Book Trailer: Maggie Stiefvater’s “Scorpio Races”
Here at the O’Deary Library, we get just as excited as you do about books that are coming soon. Every week, we’ll bring you trailers for books – sometimes new ones, sometimes old ones, and sometimes even fan-made ones!
Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling author behind such novels as The Raven Boys and The Shiver Trilogy, is back! This time, she’s entering a whole new world: the one where racing is a way of life, where some race to live and others race to survive. Welcome to the Scorpio Races!
The best part about this trailer? The amazing animation and design style! Even if you’ve never heard of Stiefvater before, this trailer is sure to peak your interest. It’s really that beautiful.
Check out the trailer above and the full synopsis below.
“Some race to win. Others race to survive.
It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line.
Some riders live.
At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.
Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn”t given her much of a choice. So she enters the competition – the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.
As she did in her bestselling Shiver trilogy, author Maggie Stiefvater takes us to the breaking point, where both love and life meet their greatest obstacles, and only the strong of heart can survive. The Scorpio Races is an unforgettable reading experience.”
