The Book of Storms (Excerpt)

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 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 and battle terrifyingly powerful enemies, including the demonic Sammael himself.

In the beautifully imagined landscape of Ruth Hatfield’s The Book of Storms, magic seamlessly intertwines with the everyday, nothing is black and white, and Danny is in a race against time to rescue everything he holds dear. The Book of Storms is available January 27th from Henry Holt Books for Young Readers!
