Garth Nix is the New York Times best-selling author of the Seventh Tower series, as well as the acclaimed novels SABRIEL, LIRAEL, and ABHORSEN. He lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife and children.From AudioFile:
Arthur Penhaligon, reluctant heir to the kingdom, returns to face the third Day. After dealing with Mister Monday and Grim Tuesday, Arthur is surprised that Drowned Wednesday needs his help. Lady Wednesday, trapped in the body of a behemoth whale, is willing to surrender the third key to Arthur in exchange for his conquering the villain Feverfew. This story of pirates, a talking carp, and plenty of Nothing is up to par with the first book in the series. Allan Corduner delightfully presents the myriad of creatures with a mix of formality and whimsy. He does a masterful job with the dark characters and subtle humor of this imaginative fantasy.
