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.

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

(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)

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.

Okay plot, but very stereotypical gypsy characters

I really liked this story. It is just so interesting to recognize biblical characters in a different setting and with different names.
