Once there was an island,
And that island there lived a boy...

Demairo’s life is far from easy. Living on an isolated island with a father who hates him and a mother he adores, things are difficult enough without the whispering voices that cry on the wind. Because this is no ordinary island.

Luckily Demairo is no ordinary child, and he has some unusual friends to support him.

Demairo's life is not a happy one, stuck as he is on an accursed island with an abusive father. And as time goes on, everyone just seems to get worse and worse.

Becca is an indie fantasy author from the wild British Westcountry who learned
how to fly a bird of prey, gallop bareback and survive as the youngest in a big family all
before she was a teenager.

Sadly, the years since haven’t been anything like as exciting.

Nowadays she saves her adventures for writing, her weekends for walking and her days
for dreaming.
