Format: Hardcover
I confess that I was probably a third of the way through THE CHAMBER IN THE SKY when I realized that this was the fourth book in the series that began with THE GAME OF SUNKEN PLACES. And that the name of M. T. Anderson's series is The Norumbegan Quartet. "Quartet" means four, of course. Wait, does that mean this is the last one? It's just not possible!

Wrapping up the series seemed, at that point, impossible, not only because the action was still flowing (as it were) so fast and furiously, but also because it seems impossible to comprehend that this rich, crazily imaginative world that Anderson has concocted in three previous books should just cease to exist.

THE CHAMBER IN THE SKY opens at a moment of crisis. Brian and Gregory's parents, back in Vermont and surrounded by the evil Thusser Horde intent on taking over the world (or at least New England), are convinced their sons are kidnapped or dead. It turns out they may be in an even worse place --- deep in the bowels (literally) of the Great Body, the monumental realm that the Norumbegans (the Thussers' opponents in the out-of-control game that Brian and Gregory have been playing) created to control and channel reality.

This time, they're accompanied by Gwynyfer, future Duchess of the Great Body's Globular Colon. She is attractive, to be sure --- and has certainly caught Gregory's eye --- but is also incredibly tiresome, and she seems all too willing to chuck the whole crisis in favor of a few days of skiing or spa pampering: "Wouldn't it be delish to relax for a few days?" she asks as certain disaster approaches. "I, for one, would be glad for a dip in the reflecting pool and a maidservant to rub my feet with pumice stone.

The thing is, this is one of those series that takes you smack into a different world, one that maybe you aren't that happy to leave, although the creature within which most of the story takes place is waking up and maybe it would be best just to stay back on Earth. But the plot takes up about .2 seconds after book 3 ends, and in fact if it wouldn't have made for such a massive volume this series might have been a trilogy. So the two boys, the mechanical troll Kalgash, and Gwynifer the teenaged (equivalent) elvish girl are virtually on their own getting rid of the Thusser and simultaneously setting up a separate realm for "mannequins" back in old Norumbega, on Earth. It isn't easy, but if you want to know how they do it, you'll just have to read this book. After, of course, you read book 3, which you will read after you read book 2, which, naturally, you will read right after you read book 1, "The Game of Sunken Places." Got that? Good! So get it!

Loved this book and the series. It was a nice little ending that left you changed. Would have liked it if the outcome was a bit more of a nice ending like the first book but still wonderful story.
