“Watcher in the Woods”–My Review


Don’t forget to leave a comment, you’ll be entered to win a copy of this book.

Watcher in the Woods (Dreamhouse Kings, Book 2) 
by: Robert Liparulo
Thomas Nelson-2008

 

Twelve year old David King’s life is turned upside down. He and his siblings are about to start a new school in a new town, but that’s the least of his troubles. The creepy, old house his family just moved into has strange things happening in the attic. These strange happenings defy explanation, such as, why his mom disappeared, and where she went.

His family spends their days pretending to live a normal life, while their nights are consumed with unlocking the key to finding his mother. In the midst of turmoil, a strange man appears and is determined to drive the King family from their new home.

Robert Liparulo has spun a superb, complex web of mystery, intrigue, and action. A fantastic paranormal story filled with accurate history and God’s grace. Lots of research went into this series. Once you read the first few lines of “Watcher in the Woods” you won’t be able to put this story down. Even though this is the second in a series, you won’t feel lost, but you will feel the need to read books one and three.

Favs (without spoilers):

Character: Xander—he and I think alike 

Part: wind walking, I felt myself right beside David  

 

Dislikes

Character: Taksidian—a guy you’ll love to hate

Part:  That I didn’t have Book 3 in the series, (awesome cliff hanger)
