Secrets of the Lost Caves -Book Two of the Potluck Yarn Trilogy by Cheryl Potter {Written by Emilee}

Since I read Book One of the Potluck Yarn Trilogy, I had the opportunity of reading Book Two
Secrets of the Lost Caves
by Cheryl Potter
Continuing the adventure begun in The Broken Circle, Secrets of the Lost Caves starts just as the Circle of Twelve is complete, but it is soon broken again and the desperate race to find the Lost Caves and unlock the Secrets of the Crystal Caverns begins. Who will discover it first? The Dark Queen and her Kindred Spirit? The party of Six plus One with addled Lavender Mae as their guide? Or Aubergine, the Potluck Queen with the help of Second Sight Sierra and Trader turned Teal? We soon learn that Mamie Verde has not drifted peacefully to the Land of Dreams, but is reborn high above the lost city of old Tigeria, deep within the Northland Glacier to assume guardianship of the Ancients, twenty years too late. And in the war torn Middlelands, nothing is certain but the power of the Fire and Ice Shawl, the need to make the amethyst necklace whole and the necessity of possessing both halves of the Skell of House Crystal Keep. Follow the continuing adventures of the Fossick boys and knitting witches as they journey north to the windswept Out Crops to ally with Hed Clansmen and lift the curse of the Glacier Born in an attempt to reawaken the Magic of Men.
In my opinion:
If there is an advanced readers club, Secrets of the lost caves would fit its profile. It was deep, detailed and one can get lost in its pages. I loved how Cheryl Potter summed up Book 1 and included a list of characters as well as a map so one can follow along throughout the book. I tend to have a hard time when there are numerous characters so I was grateful for the explanations of each character.
This book had many adventures including the race to find the Lost Caves. Who will discover the caves first? Well, I was definitely surprised in the end and loved how complex and unpredictable it was. Cheryl is a brilliant writer and has a wild and impressive imagination. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a well-plotted fantasy. It offers a great escape but you will need to read Book 1 of the Potluck Yarn Trilogy to really understand the story.
 Disclaimer: I received one or more of the products or services for free in the hope that I would mention them on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
