I’m so excited to be finally sharing the final book of this trilogy with you all, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading the entire series. Thanks again to Suzanne for providing copies of the books, and to Rachel of Rachels Random Resources for inviting me to be part of all the tours.
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?
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 as we get to explore more, seeing Stone Haven through Teis eyes whilst she is visiting the island. Not to mention we really see the whole story really come together; I feel like the first book set the foundations, showing us the likes of Tei, Farrell and Brogan, but not giving away too much about how their stories were connected. Book two opened the door to that connection, and now the final book is showing how all their lives have interwoven together. I have loved watching the characters grow and develop throughout this trilogy, and it was great seeing them band together for the final instalment.
Just as I have come to expect from Suzannes writing, the story was full of action and intrigue, keeping me glued to the page, keen to see what would be thrown at the characters next! I have a huge soft spot for Beliss, she’s come such a long way since she first arrived Turrak.
I was thrilled to see a promising authors note at the end of this book, hinting that there may be more Silent Seas adventures in the future. I spent so long rooting for Tei and Brogan together, I’d love to see how their future pans out together and what further adventures they embark on!
To celebrate publication day, all three books of the Silent Sea Chronicles series are 99p today!
About The Author
Suzanne lives in Middlesex, England with her hugely encouraging husband and two children.
She wrote her first novel at the age of twelve. She discovered the fantasy genre in her late teens and has never looked back. Giving up work to raise a family gave her the impetus to take her attempts at novel writing beyond the first draft, and she is lucky enough to have a husband who supports her dream – even if he does occasionally hint that she might think about getting a proper job one day.
Suzanne loves gardening and has a Hebe (shrub) fetish. She enjoys cooking with ingredients from the garden, and regularly feeds unsuspecting guests vegetable-based cakes.
She collects books, loves going for walks and picnics with the children and sharing with them her love of nature and photography.
Suzanne is interested in history and enjoys wandering around castles. But most of all she likes to escape with a great film, or soak in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a book.
