A boy with ESP powers and a magic narwhal tusk set a remote Scillonian island aflame. A mystery thriller with a difference.

Book Description

When Gray retrieves an engraved narwhal’s tusk from the sea disturbing changes begin to happen to both marine and bird life. The islanders suspect Gray’s unusual powers of being able to communicate with seals and other creatures as the cause of the unrest. They find the tusk he has hidden away and fear that an ancient prophecy threatening the island will come to pass since they have always considered the narwhal as an omen of disaster. Gray finds himself a victim of a confused and complex web of superstition as the islanders decide a ritual sacrifice must be made. How can he prove his innocence and escape their final condemnation of him?

Narwhal was shortlisted for the Cinnamon Press Awards.
