The Lost Sentinel Book Information
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. 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.
Tei joins the exiles’ search for the new Sentinel – 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 to succeed, but is Tei willing to risk everything to save the island magic?
Follow Tei’s journey through the magical land of Kalaya and the Astral Plane in The Lost Sentinel – Book 1 in the Silent Sea Chronicles.
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 book.
**I received a copy of The Lost Sentinel from Storytellers on Tour, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.**
The Lost Sentinel pulled me in right from the start! This story indeed has equal parts action and adventure. Tei and her companions escape from persecution and ignorance in order to save Kalaya’s soul. They fight to restore the magic once plentiful in their island, now fighting a disease of neglect.
Characters and Setting
Kalaya’s world building is captivating. Its landscapes and mythology instantly pulled me in! Additionally, you knew that you were transported to a special place that needed saving! Equally important are Rogerson’s characters. Tel and her companions were both likable and engaging. While I wished I learned more about Tei’s new ‘found family’, I’m also intrigued to find out in Book 2!
The Lost Sentinel’s Quest Trope
Suzanne Rogerson beautifully writes about Tei’s quest that both she and her companions embark on. Kalaya is certainly under attack by ignorance, so Tei and her friends embark on a wild journey. They are on a mission to save their world and stop dark influences. It kept me reading to the end!
The Lost Sentinel: In Conclusion
In conclusion, I recommend The Lost Sentinel for those seeking action packed fantasy! It’s a great start to the Silent Sea Chronicles. I look forward to learning more about Tei and her friends in the future!
