Wednesday Weeks and the Dungeon of Fire
Published: July 2022
The third and final novel in the Wednesday Weeks series is as vibrant, clever and all-round delightful as its predecessors, blending adventure, science and fantasy. Tyrannical goblin king Gorgomoth the Unclean is back, this time threatening to plunge the Nine Realms into the Third Age of Never-Ending Darkness. Apprentice sorcerers Wednesday and Alfie and their friends must not only beat him to the long-lost Stone of Power, but also pass three trials to prove their worthiness of its ancient power.
It’s a hectic race that our brave and resourceful protagonists must navigate, overcoming such challenges as tomato sauce geysers and a high-speed pizza-train chase through a live volcano. Dungeon of Fire is the kind of bizarre jamming-up of traditional fantasy with modern-day conceptions that we’ve come to love from this duo of authors.
And as with the other Wednesday Weeks novels, there are fun, story-related STEM-based activities at the end of the book.
