Our redheaded Treasure Seekers are back in a new place and time. Tommy has gone off on his own to an old castle in Romania to investigate some magical paintings, and has sent word for Nelly to join him. Supposedly he has found the secret of the Philosopher’s Stone, a magical artifact that can turn lead to gold, among many other things. Nelly is not comfortable with the idea of her younger brother investigating such a mysterious case on his own. Romania has a dark past, and when dealing with magic in such a place, the risks are huge. Nelly goes to Totenkraft Castle to meet up with Tommy, but he is nowhere to be found. She finds her passage blocked by some paintings, and in each painting are people who are in need of her help. From ghosts to genies and more, Nelly’s only wish is to find her brother safe and sound, and the people she assists give her clues to help her along her way.
I found Treasure Seekers: The Enchanted Canvases to be a bit easier than Treasure Seekers: Visions of Gold, but very entertaining, if not more so, due to the magical paintings. Things were a bit easier to see, and the puzzles were different. So far the Treasure Seekers series has been really great. Looking forward to the next one!
