message 1: by Lily (new)

Lily I think that the Scorpio Races is more of the mythology part of this list. It deals with the myth of water horses which comes up in a lot of different cultures. I would recommend it in a heartbeat.


message 2: by Abi (new)

Abi Walton which is the one that is the retelling of Judas?


message 3: by Djeemetry (new)

Djeemetry Phebe Hello I am new here does anybody else here love science fiction, fantasy, biographies , thrillers or learning books. It would make me really happy to talk to someone here.


message 4: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra Why are the Harry Potters here? They're not really retellings of anything, except a bit of christianity in the last book.
