Keys To the Kingdom #03: Drowned Wednesdayby Garth Nix
Synopses & Reviews
No rest for poor Arthur Penhaligon. As Grim Tuesday ends, he discovers a square of stiff cardboard under his pillow, gilt-edged and inscribed with the following words:
LADY WEDNESDAYIts an invitation he cannot refuse. From hospital room to the high seas, Arthur finds himself on an adventure that will pit him against pirates, storms, explosions of Nothing-laced gunpowder, and a vast beast that eats everything it encounters. Through it all, he is drawn deeper into the central mystery of the House. Arthur must find the third part of the Will and claim the Third Key not just for himself, but for the millions (if not trillions) who will suffer if he doesn't.
The first step? Surviving life aboard ship on the Border Sea...
"[A]nother great entry with a cliff-hanger ending." School Library Journal
"[T]hose who appreciated the freewheeling invention of Mister Monday (2003) and Grim Tuesday (2004) will emerge from the third book with enthusiasm unabated." Booklist
"Nix is endlessly inventive, and his latest book is another thrill ride....[T]eens who love highly original fantasy will eat this one up." VOYA
The next spellbinding book in best-selling author Garth Nix's magical Keys to the Kingdom series.
Everyone is after Arthur Penhaligon. Strange pirates. Shadowy creatures. And Drowned Wednesday, whose gluttony threatens both her world and Arthur's.
With his unlimited imagination and thrilling storytelling, Garth Nix has created a character and a world that become even more compelling with each book. As Arthur gets closer to the heart of his quest, the suspense and mystery grow more and more intense. . . .
