This is another in a great line of books from my favorite author Nancy Straight! The story picks up right after the first book and continues the adventure of Cami and Drake as they try to find a way to protect the love they are fighting to hold on to. This story introduces new, loveable characters and has a few surprised in store! Full of romance and twists, I was swept up from the first chapter and joined in as the adventure unfolded. I'm anxious to read the next in the series and to continue ...more

When I first stumbled upon "Blood Debt" by Nancy Straight, I was enamored and in awe of the incredible world-building. So, I was anxiously awaiting the release of the second book, "Centaur Legacy." Yet, I must be honest, I was also a little afraid. How many times have I enjoyed the first book in a series but then the subsequent books were just okay. Well, honey, let me tell you there is nothing to worry about here. "Centaur Legacy" is just as good as the first book if not better!

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

I loved the first book in this series Blood Debt, but for some reason after reading it I never got around to picking up the rest of this series. So when the author told me about a tour she was doing for this series and I got the chance to read and review the rest of the series, I immediately jumped on the chance.

Centaur Legacy surprised me just like Blood Debt did, I knew I loved Blood Debt, but I had forgotten how much until I got back into this

So what is in this book? Centaurs, magic, romance, all the characters you know and love (or hate *coughZandracough*), new characters, gods/goddesses, an entire history of Centaurs, Centaur politics, a bit of mystery, betrayal, and so much more. I only found one editing error (maybe) and because I was so engrossed with the book, I refused to stop to write it down...whoops.

Although I didn't have any problems with it, in the last book others complained that it was confusing when the POV changed. Ms
Camille Benning and Drake Nash are on the run after escaping from Camile’s grandmother, Camille Benning. The only hope for them is to find the ancient arrow being held somewhere in the Thessaly pasture in Ireland. From Ireland, their hunt for the arrow and Camille’s mysterious twin takes them to South Dakota where more dangers than they can imagine are waiting for them.

Camille’s father and his family immediately jump into action to help Camille. Specifically Beau and Camille’s best friend Daniel

Wowza! I honestly did not think it could better but guess what - I was wrong!
I loved the story start to finish. Although I would not mind having book 3 now. The wait will be torture.
The second book has it all and then some.
Drake! Yes he is defined by just his name people come on. Fell madly deeply with him. Can we really just off Zandra please? Pretty please with sugar on top? Lol. I keep trying to find redeeming something with her and she simply just makes me mad. Haha. Daniel.. Well love hi

Nancy Straight continues to give us fun with centaurs in her second book of the "Touched" series, "Centaur Legacy." This book was a great addition to the series for me, because it answered a lot of the questions I had after finishing the first book, "Blood Debt." It had seemed like Cami's new family was too good to be true, and now the dark side of her father and his lineage is coming to light. "Centaur Legacy" picks up right where the firs

After getting a copy of the book last night, I hid under the covers with my iPad from my hubby and read all the way through. **Too anxious to sit.. pacing** I NEED Straight to finish the third book ASAP or I just might have an aneurysm.

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,

WOW!!! Ms Nancy has blown me away again!! There is so much going on as this wonderful story continues! It's a beautiful, yet slightly darker story than book one. Poor Camille, it seems like everyone just wants something from her... And all of those "something's" are pretty much lethal to her. I mean, this is crazy the amount of hardships this poor girl has to go to. And yet, she's my hero!! She's beautiful and strong, and smart, and when most people would give up she sticks to her guns!

Need. More. Now.


I adore Nancy Straight. There is no doubt about that. If I were to make a list of my top favorite indie authors, she'd certainly be on that list. Heck, if I made a list of my top favorite authors IN GENERAL, she'd most likely be on it. Because I adore her. So book 2 in the Touched series? Well, it made my day when it sauntered up into my inbox. Why? Because I loved book 1. And book 2? I LOVED IT EVEN MORE.

Nancy Straight has become one of my favorite authors as well as a dear friend. I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Centaur Legacy, and I was glued to the page throughout the book.

Sometimes multiple points of view are hard to follow, but Nancy has done a fantastic job of helping the reader keep track.

I just finished my second read, yes this book is that good, and I loved it even more this time.

I was absolutely excited waiting for Centaur Legacy's release day, so prepared to buy the book as soon as it was available. So when Nancy offered to give me a free copy I couldn't wait to read it. "Blood Debt" was the very first book I had read by Nancy. As soon as I had started reading it I did not put it down. It didn't take me long to finish reading it with the little free time I had I managed to finish it pretty fast and loved the story line and I just knew I would love Centaur Legacy even ...more

Freakin' cliffhangers!! Oh Drake how I love you and your hotness!! "I kept my eyes closed but could hear the smile in his voice when he leaned in close to my ear, feeling the warmth of his breath as much as hearing his words: I promise to protect you. I promise to put your needs before mine. I promise I'll never let you go to bed angry, and you'll never wake up alone. I promise to love you the rest of my life, and when this life is over, I'll spend my eternity in the pasture with you." Why can't ...more

I love the touched Series. Blood Debt was one of my favorite books of 2012. Centaur Legacy picks up right where Blood Debt left off. Drake and Cami have escaped from Zandra's house and are off to find Hercules' arrow.

Cami really comes into her own in Centaur Legacy. She starts to explore the limits of her powers and she is really impressive. Maybe even a little scary when she is in action. I loved seeing her start to learn how to use her powers. Because she is from two really powerful bloodline

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Holy smokes, I think this book was better than the first one. I have read several of Nancy Straights books and I have enjoyed each one. This one was certainly no exception.

This book takes off right where the last book left off. Drake and Cami are flying to Ireland. There was so much going on in this book and the action kept the book moving forward and kept me engaged in the story.

I really love the dynamic of Drake and Cami's relatio

I had my doubts about this book. The first book was extremely fast paced. This one was too but, in the first book I found it weird how she believed everything everybody told her without doubting a single thing. In this book she was a bit more stronger as a person and she had more of her own mind. She was embracing herself and believing in herself and not what everybody else told her. She would have probably jumped and run because her "father" told her too.
Drake was pretty amazing in this book t

Nancy did a great job writing the sequel to Blood Debt. I had some of my questions answered and new questions arise. I liked the turn of events and the changes that she gave her characters. I didn't see a lot of things coming and had a couple of "pick my jaw up off the floor" moments. Last time my ending question was "what is the deal with Daniel?" Now... it's "what is the deal with Drake?!" Oh and on an ending note I would just like to ask Nancy... WHHHHHHYYYY?! Why must you end the book this w ...more

When one of your favorite authors publishes a book, you have to read it right away no matter what is going on. So, yeah, I slipped this book in between the mayhem that is my writing life right now. The first book left me waiting for more, I couldn't pass up a chance at the next book in the series. And what can I say, Nancy doesn't disappoint.

There is mystery and intrigue, action and adventure, and let us not forget romance because I'm a sucker for romance. This story has it all and it's a series

WOW! This book was everything and more! Right after I read Blood Debt I would sometimes think about what the second book would entail. I would say that my imagination never came close what I just read.

So this is book 2 of the Touched series, it picks up where the first book left off. Don't worry if you've forgotten some of the details of the previous novel, there are historical pieces strategically placed in the book to give you those "oh yeah, I remember that!" moments.

Yet again, I loved it!! This was more about Camille coming of age (so to speak) as a centaur. She finds her way in this different life of hers and takes control. The story is a mixture of adventure, action, romance, and myste

I could not put this book down!!! I really don't think my review will do it justice but I'll try. It is an amazing sequel to Blood Debt! I'm so glad Cami finally realized her gifts and is becoming such a strong girl and Centauride. She really grew a lot in this book. She's more sure of herself and of her love for Drake. Their relationship makes me swoon. You can just feel the love between them radiating off the page. Oh and I'm so very happy for Beau! I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but ...more

The 2nd book in the Touched series picks up where Blood Debt left off. In this book, Nancy delves deeper into the lives of Camille and Drake who are in search of an item that they hope can protect them from her grandmother.

This book is full of moments that will make you cry, laugh and even make your heart race. You meet a lot of new characters in this book and you get reacquainted with some of your favorites from the 1st. There is definitely no chance of you wanting to put the book down once you

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

You need to read the first book before reading this second book. There is too much that you would miss if you skipped it. This book was every bit as good as the first one, if not better. It kept me on my toes. There was always something happening to fully keep my attention. It's not often a book surprises me, but something pretty big takes place that I didn't see coming at all. At least not like THAT.
