Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the fourth day there was war...

Following their adventures in the Border Sea, Arthur and Leaf head for home. But only Leaf gets through the Front Door. Arthur is blocked because someone — or something — has assumed his identity and is taking over his life.

Before Arthur can take action, he is drafted by Sir Thursday and forced to join the Glorious Army of the Architect. While Leaf tries to banish Arthur's doppleganger on earth, Arthur must survive his basic training, avoid getting posted to the Front and work out how he can free Part Four of the Will.

Review:

"Reluctant or hard to fit readers will find this series enjoyable, as Nix is able to create vivid pictures in the minds of his readers. Fans of the fantasy genre will appreciate these books for their strong continuity, believable characters, and edge-of-your-seat-action." School Library Journal

Review:

"Nix's series is one of the more original and complex fantasies currently being published. It is well written, action packed, imaginative, and full of quirky memorable characters..." VOYA

Review:

"Just as in the previous three books in the series, Nix spins an intricate tale of deception and survival. The only caution: The series is best read in order to understand the complete story." Alan Review

Review:

"Mixing medieval fortresses and tactics with sci-fi 'Not-Horses' and 'New Nithlings,' Nix is obviously having fun." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

Following their adventure on the Border Sea, Arthur and Leaf are set on heading home. But only if Leaf can make it through the front door. Arthur is blocked because someone — or something — has assumed his identity and is taking over his life.

Shoshana, May 17, 2008 (view all comments by Shoshana)
Part 4 of the Keys to the Kingdom series. Unable to go home due to maliciousness and chaos within the House, Arthur is conscripted unwillingly into Sir Thursday's army. The Piper's Children play a larger role, the Will grows more powerful and officious, and Arthur gains more useful skills. However, each time he uses the Keys, he moves that much closer to becoming a denizen himself. Meanwhile back home, Leaf must fight a creature that has taken Arthur's form and identity.
