Breathtaking new magical adventure series from the author of Sabriel.
Seven days. Seven keys. Seven virtues. Seven sins. One mysterious house is the doorway to a very mysterious world – where one boy is about to venture and unlock a number of fantastical secrets.
Arthur Penhaligon is not supposed to be a hero. He is supposed to die an early death. But then his life is saved by a key shaped like the minute hand of a clock.
Arthur is safe – but his world is not. Along with the key comes a plague brought by bizarre creatures from another realm. A stranger named Mister Monday, his avenging messengers with bloodstained wings, and an army of dog-faced Fetchers will stop at nothing to get the key back – even if it means destroying Arthur and everything around him.
Desperate, Arthur escapes to the mysterious house that has appeared in town – a house that only he can see. Maybe there he can unravel the secrets of the key – and discover his true fate.
PLUS!! Covermounted with FREE CD-rom, featuring specially created screensavers, wallpaper, author biog and major consumer competition – FIND THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM.
I enjoyed this first book of the Keys to the Kingdom series. Iliked how Arthur learned to believe in himself and how he interacted with Suzy and the Will. I look forward to reading the next book, Grim Tuesday.

A precicious youth who loves fantasy and lots of action would like this book. I get bored of skirmish after skirmish, so I soon lost interest in this book (somewhere on the 4th disk). Could be that it's just not a good book to listen to while driving, too many little details and dozens of characters to straighten out.

Questa saga di Garth Nix, le Chiavi del Regno, è, mi spiace dirlo, alquanto deludente. Dopo aver apprezzato tantissimo Sabriel, Lirael ed Abhorsen, mi aspettavo di meglio. Questo primo libro, Mr Monday, è ancora leggibile e divertente, in quanto nuovo. I successivi, diventano ripetitivi da matti. Però ormai ho letto 4 libri e ne ho comprato un quinto... devo vedere come va a finire.
