Review by wyvernfriend
I quite enjoyed this but occasionally the echoes of Poison Study were occasionally a bit loud. There were enough differences to make it interesting but at the same time it felt sameish.Avry is a healer in a world where there's a bounty on their heads, where she lives in fear of being caught and killed, but where also her healing gifts almost compel her to heal. The bounty is there because the healers couldn't control the plague that swept through the world and killed many people. Avry is rescued by a group of people determined to get her to help them heal their prince but what they don't know is that she heals by taking on the illness and healing it quicker than most. However the plague has killed healers, she may have to choose between her life and a better future for others and she's not sure who to trustI liked it, I liked the characters and I'm really curious about the Death Lilies which will mean that I will be reading more in this series.
