WOBURN, Mass. (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
In a world no longer blessed with virtue, there remains a place amongst the moving icebergs, cradled between the twilight of dreams, yet hidden from the nightmare of man. It is a sanctuary that has miraculously clung to its innocence… a faraway place… a place called Sealssong – the place where seals come to give birth. Marco Rosato combines fantasy, action and a daring save the seals symbolic of the fight between killers of the environment and those who protect it. It is moving, poetic fiction that is Rosato’s tribute to the resilience, beauty and innocence of harp seals.
A dying girl is about to find out that there are more things in life to fear than death itself. Born with gifts beyond that of natural reasoning, young Emma finds herself spirited away by an evil relative desperately seeking out her angelic powers in order to fulfill a most diabolical prophecy. Meantime, her tortured brother Kenyan is held captive in a haunted ship. She is sent to find Sealssong by this relative and in the process learns to exist in a world overflowing with wonders beyond her wildest dreams.
The evil relative is her aunt Decara, a tear-stealing villainess on a dastardly quest to find a sacred teardrop housed inside a purple stone–in fact, the first teardrop shed by the sea itself. Decara sails the seas, capturing female harp seals to steal their tears and turn them into diamonds but it is the sacred teardrop that she most covets. For author Marco Rosato, who was traumatized as child upon seeing the destruction of harp seals, this teardrop possesses enormous powers, a great talisman worn by an orphaned baby harp seal named Miracle. It is the great spirit of the sea that Rosato invokes to protect the harp seals. Miracle must first learn to survive in a fantastic world confronting deadly seal hunters and the bloodshed they bring. For it is he who now inherits the powerful tear and it is he who Emma soon comes to realize that she must kill to fulfill the evil prophecy! Emma and Miracle, however, have formed a bond in friendship and she, along with Miracle, must find a way out of this dangerous dilemma.
Together, they will embark on the ultimate journey that could at last bring the light of peace to the world, or shadow it forever in darkness, with a malevolent midnight that will devour Sealssong and mankind for all time.
