Centaur Legacy (Touched #2) by Nancy Straight

Centaur Legacy - Nancy Straight

As you may or may not know, I have only recently been sucked into the world of the Centaurs and thoroughly enjoyed Book 1 (Blood Debt). The question for me was what if the first book was the big bang and then the rest of the series was a whimper? Trust me when I say I really shouldn't have worried. The second book is just as good as the first, if not better, as this is the book where we learn even more about the characters and they all become old friends... or as in the case of Zandra, hated enemies! I'm still trying to figure her out because surely no one can be THAT evil, can they? I guess I'll have to wait and see because as of now, she's still horrible!

As for the other characters, Daniel's still around. I'm not sure about him. I want to like him as he is Cami's best friend but he just acts like such an arse at times! Beau makes more of a show in this book so I was very happy with that - and he's still my favourite brother. One of the best things for me though is watching Cami grow. For such a caring and compassionate woman, she sure can be bad-ass when she wants or needs to be. She is exactly what Drake needs as he is still struggling to leave behind some of the Centaur values that really don't make much sense in this day and age.

Like I said, this book goes a bit deeper and you actually get to meet some of the 'myths' of Greek Lore, Harmonia and Zeus to be precise. This was simply nectar from the Gods for a history freak like me.

There is a twist in the end of this tale which you may or may not see coming. I didn't but then I happily sit back and let the book take me on a journey. Loved this book and I'm already on Book 3 (review to follow too). Absolutely fantastic and definitely recommended.
