The Scorpio Races By: Maggie Stiefvater

I liked the end of the book but the beginning dragged on. There are different things that I think should have been left out while other things should have been included, though this happens with every book. With this specific book there are different things that are described towards the end of the book that would have made so much more sense at the beginning of the book. I also enjoyed that Puck and Sean have a romance but it is very mild and is more of a mutual attraction instead of a mushy love. All in all the book wasn't bad.

The Scorpio Races

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.
