Hello Darren,

I am currently re-reading the Saga of Darren Shan, and I was wondering if “The Lake of Souls” was inspired by The River Styx?

The River Styx was a river described in Greek Mythology as the bridge between earth and the underworld. It’s said to harbor the tormented souls of its ruler Hades.

No—but a scene in The Thin Executioner was.
