust me but it only ends up making the chapters focusing on Avry s plan training Estrid s army against Tohon s undead while undercover really really repetitive and boring like she s in a holding pattern Then there are the parts where Avry thinks Kerrick is dead and her reactions when she gets news about him is just unbelievable and weird Actually the emotions just never felt right including with a big spoiler concerning the status of a favorite character from the last book Oh and the constant cliffhangers every time the point of view changes gets really old really fast Worse still Scent of Magic highlights a lot of the weaker aspects of the first book I d been able to brush aside previously but really can t ignore any Setting has never been this series strong suit but it s pretty obvious now the heavy character focus really carried Touch of Power Because the first chapter of this book A recap of the world building done before and it really shows how shallow the Fifteen Realms are with the characters just reciting a bunch of names lines and dots on a map What sets Kazan apart from Sogra What s uniue of Pomyt These are the little details that make reading sentences basically saying we ve just spent X days getting to town Y on the map fun well unless the characters make the journey enjoyable but this time around they didn t they were just traveling And Tohon I m appalled he was a serviceable villain in Touch of Power but now I m embarrassed from him He lets Avry get away with way too much without any rational reason basically he s only a threat because Avry s got too much of a conscience to actually kill him The handling of the Death and Peace lilies too there are some new developments and mysteries but I don t think I learned anything new about how they work that Tohon s undead the fill in the blanks geography made worse by the training and the patrols the slow pacing at the beginning and the almost blink and you ll miss it resolution of an ending it really shatters the fantasy immersionHmm the only thing that doesn t bother me is the cliffhanger ending If you pay attention to the writing what we know about Death and Peace lilies and particularly the foreshadowing it s uite obvious what s going on But I don t know what to say between the incompetent villain the flat setting Kerrick s mess of a B plot the supporting gang almost vanishing into thin air and Avry losing every interesting aspect to her character Maria Snyder what happened

My evading magic sniffers teaching forest skills to soldiers and figuring out how to stop Tohon’s most horrible creations yet an army of the walking dead human and animal alike and nearly impossible to defeatWar is coming and Avry is alone Unless she figures out how to do the impossible agai 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 eually as entrancing as the first In the first novel Touch of Power we meet Avry of Kazan who possesses the ability to heal well like transfer the injuries to herself and then heal uickly than others However after a plague tore through the land the healers were blamed and now very few healers are left Her power becomes needed by a band of rogues who have been after a Healer to cure Prince Ryne of the plague who has been in a magical stasis to prevent it worsening The group encounter many setbacks in the journey to Prince Ryne and Avry is stubborn against saving him because she knows it would kill her life But as their journey continues she grows closer to them and they soon become her friends With threats far greater to Avry s world she makes the decision to heal Prince Ryne but the magic in her world saves her as it s not done with her just yet When it comes to picking up the seuel to a book I always go into it very hesitantly because very often the second installment can be very disappointing after such a fantastic opening I felt this way when starting Scent of Magic as this was the first series I had read by Maria V Snyder so I had no prior knowledge about what to expect However as I gradually read further into the book I realised this book was eually as good as the first The book opens with Avry and Kerrick together I uite like this couple and it s cute that they both have powers healer and a forest mage and somehow they make each other stronger Avry is back from the dead somehow and soon the two are discussing what to do next They decide to reluctantly part ways Avry is to go find her sister and Kerrick is to join Prince Ryne Naturally of course things don t go to plan and Avry finds herself joining Estrid s army as a sergeant I loved this whole plot of Avry joining the army to train them to go silent within the forest and the other characters that were present during this were fantastic lots of banter fun and tension Since Avry and Kerrick are separated in this book each chapter is from Avry s point of view and at the end of each one there s about 5 or so pages from Kerrick s POV which contains what s going on with him With some books POV s can come off as the same voice which really irks me and I usually end up hating it However Snyder has given the two characters their own individual voices and I found it great to be reading Kerrick s POV so we knew what was happening with him and being captured by the tribes At first I wasn t really sure about the whole Death and Peace Lily concept when reading Touch of Power but now it seems interesting after learning details about what Tohon was doing attempting to create healers like Danny and Zila and now discovering that the Peace Lily has preserved Flea and he lives It s very interesting that Flea seems to have some kind of power and I hope to see what it is exactly in the next novel This novel kept me on my toes and I was shocked about some of the twists that Snyder incorporated such as the end scene with Avry Tohon Kerrick and Cellina I definitely wasn t expecting it at all and it makes me really happy when I don t go guess what s going to happen early on and at the end go so I was right even though it s uite satisfying knowing you were right Overall I really like Snyder s writing It flows so well the storyline is interesting and the magic concept is fantastic I m intrigued to try one of her other series and see what they are like Even though Snyder was around first if you re a fan of Sarah J Maas I think you d really like this series to read whilst you re waiting for the next book release It s also very refreshing to still be reading YA books and have the main character be older Avry is 21 I think it causes the character to feel developed and creates a better storyline I have no complaints about younger protagonists because that s what YA usually is but I just think once in a while it s nice to have a bit of a change
