Annotation

Interweaving Inuit and Norse mythology, The Wolf in The Whale is a magical coming-of-age tale featuring an unforgettable narrator ready to confront the gods themselves.

Summary

A young Inuit shaman's epic quest for survival in the frozen lands of North America in 1000 AD.

Born with the soul of a hunter and the language of the gods, Omat is destined to become a shaman like her grandfather. To protect her people, she invokes the spirits of the sky, the sea and the air.

But the gods have stopped listening, the seals won't come and Omat's family is starving.

Desperate to save them, Omat journeys through the icy wastes, fighting for survival with every step. When she meets a Viking warrior and his strange new gods, together they set in motion a conflict that could shatter her world . . . or save it.

The Wolf in the Whale is a powerful fantasy tale of magic, discovery and adventure, featuring an unforgettable narrator ready to confront the gods themselves.
