Grandma's Review of "Scorpio Races" by Maggie Stiefvater
I can't actually say that I didn't like this book, it just didn't get me at Hello. The author spent a lot of time in building the characters (which I liked) but failed to give me details. I would have liked to have known rather the time frame was in the future or past and where Thisby Island is located (off what mainland). I was disappointed that the actual Scorpio Race was a very small part of the book. From reading the preview I thought the race would be similar to the life and death struggle of the Hunger Games. Overall if you are a Maggie Stiefvater fan you should read the book, however, if I read this book first I may not have wanted to read her "Wolves of Mercy Falls Series" and then I would have missed out on three great books.
