In the years after the stars fell young Noah Manaluk, an Inupiat Eskimo living at Point Hope, Alaska, eats a piece of possessed raw seal liver that changes his life.
Thinker, a Humpback whale, is the only one of his pod who perceives anything beyond his immediate surroundings.
Suddenly he can communicate with another being - and it wants to kill him.
And this is just the start of their story.
