On the first day, there was mystery. On the second day, there was darkness. On the third day, there were pirates. On the fourth day, there was war.
It's Thursday. Following their adventure on the Border Sea, Arthur and Leaf are set on heading home. But only Leaf can make it through the Front Door. Arthur is blocked because someone–or something–has assumed his identity and it taking over his life.
Before Arthur can take action, his is drafted by the strange Sir Thursday and forced to join the Glorious Army of the Architect. While Leaf tries to banish Arthur's double 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.
Is this a war that Arthur can win . . . or is his only hope to escape it?

Garth Nix was born in 1963 and grew up in Canberra, Australia. He has worked in the publishing industry and currently lives in Sydney, where he is both a marketing communications consultant and a writer.From AudioFile:
Allan Corduner is once again impressive in his reading of the fourth installment of the Keys to the Kingdom novels. SIR THURSDAY may be the best yet, thanks to the fast pace of the action and the depth of the characters. Corduner portrays young Arthur Penhaligon, Rightful Heir of the Architect, with just the right touch of growing confidence in his new leadership. Through Corduner's pliant voice we hear Arthur's determination to survive as a draftee in Sir Thursday's army and his bewilderment after he has been "cleaned between the ears." Nix's vivid descriptions of the thorny predicaments of Arthur and his longtime compatriots, Leaf and Suzy, are well served by Corduner's impeccable timing.
