A crown. A church. A ship buried underwater for centuries. And the power that awaits…
England in 1940 is marked by blackouts, air raids and the threat of enemy bombs. Yet, in pastoral Duncaster, against the backdrop of awe-inspiring cliffs and a roiling sea, reporter Rachel Rubin fights an adversary more deadly than the Germans: a foe that only she can see, it seems.
According to legend, King Redwald’s treasure is in Duncaster and is protected by a foul curse. Believing in old folk tales is utter nonsense to the true blue American Rachel … until she starts having disturbing dreams and seeing ghosts!
As the danger escalates, more chilling events occur. Rachel races against time to discover the truth. She doesn’t know who to trust, but one thing is certain-- the bodies are piling up and Doomsday looms on Duncaster’s watery horizon!

Good story, and a fairly unique one, too. Enjoyed this book. The writing is good, the plot made sense, and the protagonist was likable. Nice twist on ancient curses, ghosts, and paranormal abilities. Not too scary. It's a good read and I recommend it.
Sentinels did not disappoint - it would be an absorbing and pleasurably creepy tale for anyone, but it is great fun to read if you are a big fan of M.R.James' ghost stories. the book has a strong, likeable and very un-Jamesian protagonist in Rachel Rubin, an American reporter. There were some beautifully done dramatic moments .
