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!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 2/18/2014

    " This fantasy series has been loads of fun. Only two more to go and that's kind of sad. Arthur is a serious trooper. Would love to see Susie Blue on screen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nic | 2/13/2014

    " This was still decent, but I really like the earlier books a lot and thus was a bit disappointed. Leaf got a lot of screen time, and I find her a less-interesting character than Arthur or Suzy even when she (Leaf) isn't spending a whole paragraph calculating the diameter of a circle. I would not have guessed from the rush of the earlier books that Book Five would actually include the equation pi r squared. Really, though, I think that was just part of the main issue I had with this book, which was that Nix puts a hold on the action to describe the world too much. The earlier books have a lot of description, but I think it's handled better. The world he's built is fantastic, and I want to know about it, but I really don't need to know the diameter of a circular building when our point-of-view character has been captured by Lady Friday's henchpeople and is being taken we-don't-know-where. "

    " Excellent read. It maintained the same fast pace of Sir Thursday and we see the hero accept the power that has passed on to him. Nix weaves the mystery of Arthur, the purpose of Superior Saturday, the enigmatic Lord Sunday and the warring Pied Piper in a great tale of adventure. Definitely worth the read. "

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

    " Pretty much like the earlier books. Although it seems that the resolutions seem to come too easy in these later books. I am losing interest in the series, especially since I dont know how long I will have to wait to read the final two books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh | 1/8/2014

    " More adventures of Arthur as he attempts to claim his rightful role as the heir of the architect. Not that he wants the job, but he is rather forced into it. This book seemed to be just setting up later books, and as such it lacked a little bit of punch, but I'll definitely read the next two as they come out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Cocchiola | 1/4/2014

    " It was better then the ones before! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tigerlily | 12/31/2013

    " This book was the creepiest one in my opinion. I was really weirded out after I finished. But it was still awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaden | 12/30/2013

    " This book was a little weird. But all in all a good adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 11/26/2013

    " Love this one too! Can't wait for "Saturday" to come out next April! It sure got a bit darker in this episode! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Davies | 11/21/2013

    " I liked this one, we seem to be getting back on track, but to long - Garth get to the point quicker it doeas not add to the suspence if we waffle for 5 pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 10/20/2013

    " Had the hardest time getting through this one of the whole series. I found that I had almost zero interest in the Arthur side of the plot, and just slightly more interest in Leaf's storyline. I'm glad I only have two books to go. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jandi | 10/17/2013

    " It was okay...not that great though... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristel | 3/19/2013

    " A solid addition to one of my favourite young adult series. The Keys to the Kingdom books don't get nearly enough love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gus | 1/18/2013

    " Great book and really spinning an interesting story about this young boy Arthur's life and experiences both within and outside of the "House" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Stephens | 1/4/2013

    " I enjoyed the book lady friday because it was thrilling.This book is in a series so i would perfer to read another book of its kind.I would recommened this book to other people because of how great the story line is.My favorite part is when Arthor defeated lady fiday. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackamo | 10/13/2012

    " A continuing fun chapter in the Kings to the Kingdom series. These are a great filler for those of you waiting for Harry Potter releases (of course, that is almost over). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grant | 8/5/2012

    " It wasn't as good I was hoping it to be but it was still good enough. There were interesting parts to the book though. I thought that the coolest inventions was the paper clothes and the textually charged water. However, some real *cough cough* stuff is happening in the House. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 9/14/2011

    " Getting rather rote & predicatable. Still love the characters and it is fine for a listen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nafiza | 8/4/2011

    " I like whatever Garth Nix writes. Fact. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faith Bradham | 5/2/2011

    " Arg, my library doesn't have the next book in the series yet ... annoying! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melinda | 4/9/2011

    " so good so good so good!!!! can't wait to start the next one....like now! "

    " Lady Friday by Garth Nix

    The Keys to the Kingdom series of books are excellent. They're a great read for all ages. I'm eighteen, only on Friday and I definately intend to finish the series! Garth Nix is a great YA author and I look forward to more work from him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 4/4/2011

    " Two more books in the series.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 3/23/2011

    " Ooooh, blech. If I didn't love this series so much and if I didn't love the characters so much and if I didn't just CARE, then this book, this book, oy, this book drove me to distraction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yenny | 3/15/2011

    " I do believe that I am reading the series a lot faster than I would have imagined and I believe that this is the result of how good the books are. I wont go ranting on like I have with all the rest of the series but this, was like the others, amazing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisa | 1/22/2011

    " This one was okay, but I get the feeling Nix is rushing here, but I do appreciate the effort, especially while juggling the huge cast of characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Qing | 1/14/2011

    " Sometimes I just want the week to end =P Makes me glad there's only 7 days in a week... Bring on the weekend!!! "
