The Assembly controls Kalaya. Originally set up to govern, they now persecute those with magic and exile them to the Turrak Mountains.

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.
Struggling with self doubt, Tei joins the exiles search for the new Sentinel who is 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 for the exiles to succeed in their quest, 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.

The Lost Sentinel 3 years old today! 99p sale. Plus #audiobook news #fantasy

On 16th June 2017 I published The Lost Sentinel, book 1 in Silent Sea Chronicles.

Amazon reviews of The Lost Sentinel

‘Epic fantasy at its best.’

‘The start of an adventure that will hook you in’

‘An alluring and dangerous quest of fate’

It was so exciting to release book 1 into the world and even better to see books 2 and 3 follow; The Sentinel’s Reign in 2018 and The Sentinel’s Alliance in 2019.

Amazon 5 star review of The Sentinel’s Reign – ‘After reading The Lost Sentinel, I was invested in these character’s lives and as before beware of heartbreak. There were times that I was in mourning and then as I was continuing the story, I wanted to fist pump the air. This story will flip your emotions and as the story intensifies with the pending danger, I could not put this book down. As I finished this story I felt physically drained as if I had been there following them all.’

Goodreads 5 star review The Sentinel’s Alliance. – ‘This has been a fantastic finale to the trilogy, it’s had everything that made the first two books to good and then some. All of Suzannes brilliant world building skills are still shining through…’

The best moment, apart from receiving such brilliant reviews of course, was seeing the whole trilogy come together last year in the box set; Tei’s journey was complete. There can be no better feeling than seeing all your years of hard work released into the world like this!

Amazon 5 star Review ‘What an epic journey this trilogy has been, such a huge pleasure to read all three books…’

Amazon 5 star review ‘Phewee, just finished Book Three, I read all three books one after the other and now I’m at a loss. I hope Suzanne writes more about this world and its characters, it’s well written and utterly magical!’

Now I’m ready to announce the next stage in The Lost Sentinel’s life. There’s going to be an audiobook!!!

I’m so excited that production is underway by talented narrator George Ellington. He’s already produced a number of audiobooks for various authors so it’s great to be working with him on The Lost Sentinel. I think the trilogy audiobook is going to be epic!

In previous years I’ve had blog tours and reviews to help me celebrate each annual milestone, so today feels a little weird that it’s just me and this little post. You can help me spread the love by sharing and tweeting about this. Thank you.

I’m putting the The Lost Sentinel on sale for 99p for a few days only. If you haven’t started the trilogy yet, now would be a great time to try it.

Trilogy blurb

Tei has magic in a world where people like her are persecuted and forced into exile. Whilst fleeing their home, her father is attacked and his deathbed confession reveals a dangerous secret that will change her life forever.

Tei’s homeland, the magical island of Kalaya, is dying and without a Sentinel to restore the magic, it’s only a matter of time before all life is wiped out.

She must join the exiles in the search for the lost Sentinel, but they are not the only ones after the missing guardian. Sinister Masked Riders are on their trail and time is running out.

Tei must risk everything she loves to save Kalaya, but is she ready to make that sacrifice?

Day 9 & 10 finale of Silent Sea Chronicles Blog tour #fantasy #yafantasy #bookreview #99p series

This is the final day of the blog tour for Silent Sea Chronicles. Both books have received some wonderful reviews and here are a few more quotes I’d like to share from days 9 and 10.

J Bronder Book Reviews – A double review of book 1 and 2

The Lost Sentinel – ‘I loved this world and how it was written without a huge info dump. I loved the concept of twisting people’s beliefs of magic users into fear to control… I think this is a great start to a new series. I am very curious to see what happens in the next book and recommend anyone that likes fantasy stories to check this book out.’

The Sentinel’s Reign – ‘I really like how those raveled frayed endings from the first book are wrapped together and some of my questions answered. We find an end to one conflict but so many more waiting to strike in the shadows… This is a great series and one that any fantasy lover will enjoy. Now I can’t wait to read the last book, Sentinel’s Alliance to see how this finally ends.’

M M Cheryl Book Blog – ‘This is the second part of an intriguing high fantasy series with a compelling premise and characters. Rogerson delivers a solid read, which isn’t always easy when it comes to the genre. I am enjoying the read so far and look forward to the third book in the series, the Sentinel’s Alliance.’

Jess Bookish Life – ‘I’m still very intrigued by the magical aspect of this fantasy world and I do love to figure things out and learn about the rule (societal, cultural and magical) when dealing with a fantasy genre novel. So it’s always good when the author gives the readers some bits and pieces of information as then go deep into the series or world building. In that sense, this novel brings some extra stuff to us… Over all, love the book. If you like fantasy novels, you should check this out.’

Just Books – ‘Suzanne Rogersons world building and descriptive writing ensured that, once again, I could always see where in the world I and the characters were… I have become attached to many of the characters within the pages of the Silent Sea Chronicles and am looking forward to reading the final instalment.’

Mai’s Musings – ‘…Her vivid descriptions make me wish I could pay a visit to the Silent Sea and meet the inhabitants of Kalaya and Stone Haven in person… I enjoyed getting to know the characters better this time around, and really understanding what made some of them tick, finding out why they acted the way they did. For more than one this meant a major change of opinion about them, and my favourite characters were constantly changing. I found my emotions wildly bouncing from joy, to heartbreak, to triumph and everything in between as the story unfolded around them, and lives were changed forever.’

***

It’s great to end the tour with a bang!

A huge thank you to all those involved in this epic blog tour. I plan to do a wrap up post tomorrow, so please join me then.

Day 7 of Silent Sea Chronicles Blog tour #fantasy #bookreview organised by @rararesources

Here comes some reviews today for The Sentinel’s Reign…

Seans book reviews – ‘This series is great and I just love to see what has happened from the first book to the second you see the growth of Tei who is the star of the show.’

Radzy writes – ‘It’s obvious the author has carefully plotted this series and put in many hours, to the point where I’m stunned this series hasn’t exploded to a mainstream audience yet. It’ll happen, and if you’re on the fence as to whether you should keep going with the series, the answer is yes. Continue, and then shout at all your fantasy loving friends to check this out as well.  …I should say somewhere however, that you don’t need to be an avid fantasy reader to enjoy this. It’s magical realism, and the undercurrent of fantasy is subtle enough, that even your fans of general epics will get a real kick out of this. It’s genre’d right, and is absolutely fantasy, but it’s not High, nor Paranormal.’

 

And a mid-read review on The Lost Sentinel

Writing with wolves – ‘…the world-building in this book feels super unique to me… I love that we get to experience three different parts of this world but my favourite is of course the exiled land of Kalaya; I love the tunnel system & the feeling of magic that flows out of the book during the scenes set in that part of the world. The island that Farrell lives on also intrigues me though & I’m excited to learn more about it as the story progresses.’

***

I just want to say a quick thank you to all the reviewers who have taken the time to read and review my books. I really appreciate your help reaching more readers. And of course a special thank you to Rachel for organising everything.

There are still three days to go on the tour so I hope you can join me for more quotes. I will just ask if these reviews have caught your interest, please consider picking up the trilogy for only £2.97. And of course, I’d love to see your reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.

Thanks very much.

Day 6 recap Silent Sea Chronicles #blogtour #fantasy #bookreview

This is a quick recap of the reviews that came in on Day 6 of the blog tour.

A couple of new reviews for The Lost Sentinel

Mai’s Musings – ‘The Lost Sentinel is a rich storyline told from various viewpoints, and as I tried to work out how these would all intertwine over the course of the books, I found I was asking more and more questions, and reading faster and faster. It is the sort of book that you want to read slowly so it doesn’t end, but at the same time you can’t help but race through.’

The Treasure Within Blog – ‘Tei is a resilient character, but not a perfect person, by any means. She makes numerous mistakes and bad choices, and is forced to deal with the consequences of her actions. It’s refreshing to read a character who’s author really wasn’t afraid to supply with flaws – and it makes Tei feel much more realistic overall. In the writing world, a very focused- on fact is the necessity of providing characters with flaws – and I think Suzanne Rogerson has done a stellar job of it.’

 

The Sentinel’s Reign – book 2 in Silent Sea Chronicles also hit the spotlight with reviewers.

Jessica Belmont – ‘What I love about The Sentinel’s Reign is that it doesn’t struggle from “middle book syndrome.” The plot is great, the characters are developing, and this doesn’t feel like just a bridge from book one to book three!’

PageFarer Book Blog – ‘I said in my last review that Rogerson is good at writing bad guys; this is still the case but another thing to add to that is the depiction of injustice – something that always gets to me in the real world, and the unfairness of which I found was genuinely affecting me at times.’

The Treasure within – ‘A small character from the first book was picked up again in this narrative, and expanded into a more main member of the cast. She was honestly one of my favourites throughout the book – a young but powerful magic-wielder, with uncanny senses and the kindest of hearts. She stole my heart, and I hope to read more of her in the third book!’

Thanks very much to the reviewers on this tour, you’ve made this last week awesome!

 

There are still a few more days on the tour to go so I hope you can join me again.

Day 3 & 4 Silent Sea Chronicles blog tour #fantasy #bookreview #indieauthor

I’m really pleased to share some more review quotes today. I didn’t get around to sharing anything yesterday so this combines day 3 & 4.

Silent Sea Chronicles Full Tour Banner

Firstly, this is a re-post of an older review and not part of the tour, but I had to include it anyway!  Strawberry Post – ‘Overall this is an amazing and gripping fantasy read… The world of Kalaya is rich and dark and I’m amazed at how sucked into the action I was reading this, and how unpredictable and dark the storyline is.’

Pagefarer Book Blog – ‘…Rogerson’s world-building and ability to weave separate storylines is capable – indeed, multiple viewpoints seems to be part of her M.O.’ ‘…stylistically she paints it all with an economy that allows the reader to meet her in the middle, and invest more in the world and characters she has created…’

Oddsocksandlollipops – A double review for books 1 & 2 ‘…I am loving this series so far! It’s got so many things I love, fierce female characters, magic and some really unexpected plot twists…’

Yesmoreblogs – Another double review split over these two blog posts below.

The Lost Sentinel – ‘I would give this book a 5/5 I fell in  love with it from the start. The world building is really well written. It feels like you’re in the book with these amazing characters and on the beautiful island of Kayala.

The Sentinel’s Reign – ‘I literally read this book straight after the first book and its just as good if not better. I can’t wait for the final book to be released to see how this trilogy will end. This book left a pretty much open ending which has literally had me on the edge of my seat and making me want more. I’ve been constantly thinking about what could happen in the third book. If you can’t tell I’m a bit excited to read it.’

Jess Bookish Life – ‘…one things I absolutely loved, besides the realism that some characters had, was the world building. This fictional fantasy world was so vivid in my mind thanks to all the descriptions. Overall, this is a fantastic adventurous, magical and drama fueled first novel, that took me on a journey and made me wish I could just visit Kalaya…’

Seansbookreviews – ‘Reading the first two books put a smile on my face.  It is a book like no other that I have read before which is saying something as I have read hundreds of fantasy novels.’

Radzy Writes – ‘…if you’re a fan of well crafted, elegantly cultivated novels which you can sink your teeth in for hours upon hours, I’d check this out. Likewise, fans of massive worlds such as Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings, will be very happy with the Silent Seas Chronicles.’

Cheryl’s M & M Book Blog‘It’s high fantasy with solid world-building and an interesting set of characters.’

K T Robson‘With all the intricate world building, interesting characters and epic journey they all partake in, this book had me glued to it from the first page… Suzanne Rogerson has written a fantastic start to this series – I love her writing style, and that she doesn’t shy away from putting her characters through some tough challenges as the story progresses.’

Terror Tree‘…I got drawn into a story that gave me excitement and heartbreak… If you love fantasy and quest than pick up this series.’

Splashes into books‘A very different story, this is an intriguing, magical adventure and a great start to a new series.’

An appeal for #reviewers & #bookbloggers to review my #fantasy books #indieauthor

Quote

I haven’t done one of these posts in a while. But right now, book reviewers and book bloggers I need your help!

help-please

I have 3 fantasy books published and I would love to get them reviewed on Amazon, Goodreads and your blogs. Over the last few months I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of pages read in Kindle Unlimited – hitting between 22K and 24K per month!

Those numbers are a dream come true for me, but unfortunately none of these pages read have converted into reviews.

I would love to get some reviews for my books and I’m offering reviewers ARC copies of their choice. We can even run book giveaways for your readers if that’s something that would interest you.

I’m going to the Winchester Writer’s festival in June and I would love to be able to put in my cover letter that I have 60+ reviews and 100+ ratings on Goodreads. Can it be done? With your help, anything is possible!

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 but 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.
Struggling with self doubt, Tei joins the exiles search for the new Sentinel who is 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 for the exiles to succeed in their quest, but is Tei willing to risk everything to save the island magic?

The Sentinel’s reign is doomed to failure unless Tei can prevent the Kalayan people from plunging into war. 

With magic restored on Kalaya, life is flourishing for Tei and the exiles. But Rathnor’s plans for war soon escalate and thwart any chance of peace.

Brogan’s position on the Assembly is uncertain as rumours circulate that he is an exile spy.

After an attempt on his life, Farrell is more determined than ever to build a home for his people on Stone Haven. But the council have their sights set on Kalaya and Farrell struggles to steer them from war.

As trouble brews within and outside forces gather against them, can the exiles keep their hold on the magic, or will this spell the end of Kalaya and its people?

Happy weekend everyone. I would just like to let you know that my book sale is coming to an end. But if you’re quick you can pick up both books in this heroic fantasy series for just 99p each. The sale is worldwide so everyone can grab a bargain book.

The Lost Sentinel – Book 1.

The Sentinel’s Reign – Book 2.

two book covers

‘If you’re a loving fantasy fan seeking a tale filled with adventure and magic then you should really give this series a try’ – Pooled Ink Reviews

The Lost Sentinel – ‘Overall this is an amazing and gripping fantasy read. It’s a long book but filled with a lot of great action and a perfect fantasy setting ( there are no fantasy type creatures just humans). The world of Kalaya is rich and dark and I’m amazed at how sucked into the action I was reading this, and how unpredictable and dark the storyline is. The ending is a satisfying one but the story is far from over, it’s only beginning and sets up questions for the next book in the series and I can’t wait to read it!’ – Strawberry

The Lost Sentinel ‘…this story bowled me over, it was an absolutely outstanding epic fantasy and the kind of writing fantasy authors should be aspiring to. The only negative I have is that I’m dreading the wait for book two.’BrizzleLass

The Sentinel’s Reign ‘A super paced story, plenty going off and an ending that makes me hungry for the last instalment. This is a cracking epic saga.’ Susan Hampson Books from Dusk Till Dawn.

‘There is a 3rd book planned for this series so don’t despair if you get to the end and want more. Even if you don’t like fantasy books usually you will like this series, so don’t delay, get your copy today!’ – Alinefromabook

Why don’t you give the series a go and make this authors day. See further reviews on Goodreads.
