First thing I want to get out of the way is...Centaurs!!! Yes, this series is about centaurs. I promise you it is not the normal centaur. These are centaurs that you will fall in love with!!! Nancy creates a history and a world for this mythical creature that is all their own and it is absolutely wonderful! The guys are hot and the women are in charge. I mean come on...what more could you want?!
With that out of the way let's talk about Centaur Legacy, Book 2, of the Touched Series. Book 2 picks up right where Book 1 ended so this is definitely a series you need to read in order. Cami is stronger and more determined than ever to have her happily ever after with Drake and keep her friends and family safe from her evil grandmother, Zandra. Zandra is as nasty as ever and is just as determined to have her way in...well...in everything, really.
In my opinion, the underlying theme of Book 2 is sacrifice. We learn of the sacrifices Cami's mother made to keep her children safe and both Cami and Drake come to terms with what they are willing to do and sacrifice in order to keep each other alive. There are also several other characters that change and make sacrifices in book 2. Here is one of my favorite quotes on the subject from Drake:
There is nothing I wouldn't do for her, no sacrifice I wouldn't make, and no risk that would ever be to great. She was mine.- Drake
I highly recommend this book to any fan of YA paranormal fiction. If you haven't read this series yet you can download Book 1, Blood Debt for FREE.
The characters are growing with each book. And the story is getting deeper. This is one of the things I actually like most in a series. One I hope which will continue in the next two books.
Even as new characters are brought into the story line they are not flat their is life breathed into them. You can feel their personalities as you continue your journey through the book....
Now onto the next...
The story begins right where the first book ends, with our characters on a plane to Ireland. Cami and Drake are on a mission to locate he great Uncle Zethus and the arrow of Zeus. If they are to have a future together, the must find a way to defeat Cami's Grandmother Zandra. Once they arrive in Ireland, they wander the farmlands. About a week after they arrive, Uncle Zethus finds them and gives them news that the arrow is not longer in his possession. If they are to find it, they must go to North Dakota.
Meanwhile, Cami's brother Beau has made a life altering decision to leave the Centaur community and try living among humans. He refuses for allow his parents to pay a bribe to arrange for a loveless marriage to a Centauride. So, he is off to San Diego, California to visit Cami's best friend, Daniel. However, while he is there, he and Daniel, rescue a young Centauride name, Lacey from a burning car accident. Lacey is a seer and alerts Beau that he must go to North Dakota where Cami needs him.
Before Beau and Daniel can make it to North Dakota, Cami is kidnapped and Drake is left unconscious and badly injured. Daniel is furious. However, he and Beau rally the family to assist in locating Cami. Before you ask, "No, I will not tell you who kidnapped her." We get a chance to finally meet Cami's brother, Cameron and he is not what I expected. Also, the character of Lacey adds a nice new element to the story.
"Centaur Legacy" manages to interweave a whole new world and rich Centaurian culture. It is complex and full of supernatural elements. I truly enjoyed the changes Drake willingly makes for the love of Cami. Additionally, the storyline is full of action, betrayals, mystique and intrigue. Once I sat down to read it, I could not put it down. I literally read it in one sitting. I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation of what would happen next. Now, here I sit with the knowledge that I will have to wait a year for the third book. This is especially difficult since this book ended with a cliffhanger. Ms. Straight, you are simply devilish!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you are look for a series that will touch your heart and make your heart pound with excitement, the "Touched" series is the one for you. I loaned the first book to a friend of mine and she does not even like supernatural books and she immediately fell in love it! Run, do not walk and pick up this series. You will be glad you did!
