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.

I really enjoyed this book, I’m honestly so grateful to the author for having provided me with copies of her books to be able to read them, has been a pleasure and this conclusion didn’t disappoint me. Even though it was a little hard to me to get into it at the beginning, I ended up enjoying it, and I really loved being able to read about the characters again and I must say that I’m quite satisfied with the ending, the author has done a great job putting everything in its place.
It’s impossible for me to tell you exactly what the book is about because it’s the third and the conclusion to a great trilogy, so my best recommendation is that you come back and read the first book so you can understand more my feelings, I think It’s worth it. If you enjoy fantasy, good world-building, and an interesting magic system, then it’s the trilogy for you. I must also remind you that it’s VERY important that we support our independent authors.
It’s so crazy for me to think that since the first time I read about Tei and her father and began to follow them throughout their journey, the story has progressed so much. In this third book, we can appreciate more the alliances that have been forged during the previous books, in addition, there are many more characters, some new one and some who return to make our hearts happy. I think that Tei, Brogan, and Farrell are all characters that, although they’re very different from each other, achieved great growth and seeing how each one fights against their own demons while trying to fight for a common good, is sensational. I also enjoyed the dynamics and relationships between them, it was very entertaining to read.
I don’t tend to be a big fan of long journeys, you know that, but when a trilogy focuses on things like destiny and has high-impact scenes and a lot of action like this one, I can let that pass.
I really feel that the author has worked very hard with this book to give us something that will surprise us and keep us on the edge of our seat because that’s what happened to me. There are moments where you think everything will be fine and you feel that things are finally falling into place, but then you also feel that little tension on your back that something is wrong or out of place, and that’s when something happens and the story changes completely. I was in shock on several occasions. I enjoy being surprised, so I had to give credit to the author for that. There’s something really satisfactory in knowing that you haven’t been able to guess what would happen.
The world continues to be one of my favorite things in this story, many times, and especially as we move forward, everything gets a bit chaotic but I feel it’s chaotic in a good way, and it’s because you can’t stop thinking about that. The descriptions are magnificent, it really has just got better and better in that aspect, which makes me happy because it’s not usually something that I find in every fantasy book.
I feel very happy to have read these books, I’m even happier because I know the author will be writing more in the same world, so that’s super exciting! I know it’s a detail, but this one, no doubt, it’s my favorite cover of the trilogy, just look at it! Isn’t it beautiful? LOVE IT. The author’s writing style improves a lot with each book and in a way makes me proud, I can’t wait to know what she’ll do next! This is a story about war, magic, and destiny, which you cannot miss. Following the characters during their journeys has been incredible and hopefully, more people know how to appreciate this trilogy and receive a lot of love.
