On the first day, there was mystery. On the second day, there was darkness. On the third day, there were pirates. On the fourth day, there was war.

It's Thursday. Following their adventure on the Border Sea, Arthur and Leaf are set on heading home. But only Leaf can make it through the Front Door. Arthur is blocked because someone– or something–has assumed his identity and it taking over his life.

Before Arthur can take action, his is drafted by the strange Sir Thursday and forced to join the Glorious Army of the Architect. While Leaf tries to banish Arthur's double 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.

Is this a war that Arthur can win . . . or is his only hope to escape it?

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen Gurri | 2/8/2014

    " At this point I keep returning to the series because I like the imagery and texture of the house. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liza | 2/7/2014

    " A good sci-fi King Arthur series for the younger kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cball | 1/28/2014

    " Audio version which continues to be read extremely well by Allan Corduner. The series turns a bit darker with this one as Arthur continues in his quest for the Keys to the Kingdom. He faces his own mortality as he begins to turn more denizen as he is thrust into yet another outer realm. This time it is a battlefield. Arthur is surrounded by all things army/marine (or a denizen version of such) as he attempts to find and take the key from Sir Thursday. Nix's ability to describe this other world continues to keep me entranced. Who else can describe shifting tiles and make me giggle out loud whenever "tile 500/500" is mentioned? And to my delight, The Pied Piper of Hamlin gets a bit more page time, further explaining the Piper's Children in The House. This series will appeal to girls and boys a like and anyone who enjoys Potter. This series is definitely one to be read from book 1 and through sequence. I cannot imagine picking up Sir Thursday as a solo read since the characters and back story have been fleshed out in previous books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy Davie | 1/7/2014

    " Ooh, Thursday's a scary one...nice satire on the military for the adult readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. Bajema | 12/18/2013

    " Sir Thursday is the best book so far in the Keys to the Kingdom series! Arthur decides that there will be no relief from the attacks of the Morrow Days unless he takes a stand. And take a stand he does! Fantastic book, and I cannot wait to read the next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BJ Rose | 12/11/2013

    " OK, I'm just a kid at heart - working my way thru Garth Nix's Keys to the Kingdom. I like the escapism of the totally improbable and impossible - at least, I think it is! And if young Arthur Penhaligon makes you think of Arthur Pendragon, I don't think that's an accident! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wonda | 12/3/2013

    " Characters are growing in experience and maturity, but this one was more depressing than earlier ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 11/17/2013

    " This one will be hard to top! I'm excited to see where the next three books go! "

    " cool :) loved it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 TJ Anderson | 10/23/2013

    " If you like the rest of this series you wont be dissapointed. starting to develop more of a continued plot that was started in book 2. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 7/20/2013

    " Similar plot to the other books, but different setting and some new characters. Still pretty suspensfull and another great "I need to read the next book" ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob Ayers | 3/28/2013

    " An amazing and thrilling book can't wait to read the next three "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jana Gassaway | 12/13/2012

    " Military type books aren't really my thing, but still a good series. i didn't like it as well as the first three books. They seem to be getting shorter and less detailed. I felt like I rushed through the book without ever getting in depth with the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Marie | 6/21/2012

    " Good for the entire library. "

    " Have Arthur go to the army! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 2/25/2012

    " Despite my views on killing and war, I did like this book. Besides it is pretty anti-war for a book about a war. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 kaitlyn | 12/19/2011

    " I don't usually like it when books switch between perspectives, and this book was no exception. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nate | 8/18/2011

    " If you liked the ones before you will like this one as well. "

    " Sir Thursday 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 | 4/3/2011

    " Okay I am now more than halfway through the week of stories.
    Must finish the rest of the books to see if Arthur will save the world. "

  • 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 3/10/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennie | 1/14/2011

    " I love how each part of the will, and each steward, is so different and has such a different backstory. Moving on to Lady Friday with a cliffhanger! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 1/1/2011

    " The series continues well with some great concepts like the maze in this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lonnie | 12/21/2010
