I grew up listening to Adventures in Odyssey, and even now as an adult, I still indulge from time to time. :) So when I came across this book and realized it provided some back story for the radio show, I was excited to read it. For fans of the show, I think you'll love it, as its written by Paul McCusker, who wrote a great many AIO episodes. I loved that the "voice" was true to the show, and it really read just like an episode of AIO.
I must say, I was a bit surprised with some of the issues dealt with in "Danger Lies Ahead," so I would encourage you to take note of the "ages 8-12" recommendation. Its not that there's anything inappropriate, but just that parts would be heavy for younger kids, such as personality disorders and abusive relatives, etc.
All in all, even as an a adult, I thoroughly enjoyed this foray into Odyssey via book form.
This book was great! It has the same great characters from Strange Journey Back and some new ones. It continues the story of Mark Prescott and introduces Jack Davis. Danger Lies Ahead is a wonderful conclusion to Marks story.
This is the first Adventures in Odyssey book I have bought. It meet all my expectations. I bought it for my 9 yr. old and he loves it!! It's filled with adventure but most of all it's a great Christian book. I will be buying more in this series. It is also great as a gift.
