Four days ago, I had never heard of Teagan Kearney. I have a hunch I'll be getting more acquainted with her work.
I don't normally like vampire stories. I do, however, enjoy the occasional paranormal/super natural tale. When I began Healer's Magic, I saw that it was a book about vampires of sorts and I was prepared to hate it. Boy, was I wrong. Kearney managed to tap almost immediately into my "willing suspension of disbelief" to the degree that I wondered if there was a part of this world I was missing. Gently, poignantly, the author drew me into her tale of healing, paranormal beings, romance and suspense.
Kearney has a masterful grasp of language and especially "normal" language one would hear on the street or from your kids. She uses that mastery to build a startling urban fantastical world that is just plain ordinary. Her heroine is a women who is stronger than she realizes at the beginning of the book.All the main characters and those supporting Tatya (heroine) both in real time and in flashbacks fit the narrative wonderfully. Her friends and "lovers" support and try to tear Tatya apart - figuratively and literally. The romance is not at all sexual and in spite of high drama, there is no cussing as might be found in other works of this sort.
I really enjoyed the mysticism - both modern Native American and ancient tribal - that Kearney works into this volume. Again, the author skillfully weaves modern and ancient cultures that lead up to a bombastic conclusion.
This is book one of a three part series. It is a stand alone volume although there are a couple of cliffhangers at the end that Kearney inserts to tease readers on to the rest of the series.
I certainly will continue reading this series and likely discover more work by Teagan Kearney.
There were a few minor grammar, spelling and punctuation issues found, most in the form of an extra word added or missing in the narrative. The misuse of the word 'passed' when 'past' was the intent, was a minor irritation for this reader. However, the story was impelling enough that these issues did not overly detract this reader from the tale. Kearney wrote detailed settings that were easily visualized by this reader, giving her the feel that she was trailing alongside of Tatya throughout her journey. Character's were detailed enough to visualize, and their dialogue was natural sounding and believable. This reader felt an almost immediate affinity to the character Vanse, and was really hoping he would win his love back - time will tell, on that issue.
"Healer's Magic" is the first of a series and an intriguing beginning to the world Kearney created. The romance is fairly subtle, yet oddly 'hot' at the same time, and no cursing that this reader recalls, so is suitable for the young adult crowd on up. This reader loves discovering 'new-to-me' writer's to add to her bookshelves, and found that in Kearney. I'm certain I shall continue on with this series and do recommend the book.
Note: Healer's Magic is the third (and latest) version, this book was also released under two additional titles: Tatya's Return and Power Rising. The series was renamed from Samsara to Kala Trilogy... so, watch for duplicates of this book/series.
Mmm, lots of things to like in this unique story line, such as the good writing style, but I never really understood why Vanse liked Tatya.To get into the specifics of what I didn't "get" about this pairing would ruin the plot for other readers, so I'll refrain fro being more direct. I found Tatya to be short-tempered and narrow-minded. She was not a character I ever grew to like, although, I was able to sympathize with her on some occasions.
Healer's Magic was a good story line, with unusual twists and, because I realize other readers may not feel as negative about the main heroine, I decided not to reduce this review/rating based on my personal dislike of the MC. Vanse could have been a stronger character, which may have balanced Tatya, but bending to her moods made him feel weak. Not a story for me, but I see a lot in the writing that others would probably enjoy. I'd read something else from this writer, as I enjoyed her way of telling the tale.
