Whirlwind (Dreamhouse Kings #5)
They've been to three worlds in less than a day. Time isn't just running out...it's running wild.
David King is reeling from his travels through history-and the evil he's found there. The last thing he needs is his great-great-uncle Jesse's hospital-bed instructions: You can't simply do nothing. You must fix things.
David and his brother Xander's search for their abducted m...more
This closely follows the previous book and though I wasn't able to finish it in a day, it's not for lack of interest. The portals were getting more...difficult to escape to from a certain world/time and I liked how David and Xander changed the course of history by doing what Jesse advised - to get the doctor in t ...more
Well THAT escalated quickly.
Haha, this one is not my favorite of the series, but it was better than the majority of the series. I don't have much to say about it, I'll state everything in the next book, which'll be the last.
This specific book opens with Taksidian pursuing Xander and David locked in a chamber. As you can tell, this book was FILLED with action, more than the previous ones if it's possible. I have to admit, at times I zoned out a bit, as it was 4am when ...more

So, I love a good YA series, and this is definitely a great one. One complaint though - I really don't think that every single person remembers history as accurately as ALL the people in the book. Everyone knows the year the C ...more
They've also been told my their uncle Jesse that it is the Kings' destiny to change and fix the past to ease the suffering of man. No pressure!

I like seeing the changes in history the best. One little action can have enormous impact. I also liked the idea of getting Toria out of the house for a bit. So young and innocent - I don't wish these kinds of things on any child. Anothe ...more
These books really aren't that entertaining. I just want to find out the end. At least we finally figure out where Taksidian came from, Atlantis. And how he stole the mother and grandmother to hand over to the kings. Seeing how Atlantis gets destroyed, I'm guessing he is trying to find a way to fix it or make a new world like it. I don't really like the way Liparulo paints Atlantis, so evil and cruel. At least it's one I havn't read of though. Makes it more interesting.
I really feel like they should have (view spoiler)[called the cops while the disgusting evidence was there. 'Cause you know that Taksidian gonna clean that up and not be held accountable. (hide spoiler)]

The Dreamhouse Kings series keeps entertaining me. The Kings have their hands full as they continue to hunt down their missing mom. And now they have to save history as they know it. As events in Civil War must be made right to keep US Grant alive and 700,000 people as well. I liked this book and can't wait for the final installment.
