Review and Kindle sale: Captured on the High Seas, by Marianne Hering (Imagination Station book #14)

July 11, 2014

I recently had the chance to read Captured on the High Seas, by Marianne Hering (Imagination Station book #14). This fiction book was published on April 18, by Tyndale House.

About this book (from the back cover):

British warships battle with American privateers in this high sea adventure. Cousins Patrick and Beth have landed on the Royal Louis in the middle of the Revolutionary War. Cannonballs fly and swords slash. They’re captured! Now they face even more dangers. Will their new friend James Forten be sold by the British into the West Indies slave trade? Or will they all be sentenced to the overcrowded prison ship floating near shore where scores of prisoners die from filth and disease? Patrick and Beth help plan a daring escape as they witness firsthand the deeds of brave heroes who fought to make America the land of the free.

Final Verdict:

My family was recently introduced to the Imagination Station series, and we’re big fans now! My daughters are 5 and 7, and since this series is recommended for ages 6 – 9 we’re right in the target demographic. We’re fans of the Magic Treehouse series, and this series is much like that one, with two children traveling through time to complete quests and learn about history. This series presents everything through the lens of a Christian worldview, and we appreciate that. This isn’t a book adults are going to sit down and read without a 6-9-year-old involved, rather, the sentence structure is just right for kids to read alone. In my family I alternate reading pages with my 7-year-old. Captured on the High Seas is the second book in a three-book grouping about the American Revolution. I would recommend reading book #13, The Redcoats Are Coming, before this book, so you won’t be lost. Also, book 1, Voyage with the Vikings, is free for Kindle right now, so you may want to begin with that book so you’re familiar with the characters and the concept of the Imagination Station. Highly recommended for 6-9-year-olds!

If you’d like to check out Captured on the High Seas it is currently on sale for $3.82 for the Kindle version. (Regularly $4.99.) If you prefer a paperback copy, it’s currently on sale for $4.49. Remember, Amazon’s prices can change at any time.
