"What's impressive about this novel [is that] it occupies so much literary territory. It is at once a romance, an adventure story, an environmental polemic, and a keen study of just how animalistic humans are."
--Phoebe Literary Journal"I promise that you will finish the book with a different perspective regarding our responsibility to life in the sea."
--Penguin News Today"This is a book for all of humanity, one that questions our actions and leaves us quaking with the consequences."
