Description


Eleven-year-old Danny O'Neill has never been what you'd call adventurous. But when he wakes the morning after a storm to find his house empty, his parents gone, and himself able to hear the thoughts of a dying tree, he has no choice but to set out on a quest to find answers. He soon learns that the enigmatic Book of Storms holds the key to what he seeks . . . but unraveling its mysteries won't be easy. If he wants to find his family, he'll have to face his worst fears, battle terrifyingly powerful enemies, and confront a shadowy and demonic figure: Sammael.
This powerfully written debut reveals a world where magic seamlessly intertwines with the everyday and nothing is black and white. For Danny, the only certain thing is that time is running out . . . and he must hurry if he wants to rescue everything he holds dear.

Praise For…


“The gripping pace and complex moral musings pair with a setting that is so vividly described that it becomes a character itself. Readers will eagerly anticipate the next volume in this anticipated trilogy.” —BCCB

“The extraordinary comes out from hiding behind the ordinary in Hatfield's debut novel . . . This fanciful book brings new awareness of the natural world.” —VOYA

“*Confident storytelling lays a solid foundation for Book 1 of this original middle-grade fantasy trilogy . . . A powerfully conceived and executed story that adds a wholly original element to the fantasy genre.” —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW


“* Hatfield doesn’t shy from depicting violent deaths or the occasional bit of gore, but the story is never gratuitous—the frights are just enough to keep readers’ hearts racing as they read late into the night.” —Publishers Weekly
