The First Escape byG.P. Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Is escape possible or will evil prevail?
Book one in the Dopple Ganger Chronicles is The First Escape.
This series by G.P. Taylor gets it's name from the three main
characters - twin sisters Sadie and Saskia Dopple and their friend Erik
Morrisey Ganger. All three live at Isambard Dunstan's School for
Wayward Children. What appears to be a normal day goes from bad to
worse as an eccentric, wealthy woman adopts Saskia, but not Sadie!
While Saskia discovers a mystery that threatens her life, Sadie and
Erik face dangers of their own as they escape from Isambard's and search
for Saskia. Will the three be able to reunite or will evil prevail?
The First Escape affirms the value of family and hints at a
higher power by talking of an unseen, always present Companion. When
The First Escape ends you are left wanting more!
The First Escape is reminiscent of both Oliver Twist and A
Series of Unfortunate Events: A Very Bad Beginning but not as dark. The
blended style of story-telling (text, picture text, and graphic dialog)
helps move the pace in an enjoyable manner that should hold the interest
of the reader with a short attention span. Don't deny yourself the
pleasure and enjoyment of G.P. Taylor's adventure!
