volare welcomes Lost Treasure! || LT Chapters 1 – 10

Not only do we have an old favorite continuing on volare today, we’re also excited to announce the launch of a new mystery and adventure, Lost Treasure, written by 沈苔雅 (Shen Taiya) and translated by Sanguine!

This is a short and sweet novel that fans of Tomb Raider, National Treasure, and Dan Brown novels might enjoy. Sanguine is also a tremendously talented writer and her translations are a joy to read!

From Sanguine herself:

A disappearing gold mine. An old family secret. An army officer carrying a grudge spanning two generations.

As a small time reporter at the local newspaper, Shen Yu already had enough on her plate. Biased managers, check. Long, brutal work hours, check. The department beauty snatching her big story opportunity, check. But now another problem has reared its head and it comes packaged in a young and attractive military officer. He is on the hunt for some legendary space gold and he will get her to help him, whether she likes it or not.

Secrets are abound and Shen Yu soon finds that not everything is not as simple as it seems. Even her own past becomes questionable the more time she spends on the quest. Events from decades ago are rising up to haunt her and she needs to find out the truth before it’s too late. If only she had a better partner.

And from the novel:

Exploration, may not always reveal the real truth.
A gold mine, the object of desire of a lifetime.

The enticing lure of shining gold and the conspiracy surrounding it.
A mysterious, disappearing gold mine and the tangled grudges encompassing two generations.
Let’s see if I, an ordinary girl, can lift the fog and find out the truth!

That young military officer complicates things. The greed of man is nothing new, but why do I need to be pulled into this?

Lost Treasure launches today with 20% of the novel done already, and will be chuggin’ forward with daily releases. Come page through this novella for an easy read on your weekend afternoon~ And please give Sanguine and warm and sparkly welcome!
