The 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.

Now the family is moving into Kristoff House, a mysterious place built nearly a century earlier by a troubled fantasy writer. Suddenly the siblings find themselves launched on an epic journey, to retrieve a dark book of untold power and uncover the Walker family's secret history. Oh and save their parents... and maybe even the world.

Soulless money-spinner

This feels like a very calculated attempt to stitch together a bunch of themes and plot lines that a marketing team have decided children like, and then sell the book off the back of Harry Potter director Chris Columbus's name rather than the merits of the story itself. There are also some infuriating gender stereotypes that you really don't expect to see this side of the millennium. I had to give up on it halfway through because it was irritating me so much.
