The Sunken City Of Averorn and Fighting The Kraken.
Dominic Flandry's opponent, A'u:
is fifteen metres long;
has wrinkled leather skin;
has the gape of a whale and horrible teeth;
has boneless arms with hands;
rages among the men hunting him in the endless Nyanzan sea;
plucks limbs from two men with the talons on his legs;
is filled with harpoons;
is killed by a harpoon through an eye into the brain.
James Bond, falling from a cliff into the sea at a point where a giant squid is trapped behind a fence, climbs the fence, evades tentacles and stabs an eye with an improvised spear. The squid empties its ink sac and sinks, presumably dead.
