about

A dangerous secret. A deadly skill.

Nya is an orphan struggling for survival in a city crippled by war. She is also a Taker—with her touch, she can heal injuries, pulling pain from another person into her own body. But unlike her sister, Tali, and the other Takers who become Healers, Nya's skill is flawed: she can't push that pain into pynvium, the enchanted metal used to store it. All she can do is shift it into another person, a dangerous skill that she must keep hidden. If discovered, she could be used as a human weapon.

But one day Nya pushes her luck too far and exposes her secret to a pain merchant eager to use her shifting ability for his own sinister purposes. She refuses—until Tali and other League Healers start disappearing mysteriously. Now Nya must decide: How far will she go to get Tali back alive?

Janice Hardy is also the author ofThe ShifterandBlue Fire, the first two books in the Healing Wars trilogy. She lives in Georgia with her husband, four cats, and one nervous freshwater eel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Read For it being a young readers book, it's still a good book to read. The concept of their healing powers is very intriguing, and the world is very interesting. Would recommend to anyone interested in books with superpowers and a fantasy world. One of the best books I've read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Read Nya is an orphan struggling for survival in a city crippled by war. She is also a Taker—with her touch, she can heal injuries, pulling pain from another person into her own body. But unlike her sister, Tali, and the other Takers who become Healers' League apprentices, Nya's skill is flawed: She can't push that pain into pynvium, the enchanted metal used to store it. All she can do is shift it into another person, a dangerous skill that she must keep hidden from forces occupying her city. If discovered, she'd be used as a human weapon against her own people" The first book in The Healing Wars series by Janice Hardy. I read this in a morning as it was impossible to put down. The main character Nya was courageous, strong and self sacrificing-everything you want a heroine to be. Nya struggled with her abilities; knowing they could help her get the very things in life she desperately wanted and also save her sister but at what cost? Inflicting horrific pain on others to save someone she loved? Who is worthy of being healed and who should be tortured? A plot driven story that also had wonderful character development. www.lostinthelibrary.com
