Book Review ~ Watcher in the Woods

I just finished reading Watcher in the Woods, by Robert Liparulo. It is the second book in the Dreamhouse Kings series. I pre-read the first book in the series, House of Dark Shadows before placing it in Nathan and Ryan's book basket. I wrote about this book in an earlier post.

The second book picks up right where the first book ends (or not ends). I just can't stop reading this series. The story just sucks you in and never lets go. There are more alternate worlds to explore, which adds plenty of tense action and adventure to the story.

Brothers, Xander and David King, along with their sister and parents move into a creepy old house that is chock full of secrets. First, sounds are never what or where they seem to be in the house. There is a secret portal from the linen closet to a locker at school. Then there is a secret third floor with portals to alternate worlds. If that is not enough, the house is set in a rather dense dark forest that contains a clearing where you can actually float.

A family member has been kidnapped and taken to an alternate world and the rest of the family must work together to bring them back. Now, a stranger shows up trying to get the house for himself and is willing to do anything to get it.

What can possibly happen next? I have no idea. But, I can't wait to find out.
