September Book of the Month
When Fionn Boyle sets foot on Arranmore Island, it begins to stir beneath his feet …Once in a generation, Arranmore Island chooses a new Storm Keeper to wield its power and keep its magic safe from enemies.
The time has come for Fionn’s grandfather, a secretive and eccentric old man, to step down.
Soon, a new Keeper will rise. But, deep underground, someone has been waiting for Fionn. As the battle to become the island’s next champion rages, a more sinister magic is waking up, intent on rekindling an ancient war.
Catherine Doyle’s magical, mystical adventure is an absolute must read. A beautifully written story with engaging characters which builds up to a nail biting climax. The description of the island and the elements completely draws you in. You can almost taste the salty tang of the sea and hear the crashing waves as you are swept along by the wild weather. Story telling at it’s best. The open ending hopefully means that there are more Storm Keeper adventures to come…can’t wait.
The Storm Keeper’s Island is available to loan as a class reading set.
