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.
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.
This was a DNF for me. I got almost halfway and I just couldn’t go on. I didn’t care about any of it, not the past nor the present. There was also no sense of urgency.
The pace was good, it kept the story moving but there just wasn’t any feeling of excitement, again, I just couldn’t bring myself to care.
Now here, in my journal is where I actually scratched out five lines because I had read another book and I started writing the review of that one for those five lines before I noticed and scratched it out. I left it like that, I didn’t even try to write over it, that’s how much I don’t remember.
The cover is alright, the writing just didn’t make me feel any connections or emotions.
The most important part of any book is the writing, plot and the style that makes it a good read. This book has all three.
The language flowed easily and I found the characters interesting. The story was good, enough to keep you attached to the book until you read it.
Looking forward to reading Book 2.
