    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.

    Honestly, didn't really have high hopes for this one going in. But, it was certainly worth it. I don't know if I'd say it's my current favorite but I really think most people would enjoy it. Chris did a great job with the characters. If you are an imaginative person at heart....you should get a kick out of this. I'm very interested to see where Chris takes this next.

    Since their last adventure, life in the Walker household is much improved. Dahlia Kristoff (aka the Wind Witch) has been banished. And now the Walkers are…rich! The kids are at a new school, Bay Academy Prep, surrounded by the children of bankers and CEOs. But this change in their fortune hasn't brought them happiness. Brendan is having a hard time making friends. Cordelia's worried that her adventures in Denver Kristoff's books have warped her mind - and even her body. And Eleanor just wants things to go back to how they used to be.

    Seemed too rushed to me. Some good mixed with some really bad plot lines. I was expecting more to be honest. Very well read though.
