  • Age Range: 8 - 12 years
  • Grade Level: 3 and up

  • Publisher: Tyndale Kids (April 25, 2005)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1414301402


Watch out! The Timberline twins are on the loose. Bryce and Ashley are ATV-riding tweens from Colorado who unearth action-packed mystery and adventure wherever they go. From clearing the name of a local miscreant to thwarting a gold-stealing heist, the twins' growing faith and the strong example of their parents guide them through even the most life-threatening situations. With the trademark page-turner style used by Jerry Jenkins and Chris Fabry in the Left Behind: The Kids series, these fast-paced books will keep even reluctant readers on the edge of their seats. Readers will definitely get hooked by the unbelievable cliff-hanger at the end of book one, Haunted Waters. Perfect for ages 8-12.

 My Review:

I read these with my girl cousin. She really enjoyed the series until she outgrew them. I thought the plots were interesting too. The faith element is worked in nicely. There is mystery, faith, family, and adventure. Younger children might need help reading them. The ending could be frustrating if you do not have book two handy. It is a series worth investing a few books in if your children like these kinds of books.
