What magical beings inhabit earth?s waters? Some are as almost-familiar as the mer- people; some as strange as the thing glimpsed only as a golden eye in a pool at the edge of Damar?s Great Desert Kalarsham, where the mad god Geljdreth rules; or as majestic as the unknowable, immense Kraken, dark beyond the darkness of the deepest ocean, who will one day rise and rule the world. These six tales from the remarkable storytellers Robin McKinley and Peter Dickinson transform the simple element of water into something very powerful indeed.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am a huge fan of Robin McKinley's books so when I discovered this collection of short stories in my local library I jumped at it. As soon as I finished reading them I went and bought my own copy, they were that good. I highly recommend these stories for both the avid fan and the beginner.
