The Storm Keeper's Island
This book was recommended to me by a child who told me that I would enjoy it and they weren't wrong. With strong characters and some twists and turns along the way I felt that I was on the island at times.
Full of mystery and magic.
So very great, I’m now going to read the other 2 books in the series!!!
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 secret and eccentric ol 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.
Amazing book. Gripped from early on and read it in about two days. The storyline, setting and characters were well written. I'm not always big on magic and fantasy books but this had just the right amount for me. Looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.
I enjoyed this. I liked Shelby in the way that she was able to be with both families. I would recommend it. I’m realising that I keep buying wrong for my class, not sure many would manage this just now.
A good book for people who like adventure. The tale of a boy called Fionn, who goes to a mysterious island to live with his grandad. He sees things and does things that most people are unable to do. Will the war restart while Fionn's grandfather is a storm keeper, or someone else?
I loved this book.
I loved this book!
My favourite person was Fionn Boyle, if I was in the story I would be Fionn.
I would recommend this book to everyone.
I thought that this book was really adventurous and intriguing because it had some really exciting stuff in there!! My favourite person was Fionn because he was really helpful towards his grandfather and he did save his sister’s life!! I would definitely recommend!!
This book is amazing because Fionn is the youngest storm keeper in the end!
I love how the candles can hold magic and how the island of Arranmore has so many layers and holds so many memories.
magical adventurous book
loved this book
it is spooky
I thought the book was great if you like magic and adventures this book is for you, this is interesting because it has lot's of twists and turns.
This book was partly about Irish folklore, which is unusual and interesting. The main character had certain negative personalities - such as being a coward often, and having a fear of the sea - but this didn’t make him frustrating or annoying to read about. My favourite character was the main character, Fionn Boyle’s, grandfather. I give this book 4 stars for its humor and adventure.
Beautiful descriptions and I can’t wait to read about the ancient war and the battle scenes in the next books!
I loved this book so much. It was exciting and the story was so imaginative. Unlike anything I had read before. I would recommend it for boys or girls age 10 plus but really anybody capable of reading!! Even though it was fantasy, which is not my preferred genre, the characters problems and teenage drama gave the story a rea sense of a new reality.
This is number 1 of a trilogy. You have to concentrate as this book zips along.
Fionn hasn't set foot on the island for some time and really doesn't believe all that rubbish about magic and saving the world, until...
You need to read this series.
I thought this book was ok but it wasn’t my taste because it has lots of sinking boats and threatening deaths in it. I would recommend this book to people that like peril.
A wonderful start to a trilogy where we follow the protagonist on his journey as he discovers his role as the new storm keeper. I enjoyed the budding relationship between Fionn and his grandfather and how they face challenges together. The magic, sorcery and the battles keeps the reader on edge.
Fionn and his sister Tara have to spend the summer on the island of Arranmore with their mysterious grandpa, their mother is unwell. As Tara goes off with her boyfriend Bartley Beasley, to search for a magic cave, Fionn learns more about the past of the island, his family and magic. His grandpa makes candles that take people back to different layers, even to the mythological Dagda fighting the evil Morrigan, who now lies beneath the island. Fionn is entwined with things that have gone before. He also finds more about his father who died before he was born. I would recommend this to people in upper KS2 or KS3, who like family stories, adventure and magic.
I enjoyed this book, my favourite character was Tara.
This book is one of my favourites as it has a interesting idea. I liked that the story shows there could be mre to a person then meets the eye and that not everything is as boring as it looks.
It was so magicial in all the best ways and grips you to your seat wanting to read on.
Thrills and excitement, laughs and magic. I never wanted to put this book down.
An exciting action story.
It was an exciting, thrilling book. I recommend it!

Filled with fantasy and adventure, I loved it! Huge twists and you will never want to let go.
It was a little heartbreaking but it was nice.
