The Shark Caller by Zillah Bethell

I want to be able to call the sharks. Teach me the magic and show me the ways.

A beautiful tale of love, loss, family and forgiveness set in Papua New Guinea. Blue Wing is obsessed with revenge on the shark that killed her parents but is denied lessons that will enable her to become a shark caller giving her the ability to summon sharks to call to the one that she desires to slay.

Thrown together with Maple, a newcomer to the island at first they are combative but as they spend time together they form a tentative friendship and start unpicking the sadness and grief that they each possess and begin a slow journey towards understanding, acceptance and healing.

I received a copy of The Shark Caller via Netgalley and it arrived soon after my family had experienced a tragic loss. Reading this book helped me in a small way to cope with my loss and for that I will always be grateful to the author Zillah Bethel.

The Shark Caller is published by Usborne Publishing Ltd and will be released on February 4th 2021.
