A Superb Read,
This review is from: A Sudden Dawn: A Martial Arts Novel: 1 (Paperback)
Breathtaking! I read into the early hours of the morning of my karate grading because I couldn't put this novel down.
The saying goes that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but in the case of Goran Powell's A Sudden Dawn the stunning illustration is a perfect reflection of the imagery this book evokes.
This beautifully written story, a blend of well researched historical fact and gripping fiction, will take you back in time as you travel with Bodhidharma from India, over the Himalayas and across China to the Shaolin temple.
Inspiring, enlightening, funny and sad, the journey and its characters will stay with you long after you turn the last page.
