On the fourth day there was war. Following their adventures in the Border Sea, Arthur and Leaf head for home. But only Leaf gets through the front door.

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

Great Story and Reader

My kids (age 13 and 10) and I have really enjoyed this series. We are so disappointed to find that the next book will not be out until March.

Definitely keeps you on the edge, the writing style is suspenseful but fun. The characters are interesting and different.

So good, this series is so amazing, and unique

This series is so good and is constantly leaving me on the edge of my seat although I have already read it before. The plotline is riveting and unique something difficult to find at times when you've read a lot of books.

Nice

The narrator did an excellent voice for Sir Thursday the character. It can't be easy to convincingly sound angry and still the enunciate the words of the book clearly!

Good Fun

Would you try another book from Garth Nix and/or Allan Corduner?

I have other books by Garth Nix, The abhorsen series..those where horrible.

Would you be willing to try another book from Garth Nix? Why or why not?

Was Sir Thursday worth the listening time?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

The entire series is aimed more toward children however I enjoyed it and had a lot of fun. The narrator does an excellent job with his different voices.
