A debut historical fantasy that recasts Jane Austen's beloved Pride & Prejudice in an imaginative world of wyverns, dragons, and the warriors who fight alongside them against the monsters that threaten the kingdom: gryphons, direwolves, lamias, banshees, and lindworms.

I was looking forward to this and I thought it was pretty good. However I found that the middle dragged a bit and the narration seemed a bit off at times.

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.

This was a fantastic and thrilling story.I loved the idea of the water horses and like her other work The Scorpio Races is full of flawless prose and engaging characters.
I found that the narration was sometimes a little stilted and that is honestly my only critique of this book.

Forget George and the dragon. Forget Sir Lancelot and tales of knightly exploits. This is dirty, bloody work. This is violent, visceral action. This is a mercenary knight as you've never seen one before. Twenty-eight florins a month is a huge price to pay for a man to stand between you and the Wild. Twenty-eight florins a month is nowhere near enough when a wyvern's jaws snap shut on your helmet in the hot stink of battle, and the beast starts to rip the head from your shoulders.

Such a brilliant and engaging story. It took a little while to get used to the format but once I did I was thoroughly engaged. The narrator was brilliant.
