"A must-read series." —The Washington Post

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?

With The Chestnut King, N. D. Wilson concludes a remarkable, worlds-spanning trilogy that began with one boy and 100 avenues to adventure.

About the Author

At the age of 12 (and thanks to a house fire), N. D. WILSON spent nearly a year living in his grandparents' attic. If there were cupboards in those walls, he never found them. But not for lack of trying.

N. D. Wilson and his wife live in Idaho, along with their four young explorers. For more information, please visit
