Product Description

Review

Descriptions are rich.
--Kirkus Reviews

The third and final volume of the Blackhope series begins with some engaging realistic scenes with Sunni and Blaise before the teens step into the chaotic fantasy realm, where their relationship becomes secondary to their quest and their survival. A surprise near the end offers a satisfying twist for Blackhope fans.

Format: Paperback
Reviewed by author K. M. Lockwood on Serendipity Reviews

As can be seen from the attractive cover, this darkly supernatural mystery story will please many readers who love art and magic. Ideally, you need to be good at imagining strange settings, and slipping in and out of different times. It will help if you enjoy books where the point of view shifts so you can see the action from different angles, and you're happy with a complex plot.

The main struggle involves a raft of characters, all of whom are after a set of magical paintings. There are ghosts and skeletons and a cat that can see strange things - not to mention the weird paintings themselves. There is also a nicely drawn relationship strand - but it's not over-dominant.

It is the end of the trilogy begun with The Blackhope Enigma and continued with The Crimson Shard. I haven't read the other two - but I didn't need to. The author has made a great effort to make sure the reader knows the relevant events from the earlier novels. Similarly, although the contemporary part of the story has a Scottish setting, it could be read by any English speaker from Hawaii to The Philippines without confusion.

It is a story full of striking images- and this is further developed by the use of Teresa Flavin's own illustrations in the text. Other publishers take note - in a world of graphic novels and highly visual media, this really adds to the book as a whole.

Confident readers of nine and over who like unravelling mysteries and exploring eerie worlds full of artistic creepiness may well enjoy all three books in sequence.

Format: Paperback
Sunni and Blaise are projected to another of Corvo's magical worlds courtesy of an old oil lamp and painted slides. Inside the Shadowlands, they become enmeshed in a dangerous mission to protect the artist magician's enchanted paintings. Pursued by the evil villain, Soranzo, who seeks possession of the enchanted paintings, the plot twists and turns as the vivid narrative unfolds.
This is an exciting story, brimming with drama and intrigue. As the plot thickens, the tentative relationship between Sunni and Blaise also develops, resulting in a satisfying resolution. The Shadow Lantern is an intoxicating adventure story with strong, convincing characters.
