The Dopple Ganger Chronicles.. Secret of the Indigo Moon by G.P. Taylor
2nd in the series of The Dopple Ganger Chronicles,we pick back up with Eric Ganger and the Dopple twins at their home for wayward children. Eric as the only boy at the school (orphange) he has many responsibilities to watch over the girls of the school under the heavy hand of headmistress Miss Rimmer.
Something is awry when Eric hears noises in the night, discovers tunnels and secrets, and has to use his detective skills to find out what happened to the old headmistress Miss Olivia.
Subtle hints of an angel guiding one of the Dopple twins,and mention of "The Companion" who sent her, referring to God. Seeds planted for the non-Christian, nothing over preachy. If however you are looking for a character building,Christ centered tween novel, this is not the one to choose as it isn't a large part of the theme.
Fantastic novel and graphic novel combination. Geared for tween readers, maybe even the reluctant reader as GP Taylor weaves exciting text with comics,and graphics throughout the book. Captivating to the eye, that even my non readers wanted to 'read' it when it arrived.
Easy to jump into this 2nd novel without having read the 1st, but I will be finding the first for the children to read and enjoy
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers.
