I've been reading Robert Liparulo's YA series The Dreamhouse Kings, starting with House of Dark Shadows. Comes a Horseman, a novel for adults, has been out since 2005, and since then the guy has been spitting out novels faster than a mouse on your linoleum floor - ten, according to Wiki, with two more in the works.
Get this, three of his novels for adults are going to be movies, plus the Dreamhouse Kings is going to be made into movies too. All I'm wondering is, where have I been? I've never heard of Liparulo until a couple of months ago, and neither have any of my reading friends. Have you read any of his work? If you like YA + scary + adventure = give this author a try and let me know what you think.
