Submarines, Secrets & A Daring Rescue - Book Review


I was given the opportunity to review the next book in the American Revolutionary War Adventure Series; Submarines, Secrets & A Daring Rescue. This book was written by: Robert J. Skead with Robert A. Skead. 


Book Description::

A Revolutionary War action-thriller filled with spies and heroes, targeted to boys and girls 8-12. In this second book in the American Revolutionary War Adventure series, twins Ambrose and John Clark find themselves volunteering for another mission to help the newly forming United States of America. Inspired by their success in delivering a secret message to General George Washington himself, the boys step up to help transport much-needed gunpowder to the patriots and end up in an even more dangerous situation, manning one of the first submarines and then, later, attempting a prison break to rescue their older brother, Berty
Written by Robert Skead with the help of his father, the main character is based on their ancestor who fought in the American Revolution as part of the Connecticut militia. Though historical fiction, the events that occurred with George Washington in New Jersey regarding the war effort are true.

My Review::

Robert Skead is the author of many popular children's book. However, for the writing of the American Revolutionary War Adventure Series he partnered with his father to write these stories. 

I read this book myself, my children have not read it yet. The book was very exciting from the beginning and truly pulled me into the life of each character. I cannot wait for my 9 year old to dive in and enjoy this book! 

As a mother my favorite part of the book was the accurate historical lessons, Christian theme and good moral lessons that were taught (such as: loyalty, courage and more). 

If you are looking for an enjoyable read for your children (ages 8-13), this is the book for them! 

There is also a prequel to this book: Patriots, Redcoats and Spies
