House of Secrets

by Chris Columbus, Greg Call, Ned Vizzini

HarperCollins | April 23, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

House of Secrets is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.

Hailed as “a breakneck, jam-packed roller coaster of an adventure” by J. K. Rowling, this New York Times bestseller is the first installment in the explosive tween fantasy series by famed Hollywood director Chris Columbus (of Harry Potter fame) and bestselling author Ned Vizzini (It’s Kind of a Funny Story).

Siblings Brendan, Eleanor, and Cordelia Walker once had everything they could ever want. But everything changed when Dr. Walker lost his job. Now the family must relocate to an old Victorian house, formerly the home of occult novelist Denver Kristoff—a house that simultaneously feels creepy and too good to be true. By the time the Walkers realize that one of their neighbors has sinister plans for them, they’re banished to a primeval forest way off the grid.

Bloodthirsty medieval warriors patrol the woods around them, supernatural pirates roam the neighboring seas, and a power-hungry queen rules the land. To survive, the siblings will have to be braver than they ever thought possible—and to fight against their darkest impulses. The key may lie in their own connection to the secret Kristoff legacy. But as they unravel that legacy, they’ll discover that it’s not just their family that’s in danger . . . it’s the entire world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gud Buuk I thought this book was an amazing read. I couldn't put down this five hundred word book. If you would like to read a perfect mix of suspense and a novel full of adventure,then this book is waiting right in store for you. It had taken me about a week to finish this at a rate of a good 50 pages a day, but sometimes ended up reading 70 to 80 pages. I would really recommend this book, and am excited to get the next parts of this story. I know that for sure I'm going to go to the store and get the sequels. This was an amazing read and I totally loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gud buuk I think this book was an amazing 500-paged story. The adventurous novel House of secrets was amazing, and right when I read the back I knew it was perfect for me. This book was a good read, it took me about one week to finish at a rate of 50 pages daily. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good thriller read. The book is full of suspense I was amazed when I had finished reading. This had made me very excited about all of the sequels, and I know that for sure I will read those.
