The Lens and the Looker (The Verona Trilogy book 1)

By Lory S. Kaufman

CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2013. Book. Very Good. Soft cover. Signed by Author(s). 3rd Edition.. My review: The Lens and the Looker, book #1 in The Verona Trilogy, is a young adult SF/fantasy. It is interesting at the beginning and it quickly becomes a book that is hard to put down. This book is written well and is easy to follow. One thing I dislike about many science fiction and fantasy novels is that they are complicated and it's difficult to picture the creatures or different worlds but that wasn't the case in The Lens and the Looker. Time travel is not a new concept but the circumstances that these characters are in aren't common ones. The characters are well developed and complicated. The three main characters, Hansum, Shamira, and Lincoln, do a lot of growing up in the time that the book covers. All three are "problem" teens to begin with but they all quickly show their true colors and you can't help but like them. I recommend The Lens and the Looker for young adults as well as adults..

The Bronze and the Brimstone (The Verona Trilogy book 2)

By Lory S. Kaufman

CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2013. Book. Very Good. Soft cover. Signed by Author(s). 3rd Edition.. My review: The Bronze and the Brimstone is the second book in the Verona Trilogy which is young adult science fiction/fantasy. It starts where The Lens and the Looker leaves off and it was one of those books that I stayed up reading all night because I couldn't put it down. The Bronze and the Brimstone is well written and easy to follow. It has a lot of twists and turns. And what an ending! The characters are well described. The main characters, Hansum, Shamira, and Lincoln continue to grow. There were times that I was concerned about Hansum, though. It seemed like he was growing to be more like the men he worked for and was losing sight of who he really was. I definitely recommend The Bronze and the Brimstone for young adults as well as adults. I'm looking forward to reading the last book in the trilogy, The Loved and the Lost..
