THE HEALER'S LEGACY is a captivating fantasy novel. Kira, the main character, is very likable because she is believable. I saw her as a very principled, and very troubled, individual. How could she not be, with the Warlord Toril essentially chasing her to the very ends of the continent. Her companions are a wyvern and a moon cat, whom she is able to communicate with telepathically. When the story opens, she manages to escape from Toril's guards. She then crosses the continent, helping to heal a gnome child along the way (a very important event later), fights for her life with a rock troll in a vicious storm and ends up at Tem Hold. What happens then? Read the book and find out! I will say that the ending was most satisfactory and definitely left the door open to a sequel. That said, I thank Sharon Skinner for writing a novel I could lose myself in for awhile. I look forward to the stories that follow.

Kira, a girl with strange powers and a mysterious heritage, flees her violent and powerful husband. Along the way, she makes new friends, new enemies, and the possibility of new love. But will her past catch up with her and destroy all she now holds dear or will she conquer her demons before it's too late? Told in an engaging, page-turning style, The Healer's Legacy is a must read for any fantasy fan. I can't wait for book two!

Wow! Great read from a new author! I couldn't put it down! When's the next one coming out? I really liked seeing a woman be strong and fighting for herself. My only complaint is I wanted it to be longer!
