Product Description

The adventure continues! Join cousins Beth and Patrick as they travel through time to fifth-century Rome to locate a missing silver cup. After returning to Whit's after finding the Viking sunstone, another letter is left this time requesting a silver cup that belongs to a monk. If found, this cup may prevent the mysterious Albert from being imprisoned.
Emperor Honorius is hosting a gladiator battle at the Roman Colosseum in honor of a war victory. Beth attends as a slave and Patrick attends as a monk's apprentice, until he is taken prisoner and sent to fight in the arena. While in Rome, the cousins meet Telemachus, a monk that believes fighting is wrong and who is willing to give up his life to stop the killing.
When Beth and Patrick find the cup and return to their time, a new letter is waiting for them with information on the mysterious Albert's fate.

Publisher's Description

Patrick and Beth learn that Mr. Whittaker’s fancy ring can be seen inside the Imagination Station but not outside of the machine. A mysterious letter leads the cousins to fifth-century Rome in search of a special cup that belongs to a monk. If found, the cup could keep the mysterious Albert out of prison.
At the Roman Colosseum, Emperor Honorius is hosting a gladiator battle in celebration of a war victory. Beth attends the event as the emperor’s slave; Patrick attends as a monk’s apprentice but is taken prisoner and sent to fight in the arena. During their adventure, the cousins meet Telemachus (a true historical figure), a monk who believes that fighting is wrong. Telemachus is willing to risk everything—even his life—to stop the killing. When the cousins return with the cup, they find that a third letter has been sent with more information about Albert’s fate.

Once again the Imagination Station at Whit's End sends Beth and Patrick on a time machine adventure. In book 1, these two tried to help the mysterious Albert by visiting the Vikings. In Attack at the Arena, they search for a puzzling silver cup needed to save Albert. Beth and Patrick's adventures take them to Rome during the era of the first Christians. Beth is captured by a Roman soldier as they seek to take a message to the Emperor. Based very firmly on history, Bible morals, and the teaching of reading skills, this book closes with some puzzles drawn from the story.

Attack at the Arena is book 2 in Focus on the Family’s Adventures in Odyssey Imagination Station series. This series is written to engage and enhance the literary skills of ages 7 and up. Prolific writer of articles and books for young people, Marianne Hering knows well how to engage young readers.

Because of the mysterious Albert who needs help and the terrible Lord Darkthorn who is Albert's nemesis, readers will look forward to the next book in this series. – Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This is the second book in The Imagination Station series of historical fiction for children. As I child I apparently missed the story of the ending of the Roman games, and really never contemplated what led to their demise. Well now I know it was decreed by Emperor Honorius. A book for children taught me something!

    I think this would be a very interesting story for the target audience of age 7 and up. After reading, theres a secret puzzle to decode, and additional educational information and questions for thought on the Imagination Station website. This is a great tool for learning history that is engaging for children.

    Attack at the Arena is the second book of the Imagination Station series. I read this book with my niece and nephew and not only did they love it, but I felt good about it because it uses a captivating story to teach sound Biblical values. In this book, Mr. Whittaker and cousins Beth and Patrick get a letter from the Imagination Station. This time, they go to ancient Rome including the arena to find the missing silver cup belonging to a monk. This book is full of adventure that will appeal to young readers and valuable lessons that Christian parents will want their children taken into heart. I also appreciated the many facts of ancient Rome because it gave my niece and nephew an appreciation for what they have and how they live. Once again, Focus on the Family provides a great tool for parents to provide to their children that will impart valuable Christian principles to its users.
