This is an amazing Trilogy. I love the characters and the story line, their interesting, lovable, and fun. I highly recommend this Trilogy to anyone, and if you're not much a reader, the audio book is amazing too. Five Stars!

I don't get why N. D. Wilson isn't a more popular author!!! I don't know anyone that reads his books, but I love, love, LOVE THEM!! Such a good ending to this trilogy! The very last chapters make me sooo happy!!

Nathan Wilson may be one of the most evocative storytellers in literature today. His prose is stellar, his characters believable and his plots intricate but also well realized ahd plausible.
I borrowed these for my eleven year old daughter and ended up staying up at night reading them. They are equally well suited for adults. Read them, you will not regret it.

In Book 3 of the 100 Cupboards series, a 12-year-old boy, Henry, must enter another world to find the legendary and celebrated Chestnut King. Henry’s task is difficult and dangerous. It is also extremely confusing. Are the Chestnut King’s wishes really honorable? And who, really, is the Chestnut King?
