The much awaited sequel to the House of Secrets is here!

I know some of you who have already read House of Secrets by Chris Columbus and Ned Vizzini last year, have been waiting for the sequel with baited breath!


The waiting is over …copies of Battle of the beasts were loaded into OverDrive last night and are available for checkout HERE:


House of secrets is great for fans of epic fantasy stories like Percy Jackson and Harry Potter.

What happens in this book?

Book two in the bestselling HOUSE OF SECRETS series. Get ready for another action-packed adventure! Just when the Walker kids thought they were safe, the Wind Witch blasts Kristoff House into a crazy world of battles, beasts and cyborgs. From the searing heat and clashing swords of the Colosseum, to the snow-capped Tibetan mountains and some seriously freaky monks – the stakes have never been higher! Can the Walkers save the world? Again? Brendan, Cordelia and Nell better be prepared to fight for their lives...

If you haven't read the first book….

What is the series about?


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….
