Lady Friday, by Garth Nix

Arthur Panhaligon has defeated four of the seven trustees but his week is getting worse and worse…

Sir Thursday is defeated and the Fourth Key is in Arthur Penhaligon’s possession but the New Nithling army is still at large and the Piper will stop at nothing to get his hands on the Fifth Key. And to make things worse Arthur is cut off from the Secondary Realms, and his true home. It also seems that Leaf is missing, lured from her bed to an evil situation in another area of the Secondary Realms.

Just as it seems he has another fight on his hands Arthur receives a tempting offer from Lady Friday, the trustee of the Fifth Key, but is it a cunning trap for The Rightful Heir or a chance he must not miss so as to seize the Key before the Piper or Superior Saturday? Arthur must move swiftly to discover the secrets of the Middle House and to save the future of his friends and family.

This eagerly awaited fifth book in the Award Winning Keys to the Kingdom series is finally here, packed full of excitement and action from the first page to the last. Garth Nix is the only author who could bring this book to life in such a way that the characters and places seem vividly real.

Once more Garth Nix has produced a gripping read.
