Xander and David King will do anything to get their mother back. After they moved into their creepy, old house they discovered a secret hallway filled with portals to different places in time. Their mother was captured by a maniac and vanished into one of the worlds. After a long search, a recent clue might lead to her whereabouts.

Meanwhile, the mysterious and sinister Taksidian is causing more trouble for the King family and will do anything to stop their mission. When all hope seems lost, a strange old man arrives offering answers to Xander and David's questions. It seems that their involvement with the house is more than a coincidence. It's time for the brothers to embrace their role as Gatekeepers.

Gatekeepers is everything I have come to expect in this groundbreaking new series from Robert Liparulo. This exciting installment is jam packed with action, adventure, suspense, and a subtle does of heart. It is impossible to sit down and not devour this well crafted tale that is full of twists, turns, and astonishing surprises.

Amidst the chaos and frenetic pace, we find a silver lining message about the importance of family and what it means to fight for those you love. While this series is geared towards the young adult audience, I cannot help but find myself captivated by these beloved characters and their dangerous quest.

If you haven't checked out the Dreamhouse Kings series yet, I highly recommend that you start with the first two books (House of Dark Shadows and Watcher in the Woods). Not only are they well worth your time, but both need to be read to fully grasp the gist of this story. This series is truly some of Liparulo's best work and with three books to go I can't wait to see what he has in store for us next.

As soon as I saw GATEKEEPRS on the shelf at the local bookstore, I grabbed it and ran -- stopping momentarily to throw some money at the man behind the cash register. As soon as I was able to sit down at home, I devoured this latest offering from Robert Liparulo. And as with the previous two books in THE DREAMHOUSE KINGS series, I was not disappointed.

This book opens up right after WATCHER IN THE WOODS -- almost so close to that ending, that I had to go back and refresh myself on what had happened at the close of WATCHER. There's even a warning right up front that says to read the first two books before starting in on GATEKEEPERS. And that is definitely recommended. It's almost like the series is one large story having to be broken up by books because otherwise it would be ridiculously long for one single book.

I'm not going to talk much about plot here, other than to mention that this installment brings out a couple answers to nagging questions that had been burrowing around in my mind after the first two, and the ending will leave you wishing you didn't have to wait until July for book four.

Liparulo definitely knows how to amp up the action and suspense. Things are never easy for the King family as they deal with mysterious strangers, red tape, and danger in every world they visit through their house. This is a must-read for any fan of suspenseful and terrifying fantasy. Don't leave this one on the bookshelf. Read and don't stop until you've come to the end, gasping for the next one. I know I'm going to be waiting and watching for book four with a lot of anticipation.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the first book I have read in the Gatekeepers series. I think it would be best to read the other books, but you can read this as a stand alone nove, still enjoy it and go back and read the others if you enjoy it.

The house the King family lives in is very unique. It's different rooms and doors are actually portals to other worlds. I liked the historical value of the book when the children went to the Civil War world, or back to a French village and rescued a very important person in history - these were my favorite parts of the book.

The premise throughout the story is that the King family is missing their mother, and she is in another world after being kidnapped by the villian. They need to rescue her but do not know exactly where she is and going through the portals to go looking can be very dangerous.

The book has colorful characters and the house is actually amazing - it's alive and does it's best to keep the King family on their toes. People can actually get pulled through the portals if they are not careful.

I think kids who have an interest in history or time travel will really enjoy this book and will love the entire series. This book is well written and the action moves forward in a way that should keep children reading it and involved in the story.

This book was the most exciting that I have read to date. The suspense builds to the point where I can harldy stand it as I am waiting for the other shoe to fall.
The boys think that they have located their mother in the Civil War Era. Meanwhile, this evil man named Taksidian seeks to remove the family from the house by getting an eviction notice served because he says that the house is unlivable & that the children are are in danger. Mr. King accuses the policemen of taking a bribe to get them out of the house & he is ultimately hauled to jail leaving the children alone in the house to fend for themselves with a police cruiser outside to watch them that night. The kids are frightened to death, but stick together & refuse to give up their claim to the house. The 2 policemen are so frightened outside the house that night that they decide to flee for safety. They then meet their Uncle Jesse & his care giver. Jesse is there to tell the family that they have a purpose for being at the house as Gatekeepers. Later three humongous men from the other worlds come to attack the kids & to do knows what to them. They fend the men off with the help of the caregiver. The kids refuse to give up on their quest to find their mother despite clear & present danger. The little sister, Toria, is given more of a role in this book. She is no longer an annoying little sister. She is loved & valued. Although she is young, she exhibits bravery when she is asked to go alone into the Civil War Era to locate & bring back her mother because both boys are now known in that era & have had run ins with the soldiers. Toria finds herself in danger, but is rescued by her brother, David, who exhibits bravery also. They find & bring home someone only to have the hungry house want to reclame that person. Mr. King returns home from jail & new adventures begin in the otherworlds. This is a must read

More About the Author

I've been writing since before I could drive. Short stories, investigative exposes, celebrity profiles, editorials, business columns, radio dramas, screenplays--you name it. For the last few years, I've focused on novels. I'm the author of the thrillers "Comes a Horseman," "Germ," "Deadfall," "Deadlock," "The 13th Tribe," and the young adult series Dreamhouse Kings--"House of Dark Shadows," "Watcher in the Woods," "Gatekeepers," "Timescape," "Whirlwind," and "Frenzy."

Several of my books have been sold or optioned by Hollywood producers. All of them are in various stages of production. I'm also working on an original screenplay with Andrew Davis (director of "The Fugitive" and "The Guardian). I wrote the screenplay for Ted Dekker's "Blessed Child." My short story "Kill Zone" appears in the James Patterson-edited anthology "Thriller," and my essay on Thomas Perry's "The Butcher's Boy" can be found in the anthology "Thriller: 100 Must Reads."
