My review of Centaur Rivalry by Nancy Straight

Centaur Rivalry

SYNOPSIS from Goodreads:

Centaur Rivalry (Touched #3)

The Centaur world is rocked as news spreads of the Lost Herd, Camille's existence, and her Centaur protector. A death order against Camille's father and family sends all into hiding.

Camille and Drake leave the country pursued by the Lost Herd as well as by Centaur Council enforcers. Camille's twin brother Cameron is manipulated by the Council Head and is quickly becoming her newest enemy.

Amid unexpected new protectors, enemies, and romances, Camille and Drake make their plans to travel to Africa to confront the Centaur Council. They hope acceptance of Camille as Chiron's heir, yet knowing that her link to the Lost Herd could require them to kill or to be killed.

From My Perspective:

Thus far I have read the entire Touched series.   I am still enamoured with the series, but I did find this issue to be lacking the power of the first two books.    This might have been because of so much back story about what had occurred before.    I found that unnecessarily redundant.    Camille and Drake have found the break they needed in order to get married and aided by Bianca and Gage, the wedding is planned and made official.   They have made new friends who have caused a stir as well, Jessica, a beautiful Centauride, has turned Daniel's head and though she cares deeply for him, she sees no future.    Katherine is a lapitor...arch nemesis of the Centaurs, except her line has been charged with protecting the Lost Herd.  Camille's brother Brent is strongly drawn to the human, Katherine.   Oops!   The story is engrossing and leads up to the Centaurs departure for Centauride in South Africa.   The next installment of Centaur Redemption is due out in November.....be still my beating heart, we will wait patiently, although it will be extremely difficult to do.    As always, I need the rest of the story.......

Sorry I couldn't read your review. I don't read reviews until after mine is written. I'm reading Centaur Legacy right now and loving it! Rivalry is staring at me, telling me to hurry up!
I see you gave it a good rating. That's great!
Thanks so much for sharing:)
