Skyla Happy Go Lucky and Lost in Books What is The Scorpio Races a retelling of?


message 2: by Star (new)

Star 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 3: by Abi (new)

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