From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Shiver and Linger comes a brand new, heartstopping novel.Some race to win. Others race to survive. 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 choice. So she enters the competition - the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen. As she did in her bestselling Shiver trilogy, author Maggie Stiefvater takes us to the breaking point, where both love and life meet their greatest obstacles, and only the strong of heart can survive. The Scorpio Races is an unforgettable reading experience.

A mess of horses and men and blood."Too bad that's not actually what the book is about, at least not 95% of it.Before reading this book I didn't understand why those I follow gave this book low ratings when it has such a good premise. H...
I just finished this. I like the plot alright. I really like Sean and George and Puck (in that order) and the relationship between Sean and Puck, and Sean and George (in that order). Sometimes i liked the writing, but more often i thought it was confusing. I don't think i like how it ended. It didn'...
What a breath taking story. This lyrical work of art (Yes i said it!!) touched my soul, like no other book has before. The Scorpio Races is heartbreaking, bittersweet, cruel and yet, tender and beautiful.The waterhorses were magical in there ferocity. I grew up on horses so it wasn't hard for me to ...
