Revenge of the Red Knight {Book #4} Adventures In Odyssey by Marianne Hering *Paul McCusker

Book Description:  In this Imagination Station adventure, Patrick and Beth find themselves as guests in a beautiful castle in 15th-century England. Through a series of events, the steward of Lord Darkthorn’s castle finds the cousins with three artifacts collected in their previous adventures: the stone, the cup, and the golden tablet. They are accused of being thieves and locked in jail. Beth escapes and discovers the identity of the real thief, leading to a jousting contest with a surprising outcome. Set during the War of the Roses in England, Revenge of the Red Knight will teach readers about the Crusades, the integrity of knights and the vows they took, and why men would choose to risk their lives to fight for Christianity.

My Thoughts ~ Guest Reviewer (my 11 year old son):  Not realizing that Tyndale would so generously send me two books we were thrilled to also receive Revenge of the Red Knight.  My eleven year old son picked this book up first and said, "COOL!  Knights!!" He told me, "This book is about the knights, honor and keeping God in your life.  I liked the part where the Tournament took place and Sir Andrew prayed and God heard him."  If you're familiar with Adventures In  Odyssey then you may remember the story of Whit and Dillon in Knight Travellers.  Whit is accidentally knocked out and Dillon must fight the "bad" knight."  Well, this is not that story but it sure ran along the same lines.  
It action packed and filled with adventure.  So much adventure that your preteen son may want the whole set of books to read . . . all summer!
We loved both of these books!  And these make great reads for your child's summer reading fun!
Remember, as the back of the book says, "The key to adventure lies within your imagination!"
