The Magic and the Healing

The Magic and the Healing - Nick O'Donohoe There are basically two books in this: vet hijinks with fantasy animals sentient and otherwise, shadowed by the main character's looming potential terminal illness (all of which I loved!) and an epic plot about WAR and TORTURE and INEXPLICABLE FANTASYLAND KINGS MAKING TERRIBLE CHOICES (which I mostly didn't care about.) But the vet hijinks are the majority of the book, so on the whole I loved this!
