Book review: Attack at the Arena by Paul McCusker & Marianne Hering

List Price: 4.99 
ISBN: 978-1-58997-628-3 

About the 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.

My thoughts:
Attack at the Arena is book two in the Imagination Station series. If you love the Adventures in Odyssey then you will love these books. These books are a great price at only 4.99 and perfect for ages 7and up! If you are homeschooling you can use these books for second grade. I really enjoyed the adventure in this book and that they used a real historical figure. I am looking forward to having the complete series for my son. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this book from Tyndale Publishers for my honest review.
