Also posted on STRANGEMORECOMThis is basically the paranormal version of Misty of Chincatigue with gasp romanceLike Hidalgo on the beach instead of the desert with gasp kissing Between two riders NOT between the horse and it s rider though Well sometimes between the horse and it s rider Just a littleWhen this book started it felt like a breath of fresh sea air not rife with the smell of YA cliche That was mainly because I thought this book was told from the alternating perspective of two boys Sean and Puck which would have been a nice change for Steifvater Maybe I was in the mood for a buddy story or a brother story instead of the usual stereotypical romance But it wasn t meant to be you see because Puck is a SHE and not a he Sorry my inner Dr Suess came out for a secondNot that this is a spoiler or anything as it it mentioned fairly uickly It was just something my mind was set against I wanted Puck to be a boy I m tired of the here s a girl who does this and here s a boy who does that hmmmm I wonder when and how they ll meet and gee wouldn t it be weird if they fell in love because oh boy we ve never seen THAT happen before The Rundown I understand now why the blurb is so impossibly vague This is a difficult book to sum upTwo individuals Sean and Puck are preparing separately for the annual Scorpio Races where the dangerous water horses of Thisby face off against each other with their riders and generally lots of bloodshed until their lives eventually collide into each other Sean is the typical Thisby teen boy who just so happens to compete every year in the races Puck is a young girl having some family issues in particular with her brother s desire to leave the family home and the island that they live on and she thinks that competing in the Races will force her brother to stick around But Puck decides to race her regular horse against the blood thirsty water horses which cause uite a stir and tons of problems And that s just the beginning The Writing and World Building If there was one word to describe this book it would definitely be atmospheric The descriptions were gorgeous but the location for the book is than a little mind boggling It seems to be a created fantasy island located in Ireland I think The term they use for the water horses is a Gaelic term but it takes place on a fictional island I guess The specifics are never really laid out about where or what or when this Thisby isMany reviewers raised concerns about the lack of world building in the Maggie s Wolves of Mercy Falls series That being said I feel like she almost went in the opposite direction with way too much world building including tiny details about minor characters and it honestly wasn t very interesting to me The characters all had their own uirks and backgrounds but we were told too much and too often about them More than was necessaryHowever the world that she built around The Scorpio Races was much better than the world of Mercy Falls The prose isn t uite as purple and the romance isn t nearly as cheddar I d say it s like a magenta colby jack It was just a very bland and tasteless magenta colby jack The Pacing Pacing was my biggest problem with The Scorpio Races It takes at least 100 pages or so before anything remotely interesting happens Usually by then I would have put a book down not knowing whether or not I would pick it back up but because this is an upcoming release I felt like I needed to keep going In addition because of the way the environments are described and the action builds slowly a certain intrigue simmers in your mind and drives you forward regardless of the slow start But I m not entirely sure that the pay off was worth the anticipationAround page 380 the seemingly fabled races begin Now that would have been a great place to start the book Because up until that point almost NOTHING had happened It was all setup I m sorry but I do not need three hundred and eighty pages of setup Even if it has pretty words and HORSESBecause by the time that part finally came around and I thought Now this could be interesting it was much too late I was looooong past mentally checked out and had become disinvested and disinterestedThis might come off rude but this is the best way I know how too explain what it seems like has happenedYou know when a little girl first discovers the way her skirt twirls when she spins It s cute right You re like Oh isn t that precious She s twirling But then it s two weeks later and she s STILL twirling like the world won t be able to turn itself if she stops you re like Okay we get it You can twirl But you can t say that because then you re just being an asshole for ruining a little girl s twirl timeWell Maggie Steifvater can twirl and whirl and swirl and canter and whinny It just seems like the author discovered for the first time Wow I can write pretty prose Let s throw some of that in thereDon t get me wrong It is pretty But holy well of words do we need SO much of itThe Scorpio Races don t actually happen until the last 20 or 30 pages of the book and even then the actual Races only last about 12 pages the rest is aftermath For a book that s 410 pages long that is not a good chunk of the content Only about 3 percent of it in fact Maybe it should have been titled The 380 pages leading up to the Scorpio racesI mean sure Hunger Games had some setup as well But it would have been an entirely different book had the Games only lasted 12 pages Who Should or Should Not Read It I wouldn t read this book again And I wouldn t recommend it for a lot of people But I think a lot of people will read it anywayHere s why1 It is written by Maggie Stiefvater2 It is a paranormal written by Maggie Stiefvater3 It is a paranormal written by Maggie Stiefvater about HORSES HORSES HORSES HORSES HORSES HORSES254 It is a standalone FinallyIf you hated Shiver then you ll probably hate this one as well If you loved Shiver then you might love this oneRight around the time that the Black Beauty movie with Chris O Donnell came out I went through horse phase like many young girls probably do But I got over it and I think I m still over it which might be why I didn t love this book I also went through a dog phase Old Yeller Rin Tin Tin Turner and Hooch except that I never grew out of it and never willI think Horse People will love this book Keep in mind that there is a big difference between liking horses and being a Horse Person I like horses They are pretty and I like to imagine them with horns or wings or gills but my thoughts don t revolve around them I am a Dog PersonI ve heard people say that horses are like really big dogs but I think that those people are just Horse People trying to convince you to be a Horse Person When really it s like comparing Chihuahuas to Labradors Some people say that small dogs and big dogs are the same They aren t Not even close Usually those who say that are Small Dog People trying to convince you to be a Small Dog Person This isn t to say that any of them are better or worse than the other they are just different I am a Big Dog person not a Horse Person not a Small Dog PersonIf this had been about magical sea faring German Shepherds I would have LOVED it probably Other Thoughts The one thing I really like about what Maggie did with this book though the same may not be said for Shiver is that she didn t follow the pack with The Scorpio Races After the vampire werewolf craze hit and SMeyer announced on her website that she was writing a mermaid book strangely we saw a surge in the number of mermaid based books on the market many of a uestionable uality due to the fact that they were most likely rushed onto the shelves Maggie didn t go with the surge but she didn t go against it either She went along side it by creating her own mythology similar to many ocean based tales It wouldn t be surprising if we see a rise in ocean based mythology books after The Scorpio RacesAlthough the pacing is slower and the story not uite as involving as Shiver this book still seems to be a step in a better direction albeit almost too far a step for Maggie The world building is much fully realized and detailed than that of Shiver and the storyline isn t purely romance based which leads me to think that maybe just maybe authors do pay attention to reviewers complaints Maybe she just decided to put time into her world building on her own or maybe hopefully we are having some minuscule effect on how the book world evolves And that makes me very VERY happy The Verdict The Wolves of Mercy Falls was just a little too soft for me and the Scorpio Races was just a little too hard so maybe by the time the next book comes around from Ms Stiefavter that one will be juuuuust right for this little goldilocksI m giving it two stars because it was written well just badly paced and plotted in my opinion The pretty words weren t enough to make up for the boredom And unfortunately I never connected to the characters or the romance between themThe thing that frustrates me the most about books is when feel like I didn t learn anything I don t really mind not being entertained if I take something away from it that I had never thought about before But I at least want one or the otherIf you aren t going to entertain me then teach me something If you aren t going to teach me something then by George Washington at least ENTERTAIN me I m very sorry to say that this book did neither But that isn t to say that you will feel the samePersonally I didn t love it I don t think I even liked it but it wasn t terribly written it wasn t too terribly involving eitherMeh That s my word for this book Or rather like MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAHYeah I just whinnied Whatcha gonna do about it huh Twinkle
