Heart Of The Healer

Heart of the Healer by Linda Mooney/DCL Publications/Australia/ebook/238pags

From the province of Skandia comes Mareesa a healer of remarkable power. As the old healer of the ruler of Bothe has died and they request Skandia for a new healer, Mareesa petitions the council of healers for the position. As Mareesa is of the royal house in Skandia her petition is accepted. This is her one chance to get away from the soldier that has abused her. When she arrives in Bothe Homes, who is the ruler, tests Mareesa to see how great her healing powers are by severely cutting his arm. Mareesa heals him but loses consciousness while doing so. Homes’ nephew Querl catches her when she falls and carries her to her room and watches over her until she regains consciousness. As Querl and Mareesa become closer they try to figure out who is trying to kill Homes and Querl. When Querl is attacked and almost killed Mareesa heals him at the risk of her own life. Querl rushes Mareesa back home to Skandia so the other healers can restore her health. She lives but is back in close proximity to the solider so her life is still in danger from him. Shortly after returning to Bothe Querl receives an urgent summons to return to Skandia. There he finds Mareesa in danger and must fight the soldier to save her. Querl takes her back to Bothe but they still need to find out who is behind the attacks. When it is reveled who is behind the attacks and why. It really makes for a great twist in the story.

This is a great book and a must read. The story keeps you enthralled to the point you don’t want to put it down. The author did a great job of building the characters and story line. I would love to read more from this author.

I give this book 4-1/2 red roses. Larena
