Scent of Magic

12027429Goodreads Synopsis:    Hunted, Killed—Survived?

As the last Healer in the Fifteen Realms, Avry of Kazan is in a unique position: in the minds of her friends and foes alike, she no longer exists. Despite her need to prevent the megalomanical King Tohon from winning control of the Realms, Avry is also determined to find her sister 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 battle.

Though she should be in hiding, Avry will do whatever she can to support Tohon’s opponents. Including infiltrating a holy army, 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 defeat.

War is coming and Avry is alone. Unless she figures out how to do the impossible ... again.

My Thoughts:

-    I liked and hated the two stories and perspectives. I didn't like how it changed from first person to 3rd person. There was already a lot going on with Avry and the war, and I don't think more trouble was needed. However, in the end, I kinda liked the new race of people introduced.

-    The guy on the cover is weird. I don't know why he is there, and it looks way out of place.

-    I wish Avry and Kerrick had more time together. I feel bad for them, and I think they can do so much more together. They make an unstoppable team!

-    I didn't like how much time the book spent on Avry teaching other soldiers to walk through the forest. I felt like a lot of the stuff in the middle was filler and it slowed down the story.

-    All the twists and surprises were awesome! I didn't see a few things coming.

-    I love the characters! Snyder has an amazing talent for creating wonderful and lovable characters.

-    Quain and Loren remind me of Ari and Janco a little bit.

-    Great story, but OH the ending! I can't wait to read the next book.
