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.
This book is amazing. I really have nothing negative to say. From page one I was so interested in this book. I loved it right from the start.
The writing is incredible and mesmerizing. The characters are beautiful and complex. The plot is interesting and the concept is mind blowing.
There’s only a handful of books that I’ve read that have made me feel how I felt while reading The Scorpio Races. I laughed, I cried, I did everything. I never wanted to put this book down but I also didn’t want to finish it because I wanted to continue reading for the rest of my life. I wanted to stay up all night reading to find out what would happen next but I didn’t because I wanted something to look forward to when I woke up. I read this book in just a day and a half but the impact that this book has left on me will last forever.
Overall, I loved this book. It’s definitely one of my all time favorites and I’m so glad I have this book in my life. I completely, 100 percent loved this book and I think everyone should read it. I’ve told anyone who will listen to read The Scorpio Races because I loved it so much. I’ll be reading this book every November for the rest of my life.
