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?

Visions of Zarua #Audiobook blog tour wrap up #epicfantasy #fantasy

Over the last five days lots of lovely bloggers have been reviewing the audiobook of Visions of Zarua and I’m excited to share a few snippets from their posts, plus links to the in depth reviews. Here’s a reminder of those involved.

Visions of Zarua Full Tour Banner

Mai’s Musings  ‘Having discovered Suzanne’s Silent Sea Chronicles earlier this year and fallen totally in love with them, I was excited to see what Visions of Zarua had to offer. I approached this book with extremely high hopes and I wasn’t disappointed. Although narrated by a male narrator, I found that Suzanne’s signature style and writing voice resonated throughout, giving me, as a fan of her work, a familiar, welcoming feel that absorbed me instantly. Once again her exquisite attention to detail shines through…’

Rev. Rebecca Writers: Read, Write, Pray  ‘I found this book to be fresh and unique because the author combines my favorite elements of fantasy with an engaging and suspenseful mystery. I was on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t stop listening…’

In De Boekenkast  ‘I loved this book set in a world full of imagination and amazing characters. The audiobook with the wonderful storyteller is amazing and gives the mystery set a special touch…’

Writing with Wolves  ‘If you like original & deeply detailed fantasies with magic & assassins then you seriously need to give this book a read… or a listen!’

Jess Bookish Life  ‘The narrator had a type of voice that grabbed my attention, and following all the POVs and all the characters was even more fun, especially when I would close my eyes and imagine what was being narrated. It allowed my imagination to run wild by just listening…’

Splashes into Books  ‘The narrator for the audiobook version has a fantastic, clear and expressive voice for bringing the story to life in the imagination of the reader, making it clear just who is talking and using a variety of cadence to keep the listener engaged and enthralled. Even though I’d read the story and remembered much of what happened (which shows how well written it is) I still listened with eager anticipation to the audiobook version.’

Reviewsfeed ‘Guy Barnes’ narration of the storyline. Can I say, he does a fantastic job of bringing each of the characters, major or minor, to life. Each is distinctively unique in the persona he has given them. The variety of accents he pulls off consistently is amazing too.’

Donnasbookblog  ‘I thought that this was a well written and well developed fantasy story with an added element of mystery and it really had me hooked right from the start.’

Alistenersslant ‘I loved everything about this from the first word to the last, I was drawn in and hooked and didn’t want to leave. The characters, the setting, the sights, sounds and descriptions well all right on the money.’

***

It’s wonderful to see that the audiobook has been so well received, but I shouldn’t be surprised as Guy Barnes made such a brilliant job of the narration. If you missed it, here’s a sample.
