Centaur Legacy by Nancy Straight....A my choice review! May contain Spoilers

I fell in love with the Centaurs when I read Nancy Straight's, Blood Debt.    I absolutely loved it and I wanted to read more desperately.     Nancy was kind enough to send a copy of Centaur Legacy and I was lost to it until now.   (My to be read pile had morphed into a gigantic, ugly mess)   and only I could clean it up.   Gonna take lots of work.

But in my plan to clean things up, I moved Centaur Legacy to the top and voila, I read it!!!   I was not disappointed with anything in it.   Normally for me at least, a second book is rather much a letdown, but Nancy captivated me from start to finish and I thoroughly enjoyed the travels of Cami and Drake.

In this volume, Cami is able to embrace her life as a Centaur and comes into her full powers.   She is strong and capable---able to do things that make her more than able to fight in the battle for self preservation.    They traipse Ireland looking for Hercules' arrow, meet her uncle Zethus, who is far tamer than Zandra, the grandmother.  Then it's on to South Dakota to meet Cameron, Cami's twin, as it is he who has the arrow of Hercules.   We don't get to know much of Cameron in this story plot, but maybe in the next edition!

The saddest thing was that although Cameron refused to give the arrow to them, Drake read his body language and stole it.......only to the most dire of consequence.     There are always consequences to the choices we make...so be warned.

The happiest moment is when Cami's brother,Beau, claims the love of lovely Lacey, a Centauride and he will be able to remain a Centaur in the Centaur world.....although again, there will be consequences.

Cami shows fierce loyalty, and strength of heart, refuses to aceept life as it is for her and Drake, hoping and looking for a happier tomorrow and makes the decision, they must travel to Africa and confront the Centaur Council...;...I think that will be in Book three coming out in May 2013....not too long to wait, thank heaven!

I have come to the conclusion that I don't want to read too much fantasy, but I must continue with Drake and Cami's story.....I just hope I live long enough to do it.   Nancy, thank you so much for this flight of fancy--I am enjoying it to the utmost!!   Keep on dear gal, Keep On!

I give Centaur Legacy 5 winks!    Yes, indeed, 5 winks!
