Description - The Storm Keeper's Island by Catherine Doyle
'Funny, dark and blazingly beautiful ... A thrillingly inventive adventure' Kiran Millwood Hargrave
When Fionn Boyle sets foot on Arranmore Island, it begins to stir beneath his feet.
Once in a generation, the island chooses a new Storm Keeper - someone to wield its power and keep its magic safe from enemies. The time has finally come for Fionn's grandfather, a secretive and eccentric old man, to step down. Soon, a new Keeper will rise.
Fionn's ancestral home has been waiting for him. But deep underground, someone else has been waiting, too. As a battle rages, over who will become the island's next champion, a more sinister magic is waking up, intent on rekindling an ancient war.

Author Biography - Catherine Doyle
Catherine Doyle grew up beside the Atlantic Ocean in the west of Ireland. Her love of reading began with great Irish myths and legends, and fostered in her an ambition to one day write her own. She holds a first class BA in Psychology and a first class MA in Publishing from the National University of Ireland, Galway, and is the author of the YA Blood for Blood trilogy. The Storm Keeper's Island is her debut middle-grade novel and was inspired by her real-life ancestral home of Arranmore Island, where her grandparents grew up, and the adventures of her many seafaring ancestors. After living in Dublin City for two years, Catherine is now based in Galway but spends a lot of her time in London and the US.
