Imagine you had 100 different worlds at your fingertips. Henry does in the 100 Cupboards trilogy by N.D. Wilson. Check out Kidzworld’s book review and summary of the final installment, The Chestnut King.


100 Cupboards Summary

What if your very own bedroom held the entrances to 99 different worlds? In N.D. Wilson’s first book in the Cupboards series, 12 year old Henry discovered just that! But having unlimited access to unknown and magical worlds comes with a price. And in Henry’s case, that price is Nimiane, the undying witch. Nimiane is evil and power-hungry. And her greed could potentially destroy every single world. In the final book in the 100 Cupboards trilogy, Henry must seek the help of the Chestnut King, leader of the faeren people.


A Family Torn Apart

But Nimiane’s brainwashed soldiers (known as fingerlings) are hot on Henry’s trail. She wants to bring him to her city of Dumarre. Henry is only reunited with his family for a short while before the fingerlings pull them apart. His father and uncle are scouring the dead land of Endor in search of Nimiane, other members of his family are captured, and others have reached the Chestnut King. Meanwhile, Henry uses his cupboards to bounce around from one place to the next.


The Bottom Line

The Chestnut King concludes N.D. Wilson’s exciting 100 Cupboards trilogy. This action-packed adventure will definitely keep you on your toes. Fantasy fiction fans will recognize the traditional good versus evil plot. But don’t think traditional means uninventive. N.D. Wilson has a few twists up his sleeve that will not disappoint you. This book jumps right into the story without much background information. So if you plan on tackling this series, definitely start from book one, 100 Cupboards.
