Adventures in Odyssey: The Blackgaard Chronicles #1 - Opening Moves
- Product Review (submitted on August 26, 2017):
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!
