Timescape by Robert Liparulo - REVIEWED!

The fourth book in the Dreamhouse Kings series starts out at break-neck speed and never lets up! David and Xander King barely escape one life or death struggle before they find themselves facing yet another dangerous situation. Truly, Timescape has raised the level of suspense and fear to the boiling point!

Amid all of the action, the readers learn more about the house, more about the portals and more about Keal and Jesse’s key role in all that is taking place. Xander and David come together with their Dad in this installment to form a plan that will allow them to learn more about Taksidian and his motives for wanting to gain control of the house. Timescape begins to bring the pieces of this house-puzzle together in new and exciting ways!

But the ending? Well, let’s just be glad Liparulo let’s us know it’s “not the end”! This installment of the Dreamhouse Kings series is the best yet! I cannot imagine what lies ahead for the King family, but I know I can’t wait to find out! If you haven’t yet embarked on this time-travel adventure, what are you waiting for? Purchase your Dreamhouse Kings series today!

Once again, I MUST encourage you to read this entire series in chronological order! That's House Of Dark Shadows, Watcher In The Woods, Gatekeepers and Timescape - each book builds the storyline, increasing the intensity and telling you more and more about this very unusual house. Visit the Dreamhouse Kings Blog to keep up on all of the exciting release parties and fun contests and drop by Robert's fan site to discuss your favorite book in the series.

And hey, I'm a proud mama...Robert invited my two sons to join his advance reader's team almost a year ago now, and Timescape is the second book in the series to include my boys' names in the acknowledgments at the end of the book. This awsome opportunity allowed them to talk to Robert on the phone the other night and finally "meet" the author who has made their lives so very, very interesting and exciting! My oldest son was even given some information about the series that has him more excited and dedicated than ever! Suffice it to say, it's LOTS of fun to be a Dreamhouse Kings advance reader! Robert really has a heart for kids, and my boys have made a really "cool" new friend! Our lives have been blessed in many unexpected ways since the Lord brought Robert Liparulo across our paths!

So what are you waiting for? Go grab this amazing series and hang on for the ride! It's awesome!!


Robert is an award-winning author of over a thousand published articles and short stories. He is currently a contributing editor for New Man magazine. His work has appeared in Reader's Digest, Travel & Leisure, Modern Bride, Consumers Digest, Chief Executive, and The Arizona Daily Star, among other publications. In addition, he previously worked as a celebrity journalist, interviewing Stephen King, Tom Clancy, Charlton Heston, and others for magazines such as Rocky Road, Preview, and L.A. Weekly.

Robert is an avid scuba diver, swimmer, reader, traveler, and a law enforcement and military enthusiast. He lives in Colorado with his wife and four children.

Robert's first novel painted a scenario so frighteningly real that six Hollywood producers were bidding on movie rights before the novel was completed. His acclaimed debut novel, Comes A Horseman, is being made into a major motion picture by producer Mace Neufeld and his short story "Kill Zone" was featured in the anthology Thriller, edited by James Patterson.

Bob has sold the film rights to his second book, GERM. And he is writing the screenplay for a yet-to-be-written political thriller, which sold to Phoenix Pictures, for Andrew Davis (The Fugitive, The Guardian) to direct!

What an exciting honor for your boys! And it's so nice to hear about the personal side of the author and find that he really is such a nice person.

Thanks for sharing that side of it.
