"A whimsical Sci-Fi novel"
Chandelle and Penn have moved to Philadelphia for the
summer so they can give their daughter some relief from her
rebellious fifteen-year old offspring. They rent a house
unlike any other anywhere on the planet because the home
contains unique features. The back door leads to different
times in earth's past while the front door enables travel
to almost any city on the planet. When their granddaughter
shows up, she is so enchanted and curious by the house that
Lynn reveals the secrets of the house they know and love.
Since Chandelle is uneasy about being alone in the
house or outside it, they arrange for Lynn's first cousin
Lloyd and his Doberman Obsidian to stay with them. In the
attic they find alien artifacts that allow them to
understand any language and transmit a sound so if anyone
goes missing it will be easy to find them. They keep
finding out something new and vital about the house every
day. The only questions left to answer are what is the
purpose of the house and what does it want with them.
Adults and teens will definitely enjoy reading REALITY
CHECK, a work that is pure entertainment. Readers will
delight in solving the riddles of the house and empathize
with the characters, as they stumble the hard way into
learning the different facets of the house. Piers Anthony
has written a work that is fresh, original and fascinating,
but readers need to check their reality prior to entering
the front page.
