Tales of Dawn is a spin-off series, set thirteen years after The Esa Chronicles. The main protagonist is Dawn, a young goddess who finds out she is the daughter of Triton, the now fallen king of Atlantis. With her friend Leon and her Atlantean family by her side, her story has only begun.
Esa finds out about her daughter's whereabouts and regains her memories, going out to find her. However, it may mean facing against the husband she divorced and Savantia. It may end up very ugly... or at least very awkward.
Dawn and Esa have a major falling out after the former discovers the latter trying to force Triton into leaving Savantia, as she was unable to move on from the divorce before her memory was removed. This may lead to dire consequences and one of the toughest choices Dawn has to ever make.
When chaos breaks loose after Esa's plan was discovered, Dawn decides to run (or rather swim) away from the pain, taking Leon with her. However, she may have unintentionally had someone follow her: Pallas, having been worried for her. What more can Dawn take?
Savantia is hiding something,for even she fears the wrath of Esa; she (Savantia) is currently pregnant with twins.As the months pass,the secret becomes harder to hide, and someone is bound to find out about it.
Everything that happened (regaining her memory, Dawn choosing to stay with her father, Triton's refusal to leave his wife, and discovering Savantia's pregnancy) drives Esa mad, causing a certain goddess of chaos to make a deal with her, one that may threaten Atlantis and Savantia's family. Unfortunately for Savantia, she is in the middle of giving birth.
After her mother was imprisoned for her actions, Dawn ends up living with her new family, including the newborn twins. However, she deeply misses her biological mother, regretting every wrong thing she did to her. How long before someone steps up and helps the young goddess with her struggles?
Panic ensues when it is discovered that Esa had been set free from her prison by someone. Dawn, Pallas, and Leon investigate, which leads to them finding an angel-turned-merman who has unhealthy intentions for Savantia.
After Sariel and Esa create a serum that causes unrelenting nightmares to even gods, they end up accidentally using it on Pallas in the middle of an argument on who in the family to use it on. Until someone whips up a cure, Pallas' nightmares will endure, especially with what dark powers it will give her.
After Sariel and Esa's latest attempt to have the royal couple separated, Savantia has had enough and decides to use her storm powers to get rid of them. However, it backfires and instead severely injures Dawn. Will she ever forgive Savantia? Will Savantia forgive herself?
Esa begins to question if her feelings have shifted from Triton to Sariel as time keeps going on, leading Savantia to have an idea that could eliminate the two antagonists peacefully. But what consequences will come when she puts it in action?
Weeks have passed since Savantia set her plan in motion, and the family begins to notice Esa and Sariel's lack of activity against the family. However, when Dawn and her companions set out to find out exactly why the two have suddenly ceased to harass them, they are in for a surprise.
Dawn accidentally travels to the past on the fateful day Esa was to choose to stay with the mortals, where one simple action the redhead makes will change her mother's mind and the present. Will Dawn be able to change it back?
After Triton ends up hospitalized, he starts feeling an inner rage, worse than ever before. Lost in his mind on whether to give in to said rage, he disappears from the hospital, Dawn going out to look for him.
Triton's rage comes to a head, and this causes him to make a mistake not even time itself can erase. Meanwhile, Savantia has proposed to Esa, who accepts joyously, which is the root of the madness that fills Triton's head.
A paranoid Dawn, with her friend Alec, looks for Triton in the chasm he fell in, wondering if he even survived from his lost battle with Savantia. This will result in a shocking discovery and the toughest task that Dawn will ever commit in her life.
