And here’s more about The Scorpio Races:
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.
* The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is featured in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, and Twilight Examiner has a slideshow of all the images from the magazine. Lots of new pictures from the movie!
