Mythological Mondays (10)

Mythological Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Bonnie at A Backwards Story to highlight all things myth related.


For my MM post this week I am featuring a brand new book by Rebecca Lynn. Descendants is the first book of the Descendants Saga. This isn't your traditional mythology based book; instead, mythologies such as Basque and Greek, and various urban legends can be found in Descendants. I'm not at all familiar with Basque mythology, and had it not been from the publisher's email I probably wouldn't have known such thing existed. Although, I am vaguely conscious of stories about being gaining eternal youth and power by drinking the blood of others. Maybe that's the Basque mythology mentioned? As for the Greek side, there is a mentioning of Aquarius-- I'm certain he pops up somewhere in the Greek myths. 


Descendants was unveiled at BEA this past year, and will go on sale September 1st. (Happy birthday to me!) I will be doing a complete review of the book later in the month, closer to publication date. If you want to learn more about The Descendants Saga or the author, Rebecca Lynn, check out the website by clicking here.  


Without further delay, here is the synopsis of the book, as provided by the publicist: 


The only thing that mattered to Sollara was escaping the Deep Kingdom and exploring the world she had only ever dared to dream about. But when her dreams clash with her reality, she awakes in the arms of a handsome stranger, somewhere in an unknown and magical land. Not knowing who her enemies or allies are, she turns to those she was raised to despise for help. 

All she had was her soul and she was determined to keep it.
