Maggie Stiefvater exploded onto the scene with Lament, and furthered her name with The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. Next up is The Scorpio Races, out today. I'm fairly interested in giving it a go, since I'm pretty worn out on faeries and werewolves. Here's a very interesting trailer, that tells you almost nothing about the book, but is still cool because of the stop motion art:
Some race to win. Others race to survive.
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.
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 choice. So she enters the competition - the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.
As she did in her bestselling Shiver trilogy, author Maggie Stiefvater takes us to the breaking point, where both love and life meet their greatest obstacles, and only the strong of heart can survive. The Scorpio Races is an unforgettable reading experience.
Nota bene: Her stop motion trailer for Linger is pretty awesome, too. As are the two different versions of the trailer for Forever.
