Another Mystery for Graphic Novel Lovers Everywhere

The Secret of Indigo Moon (The Dopple Ganger Chronicles)Overview:
The Dopple Ganger Chronicles follows the investigative journey of Erik Morrissey Ganger and his twin, female sidekicks (Sadie and Saskia) as they seek to solve mysteries and save the day. The Dopple Ganger Chronicles is written by G.P. Taylor, and it is written in the format of a graphic novel.

The Secret of Indigo Moon is the second book in The Dopple Ganger Chronicles. Erik, Sadie, and Saskia are at it again. As the book summary states, the trio never tries to get into trouble. It just seems to find them. This book picks up right where The First Escape leaves off. The group is investigating strange noises coming from the basement of the school. In the process they discover a secret tunnel, a new acquaintance, and an old enemy. Will they be able to solve the mystery? Will they survive? I guess you will just have to read the book to find out.

The graphics and format of this graphic novel are fantastic! This book is targeted for a young audience, but is still enjoyable for adults who enjoy a good graphic novel. I don’t recommend it for you if you don’t like teen mysteries and/or graphic novels. As far as the claims that G.P. Taylor is “The new C.S. Lewis,” I don’t know about that. I am still undecided whether this work compares to The Chronicles of Narnia, but I think that they are definitely good in their own right.
The Secret of Indigo Moon is the first book by G.P. Taylor I have ever read. It was enjoyable and easy to follow even though I had never read The First Escape or any other works by Taylor.

I highly recommend this book to young readers, and to those who enjoy a great graphic novel.

This book was provided to me at no cost by Tyndale Publishing Company for review purposes.
