The second remarkable installment in The Keys to the Kingdom, from spellbinding bestseller Garth Nix.

Seven days. Seven keys. Seven virtues. Seven sins. One mysterious house is the doorway to a very mysterious world--where one boy is about to venture and unlock a number of fantastical secrets.

Arthur doesn't think he will ever have to return to the strange house that nearly killed him on Monday--the house that contains an entire world. But Tuesday brings new challenges--in the form of an enemy named Grim Tuesday, who threatens the well-being of both Arthur's family and his world. Arthur must retrieve the Second Key from Grim Tuesday in order to save everything--an adventure that will include stealing a Sunship, surviving a very weird work camp, befriending a bear-like spirit, fighting the void-like Nithlings, and traveling in the scary Far Reaches for the ultimate showdown.

Quotes & Awards

  • “As before, Nix creates unusual characters, artifacts, and settings. Once again, Arthur proves himself a worthy hero as he overcomes his fears, weaknesses, and setbacks in order to save the people and the worlds that are depending on him, whether they know it or not. But of course, there will be more challenges to come…Arthur Penhaligon’s adventures are absorbing and entertaining, with worthy characters and thought-provoking situations.

    School Library Journal

  • “Arthur is an earnest young hero and his absurd adventures could well become addictive. So what’s the pub date for book three?”

    " So far this one is my favorite in the series. Again, very strange, but also very intriguing. "

    " Just as exciting as the first. "

    " good/weird "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kai | 1/31/2014

    " Having read Mister Monday, I naturally proceeded to this book, only on account of love for the author Garth Nix and a fair bit of the first book, which to me was mundane most of the time. Luckily, I realized that the Keys to the Kingdom series is far more like one great book with seven chapters, Mister Monday being one long introductory to the whole mythos of the series. Having previously established that slow beginnings don't bode well with me, I am happy to say that in entering the early middle of Garth Nix's chronicle, I am far more entertained, with a well-paced story, interesting characters, and even more interesting elements to a vast Garth Nix universe, I would give this book a sturdy four stars. It was not amazing, but I recommend it to my friends heartily. Thank...the Intelligencer. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 1/25/2014

    " I liked the first book better because the will and the key were both there to help arthur. In this one he is on his own, except for Suzy and tom. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Grillables | 1/19/2014

    " Grim Tuesday's domain is covered in soot and grime. So are most of the characters. The series gets better, right? *sigh* "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 1/18/2014

    " I'm a little dissapointed with this series because I can't help but compare it with the author's Abhorsen trilogy, which I loved. This series is good but I don't love it. However, I must admit I've enjoyed the first two books enough that I will continue to read the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 1/11/2014

    " I had trouble relating to the book and thought that some of the characters were too unrealistic to be believable. The setting was quite often confusing, but I enjoyed the fight with Tuesday and thought it carried the book enough to be enjoyed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jimbo | 12/6/2013

    " Finished on a Tuesday. heh. Reads faster than the first book, and details more of the "House" the books revolve around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommy | 11/1/2013

    " Slightly better than the first if you can believe it. The story continued, and even grew in excitement and intrigue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 10/30/2013

    " I got more into the world this time and could better visualize what was going on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob Ayers | 8/31/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 8/23/2013

    " Building up on the story in the first book Arthur has to battle Grim Tuesday to save his own reality and become master of the Far Reaches. A hard to put down book. Lots of twists and nail biting moments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard Hall | 8/12/2013

    " Really cool. Lots of magic and suspense and a great ending. Even some Sci Fi. Looking forward to the rest of the series. "

    " It was as good as the first one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Maddaford | 9/20/2012

    " This book was a little slower than the first book. I was ready to have a little more interaction with previous characters, but that was kinda sporadic. I love the way each sin is presented in the books so far. The dome with the weird worm thing was really neat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maho | 6/18/2012

    " 5/5 stars from me. Not because 'it was amazing' - it wasn't. It was good. There were some things I didn't like all that much. But overall? This book, especially the last few chapters, gave me so much joy it wouldn't feel right to rate it as anything else than amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wickedshizuku | 4/19/2012

    " Mr. Nix has done it again. He made a very realistic world of the House come alive. I felt the soot that the Far Reaches were clouded with. The tightness in my lungs from not being able to breath clean air. I felt enormous empathy of the indentured slaves. I'm starting to love the character Auther. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faith Bradham | 12/28/2011

    " I'm glad that Grim Tuesday was just about as good as Mister Monday. I also was very happy about how quickly I read it. (160 pages/hr! :)) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hiram Alexander | 10/4/2011

    " All I can say is that it was waaaaay better than Mister Monday! "

    " Read-aloud. We didn't think the author did a good job of capturing what he imagined with words. Things were confusing throughout the story. But we like The main character enough to continue on with book three. "
