Challenge on the Hill of Fire Book Review


About the Book

Kidnapped by Celtic Druids in 433, Patrick and Beth are headed to certain death when followers of a former Irish Slave (Saint Patrick, called "Patritius" in this book) save them. The cousins find themselves in the midst of a power struggle between Ireland's King Logaire, Patritius, and the leader of the Druids, Lochru. A spiritual showdown begins on the Hill of Slane when Patritius builds a fire, challenging the King's authority. Will Patritius prove to the king that the God of the Bible is the true God? Or will the king take sides with the Druids? The Emerald Isle holds many tales and legends, but this story of truth and standing strong for God is not one to be missed. (Goodreads)

My Review

I really liked this book because it was all about St. Patrick's Day! The kids take a trip in the Imagination Station to Ireland and meet up with Patritius who saves them from being sold as slaves. The country at this time was in fear and confusion on what to believe and who to trust. Patritius shows the kids how powerful God can be when you truly have faith.
This book is a great example to young adults about believing in the power of Christ and learning a bit about why we celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

I loved this book!
