Maggie Stiefvater, the best-selling author of the Shiver triology – a soon-to-be classic tale of werewolvian love – has just released a new novel about carnivorous, water-dwelling horses. Intrigued? You should be. The Scorpio Races has already earned rave reviews from the Los Angeles Times, and Publishers Weekly.
Set in the early 20th century, and built around a harrowing anecdote from Celtic mythology, The Scorpio Races centers around a bloody annual event that always manages to attract enough leering tourists to keep the tiny island town of Thisby afloat. This year, a young woman will be entering the races – the first female contestant in history. Will she make it to the end alive? You can get a sneak peek of the action by watching this buzzworthy book trailer, animated with artful illustrations from the authoress herself.
