Waterstones Children's Book of the Month for July 2018

'The Storm Keeper's Island will blow you away ... A magical new voice in fantasy. Wise, warm and wonderful' - Eoin Colfer

When Fionn Boyle sets foot on Arranmore Island, it begins to stir beneath his feet ...

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 Fionn's grandfather, a secretive and eccentric old man, to step down.

Soon, a new Keeper will rise. But, deep underground, someone has been waiting for Fionn. As the battle to become the island's next champion rages, a more sinister magic is waking up, intent on rekindling an ancient war.
