Description

A stunning new novel from the bestselling author of SHIVER, LINGER AND FOREVER. Stay alive, stay astride, stay out of the water...Every November, the Scorpio Races are run beneath the chalk cliffs of Skarmouth. Thousands gather to watch the horses and the sea that washes the blood from the sand. The mounts are capaill uisce: savage water horses. There are no horses more beautiful, more fearless, more deadly. To race them can be suicide but the danger is irresistible. Sean Kendrick knows the dangers of the capaill uisce. With one foot in the ocean and one on land, he is the only man on the island capable of taming the beasts. He races to prove something both to himself and to the horses. Puck Connolly enters the races to save her family. But the horse she rides is an ordinary little mare, just as Puck is an ordinary girl. When Sean sees Puck on the beach he doesn't think she belongs. He doesn't realize his fate will become entwined in hers. They both enter the Races hoping to change their lives. But first they'll have to survive.

About Maggie Stiefvater

Maggie Stiefvater, geb. im November 1981 in Virginia, verlebte eine nach eigenen Worten sehr chaotische aber sehr kreative und musisch geprägte Kindheit und Jugend. Nach dem College versuchte sie u.a. als Kellnerin, Zeichenlehrerin beruflich Fuß zu fassen. Doch sehr bald schon meldeten sich ihre kreativen Talente und verlangten, ausgelebt zu werden zunächst als Musikerin und Songwriterin, dann zunehmend als bildende Künstlerin. Für ihre künstlerischen Arbeiten wurde sie inzwischen mit einigen wichtigen Preisen ausgezeichnet. Seit 2007 hat sich Stiefvater aufs Schreiben konzentriert und zählt inzwischen zu den erfolgreichsten Autorinnen der Romantasy.
