"Its limbs whipped out and made erratic lightning shapes and a hard little beak pressed against her skin. It had the most beautiful eyes, beaten gold with a human's pupils, and she thought: like the sea monsters on the best illuminated manuscripts. After it got over its startlement or perhaps decided she would neither eat nor be frightened, it prompted squeezed her fingers in an eightfold hug." S.M. Wheeler's debut novel about a young woman's loyalty to an affable, talking sea monster take us to protected places that we can all share. Captivating and artfully written; eventful and arresting; unmistakable evidence of a talented new author to be watched; editor's recommendation.
