Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My Choice for this week is:
By: Maria V. Snyder
Publication Date: December 20, 2011
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....
My Thoughts: Have you seen that cover?!?!?! Even if you have, scroll up and look again! I would buy this book for the cover alone, but then you see that the book has "brains behind the beauty" (haha). The story seems so interesting! I just HAVE to get this book!
