Cami must have known I needed my solitude, and she stayed wordlessly by my side-no words of encouragement or second thoughts about what lay before us. If we died, wed die together- our last act on this earth trying to save the Lost Herd and the family we had both come to love.
I am never good at reviews when it is the 3rd book (or more of the series). Especially when it is as good as the previous ones. I just always feel like a broken record...yes, love the characters, love the storyline, yada yada. But truly this was another fabulous addition to the series. I did love the characters and I did love the storyline. As the story moves along, Straight keeps it fresh by the things she is adding to the book. You don't feel as if you are reading the same story in a different book.
I do love the opening line in the summary "The Centaur world is rocked as news spreads of the Lost Herd, Camille's existence, and her Centaur protector." Um, yeah. Just a tad. LoL! What I would give to see the faces of those who have come in contact with Drake in all his hoof-y greatness!
There is still romance to be had and not just with Drake and Cami. Oh just you wait and see! There are new people added to this one and so new romances are bound to happen. Speaking of the new people, I really think that readers are going to like them. I definitely think they bring something great to the series.
Ok, enough of that. Before you know it I will be giving away the story. And we can't have that can we? No. We cannot. So of course I recommend this book (and the whole dang series). Straight is a fantastic story teller and I cannot wait to see what she has waiting for us in book 4, CENTAUR REDEMPTION.

Book 1 was brilliant, Book 2 was even better - it can't get any better than that, can it? YES is the answer! This series continues to improve as the story moves on. This, quite simply, is an amazing story that has been written with real feeling and is so completely real. Nancy Straight has written a story that you will find completely believable even as you sit, read and wish that you had some of the powers of a Centauride... or is that just me?!
The story continues along, following what was laid out in books 1 and 2. You are reintroduced to old characters and see some new ones too. Zandra is at her best, or is that worst as she sinks her claws into Cameron. Cami and Drake have some real issues to sort out. Will love be strong enough to pull them through or will circumstances get in their way? Gage and Bianca are back with a vengeance which I was pleased to see. Beau makes a decision that will see him leave the herd but fate has her own plans for him. Daniel is growing on me and I can only hope that I know what is in store for him. Honestly, so much happens in this book that you are left breathless. The finale to the book was just awesome and now I NEED book 4, Centaur Redemption!!! (due to be released shortly).
If you love reading paranormal romance books, like Greek mythology, have read ANY of Nancy Straight's other books, then give the Touched series a go, because I promise you that once you have read the first book, you'll be after the others. Highly recommended.

I'm a little nervous to be the first review on this book, but I can promise no one will be disappointed. The battle is getting closer, and at least there are a few happy moments that will leave the readers satisfied. Camille and her family are still preparing for the war that will inevitably take place with the Centaur Council. Camille is fighting for her family to be able to live in peace, but everything is being threatened.
That Zandra Chiron is relentless and a lot of new villains may be making a debut in the fourth book. I can just feel it.
You pick up where the last book left off, and it never misses a beat. By now, the characters should feel like family for the reader. You're going to be rooting for all of them, and you're going to be ready for this war when it finally happens. The last few paragraphs of the book will have your adrenaline pumping, I promise. Ms. Straight does not disappoint.
