Spoiler about the wife for those who want to know...
Anult's centaur wife is very kind and beautiful but unable to provide Anult with offspring, which is why she is fine adding Fiedrah into their relationship. And Anult's last bride didn't survive birthing, which is why I am dying to know if Fiedrah did.
Fiedrah is a tribute bride, selected from her village to be given to the centaurs in return for the herd's protection of the village from marauding trolls and whatnot. The centaurs in Clea Kinderton's story are not the gentle vanilla 'horse people' that would appeal to Harry Potter and other 13 year old girls. They're a warrior race. They eat meat-including the trolls they kill(!) They take human women to propagate the species.
And there are female centaurs, too.
Clea Kinderton weaves all of this scene-setting into what is a brief tale, but you never lose sight of Fiedrah's situation or her feelings of dread, anticipation of her 'wedding' (which is basically the consummation bit--in front of EVERYBODY), and even growing desire for her centaur husband, Anult.
Who has a centaur wife, Lutha(!!) Complications much? Interesting twist!
Hopefully, Clea Kinderton will return to this world, and explore this dynamic in more detail. And tell us what happened next to this little trio, and the rest of the tribe.
The ending was a little abrupt - but overall, I liked this story.
