First Lines:

Under a white sun, we sailed across a submerged world. Below these waters were the towns, fields and hills of our ancestors. The ruins of the old world formed islands that were dangerous for we who fished the seas around the Isles of Sheffield.

Before us, rising silently from the black water like giant robots, was a field of old electricity pylons. To reach the best fishing grounds, we had to navigate this obstacle.

 

Contents:

Year 2041. Half of Great Britain has vanished under the sea. Young Pete, on board Orpheum Lass, is compelled with the rest of the crew to stop on Cannock, a mysterious island inhabited by a terrifying population who turned the place into a hunting ground.
