"Beacon (Lantern #2) by Chess Desalls is a wondrous novella whose magical realism will captivate and delight readers of all ages. A wonderful, wonderful read! Chess Desalls is incredibly talented with descriptive language and giving the reader an idea of where characters are and what exactly they are doing. Desalls is an expert when it comes to world building, seamlessly immersing you in a story rich with sensory details and descriptions that make you feel as though you’re standing right alongside Serah herself. Serah is a character you cannot help but root for. As you read and learn more about this universe, you will find yourself admiring Serah’s strength and the way she aims to accomplish whatever task is put before her. As Desalls notes, Beacon (Lantern #2) is not a continuation of Lantern and can be read as a standalone novella; however, you will find that reading Beacon is like unlocking the door to the Lantern universe and taking a peek inside - you can’t help but want to push open that door and find out more."
Beacon is a novella for teens and tweens set in the worlds of Lantern. It's not a continuation of Tori and Jared's story, and it can be read as a standalone. Lantern is free for Kindle, Nook, iBooks, and Wattpad.
