I was a little nervous when I started reading this book. A good portion of the book is Drake and Cami on the run from her grandmother, whom they escaped from in the previous book. What made me nervous is the fact that I don't do long journey type books. I get bored quickly when the main character is on a mission the entire book. However, the fact that it broke between not only both Cami and Drake's POV but Cami's friend Daniel and her brother Beau really helped keep my interest. Not saying that the journey that Cami and Drake take isn't necessary to the story but I suppose I have ADD when my main character is walking/traveling for an extended length of time.
We follow Cami and Drake as they look for a magical arrow that will keep Cami safe from her grandmother and in order to find it they must find her grandmothers twin brother. So their journey starts there. We also follow Beau who has one year left until he is no longer eligible to marry a centauride thus not being able to carry on the family bloodline. You see, males have until the age of 30 to be chosen by a Centauride before they are cast away from Centaur Society. So before Beau can get the boot or become anyone's charity case, he decides to jump ship, gives Daniel a call and heads out to San Diego. What I was most excited about was the fact that we finally learn the story behind Daniel. In the last book I kept wondering why both Daniel's parents and Cami's parents were freaking out over their friendship... now I know why.
Nancy did a great job writing the sequel. 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 way?

**This is book two in the series. I’ll do my best not to put in spoilers.**
Drake and Camille are now on the run from the Centaur Council. Secrets are uncovered that threaten so many lives.
With the help of Camille’s family, they travel to Ireland to seek the mysterious pasture of Thessaly and an object that will protect them, then on to South Dakota and a twin brother Camille never knew she had.
My head was spinning as I read this second book. Not because I couldn’t keep it all straight, but because of how much was happening. This is exciting from the get go and really never slows down.
I learned more about how and where centaurs came to be and it was fascinating. Nancy Straight got very creative with her mythical centaurs and shocking events occurred that I didn’t see coming.
Old blood feuds arise, centaur is against centaur, and trust is hard to come by. Camille’s grandmother is up to her old tricks, her entire bloodline is now in danger, and something happens to Drake that forces him to make a difficult choice.
As the second book in this series, I was worried it wouldn’t give me what I wanted. But I didn’t leave it disappointed. I finished reading and turned me eyes to the third book, having to read more, needing new answers, and seeking more surprises.
I own the complete series and I'm so happy I can right to the next book.
