Whirlwind by Robert Liparulo

Robert Liparulo continues his excellence in Young Adult novels with his fifth book of the Dreamhouse Kings series. Whirlwind picks up immediately after Timescape and never lets up.

Xander and David continue their portal jumping into other worlds and times. Their younger sister, Toria, goes on a mission with her father to discover the origin of the hulk of a being who kidnapped her mother. (this happened back in the first book)

Visiting times like the Civil War, almost getting trampled by war elephants, and ending up in a mythic land are all part of the quest for Xander and David.

Liparulo has created an incredible world with the King family and their house. It is to be comparable to the Lost tv show - with the great character development along with small questions that are answered in each segment, followed by more questions to be answered.

And let's not forget the mind-blowing cliff hangers.

If you're a fan of Lost, you have to get these books.
