Teaser Tuesday (7): The Scorpio Races

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater:
This beautiful book has been sitting on my shelf for what seems like forever. I'm excited to finally be reading it. I'm already impressed by the amazing story and scenery Maggie describes. I'm looking forward to finishing it!

The Scorpio Races
The piece in front of me is covered with short, dark hair, matted with sand and blood.
It's a ruin, almost unrecognizable. I am in danger of throwing up.
(from page 54)

Goodreads Summary:
It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.
