The Shadow Lantern (The Blackhope Enigma, #3)
I enjoyed the Shadow Lantern by Teresa Flavin. The story follows Sunni and Blaise as they discover an old lantern and painted slides that were painted by a Renaissance artist-magician Fausto Corvo. Time travel into the past and enchanted paintings are included in the adventures of the two teens.
After I started to read the book, I realized it was part of a series. At first, I thought I was going to be confused, but there were enough references made between the 2 main characters to understand what they were doing in this book. It's always a good idea to read a series in order, but unlike others who have reviewed this book, I did not have a problem reading this as a stand alone. I would definitely recommend this and the series to young teens and up.
The first two books of this series are The Blackhope Enigma and The Crimson Shard.
