The Quest for Truth:
I found Unleash such a perfect book. Brock delivers the elements to keep
kids--even reluctant readers--engaged and excited, while giving them
lessons for life. Any teacher or parent should have this on their bookshelf
for their kids.
--Sigmund Brouwer, author of the best-selling Robot Wars series
The title for this book says it all. Unleash literally unleashed my kids'
hunger for reading. With action on every page, I myself couldn't help but
keep the light on a bit longer at night. Unleash will make even the most
stubborn reader tear into this book from cover to cover.
--Tricia Goyer, mother, author, and host of Living Inspired weekly
Warning: Don't pick up this book unless you're ready for a thrill ride that
won't let you off until the very end. Join the four Wikk kids as they travel
through deep space and encounter enemies right out of your darkest
nightmares. This is my kind of story--twists in every chapter, adventures
galore, and characters I wish I could hang with. Unleash your imagination
and read Unleash now.
--Robert Liparulo, best-selling author of The Dreamhouse Kings
series, The 13th Tribe, and The Judgment Stone
"The Wikks are regular kids given a Galactic size challenge. Readers will follow Oliver, Tiffany, and twins, Mason and Austin as they trek through eerie catacombs, mysterious ruins, and creepy castles that defy imagination. One part Indiana Jones, a handful of Swiss Family Robinson, and some Intergalactic excitement, the Quest for Truth is a riveting tale of just how far mankind will go for the ultimate prize."
- Wayne Thomas Batson, best-selling author of The Door Within Trilogy, The Berinfell Prophecies, and The Dark Sea Annals
"Don't even touch this book unless you plan to read it at once. Taken wastes no time thrusting its readers headlong into the beginning of what promises to be an epic saga. Exploding with mystery and high-stakes adventure, this book is masterfully crafted to awaken even the most stubborn of imaginations. And yet perhaps the most impressive feat is Mr. Eastman's ability to punctuate all of it with a deep and powerful message of faith. A job well done."
- Christopher Miller, coauthor of the multi-awardwinning Codebearers series

"Good, clean, adventures, Christian fiction set in a future time period to reveal truth as to man's origin and over come evil is the bases of this Taken. From the start, this book sends you into adventure and mystery of the Wikk siblings. The sci-fi within the story, like the ships that travel from one planet to another and the mysterious blue people, will remind readers of Star Wars yet the series is set to bring Christian truths into the mix. Wanting to see the characters grow and overcome the obstacles ahead as well as the promise of big adventures while discovering the mysteries of man's origins makes this series one of interest and worth reading. You are left with the hint of many exciting things to happen in the future of this series."
- Rachel Harris, age 21, MN
"It got right to the adventure, which was good in my opinion. It wasn't hard to figure out what was going on, the beginning was easy to understand. I think you should read it. Watch out for the Ubel!"

Titles By Brock Eastman
The key to adventure lies within your imagination! Cousins Patrick and Beth go to the Holy Land in the tenth century BC. Their goal is to get back the ring Hugh stole and return him to 1450s England where he belongs. But troubles await them as soon as they step out of the Imagination Station. First they meet an angry bear and later an angry giant. Set against the backdrop of the David and Goliath story, the cousins learn that having a giant faith is more important than having a giant on your side.

The cousins find themselves in the midst of a power struggle between Ireland’s King Logaire, Patritius, and the leader of the Druids, Lochru.
