Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 WEDNESDAY
Trustee of the Architect and Duchess of the Border Sea
has great pleasure in inviting
ARTHUR PENHALIGON
to a Particular Luncheon
of Seventeen Removes

Transport has been arranged
RSVP not required

Its 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...

Review:

"[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

Review:

"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

Synopsis:

The next spellbinding book in best-selling author Garth Nix's magical Keys to the Kingdom series.

Part 3 of the Keys to the Kingdom series. As the narrative continues, Arthur builds more alliances. Unlike the previous two denizens Arthur has vanquished, Drowned Wednesday promises to abdicate in exchange for his help. More of the broader backstory is filled in and the reader learns more about the Architect and her family, as well as the Raised Rats. Meanwhile, the threats in Arthur's own world increase. The speed picks up in this volume, which is a mercy.

I enjoyed this a little more than Grim Tuesday. The setting was a lot of fun, and I loved the Raised Rats. I'm glad that Nix is shaking things up just a little bit, with Wednesday being of a different nature than Tuesday.
