REVIEW: The Storm Keeper's Island

"As long as there is someone to remember you, you are never truly gone, and neither is your story."


I mostly read middle-grade children's for the magic, there's nothing like it in adult novels! And that's why I loved books like Nevermoor and The Girl of Ink and Stars. But for some reason, The Storm Keeper's Island fell a little flat for me.

I try not to be too harsh with my reviews of this age range because I'm not the target audience so I may not be the right person to criticise, and I did enjoy it somewhat so it still gets three stars. But what I felt lacked the most in this novel was the world building. I couldn't quite latch on to a vision of the island in my head, so I struggled to see the adventure unfold.

Also, a big bugbear of mine is when a book makes it obvious there's going to be a sequel. I felt like I'd been given half of a book because it ended quite abruptly. Aside from that, the magic was there and I really loved the concept of the story. I'm sure it would still make for a great read for kids that age.
