Easy as A, B, C . . . from HA
This is referring to the third installment of the Case File #13 series by J. Scott Savage, Evil Twins. This definitely doesn’t belong in the aforementioned file 13. This one belongs in a hallowed spot in your library. (If for no other reason than Mr. B not having any answers.)
For those of you not familiar with the series: first, shame on you. You don’t know what you’re missing.
Second, a recap: Episode 1, Zombie Kid, has one of the three Monsterteers becoming a zombie. Episode 2, Making the Team, deals with a mad professor who is, in fact, making a football team out of used body parts a la Dr. Frankenstein.
This foray into the freaky and unknown has a little bit of everything: a homunculus, a search for Big Foot, doppelgangers, and discussions of other mystical and mythical beasties. I even found out the plural of Big Foot.
Savage has created a wickedly exciting and hilarious adventure. His three protagonists, Nick, Carter, and Angelo are caught up in a world where doppelgangers are taking over. It seems they accidentally opened a portal on a camping trip… oh, wait; don’t want to give too much away. I’m bad about that.
It’s a tightly woven tale, full of twists and turns. There are kidnappings, disappearances, and strange goings-on with town members acting strangely. (Hint: picture Old Man Dashner roller skating in a lady’s bathing suit, pink of course, along the sidewalk. And that’s just one example.)
The climax, has the boys fighting themselves, well, their evil twins, to make things right. It’s a thrill a minute ride.
Get this one! If you haven’t read the other two, get all three of them! You’ll be glad you did.
