What the community says about The Scorpio Races
- "Maggie Stiefvater mixes up a classic literary potion again in her "The Scorpio Races," namely, those great standby human themes of love and death. Sean Kendrick and Puck Connolly are competitors, admirers of the water horses they must literally ride to stay alive, and finally paramours. Their struggle to maintain life and find love in a fantastic beachfront setting is riveting in its depiction of the untainted dedication only found in the young. Stiefvater has concocted a winning brew!"
- "It is a story based on the water horses of Celtic folklore of which I am not particularly a fan of either to be honest. However, since these horses are monstrous beasts and the story is based around people trying to race them you can see that there might be a little more intrigue to it than at first glance. There's little bit of romance and mystery but in the end none it is really enough for me to get over my internal dislike of horses so this one gets a pass from me."
