Tuesday Intros: John Shors newest!

 posts the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book
 she decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s).
 Feel free to grab the banner and play along!

My Tuesday Intro Pick is John Shors newest release, Temple of a Thousand Faces. I read Cross Currents a few years ago and it the story still resonates with me today. I can't wait to dive into this book later this month!!

Angkor, Late Monsoon Season, 1177
  The temple of Angkor Wat had been designed to house the Hindu Gods but looked as if it had been built by them. Rising from the top of the massive, terraced temple were five towers shaped like lotus buds, the central and tallest of which stretched upward for two hundred feet. These towers symbolized the peaks of Mount Meru, the core of the Hindu universe, where the Gods resided and from where all creation sprang. The wide, square moat surrounding Angkor Wat represented the cosmic ocean, and the walls near the moat were meant to remind Hindus of the mountain ranges at the distant edges of the world.

Would you continue reading this one
 based on the opening paragraph?
