“He jerks his head toward me so fast that I have an iron rod out of my pocket before he’s finished his turn. But he wasn’t attacking, merely moving to study me with his good eye.

I trust Corr more than any of them.

I should not trust him at all.”

Maggie Stiefvater’s The Scorpio Races is one of my favorite books. It’s so original with its beastly water horses who tempt the inhabitants of Thisby Island to try and tame them. Every year there is a race and people die, yet year after year the young and desperate take their chance on the beach. I really should reread this book so I can review it, that and just talking about it gets me in a bookish frenzy.
