Fionn and his older sister, Tara, are going to stay with their grandfather on the Irish island of Arranmore. He’s not thrilled to be leaving his mom, but since she is off somewhere being depressed, he has no choice. It doesn’t matter that Tara says the island is magical. She just thinks that, because she met a boy there last summer. It seems like the least Grandad could do is meet them at the ferry, but apparently Grandad’s manners don’t extend to greeting his only two grandchildren when they get off the boat. Oddly, when Fionn steps onto the island for the first time, it is as if a voice of the island itself is beckoning him. Maybe there IS something to what Tara says. Little does Fionn know that he is soon to embark on an adventure involving destiny, deception, competition, family, magic, stormy weather and…candles.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. I read it aloud to my 5th grade daughter and she loved it just as much. Can’t wait for the sequel, The Lost Tide Warriors.

"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." NY Times book review.
