A richly illustrated story inspired by Moby Dick about the war between whales and men—and the monsters that drive them both—by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Monster Calls.
From the inimitable author of A Monster Calls comes a lyrical, harrowing tale that flips a classic story of violent obsession on its head with heart-stopping questions about power, loyalty, and the monsters we make.
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 find the trail of a myth, a monster, perhaps the devil himself.
With their relentless Captain leading the chase, they embark on a final, vengeful hunt, one that will forever change the worlds of both whales and men.
