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. The Storm Keeper's Island was her debut middle-grade novel, inspired by her real-life ancestral home of Arranmore Island, for which she won the Books Are My Bag Readers Award and the IBW Children's Book Award. Catherine lives in Galway.
A truly epic finale to one of the best trilogies of recent years, Doyle has once again suffused this telling with her trademark humour and magic. I read Fionn's tale with my heart in my mouth * Kiran Millwood-Hargrave * I read The Storm Keepers' Battle with tears in my eyes and my heart beating a little faster than usual ... It is an absolute triumph - it's exciting, vivid, and gripping while still retaining all of Catherine Doyle's trademark humour and heart. What a fitting end to an incredible trilogy! * Louise O'Neill * Wild and wonderful storytelling * Abi Elphinstone * WHAT an ending to an amazing trilogy - the stakes just build and build. Irish folk mythology, heartfelt magic and suuuch good jokes - if you like your action-adventure bursting at the seams with imagination and heartfelt humour, you couldn't do better * Ross Montgomery * Doyle's writing glows, with the pitch-perfect barbs the young people sling at each other, the atmospheric weather events, her masterfully delineated characters - including the island itself - and a page-turning plot. Heart-wrenching and heart-stopping, this is one gorgeous novel * New York Times on THE STORM KEEPER'S ISLAND * Doyle's talent for creating windswept, stormy tension and physical threat sweeps all before it. This is one for a seaside holiday, whatever the weather * Daily Mail on THE LOST TIDE WARRIORS * Magical in every way * Eoin Colfer on THE STORM KEEPER'S ISLAND * It's a dark and menacing path to the end of the book and one that will most definitely have you utterly hanging on every word... Storm Keepers' Battle is a wonderfully dramatic final installment * K and O: Bonkers About Books *
