Gaia’s Majesty Review (Fantasy / Speculative Fiction)

Gaia's Majesty

About Gaia’s Majesty: Discovery
Our earth mother, Gaia, was intrigued by clever creatures developing on her Earth. She believed they held promise but also danger for themselves and her planet.

Wisely Gaia reserved a gifted population of women dedicated to earth’s stewardship to safeguard the future of humankind. They remained in cities in the sea called Tethys. They would be a genetic pool if she needed to restart the species. The ones in the sea were called Progenitors and had lower fishlike bodies when in the sea but could morph to totally human form on land. Some members, called Primals, lived on the land and among them were a defense force, predominantly women, called the Andromeda. From these people were born the myths of mermaids and amazons. Together they are called Tethyans.

Opposed to the Tethyans are the Overlords. While Tethyans devote themselves to the stewardship of humankind and the earth, the Overlords are devoted only to profit and power.

Gaia’s Majesty: Discovery begins the trilogy which explores if Gaia’s preparations will succeed. Is this story a myth, or like so many myths, does it reside on the cusp of reality? – Goodreads
