The award-winning author of The Storm Keeper's Island series brings us yet another fantastic magical adventure, full of strong characters, difficult moral choices and challenging quests. With a satisfying amount of piratical swashbuckling, pirate kings, treachery and sea monsters, it also addresses more serious questions about sibling rivalry, loyalty, responsibility, the impact of illness on a family and the nature of attachment and affection. Pirate King, Captain O Malley, needs help to save the secret kingdom of Darksea, which is being terrorised by a fearsome monster intent on its destruction.

On the opposite side of the horizon, in our world, Max is fighting his own monsters. His big brother Christopher is seriously ill and needs a miracle to save him. Squawk, an outrageously funny parrot with serious attitude, appears one night and recruits Max to save Darksea in return for the promise of the miracle that Max needs for Christoper.

The writing is absolutely immersive, with descriptions so vivid you can picture exactly where the adventure takes place. The author’s real strength however is characterisation, the memorable characters reveal both their strengths and their flaws which ensures the reader cares about the dangers and predicaments in which they find themselves. A fantastic page-turning, compulsive and highly enjoyable read.
