The heroine, Eve, is incredible. She discovers that she possesses amazing powers, but they come with an enormous responsibility: saving the world. Wow! She reacted better than I would have to that news. Eve is both brave and adorable.
In addition to the powers and the "save the world" storyline is a young romance between Eve and her best friend, the handsome hybrid Seth. Half-human and half-Guardian, Seth is fully committed to Eve.
I truly adored The Sentinel for the action, the twists, the surprises, and the relationships between the characters. I will definitely read Holly Martin's next book. If you want a suspenseful, thrilling, and romantic read, this is the book for you.
You need to grab your seat belt and buckle up because from the first page, the action starts and NEVER LETS UP! You are in a speeding car, so to speak, going from adventure to adventure in an entire new world created by the author, Holly Martin. Ms. Martin's mind must be an amazing place to be--for she created this whole fantasy world rich with layers, action, and intrigue. It's a book that is hard to put down, and you are left wanting more at the end.
What is this fast paced YA story? The Sentinel is the story of Eve, who is involved in a terrifying bus crash in the first page of the book. When Eve is rescued, her world is upended with the revelation that nothing in her life is as it seems. She is, in fact, The Sentinel--the girl who has been created to save the world, and everyone around her--family, friends, teachers--is actually her Guardians who are designed to protect her, including her best friend, Seth.
With this revelation, Eve's entire reality has changed. But there is no time to process it, as her life is threatened by those who want to kill her, those who do not share the beliefs of the Guardians. Now that the secret is out, Eve begins to learn to use her powers and learn her destiny...as well as the price that is to be paid by being The Sentinel...
I absolutely LOVED this book. Ms. Martin did a wonderful job of creating this world, and explaining to the reader the different groups and their powers and beliefs.Read more ›
Eve is a normal seventeen year old girl on her way back from a school skiing holiday in France. Everything is seemingly average until the coach she is travelling on ends up dangling over the edge of a cliff. Two of her teachers rush to help Eve to safety but Eve is confused: why are they so focused on rescuing Eve and no one else on the bus? Things start to get even stranger as her teachers have the ability to hold the bus and stop it from falling and as Eve soon discovers, so does she.
Very quickly she becomes aware the two teachers are called Guardians and that they are there to protect her at all costs. When she returns home it soon becomes apparent that everyone around her is there to protect her. Even her dog, Quinn. Slowly she unravels the mystery and finds out the reason why she needs to be protected and why people are out to get her.
This book hooked me, from the second I started reading I couldn’t put it down. I even read it whilst I ate my breakfast this morning and I ended up trying to put a spoonful of cereal up my nose. I was dubious about starting this book at first because even though I’ve seemingly fallen massively in love with the fantasy genre, I was worried this book would confuse me and leave me back at square one. I needn’t have worried for this book was so engrossing and wrapped it’s large arms tightly around me. Everything was explained perfectly which meant I was able to follow the story extremely easily and do a lot of gasping and swearing when things started happening!
The plot moved at an alarming pace which kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.Read more ›
The story was very well written and had lots of action. The thing is for me is I just cannot get into it. It is written for the YA crowd not that that usually matters to me. Maybe it was simply that I was sick while reading the story and just not in the right frame of mind.
None the less I would recommend it to those that like the genre.
In many ways the story line is fresh and keeps you guessing.
I believe this is Holly Martin's first book of "The Sentinel Series".....
Holly you have me hooked and am waiting to buy your next book in this series. Please keep writing!!!
