Each book in this series has been increasingly better. This one has been our family favorite. We loved the plot twists and the character development in this book. We have appreciated watching the characters grow and mature throughout the series. My oldest daughter picked this book up and finished it in a day or two because she couldn't put it down.
However, this ends on quite the cliffhanger and has all of us eagerly anticipating the final book to come out.

The repeated phrase in our house as we read/listen to this series is, "Each book is getting better and better!" We like the first book and the second book in this series, but this book is even better. By the time you get to the third book in this series, you get to know the characters and their personalities. Each of my kids has picked out their favorite. The characters are very relatable.

My children have loved this series and have enjoyed following the progression of events. Risk does a good job of continuing the story line and adding new, exciting elements to the story. Just like the first book in the series (Taken), this book is action packed, full of twists and turns.

Suit up! Jump into hyper flight with the four Wikk kids! Forced into a high stakes hunt for their missing parents by the sinister Cpt. Vedrik, the siblings' only hope is their parents' Archeos e-journal. Can Tiffany decipher the clues within it? As time runs out, it's all up to Oliver and his Federation training to fly the Phoenix and protect his crew.

My family loves Brock Eastman's books. They are packed with action and adventure. They keep the kids attention throughout the entire book. We bought this first book just to "check things out," but soon ordered the rest of the series. Now, they are eagerly awaiting for the final book to be finished.
I've also enjoyed reading this series as a parent. As I've worked my way through seminary, I found it refreshing to sit down with a book that had a good story line, fun characters, and was easy to read. I've been caught up in the books as well and look forward to Hope coming out in the near future.

Folklore of a tree troll has always been whispered about in Misty Peaks. But now Hudson must decide if he believes it or not. Should he take the shortcut through Wasted Wood, or should he go around and guarantee he'll be grounded.

What made the experience of listening to Wasted Wood the most enjoyable?

My daughter and I listened to this book on the way to a hockey tournament. We listened to it all in one shot. We were engaged throughout the entire story, often hanging on the edge of our seats to hear what would come next.

We both loved the book. Brock Eastman has a gift at writing action packed stories without being repetitive.
