Hannah Mynes Timescape by Robert Liparulo Every book is filled with suspense! Number of stars (1 to 5): 5 If you have read the first three books of the Dreamhouse Kings series, then you’ll love this one! House of Dark Shadows, Watcher in the Woods and Gatekeepers have led you up to this book, Timescape. The first three books you up to read this one because the suspense in them is just amazing! You will be turning pages all day. Things are getting harder on Xander, David and Toria. Their mother is still missing because she was pulled through a portal by strong forces into a lost time. Stranger things are waiting for them in the hidden top floor of their house. The Kings kids have tried almost everything to get their mom back, but so far, that has failed. They have fought against gladiators and the German army, ran from both sides of the Civil War, and fought people in their own home. Their only hope is to make Taksidian (the evil stranger that wants to take the old house away from the Kings) go away and stay away. He wants to use the house and the portals for his own evil use to destroy the rest of the world. When they travel into a portal that they haven’t explored all the way, leads them into the future. And what the Kings see is strange, mutated creatures attack them. The world is going to end up like that if they don’t stop Taksidian. The future of the world is in the Kings’ hands. This book is packed with a lot of suspense that will leave you wanting more. If you have read the first three books, then you’ll definitely want to read this one! The King family continues in their quest to learn why their house is so strange - filled with portals to different times and places. Times and places that are often dangerous, but also the only way they have to find where their mother may have disappeared. Overall, the Dreamhouse Kings series are the best books that you’ll probably read!!!!!!!!!

Things just became a little more complicated for Xander and David King. Not only is their mother still missing, but a sobering look into the future reveals that much more is at stake. As Xander and David search for answers within the time portals they find an unexpected ally who sheds more light on the house and the greater mission they have been called to. With a renewed sense of purpose the King family decides to turn the tables and go after Taksidian to put a stop to the evil plans he has put into motion. As this series unfolds I continually find myself in awe of Robert Liparulo's ability to not just write amazing stories, but also his ability to get better with each offering. Timescape is easily the best novel of the Dreamhouse Kings series, showcasing the most intense action sequences and the most gut wrenching suspense we've seen. Two of the time portal scenes were actually crafted from ideas students entered into the Dream the Scene contest on Liparulo's website. In masterful fashion, Liparulo pulls out all the stops making these scenes the most memorable of the series so far. In a young adult market saturated by commercialism, mediocrity, and unoriginality it's refreshing to find a series like this that is not only fun to read but also challenging and engaging. These are the kind of books families can love and share together, and no matter your age you will find yourself easily immersed into this marvelous world of adventure that Liparulo has crafted. Once again Robert Liparulo reminds me of the beauty of story and why I love to read. www.fictionaddict.com

Just finished reading this. It was really well-written. The plot maybe would be a bit too complex for young readers though, so I would say this would be for ages 10+. Remarkable story though. It is something that takes a lot of imagination and curiosity to write. Well done. You outdid yourself, Robert Liparulo! -Angela, 12 yr old

The King family continues in their quest to learn why their house is so strange - filled with portals to different times and places. Times and places that are often dangerous, but also the only way they have to find where their mother may have disappeared. Best read immediately after book 3 - I would recommend reading the entire series in order, back to back. One book moves seamlessly into the next.
