House of secrets book genre

I'm delighted to have one of the authors here today to share his top characterisation tips. To celebrate the release of Battle of the Beasts, the second book in the new House of Secrets series from Harry Potter director Chris Columbus, we’ve got copies of first two books in the series to give away to one of our Twitter followers! Just when the Walker kids thought they were safe, the Wind Witch blasts Kristoff House into a crazy world of battles, beasts and cyborgs.
In the Fun Kids Book Club we show you some brand new books, tell you what they’re all about and how to get your hands on them!
This is the first book in the fantasy series, all about three siblings who move to a mysterious house and discover it once belonged to a crazed writer whose stories have come to life! They end up having to battle against deadly pirates, bloodthirsty warriors and even a bone-crunching giant. Remember, you can listen to Fun Kids on DAB Digital Radio in London and online across the UK!


What a multi talent he really is: scriptwriter, director, producer and now – with the help of his writing buddy, Ned Vizzini – an author too. The Walker family have fallen on hard times after Daddy Walker messes up at work and loses his job. At this point, the cynics among us may begin to suspect a slight glitch in this ‘too good to be true’ stroke of luck. Given that this is, after all, a young adult novel, it may be wise for older readers to try their best to ignore the irritating cliches and predictable characters: the angry hormonal teenage girl, the annoying but perceptive kid brother on the brink of puberty and the cute, ever so slightly precocious eight-year old who you just know is destined to perform a heroic stunt. We’ve got 20 complete sets of Joe Abercrombie’s The Shattered Sea trilogy to give away!
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!
Sticking firmly within the young adult market, Columbus and Vizzini introduce a fresh generation of readers to a new series of adventures that will doubtless find their way onto the big screen.


Thinking that their luck is changing, they acquire the mysterious yet luxurious and fully furnished Kristoff House for a suspiciously bargain price. Rightly so, because before you can say “Expelliarmus”, the three Walker children find themselves and their new house transported to a strange land on a mission to unearth a mysterious book of dark, untold powers, which may just help them save their parents and perhaps the world. The plot is simple and a bit too obvious for the adult reader, but the youthful target audience will likely lap this up with excitable glee. Writing about their motivations properly gives the depth, and this will enrich your novel as a whole. No cash alternative or alternative prize is available on entrant’s request, but in the event of the advertised competition prize being unavailable we reserve the right to offer an alternative prize of equal or greater value.
