In the style of ancient poems of myth and monsters, “In the Sounds and Seas: Volume 1” begins with an invocation to the singers of the story. Three figures are sitting around a fire in the woods and, once filled with song, they open their mouths and the story bursts forth. Their songs weave together and blend, forming the world of the rest of the book. The protagonist of the remainder of the book first appears at the end of a pier in a small coastal island town, looking towards the horizon with a scowl. The world of the singers is now gone, but hints of it glimmer in the new worldShe learns she is part of the story, and means to sail to the edge of the sea to find the singers and join their song.
