Disclosure: I received this products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.

Secrets of the Lost Caves

As some of you know, I am a big reader. I love being able to read books from a variety of different authors in just about any genre. My personal favorite though, is Fantasy and Sci-Fi. When I heard that a book I fell in love with in 2014, The Broken Circle, had a sequel, I was pretty excited! As soon as my advance reader copy came in the mail, I immediately sat down with a cup of tea and started getting Cherryl Potter’s latest book – Secrets of the Lost Caves.

Secrets of the Lost Caves (Potluck Yarn Trilogy 2): What Is it

Looking for a fun, innovative fantasy book perfect for young adults? If so, we think you will love the second book of the Potluck Yarn series, Secrets of the Last Caves. For those who are fans of the first book in the series, The Broken Circle, we think you will fall in love with the series all over again. Below, we have what you can find on the back of this book to give you a taste of this adventure…

“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.”

Secrets of the Lost Caves (Potluck Yarn Trilogy 2): Overall

Personally, I thought this book was as well written as Cherryl Potter’s first book in the series. As someone who enjoys fantasy, I was happy to see another creative, fun fantasy series continued, especially one designed for young adults. That being said, it is important that you read the first book before jumping into Secrets of the Lost Caves since it does jump in right where the previous book left over. Overall, I think it a good, fun read for adults and teenagers alike! Based on my own experience, I am happy to give Secrets of the Lost Caves an A rating!

    I love reading and have been looking for a fun series that I can read with my kids. I have never heard of this series, but after reading your review, I think that I may have to order the first two books and give it a try.

    I’ll have to tell my daughter about these books. I really want her to read the His Dark Materials books. I love sci fi and fantasy too. My favorite author is Neil Gaiman, and I hear he is thinking about writing a sequel to “American Gods.” Best of luck on the novel you are writing!

    I’m also an avid reader of just about any genre except horror. I was just thinking I’d like to get something other then the romance and histrical fiction I’ve been reading. This sounds like asn exciting & intriguing read. Thanks for your review.

    That does sounds like a fun read for young people. I have a grand son that’s just about the right age for this.

    I enjoy reading fantasy novels myself. I would read this one, but when it comes to reading books in a series, I need to have all the books in the set, I don’t like long pauses between books. Thank you for sharing this review.
