‘Call me Bathsheba’. So begins this haunting novel by the multi-award-winning author of ‘A Monster Calls’, echoing the most famous opening sentence ever written. In this novel, the world of Moby Dick is turned upside down, and we see the story through the eyes of the whale. Bathsheba’s tale is of the hunt for a legend and a myth, the hunt for a devil named Toby Wick, whose white hull lurks in the deep. She is bound by an ancient prophecy to find him. But is he really the devil that Bathsheba seeks?

“A haunting, lyrical fable.” – The Bookseller

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.

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.
