Allan Corduner is once again impressive in his reading of the fourth installment of the Keys to the Kingdom novels. SIR THURSDAY may be the best yet, thanks to the fast pace of the action and the depth of the characters. Corduner portrays young Arthur Penhaligon, Rightful Heir of the Architect, with just the right touch of growing confidence in his new leadership. Through Corduner's pliant voice we hear Arthur's determination to survive as a draftee in Sir Thursday's army and his bewilderment after he has been "cleaned between the ears." Nix's vivid descriptions of the thorny predicaments of Arthur and his longtime compatriots, Leaf and Suzy, are well served by Corduner's impeccable timing.
