Attack at the Arena (Imagination Station book 2)

My daughter and I have finished the second book in the Imagination Station series called Attack at the Arena.   In this book, Patrick and Beth's adventure continues when they head back in time to ancient Rome.  Their mission is to find a silver cup in the hopes of helping a mysterious man named Albert.  Patrick and Beth discover a lot about ancient Rome and get into a little bit of trouble along the way.

We really enjoyed reading this second book in the series.  This book does a great job carrying over the exciting mystery that was begun in the first book.  The story includes lots of historical facts about the city of Rome during the time of the games at the Coliseum.  The story does include the facts about the prisoners fighting to the death, so be prepared to answer some questions about what when on back then.  Just like with the first book, this story ends with another mystery that will make your kids want to start the next book right away!

You can read the my review of the first book, Voyage of the Vikings here.  And be on the look out for my review of the next book in the series, Peril in the Palace (book 3).
