Roma Mater

(1986)
(The first book in the King of Ys series)
A novel by

 
Fantasy - Book one of one of the greatest epic fantasies of the 1980's. The King of Ys is a historical fantasy - it is set in our world just before the fall of the Roman Empire and it mixes in the legend of the mythical city of Ys which was built below sea level on the coast of Brittany. Many of the characters in The King of Ys (Roman emperors, Christian saints, etc) are based on legendary and real historical figures and Poul and Karen Anderson include plenty of footnotes which explain the legend of Ys and the culture and religion of the 5th century.
