The bestselling and highly acclaimed 100 Cupboards series comes to an action-packed conclusion, The Chestnut King. Perfect for readers who love Percy Jackson, the Unwanteds, and Beyonders!
When Henry York found 99 cupboards hidden behind his bedroom wall, he never dreamed they were doors to entirely new worlds. Exploring them with his cousin Henrietta was all the action and adventure an overprotected boy could imagine. But Henry’s discovery also released the undying witch Nimiane, whose hunger for power could destroy every world connected to the cupboards—and every person whom Henry loves. Now Henry must seek out the legendary Chestnut King to answer the unanswerable: How do you kill someone who cannot die?

The Chestnut King (100 Cupboards Book 3)
An impossible challenge achieved by a unique method pulled out of the author's amazing imagination. I love this series. It has so much going for it. Some of my favorite parts are Rags the raggant, the humor, ordinary things like baseball, portals to everywhere, a salt water marsh/waterfall in the middle of Kansas, and descriptions wordsmithed out of pure poetry. One of the best middle grade fiction series I've read.
