Kalaya is a magical island, beautiful and filled with mystic’s who have varying degrees of magical power. But the island is dying, as is the leader of the mystics the Sentinel. When Tei escapes to Turrak to join the mystic exiles she discovers she is responsible for finding the next Sentinel before time runs out.
Surrounded by some wonderful characters who get under your skin almost from the start Tei sets out on a harrowing journey which is heartwarming, moving, and terrifying all at once.
I was deeply moved by Garrick one of the protector’s, humans who are responsible for protecting the mystics, he is deeply in love with Tei but this isn’t what was attractive about him, it was his humour and inner and outer strength. Of all the sub-characters he was the one I looked forward to seeing on the page the most.
The world building throughout this novel is exquisite, I felt like I could live and breath Kalaya, and while at sea with Farrell and the Stone Haven traders I felt consumed by the ship and the life of these sailors. I didn’t once feel uncertain or confused about what was happening, where, or why.
All of the characters good, evil, or indifferent have deep backgrounds, and something about them that makes them appealing on the page and makes you want to keep reading digging deeper into their story and how they fit into the bigger picture. There is a huge cast of characters in this book and by the end we don’t get the answers to every question because of this being part one of a series but there is a definite sense of direction.
I Also like that Suzanne Rogerson is a fantasy writer who isn’t afraid of killing important characters. We lose characters in this novel that you would absolutely consider vital to the story. I reached a point where I couldn’t see the page through my tears, now as hard as it is to read that it’s also really important to lose those characters sometimes to make way for the story to progress and I applaud Suzanne for having the bravery to let that happen.
Overall, this story bowled me over, it was an absolutely outstanding epic fantasy and the kind of writing fantasy authors should be aspiring to. The only negative I have is that I’m dreading the wait for book two.
Sending a huge thanks to Suzanne Rogerson for the eARC so that I could read and honestly review this novel.
As the people turn their backs on magic and the people who use it, Tia is forced to flee to the Turrak mountains with her father to join the other exiled inhabitants. Shades of Game of Thrones here, as the leaders of Kalaya battle to be victorious against the Exiles.
I began to despair of Tia’s future, convinced that she was the lost sentinel. This was enforced by the conversations she has with the dying sentinel. But when the dying Sentinel declares Tia as the ‘confidante’ to the next Sentinel, I hoped he was wrong.
I knew this book to be the first in a series but was unprepared for such a cliff-hanger at the end. The people of Kalaya had a new sentinel, but it wasn’t Tei after all. Their new world was a mess with more disasters looming.
There are several villains in this story, and I was hard pushed to say who was the worst. I have the feeling it will turn out to be Rathnor, as his motives are the strongest.
Although I was a little disappointed there wasn’t a little more magic in this story, it was a frustrating and exciting beginning to what promises to be an extraordinary series.
