Guest Review: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Monday, April 6, 2015
Why I chose this book:
I have been dying to read anything by Maggie Stiefvater ever since I finished Blue Lily, Lily Blue. When I'm in the mood for some really magical prose, I know I can turn to Maggie, and she won't let me down. I'm so glad she has proved my theory correct once again with The Scorpio Races! I am also very grateful that Amanda let me review and keep her copy of it because it was incredible!

Publisher: Scholastic Press
Release Date: October 18, 2011
Format: Paperback
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
B&N  ||  Amazon  ||  Book Depository



Synopsis:
It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Race. 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 Kednrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of 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.
