When the imminent death of a far-flung planet causes its inhabitants to scatter seedpods throughout the galaxy, one of these meteors plummets deep into Earth's ocean floor. In time, the sea and the stone give birth to aquatic humanoids, the first sentient beings on this once-lifeless planet-and so begins Earth's epic tale of woe.
Darkening the history of the Aquatics is the ill-fated Hyperion, the jealous and paranoid prince of the Pacific, who, in a failed attempt to murder two Aquatics, inadvertently gives rise to a new land-dwelling life-form: the mouth breather. This marks the first steps of human history.
Now, thousands of years later, Earth faces its own impending doom as global warming threatens to submerge the entire planet. But this doesn't just spell the end of life for humans. The Aquatics are also suffering from the ecological imbalance. And if either hopes to survive, they must trust each other and work toward a shared future.
But the long-banished Hyperion has been brooding, and he may prove to be the supreme danger-unless someone can wield the trident stuck in the Sea Stone.

Gregg Nolan grew up on a farm in upstate New York. After being honorably discharged following two years of service in the US Army, he moved to Florida and became an emergency medical technician. While working on an ambulance, he also trained to become a professional firefighter.
Now, twenty-seven years later, as he retires from a long career of firefighting, Nolan takes his love of all things science fiction to a new level with his debut novel. Sea City is the epic result, and a portion of the proceeds of each sale will be donated to the wounded veterans' services.

Just finished this excellent read! I loved the dynamic characters and the setting of the story. You actually feel like you are in the ocean beside them! I could not put this book down and I loved the way it keeps you guessing what will happen next. I would highly recommend this book to a wide variety of readers as it covers all the elements of a great read! I would love to see a sequel as the characters and their relationships were fun to get to know. And, we could all explore more of their underwater world and also the characters on the land as well!! This would be a really cool book to be made into a movie as it reminds of the movies - Avatar and The Abyss. If you liked either of these movies, I am sure you would enjoy this book. ENJOY!!!!
