The Compliment

The Compliment

“There’s more than one fish in the sea,” so the saying goes. For Sula this is certainly true, for she lives in an ocean of diverse creatures from tiny to colossal, from gentle to aggressive. Some being so dangerous they seek to make her part of their daily diet. Only the unimaginable and bizarre circumstances of her conception make her existence even possible in this harsh world. This diversity and variety add delight and adventure to her charmed life until she becomes of age and realizes that every creature in her vast world has a compliment - a mate - with which they can produce little ones of their kind. That is, every creature but her. Since they all come from a mating pair, where is she to find the pair that produced her? Her quest leads to adventures and discoveries both delightful and frightening, until it eventually leads her to her mate - her compliment - in a love story to rival the classics as her life unfolds.
