Storm Witch, Paperback / softback Book

Storm Witch Paperback / softback

Part of the Storm Witch series

Paperback / softback


Child of Air, Water, Earth or Fire: now that she is thirteen Storm must undertake The Choosing and be claimed by one of the Elementals, which will determine her whole life's work.

But for Storm, daughter of a father murdered by Water and a warrior mother claimed by Earth, there will be no easy destiny. The Elementals bestow her with a great and terrible gift.

Storm-bringer. Storm-rider. Storm-queller. Storm has powers that no one, not even the island Elders, can understand. And when the Drowned Ones - a savage band of pirates who roam the seas on floating towns - attack her island, will her powers help her to save the people she loves, or is her fate to betray everything she holds dear?

Soon Storm faces a decision that will change her life - and that of everyone who lives on her island - forever. A powerful new fantasy series from Ellen Renner, prize-winning author of Tribute and Castle of Shadows. "Familiar themes are invigorated in this assured novel; its ethical conundrums, deft characterisation and sense of magic are reminiscent of Ursula K Le Guin's Earthsea series." - Guardian, Books of the Month"A whirlwind adventure which will sweep you into its enchanted world.

At its epicentre is a strong heroine in a coming of age quest that will leave you breathless." - South Wales Evening Post, Children's Book of the Week"This is a strong story that had me gripped in an instant and has left me wanting for more with each and every chapter.

So I can't wait for the next book" - The Reader Teacher (blog)"A strong start to the series which establishes the world and character and sets out Storm's dilemma.

This will doubtless be a hit and I look forward to finding out how the story continues." - Book Murmuration (blog)
