Touch of Power - Maria V. Snyder 4.5 stars. Maria V. Snyder's last few (er, five) novels have disappointed me, but she is back to nearly Poison Study levels of awesome in Touch of Power. I couldn't put this book down. I'm pretty upset that the next book won't be out until 2013, but at least this book didn't end on a giant cliffhanger. It wrapped itself up quite nicely, but still leaves plenty of room for future books. I love it when authors actually conclude their story arcs in one book, regardless of the length of the series. A+ to Ms. Snyder on that front.I hope to be able to write a more review-y review later, but with the insane levels of busy I've been lately, I don't know that it's very likely. But this book deserves a full review. You should read it.
