Description:
Master storyteller Todd Strasser reimagines the classic tale of 'Moby Dick 'as set in the future and takes readers on an epic sci-fi adventure. When seventeen-year-old Ishmael wakes up from stasis aboard the 'Pequod, 'he is amazed by how different this planet is from the dirty, dying, Shroud-covered Earth he left behind. But Ishmael isn t on Cretacea' 'to marvel at the fresh air, sunshine, and endless blue ocean. He s here to work, risking his life to hunt down great ocean-dwelling beasts to harvest and send back to the resource-depleted Earth. Even though easy prey abounds, time and again the chase boat crews are ordered to ignore it in order to pursue the elusive Great Terrafin. It s rumored that the ship s captain, Ahab, lost his leg to the beast years ago, and that he s now consumed by revenge. But there may be more to Captain Ahab s obsession. Dark secrets and dangerous exploits swirl around the pursuit of the beast, and Ishmael must do his best to survive if he can.'
