I've read the first 3 Passages books, and when I finished this one, I thought it was the best yet! I think Mr. McCusker improved his writing of the series quite a bit ;-) Compared to the first Passages book, Draven's Defiance, this one was much better written and more action packed.

The Biblical story, Elijah, is one of my favorites. It's also interesting in that it introduces something not seen in Passages so far—(view spoiler)

McCusker does it again, this time with the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal. Draven is a follower of the Unseen One who lives in the home of a widow.

(I have just realized that, though I read these several years ago, I didn't mark them as read on here. So, in case your jaw just hit the floor, I did not read the entire series in one day. :p)

Draven's Defiance is the fifth book in the Passages series. In this installment of the Passages series a boy suddenly finds himself in a different world. This book is based off of the Bible story of Elijah. If your a fan of Adventures in Odyssey you'll love this book.
