The Lost Sentinel hits No.1 in the US! Plus it’s No.4 Amazon Best Seller of all fantasy books!

I wanted to type that title in full caps to shout about how happy I am this morning. To see my book baby in a no.1 position in the US is amazing.

Finally I’ve worked out a way to share the screenshots.

First the big one – No.4 in the top 100 across all fantasy books in the US!

I’ve also hit No.1 best seller in 3 categories Actions and Adventure Fantasy, Romantic fantasy and New Adult fantasy as per below.

This more than makes up for the fact I only had 3 hours sleep, what with the heatwave, a puppy stealing the bed (she also manged to kick me straight in the eye!) and a cat meowing half the night for god only knows what reason.

I also reached No. 2 in Coming of Age Fantasy and Epic Fantasy, and it’s No. 3 in Sword and Sorcery.

Finally it’s wonderful to see that The Lost Sentinel is currently at position 83 in the Top 100 Free Kindle chart!

I know this is fleeting and within a few hours things will change, but for now I’m going to enjoy it! Hopefully this buzz will get me through the rest of the day on such little sleep.

Don’t forget to pick up your free copy of The Lost Sentinel if you haven’t done so already. It’s only free for 2 more days.

Silent Sea Chronicles Box Set – 1 week to go! #fantasy #sff http://mybook.to/sscboxset

The Silent Sea Chronicles box set will be published on 4th October.

A few years ago having a finished trilogy was just a fanciful dream and I doubted my ability to complete such a huge project. According to Amazon the three books total 1396 pages! And for a short time you can get all that for just 99p worldwide. Pre-order it here.

But that is not the purpose of this post today. Today I want to get a few opinions on the blurb as I don’t want years of work to be let down by an inferior blurb.

Here is the finished blurb as of 30/09/19…

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

1396 pages of magic, adventure and intrigue.

This epic fantasy box set contains:
The Lost Sentinel – Book 1
The Sentinel’s Reign – Book 2

Praise for the Silent Sea Chronicles…

This is a story about war, magic, and destiny, which you cannot miss. Following the characters during their journeys has been incredible… (Goodreads) Sofia – A book. A thought.

Love this series!!…The Sentinel’s Alliance is an epic conclusion to a fantastic series. (Amazon) Jessica Belmont

I don’t want this series to end! (Amazon) Yvonne

I have really enjoyed this series and strongly recommend it to those that enjoy fantasy stories… I can’t wait to read more from Suzanne Rogerson. (Goodreads) Jessica Bronder

What an epic journey this trilogy has been…There are some terrific battle scenes, with massive shocks, and mouth dropping moments that I just hadn’t seen coming, all delivered with Rogerson perfection. (Amazon top 1000 reviewer. Vine Voice) Susan Hampson

(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 Suzanne’s brilliant world building skills are still shining through… (Goodreads) KT Robson

Rogerson has managed to craft together a fantasy trilogy that is simultaneously complex and quick. So many layers and twists are woven throughout the books and yet it never feels too heavy, the pace moves at a determined clip and action holds one’s attention captive. (Amazon) Angela – Pooled Ink Reviews

Fabulous Saga… it’s well written and utterly magical! (Amazon) Shelley Clarke

“The Sentinel’s Alliance” – The story is skillfully elaborated, comprises interesting turns, and has a great flow. Suzanne Rogerson introduces each character with finesse… Highly recommended. (Goodreads) Karen

Silent Sea Chronicles: Cover reveal, Release date and Request for help

Two weeks ago I asked for your help choosing the cover of the box set for Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.

Thanks for the votes and comments. One comment in particular made me look at the project in a different light so I went with…

I went against what my heart wanted and chose with my head, going with the blue theme to symbolise the sea. I think it looks brilliant and I’m really happy with the job The Cover Collection have done on this and all my covers.

The release date is 4th October 2019 and here is the universal pre-order link.

The best news is, I’m selling the box set for a special price of 99p/99c for limited time only.

Here’s the working blurb. It’s short and to the point, plus I’m using my readers quotes, so post those reviews on Goodreads and Amazon and I’ll add a snippet of it to the sales page!

Blurb

This fantasy series is set within the magical islands of the Silent Sea and beyond.

Follow Tei’s journey as she attempts to save the dying island of Kalaya and restore its magic by finding the lost sentinel. She must prevent a civil war from destroying the Kalayan people and make alliances with other islands in order to stop the Elkenan invaders before their murderous quest to destroy all magic succeeds. Will Tei and her friends prevail? Buy the whole trilogy now to find out.

This is an epic fantasy adventure with friendship, love and sacrifice at its heart.

Book Review: The Sentinel’s Reign by Suzanne Rogerson

I just had to share this brilliant review of The Sentinel’s Reign – book 2 in Silent Sea Chronicles.

‘…Wow, this is another brilliant installment of the Silent Sea Chronicles which left reeling after the many twists and turns, which I wasn’t expecting, especially towards the ending.  I haven’t been able to get this story out of my head for several days now, and I just can’t wait to read the final part!’

Wrap up post Pt 3 of The Sentinel’s Alliance Publication day #bookreviews #fantasy #trilogy

This is my last wrap up post and will be highlighting the brilliant reviews that came in on 6th July for The Sentinel’s Alliance. As it’s the last part in the trilogy I was very nervous how the day would go, especially as 14 bloggers were reviewing, but I’m so happy to say the conclusion to the series was well received.

I’ve loved reading the reviews again and reminding myself that I really did achieve a whole trilogy. Not only that but a lot of people seemed to like it, some even loved it! That has made me very happy indeed.

First a spotlight post from Satisfaction for insatiable readers.

Now the reviewers blog links and quotes…

Radzy Writes – ‘…this is a strong novel in an excellently written series, and one I enjoyed a lot. If you’ve fallen head over heels for this series so far, I think you’re going to devour this novel.’

Mai’s Musings – ‘…amongst her beautifully crafted world, Suzanne Rogerson has created a story that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish, and I couldn’t read the book fast enough to answer all the questions forming in my mind.’

J Bronder Book Reviews – ‘This is a great conclusion to the series… I have really enjoyed this series and strongly recommend it to those that enjoy fantasy stories. There is a little bit of everything in these books. I can’t wait to read more from Suzanne Rogerson.’

K T Robson – ‘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… I have loved watching the characters grow and develop throughout this trilogy, and it was great seeing them band together for the final instalment.’

Seans book reviews – ‘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.’

Jessica Belmont – ‘I love this series, and I’m sad to see it end. I took longer to read this one, because I wasn’t ready to leave this world or these characters. I love Suzanne Rogerson’s writing. I can’t wait to read more from her. I highly recommend this series! You won’t want to miss it!’

The Treasure within – ‘This book was EVERYTHING I’d hoped it would be. I’ve loved the first two books of the series, and was very happy indeed with how everything worked out in this one. I’ve fallen in love with pretty much the entire cast of characters, and by now, want the best for all of them. That, I’d say, is a sign of a good bit of writing!’

Yes more blogs – ‘WOW!! Unbelievable. Amazing. Brilliant. Wonderful. Beautiful. Just a few words to describe not just this book but the whole trilogy has been an undeniably amazing read… The world building is some of the best I’ve read. With a little bit of your own imagination you are transformed into a beautiful magical world. That has it’s highs and lows like any good story. I’m usually quite good at where a book is headed but this has lots of surprises, twists and turns which had me up most nights as I had to know what was going to happen.’

Pagefarer book blog – ‘…her skill lies in intertwining separate storylines, and in writing truly dislikable (yet sometimes nuanced) bad guys – and vice versa. She is still not shy about killing off main characters – which I quite enjoy!’

Terror Tree – ‘As I was reading this story, I thought I knew where this story was going, but there were a few surprises that I did not see coming and I did spend time just sitting in amazement at what I had just read. This series has been a great read and I have enjoyed watching all the characters grow and adapt to whatever was thrown at them.’

In de Boekenkast Link to review on facebook – ‘What a captivating and lovely fantasy book! …This fantasy series is fast paced, amusing and original with a lot of unexpected situations, characters that grow with every book and an intriguing plot line.’

Novel Kicks – ‘The writing is relaxed and easy to read, the story is well paced and doesn’t dawdle; keeping you drawn through the book. The characters are likeable, if a little thin in places, but all in all they are well formed.’

Cheryl M-M Book Blog – ‘It’s fantasy with a compelling plot and intriguing characters. Rogerson threads an undercurrent of romance throughout the fantasy, which then invites readers of other genres in for a read.’

Odd Socks and Lollipops– ‘…I love the world that Suzanne Rogerson has created and I was so not ready to leave the characters behind. The Sentinel’s Alliance is a wonderful conclusion to the series…  The writing style was wonderfully immersive and the world building built on the earlier books brilliantly. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole series and I cannot wait to read more from Suzanne. If you like epic fantasy stories, then I would definitely recommend the Silent Sea Chronicles, they are a fantastic example of the genre.’

***

Wow, I’m overwhelmed with these reviews and feel so honored these bloggers agreed to read and take part in the publication day push. I hope you’ve enjoyed these snippets and have had a chance to check the reviews in more detail.

If you’ve been inspired to try the trilogy over the last few weeks of reviews and posts, then the good news is I will be keeping the sale price of each book in the trilogy at 99p for a few more days.

Thanks for reading and thanks again to those who took part, and to Rachel for organising everything.

A QUICK PLEA TO EVERYONE – If you have read any of my books would you consider putting a quick review on Amazon and Goodreads?

I plan to approach the libraries about stocking my books and would love to be able to show them how much people have enjoyed the trilogy. I’ve also entered the Amazon storyteller prize. I doubt a third book would get very far in the competition, but its always worth a try. Thanks very much.
