Reasons why the Dreamhouse Kings series is PERFECT:

1. Family - The bond between the kids and parents is huge. While Mom (Gee) and Dad (Ed) both hold reasonable parental roles, they at times seem to have a good grip on their own youth when it comes to adventuring with their kids. And those kids, Xander (15), David (12), and Toria (9) are siblings the way kids should be. Sure they can get on each others nerves at times, but they stick together through thick and more thick (because there is no 'thi

***SMALL SPOILER ALERT***

The final book in The Dreamhouse Series. I had given the rest of the series 4 stars and this particular book only 3. Then as the book started winding down, I was a bit dismayed that God entered the picture. 5 books and not mention of God and now all of the sudden God. I did expect the time traveling family to send up some where back in the a biblical time (what author could have resisted that). I was disappointed in the ending, I was expecting more.

I do hope that Mr. Li

First Look: 5/5 I love the cover! And the title is just plain cool. I also like the how the mom is the only light figure.

Setting: 5/5 Well, hmmm, let's see... Creepy old house? Check. Atlantis? Check. Ancient Rome? Check. Random, viciously morbid settings throughout history all stuff into one book? Check! Like the Pendragon series, this book does a great job of bouncing around to countless different settings. Though it's based on Earth, the history-jumping is a wild ride all on its own.

Despite an at first really awkward and heavy handed religious overtone about three fourths into the book, it was probably the best of the series. I don't wanna spoil stuff since anything I say this far into the series would be doing just that, but it sticks to everything the series excels at. Being: crazy ass time traveling adventures, a strong familial bond between characters, and scrapes with death about, oh, every 10 pages.

The book ends with the message "The end...?" and i really hope it isn'

Final Rating: 4.7 stars
Series Average: 3.8, rounding up to a 4.


Okay, why did I not feel this feeling of freedom when I finished this book, but instead a tinge of sadness? This series that I didn't think I'd like so much, this series that I didn't expect much from, this series that I only wanted to get finished a couple of days ago? I'll tell you why, THIS BOOK. Wow. Not many of my books get a (rounded up) 5 star rating, but this book did it! In my opinion, it was just the perfect conclusio

Frenzy. What else is there to say? It’s the final book in the Dreamhouse Kings series. Wow.

We’re starting out in a very familiar place for this series. Everyone’s in danger. Not just your normal average every day danger, but life threatening loss of limb danger. And this time around Liparulo has ratcheted the danger up several notches with the idea that one of the major characters is going to die in this book. Right away, one of the first things we learn when reading this book is that Xander is

When I first saw this book series it wasn’t the first in my list. In fact I found it in my school and bought it only because I had the money for only that first book and I have to say I’m thankful that I got it. It gives you an amazing adventure in which you traveled with Xander, David, Toria and Dad in searched of mom. Of course with help from some family like Jesse and friend Kael. In this book’s you will meet some of the must hair ripping, vicious and vile men in history. Going from door’s in

I hope there is another book, but if there isn't, this was a great ending. I had no problems with the whole Christianity part, but I am a Christian too, which may be why. It did drag a little, but it was over soon enough, so it wasn't something for people to complian about. I loved the begining with the map of Atlantis, and the chase through Atlantis, that was pretty cool. This book got me really into it from the first page, and I could not put it down, I finished it within a day. This was a re ...more

I love this book with my whole heart, I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone, but not reading this is like a crime! Not even kidding, he know show to tug at your heartstrings! It certianly tugged at mine, he shows so much emotion, the description of everything that they see and the charaters are so developed at this oint that you feel like you know them! Like you're right there beside them, cheering them on! I can't rave enough about what a tremendous book this is! The series is a definite ...more

Mr. Southmayd
Overall the series was a great read. Any series of books that could strip the energy away from my mind and body with each hour of reading is good in my opinion. What else should a book do other than toy with your emotions and keep you on the edge of your mind?
As far as this installment of the series goes, it really wasn't all that great. It wasn't the slight religious undertone beginning in the fifth book that grew into something significant that threw me. It was the staggering pace. For a seri

I loved this series and was almost sad to have it end...or is it the end? The frantic pace of the series is exciting and exhausting. The series, written for young adults, is very easy to read making it impossible to put it down. The author really allows you to know the characters to the extent that you feel you are there with them, experiencing it all. I would utter noises at some points in sheer horror at what was happening causing looks of alarm to unknowing bystanders. I know that some reader ...more

Enjoyed the series overall, but really could have gone without the religious and biblical mentions late in this one. At no other time in this 6 book series was there ever any mention of religion or the King Family having any religious beliefs. To suddenly have such an important part of the ending be quite religious and the family be so embracing of religion and "godly powers" within just seems really out of place and awkward. I must say I was really disappointed by it.
Michael Mcdaid
I felt the ending this series was pretty good. But only resolves thing to a point. The main problem is it seems like a lot of filler in this novel. And doesn't really do much until the end. I like the first few books. But as this series continued it started losing its fast paced narrative and became more of a slow pace novel with burst of action. Still a good ending but felt this series deserved a better ending.

Neither my 15 yr old nephew or I can decide if Frenzy being the final book in the Dreamhouse Kings series is good or bad. We've both waited with baited breath for each book to release, only to scream in frustration and wait on pins and needles for the NEXT book. (By the way, getting the books early made me a VERY popular aunt...)

Frenzy closes a fantastic series with as big a bang as it started. They're the kind of book you sit down and devour, not read. Frenzy answers some questions long left un

This book is about David and Xander, who are trying to find their mother after she was taken by Phemus 8 days ago. Takisidian, the one who is trying to kill them so he can take control of the house, is sneakily showing up everywhere. When Xander and David time-travel, they find out that Takisidian is planning to do something horrible! Can David and Xander change the future before it is too late? Will they find their Mom? Read the first five books of the thrilling series first, and then read thi ...more

I sat down with this book and I didn't get up till I finished it. WOW what an ending to a great series. It is very rewarding for the reader to learn all the secrets of the portals and to have everything wrapped up smoothly. The portal at the end really got me and I was thinking about how interesting it was for the author to add that in. Any reader would see the times religion is brought up in the series but it is really light which is why the ending interested me so much. I found that I liked it ...more

So... the final one in the series (for now). It was really good and I really enjoyed the spiritual elements in this one and it wasn't obviously spirtiual but I did appreciate it. I was hoping that in the last book that they would do more time hopping and end up in some other periods of history, but maybe that is why the series is only partially done at this point. The idea of time travel has always seemed to mess with my brain, but I think because this was a book written for kids that I was star ...more

The sixth and final installment of the Dreamhouse Kings series was a nice end to a great set of books. Robert Liparulo made a great adventure series. In this book, the King family (Xander, David, Toria, and their dad) and Keal are still searching for the King's mother. After Jesse was hospitalized in the last book, they continue going through time to see him as a kid. The first chapter of the book has Major spoilers (uncommon for first chapters) so i'll skip ahead and try to avoid the spoiler th ...more

Contains Spoilers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!---



I don’t really care much for this series. It’s kind of boring and pointless. I never felt a strong connection to the story or its characters. I just wanted to know what happened in the end, but nothing to surprising came about. They got rid of Taksidian without killing him, they found their mother, and now they plan on saving the future together. I thought it was interesting that they met Jesus in this book. It made a sappy, yet happy ending because Jes

I have to say, I REALLY liked how it ended. Usually I hate how some series end, but this one I was fine with!
I Saw in the back of the book about how Robert was gonna continue the series!! I cant wait if he does!

These take absolutely not time at all for me to read for some reason. One second I'm on page sixty, the next I'm on page 200. Seriously, it takes me a half hour to read over 100 pages.

I hate the idea of Jesus being in books and religious aspects and I do not believe in Him or really even a Higher Power, but some reason I accept it well in this book. Somehow it just...fits. And I like the idea of David being right, because he's such an awesome kid.

Oh, and I am in love with Edward King, no joke. H

This book is packed full of action, sentimental moments, inquisitive happenings, and awesomeness. If you have read the other books you still have no idea what is going to happen! There is no predicting this outcome, and especially not how it came to be. Characters change to fit the challenges ahead of them, and there are a ton of challenges in their near future. All fighting behind and wounds nurtured, their future is bright and curiosity will be their leader!
Ricky
Funny how this one ended...a little like Angel, if you know what I mean. Oh, but the best part - the trip to the set of Predator. AWESOME. :D
Suzanne
Fantastic book

This is such a great book. I had fun reading the whole series. I hope there will be more books in the series!!!
Paul-Baptiste
An OK end to the series. It all ran rather slow (the entire series takes place over eight days), but I was expecting a bit more....OOMPH for the finale. Overall a good series and this book stayed true to the whole. A bit of a deus ex machina, but it's a book about time travel so I'll give it a pass. Enjoyable.
Annette
Wow and wow!!!

This entire series was really good. The books got better with each one. I felt as if I really was there in that house with the King family. All the characters are so clearly written and visualizing them was effortless.

My favorite theme was how this family stays together. They learn that there is power and strength in a family unit and they must stay united in order to fulfill their desire of finding their mom and bringing her home.

Don't miss out on this fantastic series. Read them
