The Lost Sentinel

The magical island of Kalaya is dying, along with its Sentinel.

The Assembly controls Kalaya. Originally set up to govern, they now persecute those with magic and exile them to the Turrak Mountains.

Tei, a tailor’s daughter, has always hidden her magic but when her father’s old friend visits and warns them to flee to the mountains she must leave her old life behind.
On the journey, an attack leaves her father mortally wounded. He entrusts her into the care of the exiles and on his deathbed makes a shocking confession.
Struggling with self doubt, Tei joins the exiles search for the new Sentinel who is the only person capable of restoring the fading magic. But mysterious Masked Riders are hunting the Sentinel too, and time, as well as hope, is running out.

Against mounting odds it will take friendship, heartache and sacrifice for the exiles to succeed in their quest, but is Tei willing to risk everything to save the island magic?

Once you start this book you realise that you are going on a magical adventure. Meeting Tei straightaway, you follow her as she realises that her life is going to change. As the story continues you meet Brogan and Farrell, whilst there is no connection between them, they share Kalaya in common. Written in 3rd person POV, enables you to follow each of their story without being confused and I got drawn into a story that gave me excitement and heartbreak.

I liked Tei, Brogan and Farrell straightaway, they all had a caring nature to them and whilst each of them had to make some difficult decisions, you could see that they did not take their missons lightly. With the main characters there are some great secondary characters and if you are like me you will have your favourites. One of my favourites was Beliss a sweet young girl and I hope she has a part to play in the further stories.    

Whilst the pace starts of slowly, you are introduced to the main players, their politics and the way of the land, this enable you to be fully invested in the story. As each of their quest get more intense, I found myself reading quicker to find out the outcome. The description of Kalaya and the surrounding mountains had me imagining what a beautiful land it was.

I am going to read the others in this series and carry on the adventure. If you love fantasy and quest than pick up this series.    

 For the duration of the blog tour all books in the Silent Sea Chronicles series are 99p.

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.
