Review by Jill WilliamsonThe King family discover one portal that leads to the future, and it isnt pretty. 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.
Would someone please option this series for the movies! Seriously! 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 :-)
