    This follow-up to the acclaimed Storm Keeper's Island (2019) sees Fionn, Arranmore Island's new protector, preparing to stop an invading horde of undead acolytes from waking the ancient evil sorceress, Morrigan. As he and his friends search for a lost, magical seashell that will summon their own army of vicious mer-creatures, he must overcome self-doubt and skeptical islanders in order to come into his full power. Doyle's sophomore novel returns to its rich setting, rooted in Irish lore, so readers will need to be familiar with book one—and prepared to wait for book three, as this episode mostly functions as a plot bridge, positioning pieces for the inevitable endgame between Fionn and Morrigan. While a handful of new characters enter the fray, little is added in terms of world building, with the focus instead on developing the established cast. Existing fans will nonetheless thrill in returning to the evocative Arranmore and continuing Fionn's emotionally vibrant and always humorous adventure. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

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 where her grandparents grew up, and the adventures of her many seafaring relatives. Catherine lives in Galway.
