The Imagination Station Series Book 2 Attack at the Arena Review

Pin It Now!

 We are huge Adventures in Odyssey fans in our home and homeschool. Books, Audio shows, podcasts and DVDs we love them all.   Alyx has quickly become a big fan of the new The Imagination Station Series, we were lucky enough to review the first book in the Series Voyage with the Vikings, so when I told Alyx that Tyndale was offering the next book in the series he begged me to review it as he wanted to continue on with the adventures. The new book is called Attack at the Arena.
  Here is what the publisher had to say about this book.

Patrick and Beth learn that Mr. Whittaker’s fancy ring can be seen inside the Imagination Station but not outside of the machine. A mysterious letter leads the cousins to fifth-century Rome in search of a special cup that belongs to a monk. If found, the cup could keep the mysterious Albert out of prison.

At the Roman Colosseum, Emperor Honorius is hosting a gladiator battle in celebration of a war victory. Beth attends the event as the emperor’s slave; Patrick attends as a monk’s apprentice but is taken prisoner and sent to fight in the arena. During their adventure, the cousins meet Telemachus (a true historical figure), a monk who believes that fighting is wrong. Telemachus is willing to risk everything—even his life—to stop the killing. When the cousins return with the cup, they find that a third letter has been sent with more information about Albert’s fate.
 It was really no surprise that Alyx fell in love with this book as well. There has not been anything that Adventures in Odyssey puts out that we do not love to listen to or read over and over. There is no worry when it comes to their content that they are appropriate for children of any age. I can feel confident when I chose any product from this company especially books that they are safe for my children. They will learn, morals and character development and these books are no different.
  So if you are having a hard time finding great adventure books for your children or tweens look no further than The Imagination Station Series from Adventures in Odyssey. One chapter and your kids will be as hooked as mine.
 I review books for Tyndale Publishers I am not compensated in any way I am simply provided a Free Copy of the .  I am asked to review but it in no way influences my opinion of the books I am provided.
