1 day to go! The Sentinel’s Alliance goes live 6th July. Only 99p to preorder #fantasy http://mybook.to/sentinelalliance

This is just a quick post to highlight the ebook publication of The Sentinel’s Alliance on 6th July 2019!

But I’ll let you into a secret, the paperback is already available to buy at Amazon – I had to make it live to be able to order stock copies. So if you prefer paperbacks you don’t need to wait any longer.

I’m so excited to see the whole trilogy finally complete and I’m even more excited by the fact I will be celebrating the day with a huge blog tour blitz. 32 bloggers have signed up to share reviews, interviews and book spotlight posts. I can’t wait to see what the verdict is on the trilogy.

I’ll be spending the day running a market stall with two other authors in Staines Upon Thames’s High Street. I have high hopes of selling a few signed copies to my local community but I will still be checking up on social media all day, so please message me and share whatever you can to help spread the love for the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.

The Sentinel’s Alliance has already received 3 4 star ratings on Goodreads from ARC readers!

Can new alliances save the islands of the Silent Sea from the murderers stalking their shores?

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?

See the trilogy on Goodreads

The whole series is still on sale at 99p each. I would love to make an impact with sales over the next few days, so if you know anyone who enjoys a face-paced, character-driven fantasy with world building reviewers have been raving about, why not direct them my way.

Silent Sea Chronicles blog tour wrap up #fantasy #bookreviews #bookbloggers

The 10 day blog tour is over and it’s been amazing. I’ve been honoured to have so many reviewers post reviews of The Lost Sentinel and The Sentinel’s Reign on their blogs. I’ve tried to respond to each reviewer personally, but if I’ve accidentally missed you, I would like to thank you now for being involved. It means a lot to see people have enjoyed my books, well it means more than a lot…

Here’s a reminder of the blog schedule;

Silent Sea Chronicles Full Tour Banner

A very big thank you goes to Rachel, she’s done a brilliant job hosting the tour and organising everything.  If you want a blog tour, I highly recommend you contact Rachel’s Random Resources.

I’ve shared links to the reviews for the last 10 day, so I won’t clutter this post with links, even though I want to keep sharing the brilliant reviews with you. Instead, let’s take a quick look at the stats;

The Lost Sentinel now has 38 ratings on Goodreads and 28 reviews with an average of  4.08 stars.

The Sentinel’s Reign has 19 ratings on Goodreads and 14 reviews with an average of 4.11 stars.

My overall ratings on Goodreads for all 4 books is 106 with an average of 4.16 stars. I’m so happy to have reached triple figures and hope to see this number continue to grow.

Amazon reviews are still low for both books, which is a shames as I want to run a BookBub ad and I think they look at Amazon rather than Goodreads ratings. I shall go for it anyway and keep my fingers crossed I am lucky this time.

If you have read the books would you consider writing a quick review?

Don’t forget the big upcoming event on 6th July – the release of The Sentinel’s Alliance!

Many of the above reviewers have agreed to read The Sentinel’s Alliance – book 3, so I hope you can come back on to read what they thought of the conclusion to the trilogy. Look forward to seeing you then.

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.

I hope these reviews have inspired you to take a chance on Silent Sea Chronicles. The whole series can be yours for only £2.97! I really hope you’re ready to take that leap and wish you well on the adventure. Why not get in touch and let me know what you think. I love to hear my readers feedback.

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 5 Silent Sea Chronicles #fantasy #blogtour #bookreview quotes

A little late, but here are the links to some great reviews The Lost Sentinel received yesterday during the 10 day blog review tour.

On the shelf reviews – ‘If you love fantasy with intricate world building and a good old fashioned quest at its core then I think this is a book you would really enjoy.’

Just Books – ‘The world building and visual descriptions were amazing, I could always see the surroundings in my mind, whether it was the barren island of Stone Haven or the wonderful home of the ‘exiles’ in the mountains.’

Bookworm for kids – ‘…it was an exciting read, and I have no doubt that fantasy fans will enjoy getting lost in this world and will look forward to reading the rest of the series.’

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.’

It is day two of the blog tour and I’m excited to share the reviews that have come in so far for The Lost Sentinel – book 1 in my Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.

The reviews have all been very positive and I have to admit enjoying reading what reviewers have to say – maybe a little too much! Writing is such an insular occupation, so seeing how others enjoy and connect with my characters and story is one of the most rewarding things in the world!

Before I go into one, here are some of the things the reviewers have been saying along with links to their blog posts. Please support them by liking their posts and of course sharing everything on social media. I’d love to reach some new readers during the tour.

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.’
