Price Value Quality'Sentinel' is the story of Nicholas, a 15-year-old boy who loses both parents tragically and then finds out they had been keeping a major secret from him.
I was captivated by this book from start to finish! I thought the characters were well written and the good guys were easy to like. There was a solid sense of realism making everything feel that much more authentic; from Nicholas' grief at his parents death to a couple of characters coping with a dad with Alzheimer's. The story itself was mysterious with action-packed sequences and a few nicely plotted twists and turns. There were definitely some surprises I did not see coming!
I had no complaints with this book. This was a quick, easy read that kept me intrigued and entertained. There were some very emotional moments and the ending just made me want more! I very much look forward to the next part of this trilogy.
This is suitable for YA readers and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels. The story is excellent and I can't wait to see what happens next!
