Dangerous faeries. Otherwordly music. Unrequited love. The intoxicating sequel to Lament is now available from Scholastic!

In this mesmerizing sequel to Lament, music prodigy James Morgan and his best friend Deirdre join a private conservatory for musicians. James is still struggling with his feelings for Dee when he meets Nuala, a dangerous faerie muse who offers to help foster his creativity -in exchange for his life.

He turns down the offer, but working together they compose achingly beautiful music and unexpectedly fall into a mutual attraction. As James begins to realize his feelings for Dee and Nuala have changed, it becomes clear that both girls are being hunted by the Fey.

Plunged into a soul-scorching battle with the Faerie Queen, James soon discovers that he can only save one.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Scorpio Races"Stiefvater has created a thrilling backdrop ... a book with cross-appeal to lovers of fantasy, horse stories, romance, and action-adventure, this has a shot at being the next YA blockbuster."- Booklist, starred reviewPraise for Shiver Trilogy"The mythology surrounding the wolf pack is clever and so well written that is seems perfectly normal for the creatures to exist in today's world. A must-have that will give Bella and Edward a run for their money."- School Library Journal, starred review
