For the Love of Mythology Blog Hop

For the Love of Mythology Blog Hop Banner

I’ve loved myth-based stories ever since I started losing myself in the library in elementary school. All those fantastic creatures and heroic deeds swept me away from boring homework. (Of course Zeus’ legendary philandering was toned down quite a bit!)

But if had to pick my favorite myth-based story now, well, it would depend on what was meant by favorite.

Atlantis Rising by Alyssa DayAlyssa Day’s Warriors of Poseidon series contained both the Greek god of the Sea and the legend of Atlantis, along with a whole bunch of nasty (and one nice) vampire and some shapeshifters. Awesome series with action, adventure, hot romance and saving the world. Start with Atlantis Rising if you’ve missed this. Even better, she’s finished so you get to find out how it ends.

American Gods by Neil GaimanOn a completely other track, if you want to learn about every mythology ever, sink your teeth, and a very long weekend, into Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. It felt like he made use of every possible myth and legend, and wove them into a fantastic reinterpretation of the great American road novel. If you’ve never read it, you won’t see the end coming, and then you’ll wonder why you didn’t. But I still laugh at the idea of the Egyptian gods keeping a funeral parlor in Cairo, Illinois with a cat named, of course, Bastet. And yes, it is Her.

  13. I love mythology! My favorite myth is the Trojan War – epic romance and action at the same time πŸ™‚

  14. I like most stories with Athena or Dionysus — she’s a woman of action, he’s a loveable guy who means no harm — he just has groupies with serious issues.

  15. My favorite myth is about Thesseus and Ariadne.
