About this deal

Fionn Boyle comes from a long line of brave seafarers, people with the ocean behind their eyes. But he can't help but fear the open sea. For years, Fionn's mother has told him stories of Arranmore Island, a strange place that seems to haunt her. Fionn has always wondered about this mysterious island, and from the day he arrives he starts noticing things that can't be explained. He can sense the island all around him, and it feels like the island is watching him, too. As Fionn discovers his grandfather has been the Storm Keeper all along, an incredible world of magic unfolds before his eyes, starting with a battle to become the next Storm Keeper and an underground menace waiting for Fionn's arrival to the island, and carrying on with terrifying creatures called Soulstalkers arriving on the island and their scary all-powerful sorceress Morrigan. Catherine Doyle is one of the UK's best children's author, with this series selling in multiple languages across the world, and has also written The Lost Girl King and the exciting YA Twin Crowns books.

The Storm Keeper’s Island, by Catherine Doyle | Book Review The Storm Keeper’s Island, by Catherine Doyle | Book Review

I like how Fionn and Tara’s relationship started to grow throughout the story. I also like that at the start you read the letter and as the story went on you understood it more. I would like to read the sequels and see what happens next. I got a little bit scared when their granddad forgets things. I would definitely give the book 10/10. It’s Fionn’s first visit, and not only has Tara kept loads of information from Fionn, she abandons him with their grandfather pretty much from the moment they arrive. Left to himself, Fionn ends up learning more about the island and who his grandfather really is – the Storm Keeper whose role is to protect the island from a dark magic buried centuries ago. This book was amazing. I bought it for my daughter to read and she enjoyed it so much that she asked me to read it. I thought it was great. It left me wondering what happened next.

The magic of Arranmore island is truly unique, as is the ability for Fionn and his grandfather to revisit different layers – or points in the island’s history – by burning candles made from previous Storm Keepers. Readers will be swept away by the setting and atmosphere of Arranmore as Fionn discovers its history and secrets, leading to a dramatic ending that will leave children clambering for book two. Catherine Doyle has created a magical story that will delight young readers looking for a fresh fantasy. Fionn is an inspiring character that middle-grade readers can relate to, especially those who are beginning to realize their own insecurities and who dream of having more courage. In addition, the detailed world Doyle creates is just as much a part of the story as the characters themselves. Her vivid descriptions of Arranmore, which is inspired by the real-life island where her ancestors lived, prove Fionn’s belief that “places can be just as important as people[, and] can have the same power over you if you let them.” Fionn Boyle and his older sister Tara are about to spend their summer on the remote island of Arranmore, off the coast of Ireland, staying with their grandfather. Tara, having been there the summer before, already has friends and knows many of the island’s secrets.
