A mind-bending supernatural thriller from the creators of "This Present Darkness" and "Saint."
Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker--two of the most acclaimed writers of supernatural thrillers--have joined forces for the first time to craft a story unlike any you've ever read. Enter "House"--where you'll find yourself thrown into a killer's deadly game in which the only way to win is to lose . . . and the only way out is in.
The stakes of the game become clear when a tin can is tossed into the house with rules scrawled on it. Rules that only a madman--or worse--could have written. Rules that make no sense yet must be followed.

More About Ted Dekker & Frank E. Peretti
Ted Dekker (born October 24, 1962) is a New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty novels. He is best known for stories which could be broadly described as suspense thrillers with major twists and unforgettable characters, though he has also made a name for himself among fantasy fans.
Dekker was born to missionaries who lived among the headhunter tribes of Indonesia. Because his parents’ work often included extended periods of time away from their children, Dekker describes his early life in a culture to which he was a stranger as both fascinating and lonely. It is this unique upbringing that forced him to rely on his own imagination to create a world in which he belonged.
After leaving Indonesia, Dekker graduated from a multi-cultural high school and took up permanent residence in the United States to study Philosophy and Religion. Upon earning his Bachelor’s Degree, he entered the corporate world and proceeded to climb the proverbial ladder. But his personal drive left him restless and, after many successful years, he traded corporate life for wide range of entrepreneurial pursuits that included buying and selling businesses, healthcare services, and marketing.
In the early nineties while visiting a friend who had just written a book, Dekker decided to pursue a long held desire to be a novelist. Over the course of two years he wrote two full length novels before starting from scratch and rewriting both. Now fully enamored by the the process and the stories, he realized that storytelling was in his blood and a new obsession to explore truth through story gripped him anew.
He sold his business, moved his family to the mountains of Western Colorado and began writing full-time on his third novel. Two years and three novels later his first novel was published.
Dekker’s novels have sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Two of his novels, Thr3e and House, have been made into movies with more in production. Dekker resides in Austin, Texas with his wife Lee Ann and two of their daughters.

Almost great. Almost ruined by the preaching. Nov 9, 2008
A very entertaining and imaginative horror novel with some great twists in the story and some good suspense. By about 300 pages in though, the novel becomes overtly Christian and starts to preach, a lot.
Without the cringe iducing final 50 or so pages I would have given this 5 stars. It gets 4 because it was excellent up until then.
Didn't really care which one of four would be terminated in the book Nov 3, 2008
I have read several books from both authors. Because of this my expectations are high. Dekker is normally a master of plot twists and clearly presenting good vs.evil. Dekker sometimes struggles with full character development. The plot twists were lost on me because the character development was so poor. I was hoping that the serial killer would win in this book so that the whining of multiple characters would end and the book would end. I didn't appreciate a single character.
Jack and Stephanie are husband and wife and no reason for either of them to be hero's in this book. Because they lost a child, we as readers are supposed to see them as potential heros??? Jack spends most of the book looking at the other woman. Stephanie should have stayed locked in the closet in this book. Randy is not staged correctly to poise him as a tool for evil later on in the book.
The person that seems to be the most repentant for their own situation, dies first. So much for redemption.
Actually liked the evil tin man for a while until he started pouting and throwing a tantrum in one of the closing chapters. I would say more, yet would give away too much of the book.
Go read these authors' other books!(Thr3e, Adam, Visitation, A child called Blessed, A man called blessed, obsessed, blink, showdown)
There is some hope for the movie coming out because the visuals could be interesting. Debating if I am going to see the movie.
House - audiobook version review Oct 14, 2008
For me, House was strange, repetitive, and disappointing. The same scenes seem to happen over and over, and the action is difficult to follow. The narrator did a good job, but there were a few editing mistakes. I didn't finish the story - and don't need to find out how it ends. Try some other works by these authors - they can both write a great book, but this work does not reflect their talent.
Intriguing Oct 14, 2008
This was a page turner. They did a good job with the description, some parts are really creepy. The ending, however, wasn't too good.
Extremely Dissapointed Oct 9, 2008
I like to find Christian authors for enlightenment combined with entertainment. I have not read any of Ted Dekker other books; however, I have read almost all of Peretti and was disappointed from this book to the point where I would actually write a review. Finished the book like a bad movie just to get it over with.
