review 1: I felt like I never knew what was going on. When things finally started being explained, we were only given snippets at a time wedged between explosions, kidnappings, or fight scenes. It got to the point where I found all the action annoyingly distracting. I just wanted someon...

review 1: I loved Maria Snyder's Study series and have been eyeing her other works but I didn't plan on reading any of them yet. I was in a mood for some fantasy the other day so I grabbed this one. I couldn't put it down! The story was captivating, the characters were all so loveable and ...

review 1: *4.5 stars* I have to say, as far as sequels go, Scent of Magic was very, very solid.While I don't think I am able to say that I enjoyed the second books more than the first (because I really loved the Touch of Power), I have to admit that I was very pleased with the progression ...

review 1: Una historia muuuy interesante y atrapante, pero que nos sigue recordando que esta historia no tiene una heroína, sino un héroe: Valek. Si, Yelena será la Halladora de Almas y tendrá poderes increíbles, pero si bien está entrenándose, parecería que no tiene control sobra nada que...

review 1: I wanted to like this book. I really did. The concept was good, people with different magical abilities and Opal Cowan, a girl whose magic lies in her glass making who sets off to solve a problem in the kingdom. And here is where it started going wrong....I wasn't feeling it at a...

review 1: This story is a continuation of the 'study' Sitia chronicles. I will admit they are not quite as good. But i don't think that necessarily makes them bad books. For me the Study books with Yelena were just so captivating that in comparison the characters in the glass collection we...

review 1: Interesting world and characters that I'd like to see Jacqueline Carey write rather than this author. As the books progressed they went from engaging to tolerable to disappointing. Yelena finding out something new about magic seemed to be the solution to every illogical plot twi...

review 1: It was short- not a problem. And coming to this after having first read the trilogy, it seemed a little pointless. But, had I read this immediately after Poison Study I would have enjoyed the unique POV, the changes in Valek, and the starting show of the depth of his loyalty and ...

review 1: This is a bundle of the trilogy Poison Study, Magic Study, and Fire Study. I found this fantasy series on a recommended reading list for those who love Tamora Pierce. They certainly harken to her Wild Mage series. I like the first book the best, but they were all eminently readab...

review 1: In A Nutshell:This series enchanted me. The world created by Maria V. Snyder inspired me to believe in magic, in love, and in destiny. The characters were interesting. I was left guessing who was good and who was not until the end of each novel. The stories were enthralling. I co...

review 1: I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this book yet. It was better than the second one but still not good enough for a 4. Opal sacrificed all her magic so she is obsessed and determined to find a way to get it back. Through her experiences she has become a different person and pu...

review 1: "This is especially exciting for all my readers who have been BUGGING me about more Yelena and Valek books! Well guess what? I’ve a new contract with my publisher for four more books. One is the last book of the Healer series, TASTE OF DEATH due out December 2013, and the next th...
