[Meme] Waiting On Wednesday: Daughter of the Centaurs

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Daughter of the Centaurs
Author: Kate Klimo
Publisher: RandomHouse Canada, BFYR
Publication Date: January 24, 2012

Synopsis:
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.

Kate Klimo has masterfully created a new world, which at first seems to be an ancient one or perhaps another world altogether, but is in fact set on earth sometime far in the future.

Following on my obvious love of red and black we have this intriguing cover for Daughter of the Centaurs, book one in a new series by Kate Klimo. I have a deep love of horses, and this whole idea just makes me giddy. I can't wait to check this one out!

What book are you waiting for right now?
