Listen to Maggie Stiefvater describe THE SCORPIO RACES here (Scorpio Races Clip) 


In THE SCORPIO RACES, two teenagers are swept up in a daring, dangerous race across a cliff-- fighting for a better life and ultimately, their family’s survival.   The mythical blood thirsty water horses in the novel are loosely based on a legend of the Irish Water horses, the eich uise: sea mad water horses who eat their riders alive if they fall into the sea. Read more about the mythology behind the story here.
