Summary from Goodreads: With harpoons strapped to their backs, the proud whales of Bathsheba's pod live for the hunt, fighting in the ongoing war against the world of men. When they attack a ship bobbing on the surface of the Abyss, they expect to find easy prey. Instead, they find the trail of a myth, a monster, perhaps the devil himself...

As their relentless Captain leads the chase, they embark on a final, vengeful hunt, one that will forever change the worlds of both whales and men.



Review: Can you find a more bizarre book? Reading this was like flipping Moby Dick on its head. A strange world where the whales are the main characters and they are in a battle with the men above. You would think that this wouldn't work, but it does. There is something so alluring about this book that I was excited to read another page and another page. I devoured this book.
