The Sentinel’s Alliance
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?

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

The conclusion to this series was one of ups and downs. The characters are still strong and ones that I will remember for a long time.
Tei — She is the confidante. A strong leader who has a tender side and one who also is very much more like humans that we would know then anyone else. She is selfish and selfless all at the same time at points.
Brogan — The strong man of the stories and one who is a protector and the person who makes a difference in everyone’s life. He is the person that you want to have on your side both as a fighter as well as someone who is a politician.
Callisa — The Sentinel herself and she is a manipulative person who really makes me want to smack her at times. Her role is very difficult as she is the protector of her island and she will do what she can to protect it even if it is something that many would say is bad.
The plot of this book was good but I felt a bit let down by the ending with the Invaders. It felt like it was too easy and not what I was expecting. Don’t get me wrong this isn’t bad but just not what I had hoped. I was hoping to see more combat for it which would have made a lot more sense.
I did like the interactions with Brogan and Tei. It felt real and didn’t seem pushed at all. It was nice to see as sometimes that can be hard to deal with relationships that feel like it could really happen.
