mini obc about the book

HOUSE OF SECRETS follows three siblings and their family as they are forced to move to a mysterious new house in San Francisco and end up embarking on a journey to retrieve a dark book of untold power. The first story in an epic fantasy adventure trilogy!

When Brendan, Cordelia and Nell move to Kristoff House they have no idea that they are about to unleash the dark magic locked within. For the house once belonged to a crazed writer, whose stories have come to life. Literally. Now the Walker kids must battle against deadly pirates, bloodthirsty warriors and a bone-crunching giant. If they fail they will never see their parents again and a power-mad Witch will take over the world. No pressure then . . .

House of Secrets is the first book in a major new series. IT’S GOING TO BE EPIC!

 Thrilling heart-stopping adventure for three ordinary kids Brandon, Cordelia and Eleanor. Will their life get be any different after they have just moved to San Francisco? Will they be able to stop the power from within the crome woman who gave the Walkers a very weird welcoming.
 
This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time! Its a chunky book so not for the faint hearted that’s for sure.
The part of the book I enjoy the most is when Brandon, Cordelia and Eleanor go on their exciting adventures and meet lots of new friends. 
A brilliant motto that the authors Chris Columbus and Ned Vizzini 
‘Homework can wait. It`s time to save the world`
  Many exciting things happen in this house such as finding things that no one even knew were there.
When Eleanor does something that changes their life, will it stay that way forever or will it end?!?  
Its fast paced and action packed, with twists and turns….. some you see coming and some you don’t!! With Pirates, Withces & Ghosts there’s something for everyone.
Can the Walker children save the world. Find out in this brilliant exciting amazing book.
5 thumbs

***Mums note*** The back of this book states it is for 9+ readers. When Amy-Lee read some of the book to me I was a little worried that parts would frighten her, I think aged 9 is a little low for this type of book.
