This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.
The Lost Sentinel by Suzanne Rogerson is first installment in the Silent Sea Chronicles.
A high fantasy novel with stunning world building along with magic, romance, and an epic quest.
Tei, is a headstrong tailor’s daughter, living it a somewhat normal life, except she has a secret.Along with her father, they are both hiding their magic abilities. Magic is feared by all those living on the island of Kalaya. When her powers are discovered they are forced flee in the night. They Flee into the mountains when tragedy strikes, and Tei, is revealed some important information.
Seamless narration is engaging, which is told in multiple POV’s. This allows the reader insightful information seen through the eyes of the characters as the story unfolds. The magic system will surprise you, as magic it self is tied to an astral plane.
Something I have only encountered once before. I look forward to reading more about in the books that follow. There is intrigue, and angst suspense that goes along with the faced paced challenges that character are subjected too.
Overall The Lost Sentinel is a fascinating page turner, with appealing originality.
Suzanne lives in Middlesex, England with her husband, two children and a crazy puppy. Her writing journey began at the age of twelve when she completed her first novel. She discovered the fantasy genre in her late teens and has never looked back. Giving up work to raise a family gave Suzanne 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.
Now an author of four novels including the recently completed Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy and a Czech translation of her debut, Visions of Zarua, Suzanne hopes the dreaded ‘W’ word will never rear its ugly head again!
She loves gardening and has a Hebe (shrub) fetish. She enjoys cooking with ingredients from the garden and regularly feeds unsuspecting guests vegetable-based cakes.
Suzanne collects books, is interested in history and enjoys wandering around castles and old ruins whilst being immersed in the past. She likes to combine her love of nature and photography on family walks, but most of all she loves to escape with a great film, binge watch TV shows, or soak in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a good book
