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. "Call me Bathsheba." 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.

Recensioner i media

"As in all his work, the writing is clear and often lyrical, and the story moves with plenty of pace. [...] Rovina Cai's full-page and double-page illustrations are beautiful in their own right, but they're a real enhancement to the story and perfectly integrated into the design. I loved it, and you can call me Ishmael if it doesn't end up on several prize shortlists." * Guardian.com * 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 * "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 * Mind-bendingly brilliant and fearlessly strange! * Frances Hardinge, author of 'The Lie Tree' *
