THE FIRST OF THREE VISITS TO ANOTHER WORLD
YOUR INTRODUCTION TO BOOK ONE OF A BRAND NEW SELF-PUBLISHED FANTASY TRILOGY FROM AN UP-AND-COMING INDIE AUTHOR
Greetings readers. The end of this week will see the publication of The Lost Sentinel, book one of the Silent Sea Chronicles, the second novel by indie author, Suzanne Rogerson. When Suzanne issued her call for book bloggers to help with the promotion of her latest release, I jumped at the chance; the opportunity coincided with my recent desire to feature more self-published books and authors, plus the premise of her story reminded me of the Glenda Larke novel, The Last Stormlord.
I am honoured that Suzanne has agreed to allow Another World to participate in her two week blog tour, and I’m even happier to say that today’s book spotlight is just the first of three scheduled stops to my blog this week.
Now, without further ado, here is everything you need to know about The Lost Sentinel, and its author.
The magical island of Kalaya is dying, along with its Sentinel. With the Kalayan people turning their back on magic, can Tei help the exiles find their new Sentinel before it’s too late?
Kalaya is controlled by the Assembly – set up to govern but now under the control of Rathnor, who is intent on persecuting those who have magic, many of whom have taken refuge in the Turrak Mountains.
Tei has been raised to hide her magic, until her father, Migil, is visited by an old friend who warns them that they must seek refuge in the mountains.
On the journey, an enemy attack leaves her father mortally wounded. He sees her into the care of two exiles, Rike and Garrick, and on his deathbed makes a shocking confession that changes Tei’s life.
Tei must put her trust in these strangers, especially when mysterious Masked Riders seem determined to stop her reaching Turrak.
Struggling with self-doubt, Tei joins the exiles in their search for their lost Sentinel. But the Masked Riders want the Sentinel too, and time, as well as hope, is running out.
Can Tei help the exiles save the island magic and reunite the Kalayan people before their ignorance destroys them all?
You can pre-order The Lost Sentinel today for the special low price of 99p / 99c from Amazon. The book will revert to full price on publication day, so don’t miss out on this offer.
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.
