 When Serah’s life in Havenbrim becomes unbearable, she accepts an apprenticeship with a celestial mechanic and glazier. Her master assigns her the task of opening a globe framed in copper. But the glass and seal are unbreakable. The solution to the puzzle traps Serah inside the globe, and transports her to a world where she longs for home.

Beacon by Chess Desalls (Lantern, #2)

Does Machin have a feel for finding the lost and lonely children of Havenbrim? There clearly is something kind within the mysterious celestial mechanic and glazier’s soul as another forlorn teen comes to his door in search of the coveted apprentice position that will provide food and shelter for the one he chooses.

Serah has been tossed from her home by her stepmother. Alone, homeless and without food, she timidly approaches the door of the Master Machin’s shop, determined to show him how willing she is to work. When given the job, her greatest fear is making a false move and losing the master’s favor. But need she worry? She must dust the lanterns while pondering one question: how does the light get in the lanterns? What Serah will find is this is more than a mysterious puzzle. It is the question she will be able to answer in the most unexpected way as she is taken to another place and time, only to find that she does not belong and never will. It is through a magic portal that she will find her way home, back to Havenbrim, but will things be the same? Why has she come back when others have not?

Master Machin works in strange ways and author Chess Desalls has once again, brought a heart-warming tale of another life changed by the magical man. BEACON is another short, but magnetic read that brings the magic of words and the worlds they create to life. Another warm read filled with the magic of Chess Desalls’ imagination that shines like a diamond!

I received this copy from Chess Desalls in exchange for my honest review.
