The Scorpio Races

by Maggie Stiefvater

 

 

Nineteen-year-old returning champion Sean Kendrick competes against Kate (Puck) Connolly, the first girl ever to ride in the annual Scorpio Races with dangerous water horses.  Puck decides to ride her first love, her horse, Dove,  to win enough money to save her home.   Sean will ride Corr, a carnivorous and very dangerous water horse, who he loves enough to risk his life to win the money to buy him.  Even more love grows between Sean and Puck.  This book reads as fast as the race itself.
