Book Review ~ House of Dark Shadows

I have just finished reading House of Dark Shadows by Robert Liparulo. I was actually pre-reading this for Nathan and Ryan. They love spine-tingling mysteries, but there is a fine line between a book that is spooky or mysterious and one that is scary or terrifying. However, I think that they are really going to enjoy this series. It is a little reminiscent of A Wrinkle in Time.

In the book, the King family move from Pasadena to the small town of Pinedale. The house they move into is not what it seems. Brothers Xander and David discover a secret third floor with rooms that lead into the past. Unfortunately, most of these rooms seem to lead to life-threatening scenarios that are almost impossible to survive.

The book actually leaves you with more questions than it answers. So, if you read this, be prepared to read the entire series.
