    The Wikk kids are in a high stakes adventure in the quest to find their parents. Flying to Evad in their ship, the Phoenix, as indicated by their parent's e-journal, they uncover amazing technology on the planet. Exploring the dense jungle, they push forward for answers. They encounter more dangers then ever before, with time running out every second they linger over new discoveries. With numerous ziggurats to explore, a forest full of wild animals, and the ever-present danger of the Ubel - the responsibility to bring the family back together rests solely on the Wikk kids.

    Oliver is struggling to keep his younger twin brother under control, as Austin's escapades are continually endangering the mission. Tiffany is trying to keep everyone safe and alive. And Mason is, as always, caught betwixt and between the schemes and false bravery that Austin insists on portraying. Will the Austin put the rest of the family at risk when he goes rouge to rescue his parents from Captain Vedrick? Or will they all manage to stay one step ahead of their parents' captors despite the fact that they are continually being separated?

    This was, once again, a stellar novel from Eastman. He doesn't just deliver good reading material, he will take your imagination on the ride of your life. It doesn't matter how old you are, you will drawn like a moth to a flame to the high adrenaline adventures (and sometimes misadventures!) the Wikk kids keep stepping into. The descriptions of the fantastical sights are portrayed with just enough detail to keep you informed and excited about the scenery, but are never overdone or overly tedious. This one kept me up way past my bedtime despite my best intentions, and I promise the same will happen to you until you turn the very last page. Recommended to anyone who can read, you will not be disappointed!

    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. (I received a free copy of "Risk" from the publishers. This review expresses my own thoughts and opinions.)

    I got these books for my kids, but I had to read them too! :) These books are great for all ages. My daughter LOVED the second book, even more than the first one. She didn't want to put it down at night because she wanted to know what happened. I had to force her to go to bed and she was back up early the next morning to finish it. It is about four siblings whose parents are taken and they are on a mission to find them. The book takes place on multiple different planets sometime in the future and the children are searching for the Truth. There is adventure, excitement, danger and mystery, but it is a good, wholesome, clean book! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone! I can't wait until my son reads it, I think he will love it too!
