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.
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 his grandfather, a secretive and eccentric old man, to step down. But as Fionn and the other descendants of Arranmore’s most powerful families fight to become the island’s next champion, a more sinister magic is waking up, intent on rekindling a long-ago war and changing Fionn’s life and the island’s future forever.
I loved this magical story! This story takes place on the island of Arranmore where there’s magic overflowing into the sea! Fionn and his sister go to Arranmore to spend time with their grandfather, Malachy.
Fionn discovers many things during his stay, one of which is his grandfather is the Island’s Storm Keeper. The island will soon be picking a new storm keeper. Will it be Fionn or someone else that will misuse the powers of the island?
Fionn is dealing with many issues, things from the past, present and future, and they all seem to be all coming to a head. This story rocks! Highly recommended!
Such a fun magical story! I hope this is the beginning of a series…
Happy Reading Friends!❤️
