Available Now

Which door would you go through to save the world?

David, Xander, and Toria King never know what new adventures--and dangers--await them beyond the mysterious portals hidden on the top floor of their new house. They have battled gladiators and the German army, dodged soldiers on both sides of the Civil War, and barely escaped a fierce attack in their own home.

Still they are no closer to finding their mother, who was pulled by powerful forces through a portal and lost in time.

Their only hope is to turn the tables on Taksidian, the menacing stranger who wants them out of the house so he can use it for his own twisted purposes.

But everything changes when a trip into the near future reveals the devastating outcome of Taksidian's schemes--a destroyed city filled with mutant creatures. It is only then that the Kings realize what they're really fighting for--the fate of humanity itself.

Book 4 picks right up where Book 3 leaves a futuristic post-apocalyptic world where mankind has been reduced to mutant, human-like creatures. We also learn the fate of newly found Nana and Jesse who's lives hung in the balance when we last saw them.

In their continued search for mom the King family has a few new allies and have come to rely heavily on new friend Keal...Jesse's caretaker and friend. Evil Taksidian is still after them but the family has decided to be proactive and go after HIM. Dad and the boys set out to get the scoop on Taksidian and his evil plans. Unfortunately, once again Taksidian is one step ahead of the Kings and things get ugly.

Timescape has a little less action than the first 3 books but gives us some important clues and sets up to what looks like will be an exciting Book 5: Whirlwind due out this month!

This is a great series that I encourage anyone and everyone to read!

Interested? You HAVE to start with Book 1 House of Dark Shadows!
