The Sentinel’s Alliance (Silent Sea Chronicles #3) by Suzanne Rogerson (2019)
Fiction | Fantasy
“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?
The Sentinel’s Alliance is the final book in the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.”

pooled ink Review:
Thank you to the author for submitting this book for review!
I was very happy to hear from Suzanne Rogerson when she invited me to review the final book in the Silent Sea Chronicles! I’m always curious about endings and with this series I had no idea what to expect.
So what did I think?
Brace yourself for an epic finale! Plenty of action, alliances, enemies, and magic inundate the page as we follow Tei, Brogan, and Farrell while they attempt to wade their way through Kalaya’s turmoil. Unions are made, peace is heralded in, and yet never stay too comfortable because there’s always some darkness and turmoil churning beneath the surface. Despite everything the people have endured, magic and those who use it are still threatened and this dance of uncertainty cannot continue on. Either magic must be eradicated once and for all or it must rally together in a final great battle cry and prevail over its oppressors.
This series really has come a long way from that fateful flight with Tei and her father in book one. We meet many different characters and walks of life while facing down the fearful knowledge that with war comes death. 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.
It’s difficult to write a review for series endings because so much tends to happen and yet to discuss almost any of it would accidentally spoil everything for new readers who haven’t yet begun book one. But just know that if the plot intrigues you, if book one ensnares you, then the finale will satisfy you. Quite a well done fantasy series in my opinion and it wasn’t dragged out for a dozen books (I hate when authors stretch things on for far too long haha huzzah for shorter series!).
The Sentinel’s Alliance is a thrilling conclusion to this unique trilogy of fantasy, magic, destiny, secrecy, and war. Characters come and characters go all while battle is waged for the future of magic in the isles of the Silent Sea. Exciting, determined, and satisfying, this series is one any fantasy reader might enjoy.
