Review

Fionn Boyle and his older sister, Tara, are sent to live with their grandfather on the remote island of Arranmore for the summer.

Once he arrives, Fionn quickly discovers that both the island and his granddad have secrets of their own and he is drawn into this strange, mystical world, Fionn finds himself in the middle of an epic battle between the forces of nature that will affect his destiny in ways he couldn’t have imagined.

This moving and lyrical novel weaves together themes of love, loss, bravery and family loyalty, all wrapped up in a magical tale of daring adventure.

It’s beautifully written, with vivid descriptions and strikingly original metaphors that will capture young readers’ imaginations.

Author Catherine Doyle has created a gripping fantasy story that is a perfect read-aloud for a UKS2 class. I couldn’t put it down, and the children won’t want you to, either.
