The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

The Scorpio Races

For fans of the Shiver triology here is another unforgettable reading experience that blends fantasy, magic and romance for a high adventure race to the finish! A must read for fans of Stiefvater and anyone that’s looking to experience a magical adventure.

Stiefvater has a way of bringing it to life for the reader, whether it’s the cold icy woods of Mercy Falls, or the cliff-side ocean breeze of Skarmouth. She creates such vivid back-drop that you can actually imagine along with the characters having ocean mist spray your face and the sea water confuse your senses. Arlene Good Reads

It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.
