Blog Tour - The Healer



About the book: After successfully completing his first-year professorship, Welsh folklore expert Chris Pendragon has earned a vacation. At least that's what the young scholar tells himself—but deep down he feels an urgency to reassess his life, to find a sense of purpose. Hoping that perhaps a trip to Wales will provide the answers he seeks, Chris embarks on a journey of self-discovery. But he could never have anticipated the unimaginable adventure that awaits him ...

Shortly after his arrival in Wales, Chris is witness to a horrific accident with more far-reaching consequences than he could have dreamed. Following Chris's heroic rescue of one of the victims, an unexplainable phenomenon is revealed: bones that had been broken were made whole with Chris's touch. Still reeling form this discovery, Chris is approached by a wizened old man with an implausible answer: Chris has been chosen to be the bearer of the Dial, a healer of unparalleled power. But the calling is fraught with peril, and Chris soon discovers there are those who will stop at nothing to seize the power of the Dial. With the help of a beautiful, if skeptical, doctor, Chris must choose: go back to the life he was leading or embark on a thrilling new destiny. 

My review: This book is kind of crazy, in a good way! It starts out with a car accident and never lets up from there. I loved how it was filled with action, adventure, and the mystery of just what has happened to Chris. I really liked Chris, he seemed like a genuinely nice guy who just wants to help others, even when he knows that he might be in danger himself. I loved the setting of Wales, I could almost picture being there, even though I've never been. I really enjoyed the plot, it left me wanting to know what happened to Chris all throughout the book. The ending was great, but I still want to know what will happen to Chris and his abilities. Will he live a really long time like Nick? Or will he somehow end up dying an early death. This book is full of Welsh tales so incredible you won't believe them. You won't want to put it down!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
