Full spoiler-free review now on my blog

The main plotline takes place in the world of Kalaya. On the one hand, we have the normal people ruled by the Assembly who have turned their back on magic and blame the fact that the land is dying on the people who wield it. On the other hand, we have the exiled magic-wielders who found their refuge in the mountains and build a home there. They are led by a powerful figure called the Sentinel, but the current Sentinel is dying and there needs to be a n

----Spoiler Free Review----

The Lost Sentinel by Suzanne Rogerson is the first book in the Silent Sea Chronicles. It is told in the third person perspective from a full cast of characters, and takes places in the fictional world of Kalaya. The world is made up of mystics- those who have the ability to wield magic, and protectors- those who protect the magic users. However, the current sentinel is dying, and if the next sentinel is not found in time the magic of Kalaya will die too.

There were a n

The following review was originally posted on Another World

Would the mention of people being hoodwinked into acting against their own interests by an unscrupulous political leader, exploiting their ignorance and prejudice to persuade them to scapegoat a minority group for all their problems, cause you to think of real world events? It probably would; as would the plight of refugees; as would hardships brought about by environmental issues. In this respect, The Lost Sentinel (book 1 of a new f

This is the second book of Suzanne Rogerson’s that I have read so I felt that I had some sort of idea of her writing style but wow has she raised the bar. What makes it even more exciting is that this is the first book in a trilogy so I know it is going to be one hell of an epic journey for both the characters and readers alike.
I soon developed character envy after reading the opening chapter, Tei  even as a child, had the gift of leaving her body and wondering as a spirit on the astral plane, p

Characters
I felt like I had a good connection with the characters and I understood most of their thoughts and feelings. I would have liked a bit more depth with their development but I was still satisfied with what I knew about them.

Tei was clearly a confused young woman and I understood her troubles and fears. I was a little thrown by the development of her love interest but the rest of her character seemed quite believable.

There were lots of point of view changes and this sometimes interrupted

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

This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books.

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 ab

Fantasy lovers need to be celebrating right now because “The Lost Sentinel” is being released this week! You do not want to miss this first in a new series from Suzanne Rogerson. The story takes place on the island of Kalaya where the magic that sustains life on the island is dying. Tei and her father are forced to flee their home in the night because Tei has a magical gift. The Assembly is cracking down on those with magic in an attempt to completely rid the island of magic. Tei must flee to th ...more

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

‘The Lost Sentinel’ was a little different from the other fantasy books I have read, mainly because it involved pirates and this was my first read that involved them! Thank you Suzzanne for bringing me to the world of pirates! 😀

The story basically proceeds in three parts, one follows Tei and her search for the Lost Sentinel, the second follows Farell and the people of Stone Haven who just want a good life away from the hardships they have to endure day in and day out. Lastly there is Brogan, an

This book introduces you to Tei whose life takes a turn after an old friend of her father's warns them to leave their life behind.

With "The Lost Sentinel", Suzanne Rogerson presents us with several interwoven plot lines, one covering Tei and her companions, another getting closer to Brogan, and a third one is on Farrell. All plot lines are relevant, even if I admittedly had a ranking for them i.e. one that I could not get too warm with. The story is skilfully elaborated, comprises interesting tu

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

I would like to thank CreateSpace Publishing and the Netgalley website for this partnership.

I was immediately attracted to the cover and the summary.

The story takes place on the island of Kaya which is magical but she is dying. All those who use magic are exiled in the mountains.

Tei, a tailor's daughter, hides her magic but one day she is forced to flee to the mountains. But on the way her father is wounded to death, he will reveal things to her that she never thought she would discover one day

The Lost Sentinel is a character driven fantasy set in the beautiful land of Kalaya. Here the magic runs deep through the land, giving to the people and as they pass on, their magic is absorbed back into the land. The Sentinel guards the magic, holds it tight, protecting Kalaya and the people, but as times pass people begin to forget. People with magic are exiled, new people rule who begin pushing for magic to be banned. Things are going wrong on the astral pla

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 fascinati

This book was entertaining with good world building. While I enjoyed the characters, they could have been developed a bit deeper. The pacing of the narrative is a bit quick and I wanted to have more time to understand the characters. The frequent Point of View changes and scene breaks were a little distracting as well. So for me, the story flow could have been smoother.

Even with these pacing issues, the story is well-written, the characters believable, and the plot entertaining. The different c

Like a lot of people, I'm a little hesitant about reading indie writers, but I had none of that trepidation with this book. Roberson has created an exciting new world with characters i care about enough to want to read the next book (and any that follow)! My only criticism were the love matches, which all seemed to come out of nowhere, but afterwards did take a believable track. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read epic fantasy with characters you'll root

This was my second venture into a Suzanne Rogerson and I was not disappointed!

Suzanne has a wonderful way of bringing to life multidimensional characters and vibrant worlds that leap off the page. She weaves amazing plots that come together though threads are disparate at times. She truly has a grasp on the workings of fantasy and her prose brings that to life.

There's a great journey feel to the book, with a lot of characters travelling through the terrain that Suzanne brings strongly to life, w

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
