The Scorpio Races By Maggie Stiefvater
The setting in my story is an island, with some fictional characters. The time isn't really mentioned, from what I picked up on it's more of modern day building layouts, slightly run down. The island is known for it's annual Scorpio Race. With the fictional characters, capall uisce. These creatures submerge from the water once a year, they are horse like animals, but not near as friendly. These animals eat bloody meat, and aren't afraid to fight, or kill for that matter. "These are not ordinary horses. Drape them with charms, hide them from the sea, but today on the beach. Do not turn your back." p.3
The characters switch within the story, the names of the two are Sean Kendrick and Kate Connolly. They call Kate, Puck. She is seventeen and has two brothers with the names Gabe and Finn. Bother of her parents were lost to a capall usices. The family is broken Gabe, the father figure, plans on leaving. Puck plans on winning the race in hopes to change his mind, only enters with her ordinary horse Dove. Sean has also lost his parents to the creatures, though he continues to ride the beasts. He isn't really detailed yet in the story, other than being know to ride well. For Puck "I pull some of my hair out of my ponytail, trying to look like someone other than the girl I grew up being. Someone people wouldn't laugh at when I arrive on the beach. It doesn't work." p.35 For Sean "A dark-haired boy made of all corners." p.62
I think she fears the capall uise, just because that's how her parents went, but there are a few times when she handles the animals and has a skill for it. I predict later in the book she will bond with one. I'm not sure how it will go in the race with her ordinary horse against all those other creatures of the sea. Also nobody takes her seriously because she is a girl. The story hasn't revealed enough about Sean for me to tell. "Padgett is beginning to look improbable; something about him is starting to look less like a man and more like meat. I hear, plaintivley from one of the men; "Kendrick" p.32
In my novel a person antagonist has not formed, but more of a mental one I think Puck fears loss, with what happened to her parents and all. Then her brother leaving I believe is what really pushed her into joining the races. She hopes to use the prize money to make him rethink leaving. Again not enough information provided to tell for Sean. "For a moment, I see the room like anyone else might see it. It looks like everything around Finn has crawled out of the kitchen sink and drain. It's a mess, and we're a mess, and no wonder Gabe wants to leave." P.38
