    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. This remarkable work turns the familiar tale of Moby Dick upside down and tells a story all its own with epic triumph and devastating fate.
