    1. Em's Review: Ellen Jensen Abbott’s Watersmeet tells the story of Abisina, an outcast from Vranille whose call to adventure comes when a new leader comes to power. With her dark hair and skin, and her lack of a father, Abisina is an outcast in Vranille and has been treated horribly all of her life. Her mother’s role as the village healer is the only thing that has offered them protection. One day, Abisina’s mother tells her of her estranged father, and promises that soon they will leave for [...]

    2. Love it! dwarves, centaurs, faeries, o my. Like a mild Game of thrones, where all races need to come together to defect one common enemy, cant wait to see what happens in the last one!

    3. I received this book free of charge through First Reads giveaways, this review may contain spoilers. This review is also posted to .This story's action begins swiftly and doesn't slow down until the very end. I found myself captivated immediately, wanting to finish it in one sitting if life didn't get call for my attention. This is the type of book I enjoy reading. Wonderful world building and interesting characters. The Centaur's Daughter is a sequel to Watersmeet. I had not had the chance to [...]

    4. When word reaches Watersmeet of Vran fallilng to the hands of an evil ruler, Abisina feels bad for her mother’s people and the refugees that head to Watersmeet. Still grieving her father’s death and feeling inadequate to feel his shoes, she still has not taken up her father’s old role of Keeper. Met with opposition from the current keeper, Glynholly , Abisinia feels she must find a way to help her people before Glynholly closes off her mother’s people from escaping their torment. Hoping [...]

    5. In this sequel to Watersmeet, Abisina must fight to unite the North and the South in the aftermath of the war against Charach. Watersmeet's supplies are exhausted due to refugees flooding in from the South and the surviving villages in the South are in the same situation. It's up to Abisina to help them all.I was skeptical at first, because I thought Watersmeet was a decent stand-alone book. However, I actually liked The Centaur's Daughter better. This book deals more with the depth of the chara [...]

    6. I received a copy of this book for free through ' giveaway process. I first read Watersmeet (book one in the series) with my 11-yr old daughter and then we moved on to The Centaur's Daughter. Although written for the young adult age group, as a 35-yr old I found the story interesting and captivating. It was well written and full of important lessons to learn about acceptance and learning to work together. My daughter and I look forward to reading the third installment "The Keeper" as soon as we [...]

    7. A solid YA fantasy, I liked this read better than Watersmeet, the first book in the series. Could have used more closure, but at least the cliffhanger is not as painful as it could have been. I am very interested to see where the story goes next, and wonder how Abisina will rally the diverse peoples of her world to protect themselves from the dangers they are suddenly facing.Full review soon at mangamaniaccafe

    8. I don't like how both books ended with a huge death. Not every great book has to have a great character die!! Was it really necessary? I loved both characters and I don't think it was in the benefit of the book to have this specific character die at the end of the book. :( Character development for Abisina is great though

    9. One of our 2012 YA nominees. I am not the biggest fantasy fan but loved her first novel Watersmeet. This book picks up the story. While it feels a bit like a middle novel in a trilogy, I found the storyline compelling. The debates about immigrants and prejudices seem contemporary. Abbot has a nice writing style that also for a story and characters to unfold while she creates her fantasy world.

    10. Even better than the first. Now Abisina gets to help others face their fears and prejudices, while improving herself. Once again lacking in descriptive detail of foraging and fighting, plenty of details about emotions.

    11. The Centaur's Daughter by Ellen Jensen Abbott is a great follow up to Watersmeet. The battles and adventures of the centaurs, fawns, and other folks kept me riveting until the final page. I look forward to the third novel in this series.

    12. Received copy for free for a review.Action started almost at the main beginning and continuously through out the book. I have not read the first book and as such at times I had no idea what they were talking about. ie, hole in the mountain, why are they considered demons?

    13. Not as good as Watersmeet. Slow moving story for almost the whole book, and then BAM, everything is jammed into the last four chapters. It was hard to keep track of it all. I hope this is just the middle book in a trilogy, for much is still unknown.

    14. This was a easy good read. Very appropriate for older kids. It won't make you blush. I didn't realize it was a second in the series, but was still enjoyable anyway.

    15. I loved this as much as Watersmeet. Characters journey and acceptance of self and others are important themes told through a series of exciting events.

    16. Its ok a lil disappointing at how much material there was to read for how little the story progressed though

    17. I enjoyed this more than Watersmeet. It was faster paced and I sympathized more with the characters reactions.Amber S.LibrarianMahon Branch
