The Coming of the Whirlpool: Ship Kings 1 by Andrew McGahan

Dom, a boy of forests and tall timbers, has inextricably been drawn to the sea. Little does he know that his blood is of the line of great ship admirals who battled the Ship Kings decades before, now rulers of his land. Defying his fate as oldest of his siblings to follow his father, he battles his way to the sea, only to be tested to the very limits of his endurance and beyond. A mighty story of courage, resilience and determination for readers who aspire to great heights.

Suitable ages 10 plus and adults.
