Where the World Ends

Every summer Quill and his friends are put ashore on the remote Warrior sea stac to hunt birds. But this summer, no one comes to take them home. Has everyone died? Is the only boat battered against the dangerous rocks? Have they forgotten about the people on the stac?
Col Cane, the new self-appointed parson says different: He says ‘Nothing but the end of the world could mean this happening. God couldn’t see us huddled in caves on a lifeless stac. We are the only people left in the world……’
Most of the boys scoff him but could it be true? They have to find out, but surviving takes priority….
Where the world ends is based on a true story. The authors husband actually was a survivor of the stac and told her the entire story. Of course, the story is not all completely true, but you will find out about that soon enough.
Where the world ends is emotionally thunderous. It’s harshly beautiful and extraordinary and it’s unique and that’s why I like it. I would recommend it to any type of reader, especially to those have an interest in sea stacs and adventure stories. This book gripped me in a way that no other book could and it unlocked a new part of me, yearning to know more about the background of the story. Every good thing has to end.
