A do-not-put-this-book-down action packed read

White Lotus is an awesome book that is hard to put down. It is an action packed, non-stop adventure that grabbed me from the start. The well-crafted characters are introduced in a way that made me wonder if they were going to be goodies or baddies, which kept me guessing as the story progressed.

Seb Cielens is a great story teller and has written a book so enthralling that you wish it was longer!

Gripping epic fantasy a great read

Seb Cielens is a master of menace with his page-turning debut, ‘White Lotus’. Set in imperial Korea, it is the first in a trilogy featuring complex young characters navigating their fates in harrowing times. Ambition, intrigue and corruption are vividly set as trials for the heroes - Kyetsu, Yun-li and her father, General Hyo. The Asian setting is strongly evoked through sights, smells and sounds of ancient Seoul. Disciplined martial arts training and its use are inspirational, a great antidote to feeling dispirited during the pandemic. This new YA fantasy series, with strong female and male warriors, holds a surprising number of laughs. Can’t wait for the next instalment!
