With her trademark lyricism, Maggie Stiefvater turns to a new world, where a pair are swept up in a daring, dangerous race across a cliff-with more than just their lives at stake should they lose.

"A story that captured me"
The book was a little slow to get into but just helped you get to know the characters. As the story went on, the pace picked up and the story keeps you hooked! Loved the way it was written and the narrators did a great job. Definitely worth a listen.
"Fresh of breath air YA novel"
The Scorpio Races is an intriguing read that puts the phrase “battle of the fittest” to the test. Two people who enter the traditional deadly Scorpio Races for two separate individual reasons, come together to help each other out and try to improve their own chances of winning.
This story has all the elements you would expect to get from a Ms. Stiefvater novel, vibrant and colourful characters and the odd one or two that have a tortured soul. I love how the story is broken down between the two main characters, Puck and Sean. Both have a story to tell and both are very endearing.
I really enjoyed this book and there was definitely a nice build up to the final race. It was a refreshing change to read a novel that was totally different from other stories out there but still had the classic boy meets girl element.
"My Favorite Book"
I'm a big fan of this author's work but often this can be ruined by the person / people reading the book. Not the case for this author. This book is the perfect blend of fantasy and reality. If you love horses and fantasy this is the perfect novel for both.
