Book Review: The Scorpio Races, By Maggie Stiefvater

The Scorpio Races
By: Maggie Stiefvater
The Scorpio Races

Puck Connolly may have decided to enter the dangerous Scorpio races as a scheme to keep her family together, but the repercussions of her choice will change herself, her family, and community in ways she could never imagine.

Exciting and unpredictable, The Scorpio Races is full of rugged danger, reckless ambition, and refreshingly understated romance. Readers who have read Shiver or The Raven Boys (Also by Maggie Stiefvater) will find that this story is completely unique in tone and setting. The Scorpio Races is a stand alone novel with no series, sequel, prequel, etc and ends in a way that is both satisfying and true to the characters.

It includes:
  • References to the size of a woman's chest
  • Kissing
  • References to groping, and theoretically having someone share your bed in a non-plutonic manner
  • Urinating in someone's shoes
  • Injuries
  • Death
  • Killing
It also contains some religious references to church, confessions and penance as well as some mythical elements that are critical to the story's setting.
