A long-told story of the sea people and their song - and a golden eye, glittering in a pool at the edge of a desert . . . A ferocious serpent, its body as think as the trunk of a huge tree - and the immense, unknowable Kraken, dark beyond black, cold beyond ice, waking on the ocean floor . . . Immerse yourself in this mesmorising collection of short stories inspired buy the element of Water - and be swept away by the supurb storytelling skills of two major award-winning authors.
