Haunted by the vicious creatures of his recent past, Pitu tries to go back to a normal life at home after the other-worldly travels and near-death encounters of his recent disappearance into the world of the spirits. But Pitu knows that there is more work to be done, and more that he must learn in his new role as a shaman. When word of a starving village nearby reaches Pitu, he must go help its people appease the angry spirits. It soon becomes clear that Pitu must travel to the bottom of the ocean to meet Nuliajuk, the vengeful woman below, one of the most powerful beings in Inuit mythology. There he learns about his role in saving the starving community and that all in his home camp may not be as it seems . . .

About the Illustrator

From his early days of reading sci-fi and fantasy books, Toma Feizo Gas has been fascinated
with the dramatic scenes portrayed on the covers of those books. There started his lifelong love
affair with telling stories through pictures. Today, Toma’s key influence remains the people in
these stories, the motives that drive us, and the decisions that shape us, propelling him to craft
bold visual statements and contrast in his own art. As a career illustrator, his work can be found
gracing the pages and covers of titles such as Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, the Star Wars and
Mutant Chronicles role-playing games, as well as several upcoming fantasy novel series
