About the book:


A small island is being formed in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Spirits and sea creatures have excitedly wathced the creation and with each new mountain, waterfall, rock and glacier, a new and powerful guardian of the land comes alive. Some are hot as fire and others cold as ice, perhaps explaining why they are always arguing with one another. One fine day, humans arrive on their fish-birds, and settle on the island.
