Waterstones Says

When her magical guardian disappears one night, the reclusive Biddy must embark on a dangerous mission to bring them back home in Parry's enthralling slice of fantasy fiction.

Off the coast of Ireland sits a legendary island hidden by magic. A place of ruins and ancient trees, sea-salt air and fairy lore, Hy-Brasil is the only home Biddy has ever known. Washed up on its shore as a baby, Biddy lives a quiet life with her guardian, the mercurial magician Rowan. A life she finds increasingly stifling.

One night, Rowan fails to return from his mysterious travels. To find him, Biddy must venture into the outside world for the first time. But Rowan has powerful enemies-forces who have hoarded the world's magic and have set their sights on the magician's many secrets.

Biddy may be the key to stopping them. Yet the closer she gets to answers, the more she questions everything she's ever believed about Rowan, her past, and the nature of magic itself.

“It was like a fairy tale written as though it really happened”

I didn't expect to love this as much as I did.

This was my first introduction to a story by H.G. Parry.
