Summary: In my America, surfing is a deadly sport, where players ride jet-powered boards while battling mechanized seamonsters. Muscled women are the most rare and beautiful of them all. And science is the foundation on which everything is built. "If this land hadn't been here when my ancestors had lost everything. Have you ever wondered.? Have you ever wondered what it would be like if America wasn't here?" Nicole shrugged. She fanned her hand out to the fog. "All of this--that stuff out there--would be Seas as far as the eye could see. There would be this great gulf between Canada and Mexico. There would be some dispute over who owned that new water, I'm sure. Maybe even conspiracy, murder, and war over it." "There would be piracy on the high Seas again," I said with a smile. "Piracy!" She obviously thought it was ludicrous. Codice inventario libreria
AN INGENIOUS RACE OF INVENTORS.
A LEGENDARY ISLAND SUNK FOREVER.
ONE CHANCE TO STOP IT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN.
12,000 years ago, Atlantis sank beneath the Seas.
But there were survivors.
And they are alive, today, in America.
Salomon Nathaniel Slackwater is a descendant of Atlantean immigrants... and he is about to go on the adventure of a lifetime.
The Atlanteans are enjoying a comfortable existence living among the Americans. They fall in love with Muses, in their opinion the cream of the crop of women. They invent to their hearts content. And they are avid swimmers, playing surfing games atop motorized surfboards with mechanized seamonsters in hot pursuit.
Meanwhile, water slowly rises off the coasts of California and New York, massive landbergs break free and float aimlessly, buildings are submerged--and it all brings out the crazies. Nazis praise the end of America at last, ecoterrorists ride whales to do their bidding...
Nathaniel is not as smart as his legendary relatives, prefers American girls and can't hardly swim. In the midst of crisis, he just wouldn't be any use. Or would he?
All his life, strange things have happened, but on his seventeenth birthday it's the strangest yet. Hundreds of gifts come by seagull, a fiery demon wants what's in his head and gremlins want him dead.
With his American girlfriend and his Muse at his side, he sets off into the strangest, most remote parts of the country to find himself... and a happy ending for us all.
Sinossi: AN INGENIOUS RACE OF INVENTORS. A LEGENDARY ISLAND SUNK FOREVER. ONE CHANCE TO STOP IT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN. Go back to when you were seventeen years old, when there was so much fear and uncertainty about the future: living on your own, getting a job, not knowing what you wanted to do with your life. Our hero, Salomon Nathaniel Slackwater, has that to worry about and more: he's a descendant of Atlantean immigrants and their standards and expectations are lofty and bizarre. Twelve thousand years ago, Atlantis disappeared beneath the Seas, never to be seen or heard from again. But the survivors' bloodline has thrived and they have all been living in secret across modern day America. Salomon is one such Atlantean. Legend has it that the men of Atlantis were great swimmers, incredibly intelligent and quite fond of Muses. But Salomon has nearly drowned on more than one occasion and has almost become the meal of countless monsters of the Seas. He is not overly intelligent and will surely never come up with the Next Big Thing. And he just happens to prefer American girls and is presently engaging in a potentially scandalous affair. Salomon seems to be special for all the wrong reasons and yet that just might come in handy: it seems that America is about to face the same fate as Atlantis and it could take something special to save us all. 86,450 words. 396 pages.
