MY REVIEW

 

Blood Debt is ,for me, an amazingly refreshing and original paranormal romance novel, heavy on the Greek mythology. I have not read a lot about Centaurs, but I am blown away by how much I ended up loving this story by the time I was done. It kept getting better and better and by the end, I was so involved with the characters, that I was screaming for more. 

 

The shifting point of view was confusing at first, but it didn’t take me long to adjust and the story flowed better, unfolding so rapidly in front of me that I forgot about it.

 

Camille had wondered who her father was, but never would have chose to lose her mom to find out. On her death bed, Camille’s mother did tell her who her father was and after some phone conversations and a background check (thank goodness for the internet, lol), she is flying to meet him. It struck me as odd, that anyone, especially a female, would go so quickly and alone on top of it. But, this is fiction and I am happy to overlook that and cut right to the chase.

Camille’s heritage traces back to the first Centaur touched by Zeus, but she is totally unaware of it. She does not know she is a Centaur, let alone know about their traditions and customs.

 

In a Centaur relationship, think the Stepford Wives in reverse. I love it. I couldn’t help but laugh. At first I thought it was creepy and funny, the woman is “queen” and the men give them no flak for it, but then I thought, someone has to be the boss. LOL The men worship the ground the women walk on and would do nothing to cross the traditional barriers, until….Cami

 

How far will you go for love? Cami is going to show us the way…and I am shocked by what’s happening on the page…..oops, sorry, it’s a secret. You will need to read her story for yourself. I NEVER saw anything like this coming and I am stunned by Nancy Straight’s ability to take the story to such a creative level. It just keeps getting better and better.

 

I guess I need to explain that a bit and you will see what I mean. Blood Debt started out as an easy 3 star novel. If it would have stayed that way, I would not have been disappointed. But, it didn’t take long and I knew I had to bump the rating. So, I thought 3 is out, it’s gotta be a 4, and that was a nice surprise. I would have been happy with that. But, it didn’t stop there. Well, I think you know where this is going.

 

I have a love/hate relationship with the characters. The torment and sacrifice they go through to follow the demands of their race, customs and traditions had me wondering how this could have a happy ending. At one point, my heart fell and I was devastated, but I did recover, in a very surprising fashion.

 

The more I read, the faster I went. A fantastic buildup to an ending that left me screaming for more, but, thankfully, I don’t have to wait for Centaur Legacy, Book II.

 

Laura, my sister, had a spare, signed, first edition paperback of Blood Debt by Nancy Straight and gave me the book. Thanks so very much Laura.

 

Now, I need the rest of the books. This is definitely one series I want to finish.

"Forse crescere significa anche questo. Accettare che quel monte che protegge la vallata ha anche un altro versante, nascosto. Che il terreno non è tutto uguale,ci sono zone più fertili, altre più aride.Alcune parti sono addirittura a rischio frana. Ci sono angolazioni e scorci che non avresti mai potuto scorgere dalla tua prospettiva iniziale.E' così che si diventa uomo o donna? Accettando che una montagna è l'insieme di quelle prospettive, sennò è solo un fondale teatrale?"

È difficile trovare una persona capace di rispettare questo silenzio. Rispettarlo. Ma anche riempirlo. Non lasciarlo alle ombre . Perché il silenzio è l'acqua in cui nuotano. Mi sa che con gli anni accumuliamo facce, angolazioni, caratteri. Con la vita diventiamo poligoni. Il dolore crea buchi nella trasmissione della memoria. Poi ognuno li riempie come può.

quote 2019-01-13 15:33
Verrà un tempo in cui tutti noi saremo morti. Tutti. Verrà un tempo in cui non ci saranno esseri umani rimasti a ricordare che qualcuno sia mai esistito o che la nostra specie abbia mai fatto qualcosa. Non ci sarà rimasto nessuno a ricordare Aristotele o Cleopatra, figuriamoci te. Tutto quello che abbiamo fatto, costruito, scritto, pensato o scoperto sarà dimenticato, e tutto questo non sarà servito a niente. Forse quel momento sta per arrivare o forse è lontano milioni di anni, ma anche se noi sopravvivessimo al collasso del nostro sistema solare non sopravviveremmo per sempre. È esistito un tempo prima che gli organismi prendessero coscienza, e ce ne sarà uno dopo. E se l'inevitabilità dell'oblio umano ti preoccupa, ti incoraggio a ignorarla. Sa il cielo se non è quello che fanno tutti.
