Review for Centaur's Prize: A Zodiac Shifters Paranormal Romace Sagittrius by Catherine Banks - 4 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
The centaur’s prized possession was lost and as the guard on duty that night, all blame is placed on Lysander. For punishment, they exiled him to the human’s world, away from his herd and the only life he had known. The only way he can get back to Olympus is to find the lost item. A feat made much more difficult when a gorgeous, tall, and leggy blonde trots into his life.
Mendra is the last of her kind, a Pegasus with the ability to shift into human form or equine form. Her mother told her wild tales about lands with centaurs, satyrs, Gods, and heroes, but she never believed them. Until she met a man like her, a man who could shift into equine form and tells her similar stories. He asks for her help finding a lost item, so he can return to Olympus and his herd. She wants to help him, but she’s afraid to lose the one person who makes her feel like she’s home.
Lysander convinces Mendra to help him, but as they search for the lost item, he isn’t so certain he wants to return home. Life with the humans is so much different than Olympus and his heart aches at the thought of leaving Mendra behind, alone in a world without a herd of her own. Will his arrow fly true, or will they lose more than they ever imagined?
MY REVIEW -
I enjoyed that this book deals with equine shifters, and the romance is cute. This is a short story, and I was interested till the end, so that's a plus. The story could've used a bit more depth, and everything was just way to easy. All the bad guys are rather pleasant, it was weird, lol. I would've liked for the book to have more of an ending as well, it wraps up, but I was surprised that that was it. I liked both main characters, Lysander and Mendra, they are sweet together. Everything felt rather tame in the book, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The story overall is entertaining, and I enjoyed the premise of searching for a missing magical item. I would've loved if there was more mystery and adventure surrounding the magical object, but I still enjoyed that aspect. Fun, quick, interesting read!
