Can new alliances save the islands of the Silent Sea from the murderers stalking their shores?
As the island of Kalaya and its people recover from civil war, a new threat surfaces. Invaders from the island of Elkena hunt the seas, butchering those who possess magic. Their scar-faced captain seeks the Fire Mage who it has been foretold will kill him and Tei and her people are in his warpath.
Tei and a band of Kalayans travel to Stone Haven, the home of their new allies, planning to restore magic to the dead island. But the Stone Haven Council have abhorred magic since their people were massacred by Elkenan invaders twenty years before. Commander Farrell must persuade his people to accept magic again, but his plans expose them to their biggest fear and he risks leading Tei and her people into danger, and jeopardising the safety of both their islands.
Under Farrell’s guidance treaties are forged, but is the newly formed Silent Sea Alliance enough to defeat the invaders and stop their bloodthirsty quest to destroy magic forever?
The Sentinel’s Alliance is the final book in the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
What an epic journey this trilogy has been, such a huge pleasure to read all three books and just loved how it all came together in this final episode.
Suzanne Rogerson is a very visual writer with detailed descriptions of the islands and the changes that they have gone through. When I read a series I can’t help getting emotionally attached to the characters, this has been no exception. In this final book, the continual battle of magic uses and those against it escalates to breaking point.
Some of the storylines had run from the beginning of the series so there was plenty happening in this book. Commander Farrell is a major player, a puppeteer that pulls all the strings to get plans into action. He has secrets to reveal, alliances to make and his name to make good again. I just loved all the punch in the air moments that came with this tick list of kick-ass let’s get this done people attitude!
There are some terrific battle scenes, with massive shocks, and mouth dropping moments that I just hadn’t seen coming, all delivered with Rogerson perfection.
An absolutely stunning series, highly recommended.
THERE IS A LITTLE ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Suzanne lives in Middlesex 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.
