Synopsis (as taken from Amazon) is as follows:
Fionn Boyle has been Storm Keeper of Arranmore for less than six months when thousands of terrifying Soulstalkers arrive on the island. The empty-eyed followers of the dreaded sorceress Morrigan have come to raise their leader and Fionn is powerless to stop them. The Storm Keeper’s magic has deserted him and with his grandfather’s memory waning, Fionn must rely on his friends Shelby and Sam to help him summon Dagda’s army of merrows.
But nobody else believes the ferocious sea creatures even exist. And how can he prove he’s right without any magic? As Fionn begins his search for the lost army, the other islanders prepare for invasion. The battle to save Arranmore has begun.
Ability to Read – It was easy to read this, it was another book that I read in one sitting (at the hairdressers this time), and I was so excited to read the continuation of Fionn’s journey.
Characterisation – I was ecstatic to read more of Fionn and his job as a Storm Keeper and from the first page, Fionn jumped right into the action and I was so there for all that happened in this book. I enjoyed the sense of comrade between the characters and the ever present sense of family and responsibility.
Visualisation – It was easy to visualise this. I read the first book so long ago but everything came rushing back as soon as I began reading this sequel.
Enjoyment – Catherine Doyle has the magical ability to draw me into the world of wonderful magic and defined characters. For a short while I got transported to another world and was ready to read all that was nestled within the pages of the book.
Star Rating – ★★★★
