The Storm Keeper's Island

Illustration by Bill Bragg


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.

Book two in the Storm Keeper Quartet:

The Lost Tide Warriors



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.

'Doyle’s talent for creating windswept, stormy tension and physical threat sweeps all before it.' –  THE DAILY MAIL

'Sparkles with wit and wisdom ... The Lost Tide Warriors is an unputdownable adventure.'  –  ABI ELPHINSTONE

'Doyle tempers the story’s ancient magical thrust with an engaging everyday drama... Fionn’s relationship with his grandfather is surely one of the most tender inter-generational relationships to find a voice in children’s literature' –  THE IRISH TIMES

'A masterfully written, truly legendary adventure. The Lost Tide Warriors feels like a journey across the darkest, wildest and most beautiful seas.' 


'Gripping fantasy adventure which cleverly reignites Irish mythology for modern readers.' –  THE IRISH INDEPENDENT

'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.' –  LOUISE O'NEILL
