Hey everybody. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful festive season. I spent most of mine in edits on the third book in the Sentinel Trilogy, but don’t feel sorry for me – it was super fun and challenging in all the right ways. (And yes, I found time to chow down on plenty of turkey and mince pies.)
As we close out 2017 and look ahead to 2018, I thought it was time to share a bit more information about the third and final book in the trilogy. In fact, I’m just going to let the cat out of the bag completely and throw the book’s title at you. So… *deep breath, try not to panic* I’m excited to announce that the third book in The Sentinel Trilogy is called…
Yep, there it is, all official! We’ve had Sentinel, then Ruins, so now it’s time for Splinter. I’ll be honest, it took me a while to settle on this. It’s surprisingly difficult to come up with a single word that encapsulates everything about a story, from its themes and narrative twists to the journey of the characters (oops, spoiler!), but Splinter fits perfectly and I’m relieved I don’t have to worry about it anymore!
Alright, so while we’re all about revealing stuff, wanna take a peek at the synopsis as well? (I don’t know what’s come over me. Must be all the gift-giving over the past few weeks.) Anywho, before I wimp out, here’s the official synopsis for Splinter…
The critically acclaimed Sentinel Trilogy comes to a thrilling conclusion in this final instalment of the dark fantasy series.
The world is falling apart around Nicholas Hallow. Amid rumours that the Dark Prophets have returned, a deathly gloom pollutes England, unleashing a savage hoard of nightmare creatures. Fighting the tide of evil, Nicholas returns home to Cambridge, where an old ally helps him seek out the mysterious Skurkwife, who could help Nicholas stop Malika for good.
Meanwhile, Sam Wilkins unites the Sentinels against the forces of darkness, but with Jessica’s sanity slipping, and Isabel suspicious of her shadowy past, it’s a battle that could cost the Sentinels everything…
OK, I think I need to go and have a lie down. Thanks for your continued support with the world of Sentinel, it really means so much to me.
Expect more updates on Splinter in the coming months, including an official release date and (gulp) a cover.
May the Trinity bless you,
