Book Review, Middle Grade Fiction

The Lost Girl King ~ Catherine Doyle

Catherine Doyle is back with another heart-pounding fantasy middle grade adventure. If you loved The Storm Keeper Trilogy, then don’t miss this magical tale.

Sister and brother, Amy and Liam, are visiting their grandmother in Connemara on the west coast of Ireland. Far from home, friends and their usual entertainment, they only have each other and their grandmother’s book of fairy tales to keep them busy. Gran has always told them about the magical land of Tír na nÓg – the land of eternal youth. Liam has no time for childishness but Amy wonders if there might be a kernal of truth in these amazing stories.

When out exploring, the children find their way through a waterfall into a strange world. But there’s little time to discover where they are as Liam is captured by an angry gang of headless horsemen and taken prisoner by Tarlock, the ruling sorcerer of Tír na nÓg. Amy is forced to summon all of her courage and cunning to outsmart this evil magician, save her brother and get them both home again.

Packed full of action, peril, puzzles and breath-taking surprises, this enchanting story will have children begging for “just one more chapter” whether sharing it as a class read or snuggling under the covers at bedtime.

Thank you to Bloomsbury Children’s Books & NetGalleyUK for an early copy of this exciting book! It will be published on the 1st September 2022.
