John and Jack are mystified when they discover a cryptic warning on a medieval manuscript—a warning that is not only addressed to them, but seems to have been written by their friend, Hugo Dyson. But before they can discover the origins of the book, Hugo walks through a door in time—and vanishes into the past. In that moment, the world begins to change. Now, the Archipelago of Dreams and our world both suffer under the reign of the cruel and terrible Winter King. Dark beasts roam the countryside, and terror rules the land. John and Jack must travel back in time—from the Bronze Age to the library in ancient Alexandria to the founding of the Silver Throne—to find the only thing that can save their friend and restore both words. The solution lies in the answer to a 2,000-year-old mystery: Who is the Cartographer?

An interesting story which was wonderfully executed, The Indigo King is a story no fantasy fan should miss.

The story follows the adventures of all-time favorite writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, which occur throughout history and mythology, from Homeric Myth to Arthurian Lore, all perfectly bound with the flawless craftsmanship James Owen has displayed throughout the series.

This is an easy read, quite dynamic, and very hard to put down. Everyone should find something compelling in this story: kids will love the engaging plot and adults will love the numerous references to milestones in world literature, varied mythology, and even events of true world history.

As always, a big plus with this series is that, as an adult, you will feel compelled to brush on your literature; and you will find children interested in many classic authors, opening their horizons considerably. They will joyfully go back to Dickens, Verne and many more.

The Indigo King is the third part of The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Georgraphica. Here, There Be Dragons and The Search for the Red Dragon are parts 1 and 2. I strongly recommend all three of them.

I got my family hooked on this book series and they insisted I buy this one. It may not be what you're used to because of the dramatic twist of events that occur throughout the book that will keep you guessing but it is still an excellent book to add to your collection
It is amazing how James Owen interweaves so many mythological, historical, and legendary stories together into one frame of reading with each of his books. I would recommend this to anyone; especially for those who have read "Here, there be Dragons" and "The Search for the Red Dragon" books.

This time the book revolves around the Holy Grail, Camelot, Odysseus, and events past. It continues the tale surrounding John, Jack, and Charles but this time puts a dark twist on the events that they themselves cast into the frame and that they will have to unravel through time; or more like through the unraveling of time. They will have to travel to the past to fix the present which is not looking to be a very nice place to visit let alone be stuck in.

The Winter King returns and this time you get a chance of understanding who he is and how he became the Winter King. Also, the answer to the identity of the Cartographer of Lost Places is finally revealed.
There are also new characters to join the fray of things including: Hugo Dyson, Uncas son of Tummeler, Fred grandson of Tummeler, Hank Morgan, Chaz, and quite a few more.

From inside of the cover - On a September evening in 1931, John and Jack, two of the Caretakers of the Imaginarium Geographica discover a cryptic warning on a medieval manuscript--which is not only addressed to them but seems to have been written by their friend, Hugo Dyson! But before they can discover the origin of the strange book, Hugo walks through a door in time and vanishes into the past.
And in that moment, the world begins to change.
The Frontier, which separates our world from the Archipelago of Dreams, has fallen. Dark and terrible beasts roam throughout England. No one can be summoned from the Archipelago. And both worlds have fallen into darkness under the reign of a cruel and terrible king.
The only hope to restore the proper order of things lies on a forgotten island at the edge of the Archipelago, where a time travel device left by Jules Verne must be used to race through history itself--from the Bronze Age to ancient Alexandria and the founding of the Silver Throne--in one night. And in that single night, John and Jack will find that the only way to save their friend and stop the chaos destroying the world is to solve a 2,000-year-old mystery: Who is the Cartographer?

Although I am an adult, I am always on the lookout for quality children's and young adult books to share with the young people in my life. When I picked up the first book in this series, "Here There Be Dragons", I thought it had an interesting concept with a lot of potential and the writing had good quality. The second book "The Search for the Red Dragon" was a little more convoluted than the first, but still entertaining and fascinating to watch unfold. "The Indigo King", however, was largely a disappointment for two main reasons. Although the writing was the same calibur as the previous books, this book was even more convoluted than the second, tying in so many themes, myths, stories, and characters (real and fictional) that it was difficult to keep up (as an adult!). About two-thirds of the way through I resigned myself to not being able to capture all the little hints and gems generally contained in these books and just floated along 'til the end, hoping it would make sense by then.

**SPOILER ALERT (if you have not already read the first book)**

However, the most disappointing part was in the development of the character of Jack. Although a fictional character, he is purported to be modeled after C.S. Lewis. This was the author's choice and though it might at times restrict his creativity, I feel it was/is is duty to stay within the bounds of who that REAL PERSON really was. Mr. Owen did NOT do justice to Mr. Lewis in this book, choosing to ignore the fundamental development in his person as he moved from Atheist to devout Christian (and brilliant apologist for the faith). For the sake of his author's perogative, Mr. Owen allowed his portrayal of C.S. Lewis in this book to decend into wishy-washy mysticism.

As I said, disappointing.

Third in a great series, I am using this as a read aloud for my dyslexic teenage sons. It is a fantastic series for all three of us, and I recommended it to the middle school librarian. I have loved this series and this is a terrific addition to it, including even more references to fantasy series we three have read. To keep up, we keep firing up computer searches to learn more about historical or mythological characters. Awesome!

Awesome book. Great author. Must read. Great series. Start with the first Here, There Be Dragons. Then read the rest in this order: The Search For The Red Dragon; The Indigo King; The Shadow Dragons; and The Dragon's Apprentice.
  • Tuliancel
Recommend this series highly. These books are a definite must read.
  • Gldasiy
I like the series. Easy, but to simple, reading. Good adventure novel.
Yet another amazing book in the Chronicles series. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
