The Scorpio Races Review

The Scorpio Races
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
pages: 404
publication date:October 18 2011

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


There are so many thoughts whirling around my head right now. This book was so different from anything I have ever read. I don’t think I ever even read the summary of this book before I read it; I just automatically had to read it because it was written my Maggie Stiefvater.

I had never heard of the capall uisice story before, I mean who would have known that there was a story about dangerous fairy horses that came out of the water. Horses that eat flesh and yearn for the salt water, dangerous living creatures that can kill you at any possible moment.

While reading this I became afraid of these creatures, I felt like part of the story, like I was right there watching the Scorpio Races, watching the people get trampled on and killed by these horses. Maggie really had a vision for this story, you can tell just by reading the details that she put into this book. And being able to throw in some romance in the book was icing on the cake.

Every time she described one of the horse’s cry I would shudder because it was almost like I could hear them myself.

I loved how she switched the POV from Sean to Puck, there were both such amazing main characters that you couldn’t help but feel drawn into their lives. All the characters really pulled the book together, and you could either love or hate the characters. 

It did take me a little while to read, the beginning was a little slow and boring but it was work it. In the end I couldn’t stop reading it. I can’t say I was that shocked with the ending. There are some books where you get to the end of the book and you read the last word and you’re disappointed. But the ending for “The Scorpio Races” was perfect. A perfect ending to a perfect book.

4/5 stars
