After earth had flowered and life crawled from the sea, humankind was born.
The children of fire rebelled against this new creation, declaring war on the children of the air and humankind. Forced to cohabit with the mortals, the other elementals withdrew--the fair folk to the hills and wild places of earth and the merfolk, selkie and finfolk, to the depths of the sea.
Yet the elementals cannot exist in complete isolation from their mortal neighbors. From such encounters, souls are redeemed and lost, wars are waged, great art is created, empires are raised.
Of such meetings, legends - and children - are born.
For centuries, the children of the sea have co-existed in uneasy peace with the children of fire and with mortal kind.
Now all that is about to change...
Set off the coast of Maine, the Children of the Sea series was inspired by the Celtic legends of the selkie, immortal creatures of the sea living apart from humankind but able to shape-shift into seductive human form.
