Prepare yourself for a battle between good and evil in a brand-new book series from Adventures in Odyssey. Meet The Blackgaard Chronicles, a series that long-time fans, as well as newcomers, will enjoy.
Adventures in Odyssey radio dramas are fast-moving and exciting. But there’s only so much story that can be told in a half-hour episode! In these easy-to-read novels, kids ages 8 to 12 will learn more of the back story on their favorite characters and events, as well as find themselves in the middle of more adventure and suspense!
In these first two books of The Blackgaard Chronicles, the evil Dr. Blackgaard starts his attack on the town and people of Odyssey. How long will it take for wise Mr. Whittaker to realize what’s happening, and can he respond in time to stop Blackgaard’s nefarious schemes?
The story opens up with the first book in the series: Opening Moves:
A conniving city councilman is secretly carrying out plans against John Avery Whittaker and Whit’s End. Yet Philip Glossman is only a pawn in a dark game played by the mysterious Dr. Regis Blackgaard.
Meanwhile, against Whit’s express orders, Eugene and Connie tamper with a top-secret computer room—and the destructive Applesauce program is unleashed.
Can Whit counter the forces opposing him? What does Dr. Blackgaard really want?
