Challenge on the Hill of Fire Marianne Hering, Nancy I. Sanders (Review)

  • Age Range: 6 - 9 years
  • Series: AIO Imagination Station Books (Book 10)
  • Paperback: 144 pages
  • Publisher: Focus on the Family (December 20, 2012)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1589976948

Kidnapped by Celtic Druids in 433, Patrick and Beth are headed to certain death when followers of a former Irish Slave (Saint Patrick, called Patritius in this book) save them. The cousins find themselves in the midst of a power struggle between Ireland’s King Logaire, Patritius, and the leader of the Druids, Lochru. A spiritual showdown begins on the Hill of Slane when Patritius builds a fire, challenging the King’s authority. Will Patritius prove to the king that the God of the Bible is the true God? Or will the king take sides with the Druids? The Emerald Isle holds many tales and legends, but this story of truth and standing strong for God is not one to be missed.

My Review:

I thought this was a good historical action adventure kids book with a spiritual twist. It is part of the Imagination Station series but this book stands alone plot wise. The focus of this book is the story of St. Patrick. Patrick and Beth are two children that live in Whit's End and take trips in the Imagination Station. There is always a lesson they learn in these books. Children will need help reading them. I actually enjoy reading this series. They are engaging and have good characters and plot. Recommended mainly for Christian families.
