Imagination Station Books

September 18, 2012
There's also been a fair amount of news from the Imagination Station book series that we haven't reported.

Imagination-station8-front.jpg

First up is book 8 Battle for Cannibal Island. As some of you may notice this is a new title, it was formally "Battle for the Mysterious Island" and before that "Mystery of Starlight Island", this third title will likely stick though as it's nearing release. The cover has also been updated with the new title and slightly revised art. Here's the summary for the book

Patrick and Beth are hurled into the South Pacific during the 1840s and take part in a breathtaking search for the mysterious Starlight Island. The cousins join the clever Scottish pirate hunter Captain Connor Glenn and the crew of the flagship Saint Andrew’s Lance as they hunt the infamous pirate Captain Tobias Dredd. Their search leads them to the emerald-green islands of Fiji, where they attempt to rescue missionary William Cross. But Captain Dredd’s forces attack the island, and Patrick and Cross are kidnapped. Beth and Captain Glenn must save them, but it’s a race against time. And the only hopes they have of finding the Starlight Island rest in their trust in God and a broken telescope that just might reveal more than meets the eye.

Next up is Book 9 Escape to the Hiding Place

Join cousins Beth and Patrick as they arrive in World War II era Holland. They must smuggle a baby by bicycle into the capable hands of Corrie ten Boom at her home in Haarlem. Along the way they hide from Nazi soldiers, meet a Russian surgeon forced into service by the Germans, and encourage two Jewish children who haven't been outside in over three years. The children learn to appreciate the bravery and sacrifice of everyday people who helped the Jews.

Both books 8 and 9 are due for release next month.

Imagination-station10-front.jpg

In a glimpse from next year we have Book 10 Challenge on the Hill of Fire

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.

Also coming out next year is Book 11 Hunt for the Devil's Dragon, we don't know much about it yet but keep checking back for more information as it becomes available.
