The Stone Lotus is the first independent fiction novel from the creator of the Mark of Odin saga, Xavier Marcé.
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.
