On the first day, there was mystery. Arthur Penhaligon is not supposed to be a hero. He is, in fact, 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 ventures into a mysterious house- a house that only he can see. It is in this house that Arthur must unravel the secrets of the key-and discover his true fate. The first book of a spellbinding series by Garth Nix, the author of The Seventh Tower, Sabriel, Lirael, and Abhorsen.From the Compact Disc edition.

    I love listening to Garth Nix. I find his writing amazing, and love the time in his book. The narrator was amazing too.
