The Passages books, written by Adventures in Odyssey writer Paul McCusker, are being re-released into two large omni-books called the Marus Manuscripts, named after the world of Marus that these stories take place in. Volume 1's cover was released last November and includes the first three books in the Passages series. Its cover is brown and frames a picture of Darien’s Rise, the very first book. Volume 2 includes the last three books to complete the series and its cover is blue and frames a picture of Fendar’s Legacy, the last book to date. Interestingly, this is the first time the Passages books will not be branded with an Adventures in Odyssey logo, despite the fact that the characters John Avery Whittaker and Jack Allen appear in the books. Volume 1 will be available for purchase in stores in May and Volume 2 will be released in August, the same month as Album 57: A Call to Something More.
