A Job Well Done!
This is the best idea for an Odyssey book series since the Passages series! Book 1 is so much fun. If you love AIO, you have got to read this. It adds so much more depth to the classic episodes from the Blackgaard saga that we all know and love. It's a great read from cover to cover!
A Look at the Villain's Side of the Story
For anyone who grew up listening to Adventures in Odyssey and who believes that Dr. Regis Blackgaard is easily the best villain ever written, this series is a must! As soon as I heard Phil Lollar was writing a novelized series to follow the Blackgaard episodes, I knew I had to read it! For those who grew up listening to the adventures online or on the radio, half of the book will just be a review, re-introducing you to characters and events that have already happened. What I love about this book is that there are brand-new scenes that add to the story which feature the villains of Odyssey: Phillip Glossman, Richard Maxwell and Regis Blackgaard. You get to discover more of the villains' motivations and also see how Blackgaard's reign of terror actually started long before "Applesauce." I read this book in two days and do not think I will be able to wait for the second book!
Design, concept, art and story are all amazing. Hope this series goes to 10+ Volumes!
