Publisher Comments:

In this stunning adventure series from acclaimed author Robert Liparulo, a house that is more than meets the eye will change the lives of the King family forever.

When the Kings move to a new home in a new town, the house seems odd at first; but things get really strange when they realize that some rooms are portals to other worlds.

House of Dark Shadows - The Kings face terrifying dangers within the rooms of their home, but it still seems like an adventure until people start coming out of the rooms and into the house. When one of the intruders kidnaps their mother, they must find a way to rescue her-but who would believe such a fantastical story?

Watcher in the Woods - The King Family begins their search, quickly realizing that they must learn more about the worlds in order to find their mother. But they also must pretend that all is well at home. When a stranger appears and tries to force them to sell the house, their desperation reaches new heights.

Synopsis:

In the stunning adventure series Dreamhouse Kings, a house that is more than meets the eye will change the lives of the King family forever. When an intruder kidnaps their mother, the family must find a way to rescue her--but who would believe such a fantastical story?

Synopsis:

When his family moves to a small town, 15-year-old Xander discovers there's something odd about their Victorian house. He finds a hidden hallway with portals leading off to far-off places--in long-ago times. Xander is starting to wonder if this kind of travel is a teen's dream come true . . . or his worst nightmare.

Synopsis:

Dream house . . . or bad dream?

When the Kings move from L.A. to a secluded small town, fifteen-year-old Xander is beyond disappointed. He and his friends loved to create amateur films . . . but the tiny town of Pinedale is the last place a movie buff and future filmmaker wants to land.

But he, David, and Toria are captivated by the many rooms in the old Victorian fixer-upper they moved into--as well as the heavy woods surrounding the house.

They soon discover there's something odd about the house. Sounds come from the wrong directions. Prints of giant, bare feet appear in the dust. And when David tries to hide in the linen closet, he winds up in locker 119 at his new school.

Then the really weird stuff kicks in: they find a hidden hallway with portals leading off to far-off places--in long-ago times. Xander is starting to wonder if this kind of travel is a teen's dream come true . . . or his worst nightmare.

this is an awesome and an amazing book but a bad to do is read the middle of the book around ten at night when no one else in your house is awake.... BAD IDEA!!!! some of the parts are pretty scary and are really scary when your reading them at night so here's some advice..... don't read this book in the middle of the night.... other than that this book is really good and the author really had a creative mind and a big imagination!!!!!!!!! so i really recommend you to read this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
