This sequel to The Blackhope Enigma is imbued with alchemy and intrigue.
During what seems like an ordinary museum visit, tour guide Throgmorton lures Sunni and Blaise through a painted doorway into eighteenth-century London. When Throgmorton demands secret information from the pair about their Blackhope escapades, they attempt to flee, encountering body snatchers, art thieves and forgers in this gripping time-travel adventure.
About the Author
Teresa Flavin took three years to complete the text, plus the accompanying maps and illustrations for Blackhope Enigma. When she is not writing or illustrating, Teresa leads school art workshops, makes paintings and hand-made books, travels to far-flung places with her geographer husband, hikes in the Scottish hills and walks every labyrinth she can find.
The plot moved along at a splendid pace and many readers will hope to learn more of the Fausto Corvo story and his mystical paintings in the future.
