‘The Lost Temple of Psiere’ is the second in the Mystery of the Makers series by K Aten, and although I didn’t think it possible, it’s even better than the first. K Aten has imagined a world both familiar and foreign and her world-building is exquisite. Olivienne, Royal Connate and heir to the throne of Psiere, is on a mission to find out more about the Makers. Where did they come from, who were they – and what role did they have to play in the history of Psiere? Now getting closer to her goal, she plans another trip with her Shield team and her lover, Castellan Tosh. But threats to their mission and to the future stability of Psiere bring danger and peril.
I love the innovative use of language in the Psiere stories. It immerses the reader in the world and I’d forgotten just how must I enjoyed being there. The story is full of adventure, tension, wonder and passion. It is stunning. There were some amazing revelations and so much more I wanted to know. I must admit to gasping in surprise a few times. I can’t wait for the next in the series!
I was given this ARC for review.
