Why?? Maria V Snyder How could you??I had the opportunity to read the ARC of Touch of Power over a year ago and absolutely loved it Avry Kerrick Belen Flea and the monkeys had such great chemistry and their adventures really sucked me in Although I would have to say I loved the first book way but worry not because this one far from disappointsFirst of all I really liked how Snyder found a way to continue the concepts from the first book The gang has to find a way to stop Tohon before he brings war to the 15 Realms In the meantime they have to warn everyone about the unusual army and figure out the secrets of the Peace and Death Lilies as well as any possible connection tying them togetherThe other thing is usually when a character goes through so much they tend to change in the second book as they either become depressed or really angry I liked that Avry continued to be the character that I loved so much in book 1 She was so selfless no matter friend or foe She was brave and determined and she had that spark that made her so admirableHOWEVEROne of the reasons why I thought the first book was so great is because of the supporting characters In this one they kind of had their own roles and even though it's all part of the big plan and the camaraderie is still there this book lacked that interaction between the gang Don't get me wrong there are scenes where they are together and you do see that fondness they have for each other along with the great dialogue Along with that was that Avry and Kerrick had their own roles to play so this book doesn't have that tension and the constant bickering that intrigued me And there are new friends but it's just not the same And my favorite character was hardly in the book The other thing is this book alternates between Avry's and Kerrick's point of view and as much as I love Kerrick I almost wished his part or maybe the majority of it was cut out for this book Now before all of you Kerrick fans start grabbing your pitchforks his POV was kind of a side story because they did not share the length as Avry's Also I kind of felt his adventures were kind of insignificant for lack of a better word at least in this book especially compared to Ryne's or other characters in this bookI'm sure his scenes lead up to the next one but I almost felt as if Snyder used his POV because they had to be separated and TOP fans would be upset if Kerrick wasn't in it For me however it was frustrating because it kept interrupting the story especially because of the way she ended each chapter just about all of them were so climatic they were a mini cliffhanger It's like watching TV and they give you that surprising dum dum dum right before you cut to commercial break It was infuriating because I wanted to kno what happened next And by the time I got back to Avry's point of view some of that anticipation has kind of worn off so I just didn't feel as excited about it I don't think I would have missed much if he recounted his tale as other characters did or even make his story a novella or make them longer scenes and fewer parts that constantly interrupt Avry's storyAnd the end OMG Only this time there wasn't another chapter for me to find out Why oh why?Sigh I guess I'll just have to wait another year as Snyder has announced that Taste of Death the conclusion to this trilogy will be out December 2013 However the name does not sound to promising now does it? OMG THERES A SECOND ONE?healer #2 click scrolls down Expected publication 2013 what the — UPDATEPhew It's been changed to December 2012 But still WHY CAN'T THE BOOK BE ALREADY PUBLISHED
