Product Description

Stay alive, stay astride, out of the bloody water. To race these savage water horses is blood and joy, sand and suicide. Are you ready to ride…? Every November, the Scorpio Races are run beneath the chalk cliffs of Skarmouth. Thousands gather to watch, as the sea washes blood from the sand. No steeds are more beautiful, fearless or deadly than the capaill uisce – the wild water horses. Yet every year, the foolhardy risk their lives to ride. Some are chasing the winnings. Some, like Sean, are chasing danger. And others, like Puck, are forced to ride… Yup: it’s a boy meets girl story – on horseback. But only one can be first to the finish line. And that’s if they actually survive…

    Complicated but intriguing

    A complicated, yet intriguing book by Maggie Stiefvater, the author of Shiver. If you enjoyed the captivating storyline of Shiver, you’ll love the originality of The Scorpio Races.
