The Young Centaur
The Young Centaur is a highly researched novel that closely follows Classic Greek mythology. This is the first book in a series that tells the life story of Kheiron, an orphaned centaur who becomes a mentor to many of the early Greek heroes. He is a master in the arts of herbology, medicine, hunting, music, divination and fighting – skills one needed to survive 4000 years ago. This first book covers Kheiron’s conception and early life. At first, his mother believes that he is an abomination growing in her womb and does not want him, but his gentle nature changes something inside of her. When he is still young, Kheiron finds himself abandoned and alone. He wanders the hills of Mount Pelion and meets Apollo who teaches him the power of healing, the meaning of dreams and how to divine omens. They visit Artemis and her band of orphaned daughters who teach him hunting and the value of working together. Kheiron falls in love with Kallisto, the beautiful one, but the most powerful god of heaven and earth, Zeus, wants her for himself. Will Kheiron be able to save her from the consequences of breaking her solemn vow of chastity?
