Publisher's Summary

Arthur doesn't think he will ever have to return to the strange house that nearly killed him on Monday, the house that contains an entire world. But Tuesday brings new challenges in the form of an enemy named Grim Tuesday, who threatens the well-being of both Arthur's family and his world. Arthur must retrieve the Second Key from Grim Tuesday in order to save everything; an adventure that will include stealing a Sunship, surviving a very weird work camp, befriending a bear-like spirit, fighting the void-like Nithlings, and traveling in the scary Far Reaches for the ultimate showdown.

Another Garth Nix Success!!!

After reading the first volume in the Keys to the Kingdom series I was excited to read the second. This book contains non-stop engagement and interesting storylines and plots. This series doesn't quite live up to the standard Garth nix set in the Sabriel series. However,the narrator did a fabulous job creating a vocal personality for every character. I would recommend this to any Garth Nix fan.

love this series, I wish the books weren't so expe

I love this book but it's very expensive for being so short. I'd recommend to buy the physical book, 8 bucks on Amazon

Better than the previous book in the series. The narrator stopped pronouncing turquoise wrong, for one thing, lol.

Listened to these as a small(er) child and loved them. Was looking for something to read or listen too and this was my choice. Spectacular.

Fantastical and descriptive, a great performance!

Garth Nix brings to life an impossible world through text, and Allan Corduner breaths life into that world with his wonderful range and tone.

great performance

The narrator is great, his range of characters excellent. See also Septimus Heap Magyk for perhaps his best performance.
Tuesday is not as good a story as Monday, but still wonderfully creative.

Good fun.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes it was time well-spent. 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.

Great sequel.

Enjoyed the books when we first read them. Great audiobook version. Good narrator. Well paced, easy to listen too. Good book for age 9 upwards.
