I recently got an ARC of Daughter of Centaurs by Kate Klimo from the Amazon Vine program. I chose it because I don't think I have ever read anything about centaurs and it sounded interesting. It is also being compared the The Blue Sword which is one of my favorite fantasy novels.

Here is the description:
Malora knows what she was born to be: a horse wrangler and a hunter, just like her father. But when her people are massacred by batlike monsters called Leatherwings, Malora will need her horse skills just to survive. The last living human, Malora roams the wilderness at the head of a band of magnificent horses, relying only on her own wits, strength, and courage. When she is captured by a group of centaurs and taken to their city, Malora must decide whether the comforts of her new home and family are worth the parts of herself she must sacrifice to keep them.

For as long as she can remember, Malora has dreamed of dancing with horses.
Friday 56:
West throws back his head and screams at the sky, "Flash flood! Head for higher ground!"
