Moraturi Lost: Paradisi Chronicles (Lost Mission Series Book 2)

Moraturi Lost: Paradisi Chronicles (Lost Mission Series Book 2)Moraturi Lost: Paradisi Chronicles by Marti Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A well-written sci-fi adventure with perfect pacing...

Forty-some years ago my uncle gave me a science fiction anthology. It was a thick red hardback that I read from cover to cover. It inspired a lifelong love of the genre. The stories in that book made me think outside the box. They filled me with awe for the imagination it took to write them. That book still remains in my collection today. The title is OMNIBUS OF SCIENCE FICTION, edited by Groff Conklin, a well-known and prolific editor of the genre. It was published in 1952, the Golden Age of Science Fiction. It’s a substantial volume, 562 pages, with 43 stories divided into sections relating to a common theme. Some stories are fun, some are thought-provoking, and some are adventurous. I love them all.

Moraturi Lost: Paradisi Chronicles (Lost Mission Series Book 2) by Marti Ward is a superb follow up to the first book in this series: Casindra Lost: Paradisi Chronicles (Lost Mission Series Book 1). It’s another wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn settings and characters. The threads of storytelling are expertly woven in this sci-fi adventure that will guarantee the attention of the reader.

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a well-written sci-fi adventure with perfect pacing. Highly recommended and looking forward to the next instalment MORATURI RING, Book 3.
