Publisher's Summary

When Herny York found 99 cupboards hidden behind his bedroom wall, he never dreamed they were doors to entirely new worlds! Unfortunately, Henry's discovery freed an ancient, undying witch, whose hunger for power would destroy every world connected to the cupboards and every person whom Henry loves. Henry must seek out the legendary Chestnut King for help. Everything has a price, however, and the Chestnut King;s desire may be as dangerous as the witch herself.

N. D. Wilson concludes a remarkable, worlds-spanning journey that began with one boy and 100 avenues to adventure.

Masterfully written and read!

N. D. Wilson is a master storyteller and world-builder. I will never look at a dandelion the same way again! Russell Horton’s interpretation of this story is spot-on. I love the subtle cadence and inflection he gives to each character. Top notch performance all around.

LOVED it!

Russell Horton is an excellent narrator and made each character come alive. There were some good surprised at the end and left me feeling satisfied. My children (8.5 & 10) are a few chapters behind me and loving it as still
well. I can't wait to hear their thoughts add they finish the book!

Great Family Road Trip Read

My husband and I read this on a road trip years ago while traveling back and forth between family and school. It was a fun read that my husband especially enjoyed because of the baseball references and the very alive characters.

We recently shared it with our children. Our youngest at age 8 asked if it was the last book in the story. I thought she was ready for it to be done so that she could put in a movie or something, which is normally her request. I was surprised when I told her that is was the last book in the series she was disappointed. She wanted to know what happened to all the lives she'd been drawn into in this very good read! Fun , strong characters and a great adventure.

One of the best since...

The Chestnut King is the finale to a wonderful trilogy and Nathan Wilson is probably the best author of this genre since Tolkein and Lewis.

Very well and clearly narrated... Listened to it several times now and it doesn't get stale.

Perfect Ending

What did you love best about The Chestnut King?

Perfect Ending for the series

What did you like best about this story?

the Progress in the story was much better and faster than the past two books and everything came together perfectly.

What does Russell Horton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

omg. i'll read any book Russel Horton narrate.. he is just simply awesome. i lived every page every line he read, i felt as if every character was a live and was performed by a different person.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book definitely is darker than the past two books which meant more crying on my end haha. but i loved it a lot. it brought a perfect conclusion to the story and made me feel sad and a bit lonely knowing there isn't any more to the story.

Brilliant finale to the series!

Listened to the 100 cupboards trilogy during our 5000km summer road trip. I can"t think of a better way to get through the long day drives than listening to this masterpiece! Brilliant, highly recommended. My kids loved it (aged 8, 9, 10, 11).
