    "Stunningly beautiful"

    I was very surprised by the beauty of the story and the narrative. This is exactly the kind of book I hope to stumble across. Compelling and original, this story swept me to an island of interesting characters. I loved Puck. She is brave and honest. This will become a classic and be shared with friends and family. Fabulous storytelling. Bravo!!!

    "Wonderful book!"

    What a story and what a life. Honestly this is one of my favorite books of all time and I read it every October. I work with horses all day everyday. And I've fallen in love with the way Maggie Stiefvater has created her mythical horses that come out of the November sea. They feel so real and they are so dangerously drawing that I get lost in the words she writes.

    "Excellent story!"

    Loved it - the backdrop of the island and all its people is painted vividly for the reader. The myth of the waterhorses retold in a way with more authenticity. Beautiful story...

    "Very Interesting - in a GOOD way!"

    I bought this book long ago and tried to get into it...I failed. However, I tried again and I could not stop listening, it was very well done. Ms. Stiefvater is an amazing writer and I was very sad when the story was done. Impressive.

    "Gorgeous story & writing"

    This novel is a perfect combination of realism and magic; while set in the world we know, the primary landscape is one of man alongside harsh island conditions and even harsher beasts from the sea. Stiefvater blends lyricism with myth and a story of survival. The voice actors did their parts in bringing this story to life. Together, the audio book of The Scorpio Races is an unparalleled narrative.

    Story
    "Simply Beautiful"

    Maggie Stiefvater, thank you for such a stunning work. This book defies its labels. Yes, it's fantasy, it's romance, it's young adult. It feels like so much more than that, though. It feels like a breath of fresh air. The characters aren't the typical predictable coming of age teens. The fantastic horses aren't lovable. The romance is natural, easy, and still passionate. On top of it all the writing is exquisite.

    Add to the story excellent voice acting by the cast and delightful original music and this is exactly what all audiobooks should strive towards. If you're considering whether or not to purchase this book, do yourself a favor and go for it.

    Story
    "Phenomenal Storytelling"

    This is, without a doubt, my favorite love story. The mythos of water horses, the island, and the people who love them both is so rich and intriguing that the reader is enveloped in a world so complex as to be real. I want to see the Scorpio Races someday and see the children of Puck and Sean tearing up the sand below the cliffs in the chilly November wind.
