Another really good installment in the Mystery of the Makers series by Aten

Review of ‘The Lost Temple of Psiere’ by K. Aten

This was another really good installment in the Mystery of the Makers series by Aten. The election really messed up my reading this week. I couldn’t read, I couldn’t sleep, and I was a mess. I’m just so happy that it’s over and the weight that was sitting on me is gone so I can finally start reading again. I figured the best way to get back into the groove would be to read a new book from one of my favorite authors. I wanted a book that would really engage me and keep my mind from being distracted by outside things, and I also wanted something fun. I’m happy to say that this book was all the things I was looking for and more.

This is the second book of the Mystery of the Makers series by Aten. These books hit a lot of different genres but the best way to describe them would be adventure-fantasy books with a baby hint of sci-fi. Take Tomb Raider and mix it with Indiana Jones, then put them on a planet that is still developing so that the society is living in a steampunk like era. The point is if you like WLW adventure books, this series is for you. If you are new to the series I would HIGHLY recommend reading book one, ‘The Sovereign of Psiere’ first. This is a series that needs to be read in order as this book answers many questions from the first. The characters evolve and the storyline does too and I don’t think it would be nearly as enjoyable if you started with book 2.

This book is on the longer side. Goodreads says only 350 pages but according to my Kindle it was more like 500. I’m guessing that page number is more for the physical book. Regal has some of the biggest books I have ever seen. They are even bigger than Bella and BSB, so that might be why it says 350. Anyway, my one slight issue with this book is I did think it went a little long in parts, mostly when they were trying to discover the lost temple. All of it was interesting to read, I just think I would have edited some parts out to move on a little quicker.

The Indiana Jones character of this book is the princess, and next in line to rule, so she has a military unit around to protect her on these adventures. There were times I felt like Aten had written unneeded dialogue or scenes for the secondary members on the team. But because she took the time to do these extra scenes, the secondary characters become more real and turned into actual individuals instead of just a blob of protector-like characters. So while I would have personally cut out a bit more, I can see the trade-off for why Aten kept the length.

This was a bit of a bridge book. Don’t worry, there is still plenty of excitement but it really seems to be a book that supports the first and the third book to come. This book answers a ton of questions from the first which was really nice to have answered. This book also sets up the third, and maybe final, book perfectly. I don’t want to give anything away but I think the third book is going to be explosive. I think it will be action-packed, intense, but also really entertaining. I honestly cannot wait.

I almost forgot to mention, for any WLW romance fans out there you will not be disappointed. The couple of the Princess and her Commander is great and you can’t help but root for them. They have a strong connection but their relationship will be tested. Will Olivienne and Castellan make it as a couple? Well, you’ll just have to read the book to find out what happens.

This is a great fantasy-adventure series that I easily recommend. I have so much fun reading this series and it was exactly the distraction and entertainment that I needed right now. If you are interested in this series please read book one ‘The Sovereign of Psiere’, first. Reading order is very important in this series. I’m really excited for the next installment and hopefully, Aten won’t make us wait too long. 4.25 Stars.
