Orphaned by war, haunted by unknown origins, and chased by a warlord and his army of brutal soldiers.
KIRA is a young woman with a secret. She can psychically communicate with animals. She is also on the run from her abusive mate Toril, the hero turned warlord, who led the country’s forces to victory against the outland raiders. Only that was before his love of power consumed him. Now, his only focus is on tracking down Kira and making her punishment an example of his power.
But the quest for freedom isn’t the only struggle Kira faces. She must also come to terms with her past choices, whose echoes drive her present. And now, the future of the land and people she has come to love depends on the decisions she will be forced to make.
"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
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."--Ronald Tobin
