Frenzy by Robert Liparulo

The Dreamhouse Kings saga has reached its climax in Frenzy.

I have enjoyed this series since the beginning. It had the feel of Lost in which answers create questions and a story arc that is sweeping in grandeur.

Having read Liparulo's adult fiction, I think he has a fantastic grasp of Young Adult novel writing and how attracts the attention of people all over the age spectrum.

These books aren't just for teenagers, adults love them just as much and will get almost the same thing out of reading them.

Frenzy closes the first major storyline in the saga of the King family. (Liparulo has stated that there will be further adventures in the house) From the first book, the King mother was kidnapped and taken into a doorway that led to another time and place. With each book that followed, the King family entered these special doorways in order to find and rescue their mother.

Along the way, they make discoveries about themselves and as a family and how they are tied to this bizarre house.

These books are like potato chips: you can't read just one and be done. There is absolutely no way that if you start reading this series, you will not finish.

Start with House of Dark Shadows and become family friends with The Dreamhouse Kings.

GREAT Series. Hate to see it end. But all good things must come to a end sometimes. I got through the first few books in no time. But since this is the last book in the series I'm dragging out the read. So I can hold on to it longer. LOL!
Best wishes in all you do Mr.Liparulo.
Thanks,Sarah Ham

I have read Robert Liparulo's adult fiction books and loved them, so when I heard he was doing a YA series of course I wanted to read them too. I bought the first book when it came out but for whatever reason didnt read it right away. Now I am so glad I didnt because I would have hated to wait for the next in the series to come out! They are wonderful and take me back to the books I used to read as a child.
