It's the summer of 1958 and Kyle and his sister Anna couldn't be more bored. They are staying for a month this summer with their grandparents in Odyssey and are looking for a little adventure. Their uncle tells them of an old house in the woods and they decide to find it. When they do, what first appears a decaying, abandoned house actually is a portal to another world - the world of Marus, where kings and generals and swords are the norm. Soon both Anna & Kyle discover their calling - she the 'voice' and he the 'protector'; and their lives, both in Marus and Odyssey, will never be the same.
This retelling of the story of David, Saul, and Samuel was wonderfully done, and I love the author's take on Biblical stories through the lens of Odyssey. In the few books I've read so far, they have done a great job of depicting the truth while telling an interesting and poignant story. I highly recommend this series, both for children and adults.
