Product description

About the Author

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 she likes to escape with a great film, or soak in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a book.

Wow, after reading this book I am emotionally drained…but in a good way. ‘The Lost Sentinel’ is the first book in the ‘Silent Sea Chronicles’ fantasy series and is an amazing read!

The book starts by introducing us to a young Tei who has the ability to walk the Astral Plane but has a terrifying experience while there. Nine years later and Tei’s life is shattered when she and her father have to flee their home in order to be safe. At first the story was easy to get into. The action surrounding Tei running away and what happens when meeting with Rike and Garrick was exciting to read and I really got into this book right away but as the tale progresses we are introduced to more characters and more viewpoints and the story becomes more complex and interesting.

The book is written in the third person but jumps about between several different characters throughout the story. Although this was hard to grasp at first, it felt like a movie. Everyone’s tales are different with most stories happening on the island of Kalaya, but not all. Each story seems unconnected to anyone else’s at first, but as the plot progresses the connections are revealed and each story is an exciting one on its own.

The plot is really dark. There’s an undertone of darkness and fear already, with what Tei experienced as a child and the overall fear of being caught, but the whole book really has a dark edge with a lot of death including some key characters which leaves you shocked and upset and maybe even crying…I actually had to take a breather when reading these moments as it was so unexpected. But these deaths soon make sense to the plot and I am amazed at how unpredictable and good this book is to read.

I will admit that after Visions of Zarua I had set the bar exceptionally high for Suzanne Rogerson, probably unreasonably high for any author to have to live up to and I’m just glad that as bloggers we don’t tell authors about these invisible bars we sometimes set because I may have given the poor author a heart attack with this one. But not only did Suzanne Rogerson meet my expectations with The Lost Sentinel she surpassed them. Let’s talk about it a while…

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.

The magical island of Kalaya is dying, along with its guardian, the Sentinel. This is caused by the ruling Assembly with their determination to rid Kalaya of magic and the people who practice it, thereby giving them total control of the island and its inhabitants. The people go along with this, for they are starving and believe that magic is the cause.
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.

THE LOST SENTINEL contains plenty of action, intrigue, and challenges throughout, making this a thrilling fantasy adventure indeed. It’s the sort of book I enjoyed reading while reclining in a comfy chair on the sunny front porch of my house. It didn’t overwhelm me with information, itty bitty details, or dull monologues, but rather it whisked me away to someplace magical, alluring, and dangerous.

Kalaya, the mystics, the whole realm of this book was pretty fascinating. I do think that this book was written with a good grasp on the story and world-building, which was fantastic. Is this book perfect? Perhaps not quite, but I did very much enjoy it and am so grateful for being given a chance to read it and review it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Fantasy at it's best 17 Jun. 2017
By BrizzleLass - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I will admit that after Visions of Zarua I had set the bar exceptionally high for Suzanne Rogerson, probably unreasonably high for any author to have to live up to and I’m just glad that as bloggers we don’t tell authors about these invisible bars we sometimes set because I may have given the poor author a heart attack with this one.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid 3.5 star high fantasy read 17 Jun. 2017
By Sissy Lu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A solid 3.5 savvy crowns.

This book grabbed my attention, to begin with. A fantasy novel that revolves around an astral realm, the heroine is somehow connected to it and holds great importance. I smelled a quest! To which I shouted, yes, yes, yes!

Initially, I was so intrigued by the idea of this, Tei was a likable character and drew me into the story, but soon into the story more than a few characters were dropped in and I found the stories began to branch off. For me, this caused issues because I lost sight of the main story and at some points, I found myself a little frustrated because I wasn't trying to remember what the premise is about. When it came around full circle back to the main story I enjoyed it, but the distraction of the supporting roles was just - well it was distracting.

The characters in a whole I felt needed more development, there were often unexplainable shifts in the character, they suddenly felt this way without any development that is seen. I like to read these developments and not just be told that it has happened.

If you're not easily distracted as a reader then I don't think you'd have the aforementioned problem like I did. Each character/side story is an interesting one, to be sure, that adds up to the main story. Each character is relevant, each character achieves something, but for me, it was just an overload.

As far as the world and mechanics of said world, it is explained and created wonderfully, without heavy info drops.

This is my second read by Rogerson and again, as before, I do applaud her work.

So if you're into high fantasy, definitely consider this read.
