Tom is an outstanding sailor who knows the seas like the back of his hand. But one day, while they’re ashore, he has a very odd encounter. He doesn’t know if it’s a mirage or if it’s real, but the object he is given may well save his life.
Shortly afterwards his boat is wrecked. Tom then has to survive in the depths of the sea, in a world he knows nothing about. His guides are nevertheless there to help him. But doesn’t he have a greater destiny in store?
Between prophecy and adventure, this novel plunges us into the unexplored depths of the sea where Atlantis and the Mayas are brought back to life.
