The list author says: "These books are based on Mythology either directly, or indirectly. Some of them are based on gods, their descendants, or images found in mythology. Some of them do not make mention of anything from mythology but share the same theme. A good example would be The Hunger Games. It could be argued that the story is based loosely on Theseus and the Minotaur. They both involve children being taken away to a foreign land to be sacrificed as a form of atonement."
"The first in a series of novels about modern day children of gods. Gods from Greek, Norse, Japanese, Hindu, Egyptian and other pantheons all fill the pages. Some familiar monsters as well as new ones ad to the suspense."
