A message from Stephannie about the Series:
I’ve always been fascinated by Greek, Roman, and the even older Etruscan mythologies since I was first introduced to them as a child. Everything I learned, from the books I read to the exhibits I visited, revealed the many layers to the myths. I loved the idea that there was more to this world than can been seen by the naked eye and more than can be imagined in our limited philosophies.
When I started writing the Children of Khaos Series knowing I was going to reinvent the mythologies I love rather than retell them. I wanted to bring to life a different feature of the story and look deeper to find the source of those stories. For me, they became more than a backdrop to people long gone, they became window into the understanding a souls of the culture. I took several liberties with the creation of the series to show the mythologies in a different light. I didn’t want it to be this predictable story that we all learned in school. I wanted it to be familiar but different. So I twisted mythology to fit the world I created.
