Overview

Volume 3 in The House of Grey Series

Fantasy, friendship, and fate await you in Collin Earl’s The House of Grey, based on the popular audio fiction by the same name.

14-year-old Monson Grey faces the same challenges that any freshman high school kid would: difficult classes, weird teachers, food fights…girls. Except, Monson Grey is not Monson Grey. At least, when he looks at himself in the mirror, the scarred face staring back is not someone he recognizes.

Now he finds himself attending an extraordinary school, the recipient of an incredible scholarship, among ridiculously rich classmates, all with no memory of how he got there or what to expect.

All he has from his former life are the flashes of haunting images that plague his dreams and the echoing voices that he hears, but cannot see.

Luckily, Monson finds fast friendship in two of his classmates, Casey and Artorius. Little does Monson know, they too carry their own skeletons. Yet, as bizarre events start to unfold around them, Monson wonders what secrets lay buried in his mind or if he will ever be able to share his true fears with his newfound friends.

Join our three heroes as they roam the halls of the most prestigious high school in the country, finding love, mystery, and answers to their algebra homework- all while peeling away the layers of Monson’s shadowy past.

Author’s Note: The House of Grey was originally a serialized audio fiction. Volume 3 continues the written adaptation of that story told in a six part series. Individual volumes do not contain the complete story.

Enough already! I've read three of these books now and with each one comes greater mystery and more and more questions without a single hint as to were this story and it's characters are going. I'm starting to wonder if the author even knows. I understand the literary imperitive of an author creating mystery and building suspence but you have to throw the reader a satisfying bone every once in a while. These books are very well written and the author makes you care about the characters but after a thousand pages I'm still waiting for a story. I'm afraid i'm calling it quits at this point. These books just seem to be a never ending story and there is a world of books out there i'd like to read and in some of them i'll actually get to finally see the wizard.

The above synopsis is a wonderful overview of the whole serialized series. In this volume we touch on the man in the mirror, looking back at Monson. We see of what happened at the Bridge accident and how relates to his haunting images. Monson starts to wonder if what's buried in his mind could be something someone doesn't want out. But what is it? The homecoming football game is a hit! They won and Monson found himself, unexpectedly, with a catch and touchdown that wins the game. Monson doesn't play football, yet magically he played like he had for years. When leaving the stadium Monson is saved by one of his best friends, Arturious, who takes his place. Monson has lived through another 'near-death' moment, making him wonder if someone is after him. However, there is another who doesn't make it. Monson then takes on title of cursed... Monson remembers nothing of his past, let alone that dreadful day that he solely survived and left him scarred, but pieces about and videos are starting to surface, showing parts of what did happen. This volume felt as the story was slower at the beginning as Monson is learning things with action packed happenings, making him wonder about himself. Along with making you curious too. In the end, it picks up steam and brings all you've learned together. Monson is seriously starting to wonder what he knows of that sad day that stole his memories and so much more. Could there be something there that some one would kill him for, to keep him quiet? However, he remembers nothing. But can there be someone out there not willing to take a chance of his memory returning? These are questions posed and make me wonder as well. Poor Monson feels he's going crazy with these thoughts and those of a mirror Monson that appears to be evil. Monson's inner self seems ready to surface and have Monson question who he was before the bridge accident. We start to learn pieces of what happened on the bridge and in the world around what the bridge meant. There is one thing with this volume that I want to warn you about. There are editing errors present with words and punctuation. They might be fixed now, maybe some of it is from formatting, I don't know. But in all I still loved the story told and the boys. They make me relax with their humor. I have to say I continue to enjoy Monson, Cassius, and Arturious. They are a great crew and make me smile. I do enjoyed their good humor and jokes with each other. We've even added a few girls visiting more. Who add to the banter splendidly. We start to see the deeper connections all these kids have in the adult world as well. However, Monson still seems to be a blank, like his memory. So many new hints dropped here. More mystery and questions. Yet as the end comes Collin feeds us a few answers. I'm looking forward to learning about Monson as things unfold in the last three books. And I'm glad they are all out and available now.

This book is geared more towards teens than young adult in my opinion. It's about a boy named Monson Grey who doesn't remember his past or what happened to him on Baroty Bridge. He is enrolled into the very prestigious school Coren University where all the well to-do kids go, including a teen pop star and actress! He is named Horum Vir due to winning the Knowledge bowl, something he does not remember winning. But this seems a big deal on campus and brings a lot of unwanted attention to Grey. Life on campus isn't what it seems as Monson struggles with his newfound popularity and trying to come to terms with his memory loss. The writing is simple and I don't know if I'd read other books by Collin Earl but if you like mystery this is the book for you.
