Gatekeepers (Dreamhouse Kings #3)
The house talks. It breathes. And it's hungry.
The Kings have been in the creepy old place, their new home, for only a few days, but they've experienced enough terror to last a lifetime. And the mystery is growing even more baffling. Shadowy and shifting, the big house conceals doors into other worlds that blur the line between memories and dreams—and the slightest misstep...more
More lists with this book...
The first three books of this series are excellent. I actually thought this was a trilogy, so to find out that there are THREE more books was a huge shocker, although I can't wait until I can read the last three books.
The contents of this story are definitely for teenage+ readers since the King family members travel to violent worlds, ...more
I liked how the characters matured, they philosophize, think of the bright side of things after near-death experiences from one portal to another. Jesse, their grand uncle, was the one who built the house and he is really wise. The concept of hostility towards time-travelers ...more
I almost feel silly for being this excited about a kids/teens book series, but honestly after reading it I think just about ANYBODY would be psyched. I was lucky enough to read books 1 and 2 (House of Dark Shadows and Watcher in the Woods) back to back. Waiting for Gatekeepers to release was like sitting on pins and needles... for MONTHS. Then, once it's in my hands I've got it read in one afternoon and the wait starts all over. Somehow though, the waiting ...more
The main characters are Xander, David, and Toria. While they go on an adventure to save there mother, they make friends and find beasts. Also while on the adventure, at the same time, Taksidian is trying to get them out of the house.
Will he get them? Read to find out!
My favorite things about the book is that on the back, it says, "One mistep could change histor ...more
You know, to be honest, whenever I finish a book in this series and I sit down an hour later and think about it, I groan and just want to get this series over with. I know it sounds terrible, but whenever I start the series I don't think so low about it.
This book was a lot better than the last 2. I'm still hoping that the series will get better, but this book wasn't bad at all, especially compared to the first one.
So, this specific book is about the Kings advancing t ...more
In many serial novels, one of my biggest pet peeves is having to read pages and pa ...more
Book 3 in the Dreamhouse Kings series
Life is a bit fast paced and dramatic for the King family. In the space of a week they have moved from Los Angeles to northern California, found a house that is a bit creepy and strange, discovered things about the house, and had their mother stolen by a giant of a man. That would be Book 1.
Book 2 brings a bully, a strange guy causing problems, visits to other times through rooms of the house, searching for their mother, family ...more
Gatekeepers is the 3rd book in the Dreamhouse Kings series.
There is one person who is trying to get the King family out of the house. He has the power to convince the mayor and police to help him evict them.
After taking the father into custody, they leave the 3 children alone in the house....with the crazy rooms that suck them into another time and place.
Then there this old man and his assistant working their way toward the house. There's some connection between the house and the old man.
And we ...more
I like how realistic the characters are, in they're emotions, as well as they're actions. None of the characters are 2d. Robert Liparulo, obviously put thought into his books.
I did however, notice some miner grammar/spelling errors. Although it was very miner and hardly noticeable.
I am on the lookout for mo ...more
well this book was much more interesting then the first two. They found Edwards mother! How exciting is that? I totally thought she was dead! Gives me hope for David’s mother. Of course Victoria and the grandmother got sucked back into the worlds so... who knows what will happen there. Wow the future doesn't look very bright for these guys. I know they will eventually stop the evil bad guy and save the future in some book or another though. I would really like to pick J ...more

I like this book because it's full of action and suspense. Each chapter is crammed with excitement. The different perspectives of the people changed my view ...more
I’m enjoying the development of the story in this book. We finally start to see information and events come together. Once again, however, Liparulo leaves the reader on a cliffhanger and I hate those with a passion. Fortunately, I know my p ...more
The third book in the Dreamhouse Kings series continues to offer great action. The characters are still a bit stagnant and none of them seem to be anywhere closer to their goals. While there is little resolution, there is st ...more
Honestly, I didn't have very high hopes for the series after reading through the first book, but I am completely hooked now! This book was just as captivating and surprising as the 2nd book in the series. The story is becoming more complicated and involved, and we are getting to learn about characters that were introduced in book 2. All the books have been emtional, but this was the first book that actually brought me to tears. Amidst all the c ...more
