They’ve been to three worlds in less than a day. Time isn’t just running out … it’s running wild.

David King is reeling from his travels through history—and from the evil he’s found there. The last thing he needs is his great-great-uncle Jesse’s hospital-bed instructions: You can’t simply do nothing. You must fix things.

David and his brother Xander’s search for their abducted mother has repeatedly led them on strange and terrifying journeys as they’ve stepped through the portals of the creepy old house and into some of history’s most turbulent moments—and confronted an unimaginably bleak vision of the future. Now Jesse’s words saddle them with an obligation not only to visit the past but to rewrite it.

Fulfilling their purpose will take everything they have, both mentally and physically. But they have no choice … because everything in the past—and the future—is on the line.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandee Terry | 2/10/2014

    " I love this series! I read this book in an hour - it was a real page turner from start to finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 2/9/2014

    " The Dreamhouse series continues. This is one of the better books in the series, an action packed page turner. In the span of 24 hours, David and Xander travel from the Civil War to a medieval torture chamber to the Alps and the middle of a deadly battle involving Hannibal and, finally, to Atlantis. They are learning how to change history for the better but are no closer to finding their mother. In fact, they may be stuck in Atlantis forever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Breidenbach | 2/4/2014

    " Full of adventure and intrigue. Very vivid and imaginative characters, settings, situations. The reading level felt appropriate to young adult, but possibly too vivid for middle school. But then, I'm a very visual reader and Robert's descriptions are intense! I enjoyed the "real" world feel to the fantasy world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Noble | 2/1/2014
