Patrick Ness Read-A-Thon

In celebration of Patrick Ness’s upcoming release, And the Ocean Was Our Sky, which we’re lucky enough to be launching with The Little Bookroom, we decided to host a read-a-thon with some of Ness’s previous works to get us even more excited!

36979356And the Ocean Was Our Sky

With harpoons strapped to their backs, the proud whales of Bathsheba’s pod live for the hunt, fighting in the ongoing war against the world of men. When they attack a ship bobbing on the surface of the Abyss, they expect to find easy prey. Instead, they find the trail of a myth, a monster, perhaps the devil himself…

As their relentless Captain leads the chase, they embark on a final, vengeful hunt, one that will forever change the worlds of both whales and men.
