Last week’s guest was Janice Hardy, author of The Healing Wars, a middle grade fantasy. I’ve only read the first two books in the trilogy so far: The Shifter and Blue Fire, though I will be ordering the third book soon.
This series takes us on an adventure with Nya, a fifteen-year-old girl who lives in a society where the only medical assistance anyone receives is through magically gifted people called takers who have the ability to heal through touch, take the pain into themselves, and deposit it into a special mineral. Nya, however, is a unique type of taker.
Her special skills and strong-willed attitude carry her through multiple obstacles while keeping the readers turning pages wanting to see what happens next. I highly recommend this series for roughly ages twelve and up.
