House of secrets a novel
House of Secrets (House of Secrets, #1) by Chris ColumbusFrom legendary Hollywood director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) and bestselling author Ned Vizzini (Its Kind of a Funny Story) comes this first book in an epic new fantasy series.
Brendan, Eleanor, and Cordelia Walker once had everything: two loving parents, a beautiful house in San Francisco, and all the portable electronic devices they could want. But everything changed when Dr. Walker lost his job in the wake of a mysterious incident. Now in dire straits, the family must relocate to an old Victorian house that used to be the home of occult novelist Denver Kristoff—a house that feels simultaneously creepy and too good to be true.
By the time the Walkers realize that one of their neighbors has sinister plans for them, theyre banished to a primeval forest way off the grid. Their parents? Gone. Their friends? A world away. And they arent alone. Bloodthirsty medieval warriors patrol the woods around them, supernatural pirates roam the neighboring seas, and a power-hungry queen rules the land. To survive, the siblings will have to be braver than they ever thought possible—and fight against their darkest impulses. The key may lie in their own connection to the secret Kristoff legacy. But as they unravel that legacy, theyll discover its not just their family thats in danger . . . its the entire world.

The Walker kids had it all: loving parents, a big house in San Francisco, all the latest video games. Now the family is moving into Kristoff House, a mysterious place built nearly a century earlier by Denver Kristoff, a troubled writer with a penchant for the occult. House of Secrets is a book that was on my radar for a while, and I just didn't get to reading it when it came out. Being quite a hunk of a book, I dove into it expecting a great adventure story like Percy Jackson or Harry Potter. The Walkers move into a new house that seems too good to be true and sure enough, it is.
The book follows the three Walker family children as they attempt to find a secret book and rescue their parents in the process.
