On an ocean, where marines hunt pirates who hunt whalers who hunt whales, an animal-loving orphan will find out what it is like to be both predator and prey.
Draden, a 15-year-old boy trapped in a brutal island orphanage, finds solace in nurturing Maggie, a motherless lamb. When Draden is caught rescuing Maggie from the feast for the start of whaling season, the matron sentences him to 10 lashes. A visiting captain cuts him a deal to escape the lash and the matron forever, on one cruel condition: He helps the captain hunt whales.
After the whaling ship's destination is revealed to be the last untapped whaling grounds, guarded by the man who tore Draden's family apart, the famed pirate Silverbeard, Draden must decide what and who he is willing to kill to gain vengeance.
Treasure Island meets Moby Dick, Draden's Whale is a high-seas adventure where the answers to moral questions are deadly.
