“The new characters slotted in seamlessly and really strengthened the storyline. I especially enjoyed the suspicion and mystery wrapped up in the fantasy packaging. This went deeper than the other novels and has taken a great deal of thought, care and attention. The sub-storylines and the testing of each character’s beliefs was excellent. The twists and turns had me hanging onto every word. I didn’t want to put the book down. This book is a masterclass in how to create engaging characters in fantastical settings. It’s the best book yet. I do hope that there will be a follow-on.” Annette Young - The Creative Competitor.
“I have had the privilege of reading all six books of the Lodestone series. To me the way the author wrapped up the series is brilliant. The author is a bit of a poet and philosopher. I found tears running down my face as I was reading the last chapter.” Sandra Heptinstall - Midwest Book Review.
“Mark Whiteway's gifts go far beyond creating alien landscapes and imaginative technology. His complex characters and rich plots continue to fascinate long after the properties of lodestone have settled into the background. “What stands out for me is the author's ability to take two alien beings, each as completely different from one another as they are from my human experience, and leave me feeling their connection to one another." Terence P Ward - Allbooks Review.
