I absolutely love the Touched Series by Nancy Straight, so when I saw that Centaur Redemption had been released, I snapped it up right away, though I have to say that I am not crazy about the cover.
Here is the Goodreads description:
Cami and Drake’s honeymoon is cut short as they escape attacks by the Council Enforcers and head to South Africa for the meeting of the Centaur Council, which has ordered a death sentence on Cami and all members of the Lost Herd. The Council Chairman is her grandmother, her most dangerous foe. Surrounded by family and friends, Drake and Cami face the Council, Cami’s power-hungry uncles, an ambitious twin, taking the battle all the way to Zeus to attempt to win the freedom of the Tak herd.
This book was really bittersweet for me. I was all set to give it 5 stars, but then ending kind of threw me. It was kind of sad and yet hopeful, and I am not really sure how I feel about it. I think an epilogue would have gone a long way toward making this story feel more complete. There are supposed to be more books set in this world later, so maybe that was why we didn’t get one? I don’t know, but I really think this book would have benefited from one.
Also, I would have liked to have seen more of Cami’s brothers. I feel like her relationship with them, especially Beau and Brent was a huge part of this series and that interaction was basically non-existent in this book. In fact, I feel like most of the main characters from before were kind of pushed into the background. This book was really just about Camille and, to a lesser extent, Cameron. I think this book fell a little short because of that.
On the other hand, the overall story line was pretty good. I was maybe hoping for a little more action since that was kind of a big part of the previous book, but overall the story progressed well and did not really feel forced or anything. I really would like to talk more about what I did like, but I think that would be way to spoilery, so I will just say that I am definitely looking forward to more Centaur books in the future.
