While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction.

The Scorpio Races

The Scorpio Races - Maggie Stiefvater, Fiona Hardingham, Steve West, Scholastic Audio

What to say about The Scorpio Races, which I read as my first Booklikes-opoly Free Friday Selection:

 

  • The story of The Scorpio Races is told from two intersecting perspectives, that of Puck Connolly and that of Sean Kendrick.
  • The audiobook is read by two narrators, a female narrator for the chapters from Puck’s perspective and a male narrator for the chapters from Sean’s perspective. I thought the use of two narrators worked well.
  • Maggie Stiefvater has a way with language that reads aloud wonderfully and speaks to me
  • These characters/this story didn’t grab me as much as The Raven Boys or Shiver Quartets
  • I recommend not knowing anything more than the cover blurb before reading The Scorpio Races, so I’m going to leave it here.
