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.
