But the journey home does not go well and when Septimus and his friends are caught in a storm, Spit Fyre crashes into the Rokk Lighthouse. They are rescued by the lighthouse keeper who is disturbingly sinister, and who has an equally sinister cat ...And all the while, Septimus is trying to fight the strange pull he's feeling to the island and its mysterious secrets.
