From the multi-award-winning author of A Monster Calls comes a haunting tale of power and obsession that turns the story of Moby Dick upside down. "Call me Bathsheba." The whales of Bathsheba's pod live for the hunt. Led by the formidable Captain Alexandra, they fight a never-ending war against men.

Then the whales attack a man ship, and instead of easy prey they find the trail of a myth, a monster, perhaps the devil himself... With their relentless Captain leading the chase, they embark on the final hunt, one that will forever change the worlds of whales and men.

In this interview, Patrick Ness talks to Nikki Gamble about his latest novel, Burn. Set in an alternate 1950s America at the height of the space race and amid racial tensions, this is an America that we recognise from history, but not quite. This world is populated by Dragons.
