The Storm Keeper's Island Reviews
I absolutely loved this book. It's full of adventure, mystery and magic. A true battle of good and evil. A great start to a new series. I can't wait for the next one.
A massive dollop of magic, mixed with a charming and quick witted main character. Throw in an incredible grandfather, an island that has its own history and power and a struggle with grief. You get this. A book with clout.
There better be a second one.
Totally magical - a brilliant read. Hints of Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising series as Fionn comes to terms with the magic and history of Arranmore island where his grandfather lives. Highly recommended.
I was so moved with the wonder and magic of the relationship that 11 yr old Fionn has with the Grandfather he has never met.
Having been sent to live on Arranmore, with his older teenage sister, Fionn misses his mother back in Dublin, even though she isn't always really there. Nearing the anniversary of the death of his father, his mother has had to go away to be made better.
The Island seems to speak to Fionn and what follows is a lot of information he thinks his sister surely should have told ...more
↠ Rating: 4/5 stars
I received an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Okay, okay. I know what you’re thinking: a middle-grade novel? Ellie, you don't read middle-grade.
WELL, I DO NOW.
But fine yes, I don’t often read middle-grade. So when I do, it is often something really great. And The Storm Keeper’s Island is very, very good. It was a nice break from the heavy-hitting ‘adult’ books I’ve been reading recently. Now, that isn’t to say The Storm Keeper's Island isn’t heavy-hitting, b ...more
The Storm Keeper’s Island is one of those books that just enchants you right from the get go. I could feel how alive the island was from those very first few pages and I could feel its magic creeping into me. I adored Fionn and his Grandpa and their relationship warmed my heart at times. Catherine Doyle’s writing is exquisite. I was totally captivated by her descriptions and a real sense of magic emanated from each and every page. This is a true adventure which is steeped in magic and mythology ...more
This was a very special read that I got completely lost in. It is a timeless story of adventure, magic, and wonder. It brought to my mind some of Enid Blyton’s rollicking adventures from my childhood. It perfectly balances the humour of two siblings bickering, with the sadness of a child missing an absent mother, a lost father, and a deteriorating grandfather. It captures beautifully the relationship between Fionn and his grandfather as it blossoms and grows, and Fionn’s sense of being adrift an ...more
The Stormkeeper's Island follows young Fionn as he travels to the island of Arranmore with his sister Tara to stay with their grandfather. Little does Fionn know just how magical and full of secrets the island of Arranmore is and most of all the dangers stirring within it...
This is a stunning, beautiful book and a great addition to the many MG titles already out there. Catherine's writing really draws you in and transports you to the island of Arranmore. I felt as if I were truly there, smellin ...more
