Dolphin Way Rise of the Guardians by Mark Caney

Dolphin Way Rise of the Guardians


Dolphin Way Rise of the Guardians by Mark Caney

Dolphin culture evolved over millions of years so they could remain perfectly attuned with their world, Ocean. Unlike man, they have created an almost utopian society without feeling the need to manipulate their environment, collect possessions or wage war. But the growing pressure of man's activities become intolerable and in frustration one faction seeks an aggressive new path, making a shocking departure from The Way - the ancient philosophy that has guided them so well through the millennia. Sky, a male dolphin close to becoming an Initiate in The Way, unwillingly finds himself caught up in the violent consequences. To save the lives of his closest friends he will have to risk the worst punishment his clan can inflict and must decide between the two females who challenge everything he believes in.


Masterfully weaves a believable tale of dolphin life - you will never look at a dolphin the same way again! Mark Evans, Sport Diver Magazine A superbly plotted, accomplished and entertaining novel with a powerful environmental message describing the intolerable pressure from man's destruction of the dolphins
