Haunting tale of love and danger,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Scorpio Races (Paperback)
In Stiefvater's typical lyrical style, the story takes places in an alternate island off the British coast. The island makes for quite a haunting backdrop to a bizzare telling of a lovestory between two young people of the island, Sean and Puck, both survivors, both quite introverted (same vibe as Shiver, for that matter). The main theme around which the plot twists is horses, and particularly Sea Horses (an Irish/celtic myth that Stiefvater adapted for her book), which are vicious, hybrid creatures that only few can tame.
I liked the mist-covered, lyrical, gothic atmosphere and adored the developmend of Sean and Puck's relationship. What a man, Sean (sigh) another keeper in my hot-guy-lit-heroes list!
