Book Description:

Do mermaids believe in humans?

While working on a deep-sea diving assignment at the University of California, oceanography student Jay Bishop is dragged into a volcanic tube towards the earth's core and certain death.

But much to his surprise, Jay not only survives the fall, he finds himself taken prisoner by a community of mermaids and kept alive as a science experiment. Confused and disoriented, Jay's only hope to escape back to the surface is found in Paga, an elder of the community who believes Jay's unexpected arrival marks the fulfillment of a terrifying prophecy.

With the community rising against them, Jay and Paga face dangerous choices -- and their consequences -- if Jay is ever to see home again. Will Jay make it back to the world on the surface? And even if he does, how can his life ever be the same ever again?

My Review:

Across the Floors of Silent Seas is a unique story about mermaids who don't believe that humans exist. Jay is a human who, after a diving accident, ends up rescued by mermaids. Even though they keep him for observation and run many tests, they don't believe his claims of coming from the world above. None of them do, except for one counsel member named Paga. This novella has an element of thriller/horror and it's also an allegory.
