The Bronze and the Brimstone-YA –Lory S. Kaufman

This is the sequel to The Lens and the Looker. My review can be found under the subject books on the left side of my blog. It is the 2nd book in the History Camp series. It is every bit as good and entertaining. It is filled with action, predicaments and love. Of course Pan, our friendly troublemaking genie is still in residence trying his darndest to keep these teens from serious trouble—but do teens ever listen—of course not! They have to learn things on their own. This series (one more to go) will definitely be liked by both boys and girls and adults. I REALLY suggest you read both these books and then let your teens read it (you might not get it back if they read it first!!).

From the back of the book:

What could go wrong in the 14th century for three time-traveling teens? How about – EVERYTHING!

Hansum, Shamira and Lincoln, three teens from the 24th century, are trapped in 14th century Verona, Italy. They’ve survived many deadly experiences by keeping their wits about them and by introducing futuristic technology into the past. Principal among these inventions is the telescope, which brought them to the attention of the rich and powerful.

But standing out can get you into unexpected and dangerous situations. The nobles of Verona now believe Hansum is a savant, a genius inventor, especially since he brings them plans for advanced cannons and black powder. Being the center of attention is great, but the potential for trouble is now exponentially greater because people are watching Hansum’s every move.

Meanwhile, artistic genus Shamira has fallen for a Florentine artist with bloody and disasterous consequences. Lincoln, considered an incompetent back home in the 24th century, has blossomed—at least until he is shot in the head with an arrow. And Hansum, after secretly marrying his new master’s beautiful daughter, Guilietta, is offered the hand in marriage of lady Beatrice, daughter of the ruler of Verona. To refuse could mean calamity for all the teens.

Amazingly, none of this is their biggest challenge. Because a rash illness is spreading across Verona—and it is threatening to consume everyone

Do they have a future in this past?

That is not my normal type of book to read by the sounds of it. I am trying to discover new things to read so I will add it to my list.

My sister likes reading stories like this.


They should make a movie out of these series. It could become a HIT.
