Helen Garraway was born in Berkshire and has lived in the royal county all her life. “Sentinals Awaken” is an amazing first book by Helen. Her characters are three-dimensional, descriptions well crafted and the fantasy world fully developed. She is an avid reader, especially of fantasy and some sci-fi.
