A tale of two halves- twins and a fairy land divided from England. Two stories intertwined as you read, one building towards the future and the other filling in the gaps of the past.
Utterly beguiling, this adventure does ‘t pause for breathe, it leads you on twisting and dangerous paths along which lay secrets, curses and magic.
Storm Girl, Tempest, remembers nothing of her past but feels love and devotion from Prosper and Marino, her ferry keeper fathers! They saved her in many ways and have offered to become her proper parents. Before she can say yes, the world she hails from conspires to lead her away.
Wild Boy lives in the forest and can transform into creatures, his favourite being a wolf. When he is captured, Storm Girl is taken as well and it is this meeting point where similarities and discoveries are made.
Kwesi is their new friend and it is their combined friendship that gives each the strength and confidence to face their enemies, their fears and their futures.
An incredible story that keeps you reading, certain of one path and discovering a different one. Written with such brilliance, you will immediately find yourself lost in Kensington Palace with Lord and Lady Hawthorn weaving their dark magic over the royals and the rest of the palace.
I love the ending and the sense of wonder, strength and certainty this group of friends show!
