Daniel had two parts to him; there was the boy everyone saw, and then another part of him, a part he shoved away and disassociated himself from for so long. That part of him was a murderer, and the thing that came tearing into his closet one night resonated with that part of him. Its name was Phearus, it had been damaged, its memories were unclear, and it was hunting the worst of man to feed to the thing, hunting it through the tear. Just as Daniel resonated with it, it in turn became part of him, and in time Daniel sought to feed that lost part of him, drawing him closer to Phearus who had long been absent from the cupboard in the pink house. Just as Phearus was starting to think of Daniel as his son, he was torn from 1981 into the future of another dimension, and he will do whatever it takes to get back to him before history says he disappeared.

Fictional historical meets futuristic sci-fi all rolled into the timeline of a single being is precisely what you'll get if you pick up TK Rising's Pink House. Gods, turf wars, human meddling, primitive natures, and of course, the hunt. The book follows two main plot lines, the first of Daniel, a boy turned serial killer, and the second of Phearus Elconn, son of Godriel Elconn and heir to the greatest house on Alta. There are some tense situations and times where you really don't know who to root for. This character-driven plot will push you to the edge of your seat with some of the atmospheric and gripping scenes you'll encounter. Horror, time travel, gods, and mortals all wrapped in a tightly woven story filled with its own unique complexities. It is the third book of the Blue Star series but information about the multi-verses, territory control and events are explained at the front to allow the reader to simply pick up the book and enjoy.

Pink House (Blue Star Book 3) by TK Rising is young adult fantasy novel with a touch of science fiction that also explores time travel. We first meet Daniel as a young boy living with his mum. After leaving her abusive partner, Daniel’s mum manages to pull the family together (Daniel and her). Everything seems to be going smoothly, despite the financial struggles, until Daniel’s father shows up demanding to have the boy back. Daniel is in great turmoil as he recollects the previous events which still plague his mind. The weird flashing lights, the horrific sounds, and the later arrival of the alien through his closet introduce him to a whole new world. With time he learns the alien’s name and his ways. A bond between them develops that will continue for years.

There are many interesting twists in Pink House by TK Rising. So much goes on with each passing moment that it is easy to remain transfixed while reading. What started as an ordinary narrative took a whole different turn as I kept turning the pages. TK Rising also touches on the pain of abuse through the character of Daniel’s mother, who suffers emotional, sexual and physical abuse at different stages of her life. The plot is exhilarating and when time travel and planet invasion are introduced in later parts of the book, they take the reader on an extra roller coaster ride. There are great aspects of Pink House, but perhaps the best is its ability to captivate.

Daniel seems like a sweet, innocent little boy, but the truth is that he will do anything to protect his mother and her memory. But as he continues to grow up, he becomes something even more dangerous and, with the past he’s overcome, it may be no surprise why he becomes what he is. But what about Phearus? The strange creature that comes from a completely new dimension? When Phearus is sucked into a new time and dimension, however, it may take a great deal more to get him back to where he wants to be. With the Vanguard arriving and a mix of different dimensions and timelines being forced together, there’s no telling what could happen next in Pink House by TK Rising.

If you’re looking for action, then you’re definitely in the right place because this book is all about action. There are plenty of characters going through an array of different situations, but even more than that, there are dimensions that cross, flex and intertwine in a completely different way. Will Rivera and the rest be able to send Phearus and the Vanguard back to their own dimensions? Will the alien creatures take over everything? There’s no telling what could happen next in this book, and there’s no way of knowing if they’ll make it back to where they want to be. Even more, you never know what all of the other characters are going to do, including Tristan, Jewel, Makka, and so much more. Pink House is a book that will make you think and keep you guessing along the way.
