Ascension (Water Series #1)

by Kara Dalkey

The sea is the birthplace of legends. Nia, a young mermyd of the Bluefin clan, has had one wish all her life -- to be an Avatar in her beloved home of Atlantis. The ten Avatars rule the beautiful and peaceful undersea city alongside the ancient Farworlders, whose magic keeps their world alive. To be an Avatar is an honor and a great responsibility, and Nia dreams of taking her place among the noble ten. Now, at sixteen, Nia has a chance to see her dream come true. Atlantis is choosing its next Avatar, and Nia knows she is supremely qualified. But there is something Nia doesn't know -- if she gets her heart's desire, it could mean the end of her treasured world of Atlantis forever.

Genpei

by Kara Dalkey

From the Author's Note: Genpei is a fantasy treatment of the great war, or series of wars, really, that ended the Heian period in Japanese history. The events referred to in the story took place roughly between 1153 and 1185 C.E. However, Genpei should in no way be taken as an accurate depiction of these events, not merely because of the fantasy elements. Although I tried to tie the narrative as closely to the incidents surrounding the fall of Heian Kyō as I could, I found this to be an impossible task. Many of the historical sources I drew from were written years, even centuries, after the events took place and they all contradicted each other as to what happened when, and who was present where. I've tried to make as coherent a narrative as I could, given the sources.
