M A R T I N   O W T O N
Fantasy and Science Fiction writer

I am Martin Owton, I write fantasy and science fiction stories and novels. I am represented by Ian Drury of Sheil Land Associates.

The two books of my secondary world adventure fantasy duology Exile and Nandor (collectively The Nandor Tales) are available from Amazon:
- Exile
- Nandor
There is an audiobook available of Exile.

Best-selling author Mark Lawrence said of Exile: "I enjoyed the story. It was sword-swinging, castle climbing, hard drinking fun".
His whole review may be found here along with others. Reviews of Nandor are here.

Return to Nandor
Less than a year ago, Aron of Darien risked his life to deliver Nandor from its enemies. Now a new peril threatens; Lady Celaine is abducted and the bonds of friendship and honour demand Aron returns once again serve the Earl of Nandor. The road to rescue leads them to the infamous city of Keshan and, beyond to a war zone where they face a barbarian horde. For Aron the stakes are higher than ever as he faces demons and traitors and a decision that will change his life.
