Book: The Chestnut King

Wilson, N.D. (2010). The chestnut King. New York, NY: Random House, Inc

Genre:  Fantasy, Sci-fi

Reading/Interest Level: Ages 10+

Similar Titles: 100 Cupboards, Dandelion Fire

Plot: This is the third book in the trilogy. Things got rather dicey in the last book, but we at least know that Darius has been defeated…but things are not all rainbows and sunshine yet! The evil witch Nimiane is able to enter Henry's dreams and she has also captured the royal family. His family is captured, and Henry and Henrietta are on the run. Things are looking bad as Nimiane uses her power to send forces after Henry with the intent to capture him – Henry has no choice but to go and ask for the aid of the Chestnut King. Will the Chestnut King be able to help? Or will his price be too high?

Personal Thoughts: This third book gets even darker as things begin to reveal themselves and Henry is forced to make important choices. The book offers a conclusion to all the questions readers may have had about the cupboards. There is still a little humor mixed in with some of the horror, making it an exciting read.
