Sentinals Awaken is the debut novel of the author Helen Garraway. Protagonist of the story is Jerrol Haven. The story is set in Vespiri. Jerrol is the captain of the King’s Rangers. According to the legends, Lady Leyandrii’s Sentinals, her personal guards, had all vanished with her when she sundered the Bloodstone and
brought down the Veil nearly three thousand years ago. Now, after three thousand years Jerrol thinks that all this is a myth. A man can’t live in a tree for three thousand years.
Jerrol was unaware of the gift that he possess. By touching a Sentinals tree, he awoke Birlerion, one of the Lady’s personal guard. When Jerrol was running from the Old Vespers to save his life, it was Lady Leyandrii who rescued him. Now, the Lady needs Jerrol’s help to save the world of Remargaren. Will they be successful?
This is a great fantasy story with nice world building. It is the debut novel of the author but the writing is so polished that it didn’t felt like a debut one. Character development is nice and the plot is so intriguing that I enjoyed every bit of this novel.
The map given at the beginning of the book helped in getting a better idea of the places mentioned in the story. Overall, it’s a good story and I like to recommend it to my fellow readers.
My Rating 4.5/5
