A masterfully written, truly legendary adventure. THE LOST TIDE WARRIORS feels like a journey across the darkest, wildest and most beautiful seas.

"The Lost Tide Warriors" was an enchanting and heartbreaking sequel that made me even more emotional than "The Storm Keeper's Island".

Although there were times that I found Fionn frustrating, I would say that the character development and family dynamics were written better in this installment. Tara and Fionn's mom Evie was a wonderful addition to this series. She's stronger than I gave her credit for and I wish that we have more cool moms like her, especially in middle grade/young adult

A love letter to Irish folklore, filled with a deeply entrenched magical history that stretches beyond the pages of the book. The characters are so vividly real that I feel like I've known them forever.

I'm very grateful to Bloomsbury for granting me early access to this book. Deeply moving in parts, with fast-paced action throughout, lots of genuine chills, the same wondrous sense of place and magic as its predecessor, and some hilarious bits, The Lost Tide Warriors is a skilfully written and engaging story. I'm very much looking forward to Book 3!

A fabulous read with a great cast of characters, a gripping and entertaining plot and an amazing world building.
Strongly recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher and Edelweiss for this ARC, all opinions are mine

Absolutely fantastic sequel that builds on all the strengths of the first and adding its own. The emotional heart of the story is between grandfather and grandson and it made me cry in the best way - twice. Brilliant action, a realistic and well paced escalation that brings the series to another level!

The second in the series sees Fionn, along with friends and enemies old and new, battling against Soulseekers determined to revive Morrigan.

First of all, this isn't the book to start with. Although things are explained reasonably well as you go along, you'll still likely be confused for quite a portion of it.

However, if you've read the first one, this is a fantastic follow up, expanding the mythology and keeping the same wonderful tone. I cried - quite a bit - and read as fast as I can. I still

Honestly, not quite as good as book number one, in my opinion, but still a riveting read; one that I could not put down. A compelling storyline and all of our favourite characters. I can't wait to see what the next book will bring!

This is book 2 in the Storm Keeper series and I have been looking forward to it. This is a fantasy book about magic on an island. It was a very exciting read, which I couldn't put down (I read it in 2 nights).
Catherine Doyle has a great way of writing and the conversations and rivalry between the children are very convincing and realistic.

Now I can't wait for book 3 !

I recommend this to all readers of fantasy.

This felt a lot pacier than the first book, because Fionn (and the reader) know about the fight between Morrigan and Dagda, so there's less uncovering of the island's secrets. Instead, the stakes rise as the battle for the Island begins.

Great story - This sequel better than the first, which was also good. Thoroughly enjoyed it and looking forward to the next one.

This sequel to last year`s the Storm Keeper`s Island picks up about six months from where that left off, and it continues the plot from that- it sees main character Fionn navigate becoming Storm Keeper of Arranmore, which becomes even more complicated when evil sorceress Morrigan`s Soulstalker army invade the island and he has to come up with a solution. Fionn is such a lovable character- he`s a real underdog since everyone doubts his capability and I wanted nothing more than for him to succeed ...more

Tears rolling down my face for some of this gorgeous story - if you’re going to read it to children you MUST read it first - there are some difficult but beautifully dealt with themes of loss and grief.

A thrilling magical adventure. I adore the magic that Doyle has woven into the island. Just wonderful.

Beautiful and inspiring

For anyone young or old, with a thirst for beautifully crafted stories derived from ancient legends and with the wild Atlantic way in their blood. A story to share together and capture the imagination. Thank you Catherine Doyle.

Children’s books are for adults too and this series is a wonderful testament to that fact. After being enchanted by the first in the series last year, the next book has woven another magical spell thanks to lovely, lyrical writing, strong characters and some of the best action sequences I have ever read. Doyle’s pacing is excellent and you will do well not to shed a tear come the end of this.

Fionn barely has time to rest as just a few months after the adventures of book 1, boatloads of Soulstalkers start arriving at Arranmore again. However, he is still unable to reach the magic he can feel stirring inside himself. Without this how can he keep his island and it's people safe?

By accident, I read this before book 2, and was enamoured enough to read book 1 straight after. Excellent story, well written and thoroughly captivating. I have to admit that I was in tears at the end, and it deals with emotional issues as well as any book out there in this age group, possibly better. No spoilers here, but I think folk will love the magic that is woven across time and space and lives. This, more than book 1, brings to the table a far greater feeling for the island and those on ...more

Hmm not as good as the first one. Somehow I didn’t enjoy it as much. I think it’s because the characters didn’t get to catch a break and reflect the things that are happening. Also it was quite dark.
I’m a bit disappointed.

Beautifully written!!! The ending was so emotional, I cried like a baby. Can't wait to find out what happens next. I've recommended the first book to so many children at my school and they have all come back to me and said they loved it. I will most definitely be recommending this too!!! Well done, Catherine Doyle. I don't normally review books on this site but I havent fallen in love with a children's series in such a long time, probably since the Harry Potter series and my all time favourite ...more

Dan: This is the follow up to the excellent 'The Storm Keeper's Island' and certainly doesn't disappoint. It's full of the same wild magic and rising darkness, and we continue to learn more about Fionn and his character development. The writing sparkles and fizzes with energy throughout and I'm very much looking forward to the final two installments of the quartet!
