Margaret Gill is an incredibly talented writer. Her writing has a wonderfully lyrical style and her descriptive powers are second to none. In the unravelling of a tale so sensitive yet so stirring, she keeps the reader tantalisingly on the edge of their seat throughout. Her attention to minute detail and understanding of human emotion sees this mixture of myth, legend, and reality interacting to marvellous effect.

‘Narwhal’ is a truly exceptional book from an amazing author. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish with a plot so wonderfully constructed, this book cannot fail to be a winner.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595481779, Paperback)

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.
