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 battleThough she should be in hiding Avry will do whatever she can to support Tohon’s opponents Including infiltrating a holy army evad. Update 1221 Check out my interview with Maria V Snyder where she takes my uestions about Scent of Magic on my blogI m disappointed really disappointed I ve heard of Maria Snyder s seuel curse but I ve never experienced it firsthand having never read any of her seuels Though that s probably a good thing because from what I can tell Scent of Magic is Magic Study all over again a letdown that wastes much of the promise of the first bookI hate to say it but everything I loved about Touch of Power has been completely leeched from this seuel When I first met Avry she was this awesome character on the run from everyone the last healer in the Fifteen Realms She had me at that first scene when she was agonizing over whether to heal that little girl and scene after scene after that as she s facing her impending execution slowly building relationships with Kerrick and his gang deciding whether to heal Rhyne facing off against Tohon I just kept thinking wow she s such an enormously complex and conflicted character Well no because Scent of Magic drops all that in favor of plot development which barely treads water and I m sorry to report that there s almost zero character development Where s that girl who impressed me with her inner turmoil over her role in a world destroyed by plague I never found her because this entire book is just Avry doing whatever the plot mandates mostly by Tohon s machinations occasionally by someone else Jael the soldiers Avry s training or when she has the time angsting over Kerrick Avry s few scenes with her sister one of weaker parts of the first book provide one of the few glimpses into her character and just left me deeply unsatisfiedPart of it is also Snyder s choice to split up Avry from Kerrick and the two of them from everyone else The camaraderie of their little group was one of the highlights of the first book and I highly uestion Snyder s decision to send Kerrick off to do his own thing in alternating chapters of third person point of view while separating Avry from Belen and the others who we barely see and introducing new characters who just couldn t fill the hole left in the group dynamic It s not like Kerrick s mission was all that integral to the plot of the story I can see how it ll turn out as a Gondor calls for aid type situation in the next book but the whole thing felt oddly out of place in this book in the fight against Tohon like Snyder s saying here s some new stuff that doesn t fit with anything else but it ll be important later trust me but it only ends up making the chapters focusing on Avry s plan training Estrid s army against Tohon s undead while undercover really really repetitive and boring like she s in a holding pattern Then there are the parts where Avry thinks Kerrick is dead and her reactions when she gets news about him is just unbelievable and weird Actually the emotions just never felt right including with a big spoiler concerning the status of a favorite character from the last book Oh and the constant cliffhangers every time the point of view changes gets really old really fast Worse still Scent of Magic highlights a lot of the weaker aspects of the first book I d been able to brush aside previously but really can t ignore any Setting has never been this series strong suit but it s pretty obvious now the heavy character focus really carried Touch of Power Because the first chapter of this book A recap of the world building done before and it really shows how shallow the Fifteen Realms are with the characters just reciting a bunch of names lines and dots on a map What sets Kazan apart from Sogra What s uniue of Pomyt These are the little details that make reading sentences basically saying we ve just spent X days getting to town Y on the map fun well unless the characters make the journey enjoyable but this time around they didn t they were just traveling And Tohon I m appalled he was a serviceable villain in Touch of Power but now I m embarrassed from him He lets Avry get away with way too much without any rational reason basically he s only a threat because Avry s got too much of a conscience to actually kill him The handling of the Death and Peace lilies too there are some new developments and mysteries but I don t think I learned anything new about how they work that Tohon s undead the fill in the blanks geography made worse by the training and the patrols the slow pacing at the beginning and the almost blink and you ll miss it resolution of an ending it really shatters the fantasy immersionHmm the only thing that doesn t bother me is the cliffhanger ending If you pay attention to the writing what we know about Death and Peace lilies and particularly the foreshadowing it s uite obvious what s going on But I don t know what to say between the incompetent villain the flat setting Kerrick s mess of a B plot the supporting gang almost vanishing into thin air and Avry losing every interesting aspect to her character Maria Snyder what happened
