THEY DESTROYED HER WORLD. BUT SHE’S THEIR ONLY HOPE...
power to heal the sick should earn her respect in the plague-torn land
of Kazan. Instead she is feared. Her kind are blamed for the horrifying
disease that has taken hold of the nation. When Avry uses her forbidden
magic to save a dying child, she faces the guillotine. Until a dark,
mysterious man rescues her from her prison cell. His people need Avry’s
magic to save their dying prince. The very prince who first unleashed
the plague on Kazan.
Saving the prince is certain to kill Avry –
yet she already faces a violent death. Now she must choose – use her
healing touch to show the ultimate mercy or die a martyr to a lost
cause? From Goodreads
I am enjoying Maria V. Snyder's books. Avry is most likely the last of her kind and there is a death sentence for using her power. She is saved but in return has to heal a prince that she always thought was the enemy. Another book where I already have the next book and want to read it soon.
