The boys had been waiting and waiting, and finally it came: "Risk" by Brock Eastman. We had read "Taken", the first book in the The Quest for Truth series of five books last February, and were anxious to find out what the Wikk kids were up to now. The stories are set in the future and take us traveling from planet to planet as the Wikk siblings are searching for their kidnapped archaeologist parents. Why were they kidnapped? They had discovered some clues that would lead people to learn about how to gain eternal life. And the “bad guys” want this power, so they and the kids are searching for the clues. Christianity seems to be unknown in this time period, but as the second book progressed with exciting adventures, there were more clues that I believe will eventually lead the Wikks to discover the Truth. "Risk" is categorized as “youth fiction.” It was perfect for my 10 and 11-year-old boys. (I enjoyed it, too!) But I would think it would be great for all tweens and teens. It’s a Christian book, published by P & R Publishing and Focus on the Family, but isn’t overtly so. Therefore, many other kids would love these futuristic adventure stories as well. For more information, see The Quest for Truth book website. (I received a free copy of "Risk" from the publishers. This review expresses my own thoughts and opinions.)
