This is the final book in the 100 Cupboards series. Since I had read the first two books, I felt compelled to read the third and I believe final book. For some reason, I didn't find this book quite as engaging as the previous two but I persisted so that I could find some sort of closure as to how, and if, Henry was going to save himself and his family from the witch, Nimiane. The book concludes with some quite unexpected twists and turns to the unusual plot. ( )

AMAZON REVIEW : 8/11/2015 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?
MY REVIEW:
If you love Narnia and Harry Potter, you will LOVE this series. It is all about taking risks,friendship, family, loss, magic, facing your fears and being who you were meant to be.
Loved it and read all 3 books in a row and everyone I have recommended it to has also loved it. ( )

So, here's the plot... Henry is staying with his relatives in Kansas, when their house is transported to a magical world and they must battle an evil witch. OK, Toto, sound familiar?

Well other than getting a general idea of the story, I find myself completely lost while listening to this audiobook. The plot definitely shows promise. In his uncle and aunt's house, Henry discovers a cupboard with 99 doors that lead into other worlds. But, an evil witch, Niniane, must be defeated before she kills Henry and his family. Good overall story and some clever plot twists. So what went wrong? I'm guessing that I had a problem with the narration. This is definitely an example of a narrator overacting a story. There are so many dramatic pauses, that I find myself completely lost as to what is going on. This book has some very high reviews. I might have to revisit this one in print, but the audio version did not work for me. ( )

I agree with a previous reviewer that the ending felt too neat. My other complaint is that the world-building was a bit lacking; though the title of the book is The Chestnut King, we really don't find out much about him and his relationship to the faerie queene. The pacing was a bit stop-and-go; there were several parties, with different parties going different places for different reasons, and parties sometimes splitting up or joining up. All in all it was a bit confusing, and in the end, unnecessary; lots of attention focused on journeys that didn't matter so much and characters who didn't really do anything. The book would've benefited from more focus on the important journeys and characters, and fewer words given to other plotlines and characters.

The book does tie up the Nimiane loose end, and gives you a glimpse into the 'ever after' part of Henry's life. ( )

Book 3 of the series and I'm not really sure what to say. Parts of it were hands-down better than the last book (finding out about Henry's family and battling the Fingerlings) but I can't say I really enjoyed much of it. Fantasy isn't typically my genre of choice and it really doesn't compare with Harry Potter or The Hobbit. ( )

"Tell me pauper son," said the witch Nimiane. "Before I harvest the faren, before I rouse your father to watch his seventh son die, why did you come? You have many portals. You could flee through the worlds and live awhile. Why do you come to your death?" Henry shifted, clenching the grip o his sword. "You know why," he said. "I come because of the words spoken when I received my name. I come because you are the darkness, and I am dandelion fire. You have seen me in your dreams. You know what I can do do you."

In a world tangled in places with this one, both near and far from where we stand, near and far from where our grandfathers are standing as children, near and far from our past, from our now, from our never, there are two seas separated only by a long strong belt of land.
