ABOUT THE BOOK:
My Review: Robert Liparulo has written another amazing addition to the Dreamhouse Kings Series! Gatekeepers picks up where Watcher in the Woods left off, with them possibly finding their mom who was kidnapped into another world in book one. The action continues as they have to search for their mom and try to stop the people from taking their house. Dad goes to jail because they wouldn't get out of the house. Clayton, a boy in David's class at school finds out the secret of the locker and causes more problems for the King children. They finally meet their great uncle Jesse who left the nursing home with him nurse in a previous book. He knows about the house and is supposed to help them. This is an excellent book that goes between worlds and constantly is in a state of action. If they are not on another world, then someone from another world is chasing them in this one and they have to "fly" to get away. This and the other 2 books in this series are well worth reading, and stay tuned for book 4! There is a cliffhanger at the end of this book that leaves you begging for the next book!

In the third novel of this young adult series, the mystery deepens in a house that is more than meets the eye.
The Kings have been in the creepy old place, their new home, for only a few days, but they've experienced enough terror to last a lifetime. And the mystery is growing even more baffling. Shadowy and shifting, the big house conceals doors into other worlds that blur the line between memories and dreams-and the slightest misstep can change history forever.
At least, that's if they believe the trembling old man who shows up claiming to know them. "There's a reason you're in the house," he tells them. "As gatekeepers, we must make sure only those events that are supposed to happen get through to the future."
The problem is that horrors beyond description wait on the other side of those gates. As if that weren't enough, the Kings are also menaced by sinister forces on this side-like the dark, ancient stranger Taksidian, who wants them out now.
It's hard to believe that things could have gotten worse for the King family-but they have. Dad's in handcuffs, the school bully has just found the secret portal that leads from the high school to the house, and Xander is sure he's found Mom, but they can't get back to her. Then Jesse arrives, and he seems to be a virtual Obi Wan of knowledge about the place. But is he the key they need to unlock the secrets, or just a crazy old man?
Dangers are increasing from within and without when Xander makes a startling discovery that explains why they haven't found any rooms that lead to the future. Alongside the threats, though, they're also starting to find some surprising allies.
All they have to do is get organized, get psyched, and get Mom. But that isn't nearly as easy as it sounds.
Xander, David, and Toria must venture beyond the gates to save their missing mother-and discover how truly high the stakes have become.

surprises. I loved wandering around in these books. With a house of so many
great, haunting stories, why would you ever want to go outside?" --R.L.
