This is a new feature I'm starting up, because as book bloggers we all know that there are too many books to read, and not enough time. I need to know which books are must-reads and which ones I can just plain ignore.This week: Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
For which I turn to you, my readers! I'll pick a book each week that I'm wondering about, and you can tell me if I should GET IT...or just FORGET IT.
I loved Poison Study, but was not particularly gripped by the other two in the series (in fact, I think I just skimmed them). What I've read about Snyder's Healer series suggests that it also goes downhill somewhat after the first book. So I'm wondering: is the first book worth getting, in and of itself? Or does it just set up for a series that will ultimately be disappointing and unsatisfying? I'd love some more Poison Study-esque magic in my life, but don't want to end up feeling like I've wasted my time and/or money...
Vote! What do you think: get it, or forget it? And then leave a comment letting me know why!
