Synopses & Reviews
Four of the seven Trustees have been defeated and their Keys taken, but for Arthur, the week is still getting worse. Suzy Blue and Fred Gold Numbers have been captured by the Piper, and his New Nithling army still controls most of the Great Maze. Superior Saturday is causing trouble wherever she can, including turning off all the elevators in the House and blocking the Front Door.
Amidst all this trouble, Arthur must weigh an offer from Lady Friday that is either a cunning trap for the Rightful Heir or a golden opportunity he must seize before he's beaten to it!
"As always, Nix's writing is witty and the plays on words are entertaining. The author gives just enough new information to keep the series' fans coming back for more..." School Library Journal
"This endeavor has Nix's imagination working at full speed....Arthur is an attractive hero. He is honest and faithful, and as he grows into his otherworldly role, one can only cheer him on in hopes that he will somehow manage to retain his sympathetic mortal nature." Children's Literature
"[W]onderful and extremely complex....Eccentric characters, wonderfully literalized metaphors, and difficult moral decisions abound here, and the book should further delight Nix's many fans." VOYA
