Which door would you go through to save the world?
David, Xander, and Toria King never know what new adventures--and dangers--await them beyond the mysterious portals hidden on the top floor of their new house. They have battled gladiators and the German army, dodged soldiers on both sides of the Civil War, and barely escaped a fierce attack in their own home.
Still they are no closer to finding their mother, who was pulled by powerful forces through a portal and lost in time.
Their only hope is to turn the tables on Taksidian, the menacing stranger who wants them out of the house so he can use it for his own twisted purposes.
But everything changes when a trip into the near future reveals the devastating outcome of Taksidian's schemes--a destroyed city filled with mutant creatures. It is only then that the Kings realize what they're really fighting for--the fate of humanity itself.

Their only hope is to stop whatever it is that Taksidian is planning to do to create such a horrifying future. But how can they go up against someone they know so little about? They decide to switch things up, spy on Taksidian for a while. Do they really know what theyre getting themselves in to?Ack!!! Each of Robert Liparulos books end on cliffhangers and I think this was the biggest one yet. And now I must wait until January for book five in this six book series. Sigh. The Dream House Kings series is like one big novel split up into six installments. Its an exciting, action-packed adventure that follows the King family as they move into a house thats alive and try to discover their purpose for being there. Very highly recommended.

I can not read these books without picturing the whole movie in my head. Love this series!This is the perfect example of a series where you CAN NOT read them out of order - absolutely not! But book #4 "Timescape" is fantastic and it is the first book that uses settings suggested by readers. So we get to follow David through a portal onto the Titanic... as it is sinking! I love where this series is going and I plan on being along for the ride the whole way.David and Xander are still trying to find Mom somewhere in the portals, stave off the bad guy from taking their house and keep from getting killed. Uncle Jesse is in danger, the portals want Grandma back and Dad wants them to go to school??? Life is not normal at their house and they just want Mom back... why do I have the feeling that life is going to get worse for them before it gets better?This is hands down one of the best YA series I've ever read - get it now :-)
