The Pandeia and Leukai by Ima Ami

In Greek mythology, the small islands of Leukai were created after a musical contest between the Sirens and the Muses. Out of their anguish from losing the competition, the Muses plucked their rivals’ feathers from their wings; the Sirens turned white and fell into the sea at Aptera, where they formed the islands in the bay that were called Leukai. Souda, as it is known today, is an islet in Souda Bay on the northwest coast of Crete. In ancient times, this islet was one of two islets that were referred to as Leukai. The second islet is known today as Leon.Sirens were beautiful but dangerous creatures that lured sailors to their demise with their serene and enchanting songs, causing ships to crash on reefs near their islands.Based on this myth, The Pandeia and Leukai is a Shakespearean style sonnet written in fourteen parts. It tells an epic saga of the battle between the noble Captain Hector and the evil siren, Leukai. With the help of the Muses, Hyades, Hera, and other Greek deities, the good Captain avenges the lives of his loyal crew who Leukai lured to their deaths in the sea. Both Heaven and Earth join together to defeat the evil witch. She is cursed by her own arrogance, to live a fate worse than death, for all eternity.

Witch of the Water by Kyle Wieczorek

Far beneath the crashing ocean tide lies a mystical kingdom, hidden from the world above. It’s a magical place, full of wonder and enchantment, where mythological creatures dwell, and mermaids roam freely.
Over the centuries, there have been countless renditions and retellings of the class fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, the tale of a young mermaid princess who strikes a bargain with a conniving sea hag in exchange for the opportunity to be with her one true love.
This story, on the other hand, takes a darker twist, diving into the previously unknown origins of the mysterious sorceress, once Sequana, a headstrong, knowledge-seeking mermaid and devoted daughter of a powerful sea king. Wounded by a heartbreaking betrayal, Sequana finds herself struggling between good and evil, and is faced with a choice that could jeopardize herself and everyone she loves.
