Drowned Wednesday by Garth Nix

Link to Amazon summary: Drowned Wednesday (Keys to the Kingdom, Book 3)

So my concern after book 2 was that the series was going to get predictable. I think Nix did an excellent job of walking the line. The series didn't take a huge turn in direction, but the resolution at the end came about in some new ways and with some new people. My only criticism is that it felt a bit rushed, almost like it was time for the book to end, so everything just kind of worked out for the hero. It wasn't way obvious, rather just a hint of "I have to get it done in the chapter" kind of feeling. Still a good book, but I doubt that this book will be my favorite of the series.
