Description

Breathtaking new magical adventure series from the author of Sabriel. 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 Penhaligon is not supposed to be a hero.

He is supposed to die an early death. But then his life is saved by a key shaped like the minute hand of a clock. Arthur is safe - but his world is not. Along with the key comes a plague brought by bizarre creatures from another realm.

A stranger named Mister Monday, his avenging messengers with bloodstained wings, and an army of dog-faced Fetchers will stop at nothing to get the key back - even if it means destroying Arthur and everything around him. Desperate, Arthur escapes to the mysterious house that has appeared in town - a house that only he can see.

Maybe there he can unravel the secrets of the key - and discover his true fate. PLUS!! Covermounted with FREE CD-rom, featuring specially created screensavers, wallpaper, author biog and major consumer competition - FIND THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM.

Part 1 of the Keys to the Kingdom series

I think this is a very strong start to a series of books. Nix again proves he is an inventive story teller. I was hooked from the start.This should appeal to Rowling, Pullman etc. fans.

The first in a series of seven books. I didn't bother to read the other six. Stock YA fantasy.

I loved the world Garth Nix creates.

I read it and expect I'll read the others, but not half as good as the Abhorsen series. It just wasn't very surprising in the ideas it had.
