"fascinating science fiction"

Long ago the people of Atlaua knew war and disease but one of their priests born with Psi power attracted the attentions of the S'hazons. They left their corporeal bodies long ago and are now beings of light and energy that can travel to different dimensions. They gave humanity the ability to abolish war and heal the sick. They set up the House of Lohenrin where initiates study the power and if they are good enough, go on to become preceptors and masters.

Since her mother's death, the only thing that Elinna has ever wanted to do is enter the House and learn the ways of healing. When Elinna goes to be tested, it becomes obvious she has Psi power in abundance and is accepted into the house where she studies hard to become a preceptor and then a Master. While she is busy studying, the old religion regains power and turns against the S'hazons, saying they are using humanity for their own purposes. Elinna discovers some truths about the S'hazons that startle her and she must discover their true intent, for her first loyalty is to Atlaua, not the demigods she once revered.

Jeanine Berry has written a fascinating science fiction work that will keep readers so interested they will finish the book in one sitting. The heroine is a strong woman not afraid to face the truth about her teachers and is willing to fight them if they are not the good souls she believes them to be. Atlaua is a fascinating world, one this reviewer wishes she could visit.

What if ancient Atlantis never sank beneath the waves?

On an alternate earth called Gaea, the island kingdom of Atlaua is the home of a glorious civilization. For a thousand years the S'hazons, demigods from another dimension, have guided the psiborn humans of Atlaua in the use of the Power. But now the centuries-old peace is about to be broken forever. An ancient race of gods from Atlaua's distant past returns to claim the loyalty of her people. As the Sky Gods and the S'hazons clash, Atlaua's fate hangs in the balance. Only the Perceptors of the House of Lohenrin, masters of the Power, can discover the truth about the warring gods--but will they learn it in time?

Dayspring Dawning is the first book in the Dayspring series. Elinna Serru has long dreamed of entering the House of Lohenrin to study the Power under the S'hazons. But her dreams of becoming a healer are shattered when an even more ancient race of gods returns to Atlaua. Soon the people of her land are divided and the man she loves challenges her to discover the truth--which gods are lying?
