Book I: Mate For A Centaur

Several generations have passed since the Oracle of Apollo prophesied that her sons would battle over a woman. The kentauroi (centaurs) have been driven from their homeland in Thessaly and scattered across Hellas.

Nais, Princess of Boiotia, never expected anything less than an arranged marriage. there were plenty of suitors to choose from. Her father, King Nycteus- a pious man as well as loving father, sought the wisdom of the gods in the matter of her daughter’s betrothal. The Delphic Oracle instructed the king to award his daughter’s hand to the winner of the Olympic Games. It seemed as if the gods themselves would claim the princess as rumors spread that Nais would wed the son of Zeus, for who could defeat Heracles in competition at his father’s own festival? Nais’ future appeared favorable certain until a herd of kentauroi (centaurs) arrived in Olympia to compete for the princess.
