Review: Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder

I really like Avery.  She risks her life over and over to do what she feels needs to be done.  Avery cares about others and worries about them and does not give up. Avery is 20 years old healer who has been running and hiding out.  She has a price of 20 gold coins if she is caught and turned in as a healer.
The people of the fifteen realms has been wiped out by a plaque that some people feel the healers started and that they don't want to heal anybody from it.  What the people don't know that when they first started to treat plaques a lot of healers died.
Avery knows that the two year old downstairs is dyeing and she has to save him. Avery does and then is really sick from it and before she can run the grateful father turned her over she is to be hung in the morning. But Avery felt healing the 2 year old worth her life.
Kerrick for the past 2 years has been looking for a healer and with his gang rescues Avery and plans to take her to a far land and have her heal Prince Ryne from the plaque. Avery holds him accountable for the deaths of her father and brother. She doesn't want to heal him and die herself.
Kerrick plans to make her heal Ryne.  So why he is treating her bad they are also running from the town guards and mercenaries. Trying to convince her that Ryne might be able to stop all the wars and killings.
It has a lot of action, fun, magic, heroes and bad guys. It flows from one action to another but their is also humor,love,friendship and sorrow. We get to know a little about each character a little bit at a time.  I hope their will be more books from this series because I don't want it to end.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
