Book Four.

We continue with Arthur Penhaligon who is now stuck with two dilemmas. He needs to collect all the Keys but if he keeps using their power he will become a House denizen and couldn't return to his mortal life on Earth. But if he doesn't collect the Keys the world as he knows it will be destroyed. Darned if you do, darned if you don't. In the middle of this mental battle Arthur is suddenly drafted to the House Army. With no way out Arthur becomes a solider and battles creatures of Nothing who are trying to destroy the house. Sir Thursday is the leader in this book who is afflicted with Anger for those keeping track but by the end of the book Sir Thursday had not been punished yet. I expect it to happen in Lady Friday.

So here's the current count:
Mister Monday - Sloth - thrown into pit of snakes
Grim Tuesday - Greed - pot of boiling oil (which in this case is called Nothing)
Drowned Wednesday - Gluttony - forced to eat rats and snakes
Sir Thursday - Anger/Wrath - dismembered alive
