The Sentinel’s Alliance

As the island of Kalaya and its people recover from civil war, a new threat surfaces. Invaders from the island of Elkena hunt the seas, butchering those who possess magic. Their scar-faced captain seeks the Fire Mage who it has been foretold will kill him and Tei and her people are in his warpath.

Tei and a band of Kalayans travel to Stone Haven, the home of their new allies, planning to restore magic to the dead island. But the Stone Haven Council have abhorred magic since their people were massacred by Elkenan invaders twenty years before. Commander Farrell must persuade his people to accept magic again, but his plans expose them to their biggest fear and he risks leading Tei and her people into danger, and jeopardising the safety of both their islands.

Under Farrell’s guidance treaties are forged, but is the newly formed Silent Sea Alliance enough to defeat the invaders and stop their bloodthirsty quest to destroy magic forever?

Now Rathnor is gone, the island of Kalaya is slowly healing. Commander Farrell is going home back to Stone Haven, but unbeknown to them all, a new threat is waiting for them on the seas.

I have been eagerly waiting for this book, having read the first two in the series, I was really invested in the lives of the residents of Kalaya and Stone Haven and it was good to get back to them, to find out how everyone’s lives had changed after the battle.

Whilst Tei and Brogan still had major roles to play, the majority of the story was centered round Commander Farrell and his conviction to improve the lives of the Stone Haven residents. As the story takes you to Stone Haven, you learn more about the struggles that they have had to overcome and you understand why Farrell is so passionate about his cause. However, he is not the only one who wants to change things for the better and you can see what dilemmas Callisa has to overcome without putting the lives of others at risk and there were times that I felt sorry for her as whilst everyone loved her, she was lonely.

As more and more characters are introduced, we get to learn more about their lives and I enjoyed finding out more about Nadan and how Rathnor ruined his life.

This story was a steadier pace than the Sentinel’s Reign as we follow Farrell, Tei and Brogan as they try and form a union with all the islands. However, whilst I was reading it, I felt there was something brewing in the background ready to upset the unity and how right I was. Captain Jaconn had an unhealthy fixation with the mysterious Fire mage, in the same way as Captain Ahab had with Moby Dick. He was an evil man who wanted to eradicate magic.

As I was reading this story, I thought I knew where this story was going, but there were a few surprises that I did not see coming and I did spend time just sitting in amazement at what I had just read.

This series has been a great read and I have enjoyed watching all the characters grow and adapt to whatever was thrown at them. Whilst at the moment, this is the final book in the series, I was pleased to read the author’s notes at the back of the book and I would love to read more about the Silent Seas and to learn more about some of the characters.

Author Bio –

Suzanne lives in Middlesex, England with her hugely encouraging husband and two children.

She wrote her first novel at the age of twelve. She discovered the fantasy genre in her late teens and has never looked back. Giving up work to raise a family gave her the impetus to take her attempts at novel writing beyond the first draft, and she is lucky enough to have a husband who supports her dream – even if he does occasionally hint that she might think about getting a proper job one day.

Suzanne loves gardening and has a Hebe (shrub) fetish. She enjoys cooking with ingredients from the garden, and regularly feeds unsuspecting guests vegetable-based cakes.

She collects books, loves going for walks and picnics with the children and sharing with them her love of nature and photography.

Suzanne is interested in history and enjoys wandering around castles. But most of all she likes to escape with a great film, or soak in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a book.
