'Sohrab is anthropomorphic literature for Young Adults, and others, using its own folklore, history and mythology in a book of believable characters who bring us into their world, from which we are held in the struggle of good over evil in the Under World of unique twins, Sohrab and Freya, who grow over the seasons to become twice the average length of sperm whales in a story of conquest, tyranny and freedom. Other major characters are Beacher (representing the spirit) and Redbone, the malevolent warrior, who builds up a tyrannical regime in the Under World, where Sohrab is cast out before he fully grows, and Freya becomes Redbone’s mistress, telepathically summoning her brother to return from the deep ocean, from which he comes to challenge Redbone, and then The Other (humans) of the Upper World whose trawlers come to be his ultimate battle. The peace, and price, which follows in the Under World also reflects changes in Ragnorak (land). Connected to all this is the relationships between individuals and sets of characters, all built around two larger than life figures, literally and metaphorically, in an underlying current of history and hope in the world today.'
