MARIA V. SNYDER; Scent of Magic cover preview

Scent of Magic is the second book in Maria's newest series, Healer. If you haven't yet read book one, Touch of Magic, please do. It's a really great read, with strong female and male characters battling against the odds. Below is the American/Canada cover due to be released in 2013. I can't wait to see what the Australian cover looks like!!

I personally think, in this cover, Kerrick and Avery look a little too old to be the protagonists of a YA novel. I always imaged Avery to be closer to 18 or 19.

As the last Healer in the Fifteen Realms, Avery of Kazan is in a unique position: in the minds of her friends and foes alike, she no longer exists. Despite her need to prevent the megalomanical King Tohon from winner control of the Realms, Avery is also determined to find her sister and repair their estrangement. And she must do it alone, as Kerrick, her partner and sole confident, returns to Alga to summon his country into battle.

Though she should be in hiding, Avery will do whatever she can to support Tohon's opponents. Including infiltrating a holy army, evading magic sniffers, teaching forest skills to soldiers and figuring out how to stop Tohon's most horrible creations yet; an army of the walking dead - human and animal alike and nearly impossible to defeat.

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