'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' The Daily Mail In the brilliant sequel to The Storm Keeper's Island, winner of the Books are My Bag Readers Award, Fionn Boyle finds himself at the heart of the fight for the island's survival.

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.

Reviews for The Lost Tide Warriors (#2 Storm Keeper Quartet)

The Lost Tide Warriors is, if you can believe it, even better than its wonderful predecessor. It's laugh out loud funny and heart-breaking in equal measure, with stakes so high that you can barely catch your breath until you turn the last page. This book is one to treasure and it marks Catherine Doyle as a breakout star in middle grade fiction * Louise O'Neill, author of The Surface Breaks * Sparkles with wit and wisdom ... The Lost Tide Warriors is an unputdownable adventure * Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink and Stars * A masterfully written, truly legendary adventure. The Lost Tide Warriors feels like a journey across the darkest, wildest and most beautiful seas * Sophie Anderson, author of The House With Chicken Legs * Exceptional ... It kept me on the edge of my seat, had me laughing out loud and made me weep. Beautifully written, emotionally compelling and tremendously exciting, it cements Catherine Doyle as one of the strongest children's authors writing today * Katherine Webber, author of Wing Jones * Magical in every way * Eoin Colfer on THE STORM KEEPER'S ISLAND * Acutely observed sibling dynamics, a house full of magical candles, and a vivid sense of history interwoven with Irish legend make for a standout novel * Guardian on THE STORM KEEPER'S ISLAND * So magical and wild that it's like being swept away by the sea * Katherine Rundell on THE STORM KEEPER'S ISLAND * The book of the season (if not the year) has to be this beautifully written fantasy adventure. The perfect summer holiday escape, don't miss it! * Irish Independent on THE STORM KEEPER'S ISLAND * A gem ... This is a book that should have any child glued to their deckchair * Daily Telegraph on THE STORM KEEPER'S ISLAND *
