Running away from home, and then whisked away to a fantasy-world is the coolest thing that could happen to a kid...right?

But when you are caught up in in the middle of sibling rivlery, you might think again.
I continue to really like this series, but of the four I've read so far, Glennall's betrayal gave me the most pause. This is the story of Joseph, well told. I wasn't sure how McCusker was going to deal with the slavery or Potiphar's wife, but the more difficult aspects of his story are adapted well and don't soft-petal the sin or danger he was in.

The thing I dislike about these books is the lack of imagination in the world-creation. When you have to compare everything to the Old West in the United States, it's pretty lame. Whatever happened to the wonder of discovering a new world?

But it's a retelling of a Bible story, while staying mostly true to the Biblical account. This story has Joseph being bent on revenge and thinking God's plan is for him to rise up and then punish his brothers, all the way through. His companion from our world
Glennall's Betrayal is the fourth book in the Passages series. A young boy is transported to the strange land of Marus where there are two moons! Glennall's Betrayal is a new take on the story of Joseph. Long time Odyssey fan will love this book and so will first timers.
I really liked this story. It is just so interesting to recognize biblical characters in a different setting and with different names.
