Review of Nancy Straight's Blood Debt!

I just finished reading Blood Debt by Nancy Straight and was intrigued by this fresh twist on Greek mythology, especially in relation to the mythical beings, Centaurs.  I absolutely loved it, rushing through my day just so that I could snuggle in and read!  I have a read a lot of books that have featured mythological creatures, but this was different from anything I had read.

Now I know what you are thinking, why would I read a book about a bunch of half-human and half-horse beings, and why would it be interesting at all?  Well remember what I said, this is a fresh twist.  These centaurs are different from anything that I have ever heard before.  The females are powerful with gifts like telepathy just to name one, while the males are incredibly strong and fast.  

But wait it gets better!

We meet Camille, a young woman who has recently lost the only family she has ever known, her mother.  Upon her mother’s death she learns who her father is and where he is located.  She must decide whether to contact him or not and finally gives in only to be invited to come and meet him.  She travels to South Carolina and things are not what they seem.  Over time she comes to find out what she is and who she is related to. During the course of her adventures she comes to make some new friends and a few enemies as well.  She also finds the truth about what happened to her mother and why she never knew about her heritage.   

Did I mention the love story aspect?  Whoops!  She meets the handsome, gentle Drake Nash and is swept away though she tries to resist for very good reasons.  Camille must make decisions before she fully understands the new world that she has been thrust into.  While she does come to find love and family she never knew existed, she must also face new and frightening circumstances that have her question what is right and wrong, not to mention real or imagined.  Come along on this splendid ride of ups and downs as this headstrong Cali girl makes her way through the dangerous world of new family, new expectations, and ancient history.  Which way will she go, well, you will just have to pick up a copy of Blood Debt and find out! 

My wish is that you enjoy every second of the journey as I did.  I am so anxious to finish this review and dive back into the book just to make sure that I didn’t miss anything.  In this reviewer’s humble opinion, Nancy Straight has a hit on her hands, and I can’t wait to read the next book! 

Happy Reading!
