"Mind-bendingly brilliant and fearlessly strange." - Frances Hardinge
"A haunting, lyrical fable." - The Bookseller
"Awe-inspiring." - The Times, Children's Book of the Week

From the multi-award-winning author of A Monster Calls comes a haunting tale of power and obsession that turns the story of Moby Dick upside down.

The whales of Bathsheba's pod live for the hunt. Led by the formidable Captain Alexandra, they fight a never-ending war against men. Then the whales attack a man ship, and instead of easy prey they find the trail of a myth, a monster, perhaps the devil himself... With their relentless Captain leading the chase, they embark on the final hunt, one that will forever change the worlds of whales and men.

Review:

Ness explores war, power and obsession in a haunting, lyrical fable that reimagines the story of Moby Dick from the perspective of the whales. * The Bookseller * Ness's imagination is often awe-inspiring; he goes to places no whale has gone before and is never short of a deep thought. This is not just a story about hunting whales, it's a comment on the futility of war, and the myths that we create and use as excuses for our actions. * The Times, Children's Book of the Week * "With gorgeous, eerie illustrations threaded through the narrative and enhancing the haunting lyricism and prose, this is a beautiful and deeply strange book that tips your perspective upside-down and pitches you head-first into the cold heights of the oceans." * The Scotsman * "Beautiful illustrations make this hardback a special gift and would suit teens who are after something thought-provoking and a little bit different." * Country Life * "Rovina Cai's darkly powerful and shadowy illustrations shot through with blood-red (her sharks are particularly terrifying), do help you get a grip on the whales' underwater civilisation." --* Women's Way *
