Scent of Magic - Healer #2
by Maria V. Snyder
Publication Date: December 18th, 2012
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

Kerrick, her partner and sole confident, returns to Alga to summon his

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