Review by my son, a high school student and Dekker fan:
The four Lost Books graphic novels are Chosen, Infidel, Renegade and Chaos. The stories are the same as the books but extremely scaled down due to the medium. Not recommended unless you have read the books because the books contain so much detail that is left out of the graphic novels. Chaos is nearly impossible to follow if you haven't read the books because so much is missing. However, for those people who have read the books, these graphic novels are a great way to experience the stories all over again in a different form. They are good reads but it is unfortunate that all four graphic novels have totally different illustrators. If they had remained the same it would have been better. The best graphic artist was Eduardo Pansica. It seemed as if his artistic style best captured the story.
