The Garden of Stones by Mark T. Barnes

The Garden of Stones - Mark Barnes

Read by Tiffany - Takes an investment of initial focus to properly immerse in the new world Mark opens for the reader - richly rewarded as the story flows strongly and compellingly. The characters, races, landscape and relationships are woven vividly for the reader.  Strong themes of honour, loyalty, pre-destiny, and the forging of one’s own path are intertwined in the stories of each character, with a couple of nice twists along the way. Reminiscent of Noble House / Tai Pan by James Clavell. I am very much looking forward to the next instalment.
