Product Description

From best-selling author G.P. Taylor comes the highly anticipated second installment of The Dopple Ganger Chronicles, a series that combines art and traditional text to help "reluctant readers" discover the wonder of books. Erik Morissey Ganger, famed explorer and detective (well, in his dreams), and his mischief-making sidekicks, twins Sadie and Saskia Dopple, didn't go looking for a secret tunnel beneath the school. They never intended to make the acquaintance of a shifty private eye with a nose for trouble. It wasn't part of the plan to come face to face with an old enemy, one with an agenda of his own that could destroy them all. And unraveling the "secret of indigo moon" was the farthest thing from their minds. At Isambard Dunstan's School for Wayward Children, these things just seem to happen. In The Secret of Indigo Moon, confirmed troublemakers Erik, Sadie, and Saskia plunge headlong into a new and perilous mystery, one that challenges everything they thought they knew about their lives, themselves, and whom it's safe to trust.

    After trying and failing to enjoy the first book in this series (I detested it for numerous reasons you can read about by reading the numerous reviews by people who felt the same as I did), I was wary about reading this one. I decided to try it out after reading some of the reviews and because it is a part of Tyndale's Summer Reading program. I tried to begin this book with an open mind and found myself truly enjoying it. Like the first book, the combination of novel and comic is pretty awesome. I enjoy both comics and a wide range of fiction, so this really appeals to me and I can see how it could get kids reading who aren't pleasure readers. The story in this book is much better than the first, it's still got a bit of a creepy feel to it (though not TOO creepy like I felt the first book was). The twin girls (Sadie and Saskia) are still too mean for my taste sometimes, but not nearly as terrible as they were in the first book. They become slightly likeable. Their buddy, Erik, is always likeable. The bad guys are hateable, and there are some adults introduced here that are great, mysterious, interesting people. While I would not at all compare this author to C.S. Lewis (these books are mysterious and creepy; Narnia is charming and warm, for the most part) I would compare them to Harry Potter. The storyline really caught me up and there were many loose ends that weren't tied up at the end of this book. I'm eager to read the next in the series (it seems to be the last?) and see how everything comes to a close. Depending on book 3, these books could possibly be used as an evangelical tool or as a conversation starter about faith. I do recommend you totally skip book 1 and simply go for 2 and 3.

    The Secret of Indigo Moon by G.P. Taylor is the second book in The Doppleganger Chronicles. These are graphic novels for tweens and teens and are fabulous. In The Secret of Indigo Moon Erik finds a secret passageway under the school when burglars come in the middle of the night to take treasures that are hidden there. Of course he gets the Dopple twins involved in the mystery to find out what is going on. What they find is a tunnel system and a master plan to steal from all the rich people around the school. But when they find their old enemy will they make it out alive.

    The Secret of Indigo Moon contains lots of of mystery, adventure, and twists that you have come to expect from The Doppleganger Chronicles. These are great books for the reluctant reader or for any tween or teen. I highly recommend them.

    Again, this book was a fairly quick read. I didn't think the mystery was quite as intriguing as the first book, but it eventually drew me in and I just had to keep reading! I'm enjoying all of the new friends that Eric and the Dopple sisters meet, and the tunnel maze under the houses was a great twist (pun intended!). The Christian theme was a bit stronger (without being preachy) in this book. I liked how Saskia held true to her beliefs when the others gave her a hard time. God is presented in a unique way in this series, but somehow it works.

    This is a great series for resistant readers. The books are action-packed so the plot moves along pretty quickly, which is key for hooking those non-readers! Parts of the stories are a bit "dark and twisty" but I think that upper elementary and middle school students will thoroughly enjoy them. Good grief, I'm way past that age and I LOVED them!

    While the first book is still my favorite (so far at least!), I still thought this was a very good read. (3.5 stars)

    The Secret of Indigo Moon is the 2nd book in the Dopple Ganger Series. Erik, Sadie, and Saskia live in an orphanage and they have a knack of stumbling into mystery and danger. This time, Erik wakes in the night by a loud noise. He follows the noise to a tunnel where he sees two burglars and there, he finds a note by Olivia, the former headmistress of the orphanage, who mysteriously disappeared. The next morning, he tells Sadie and Saskia of his night-time adventure and the note. Before they could discuss it further, the headmistress calls Erik into her office and tells him not to mention Olivia ever again and to let him know that he and the twins are going to be interviewed for the newspaper. The Dopple girls and Erik are interviewed by Dorcas Platt, who is a detective. After the interview, the three snoop on the detective and they see her enter the home next door, which is owned by a reclusive rich man who was robbed the same night that Olivia disappeared. Shortly after they observe this, Sadie and Saskia overhear a chilling call that Miss Rimmer, the headmistress, made to a unknown caller. Believing that Miss Rimmer was involved with the disappearance of Olivia and the burglars, the twins and Erik decide to explore the tunnels at night. Unfortunately, the night they explore the tunnels, they happen to run into the burglars and the chaos begins. Saskia is taken unbeknownst to the burglars and Erik and Sadie must rescue her. While trying to get Saskia back, they meet the reclusive rich man next door and get caught by the burglars. However, they did manage to free Saskia from the coffin she hid in and together, the three of them manage to escape from the burglars. With the help from Dorcas Platt, who turns out to be the niece of the reclusive rich man, they are able to piece together what had happened to Olivia and who is behind the robberies. Though this graphic novel is geared for teens and middle schoolers, I found it entertaining enough for an adult to read. There is plenty of mystery and adventure to captivate even those that may not be fond of reading. If you are looking for a decent book to read that has the element of surprise and suspense to it, you may want to try the Dopple Ganger Series.

    Kids in this second book sneak around, stay out all night, and as to be expected in a city, are in danger from creepy adults. The headmistress who is supposedly OK shows signs of manic behavior-- smiling, then screaming; she is nonetheless the least dangerous of their enemies. The illustrations are fascinating. There are scary scenes, but I think men shooting guns at kids is over the line.

    I do appreciate the attempt the author made to develop the characters somewhat. He has them brood about their past, and try to deal with their feelings instead of ignoring them, as they had in the first book. The boy even shows a conscience. They still have no punishment for their rebellion and trespassing, meanness, etc. The only spiritual part is the being the girl believes is an angel. She gives good advice, if cryptic. She speaks in riddles. I suspect the kids will be pointed to salvation only in the 3rd book. Her last riddle tells them, "Find the Man of Good-Bye Friday, and through his sorrows you will find joy." Hmmmm_..
