I loved it. A great novel with a lot of intrigue, historical base that I did not know. Very well spun. My most sincere congratulations - 06/08/2023
An exciting novel. Addictive from the first moment, a little melancholic and at times chilling. Overwhelming from start to finish. The tension keeps you trapped until the last page. Highlight feelings of friendship and loyalty. Congratulations... - 01/18/2023
After finishing The Stone Lotus I can only say thank you. Thank you for the adventures, for the history learned, for making me dream of visiting those magical places and, above all, thank you for making a few small tears escape me for feeling very identified with a situation that is quite common today and that many ignore. - 01/11/2023

I found the novel The Stone Lotus very interesting, not only because of the theme but also because of the recreation of modern Vietnam and during the war with the United States. It has also been original for me to associate certain passages with some songs, as well as to put the coordinates of the places where the action takes place - 11/30/2022
I liked it a lot. And obviously, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the novel. The first chapter with a lot of action, has reminded me of the scenes of Jason Bourne in Morocco. The change in style with respect to the Mark of Odin saga, does not detract, it leaves me wanting more.
So far a very good start. The personality, past and motivations of the protagonist are well exposed and it lays the foundations well for what I imagine will be the two axis on which the story will revolve. I've been wanting to read more, and I'll look forward to the book being available. Very good job so far.
Great start that makes you want more, I look forward to the rest of the story.
Eager to continue reading to continue connecting all the open mysteries... I like the rhythm of the chapters which encourages you to continue reading.
In The Stone Lotus, readers will follow in the footsteps of Intelligence officer Carla Romero Vázquez to discover what really happened to her grandfather, Medical Captain Alberto Romero de Soto.
