The Dopple Ganger Chronicles: The First Escape

The First Escape (The Dopple Ganger Chronicles)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!
