Following their adventures in the Border Sea, Arthur and Leaf head for home. But only Leaf gets through the Front Door. Arthur is blocked because someone or something has assumed his identity and is taking over his life. Before Arthur can take action, he is drafted by Sir Thursday and forced to join the Glorious Army of the Architect. The Army has its headquarters in the Great Maze, a defensive area of the House. Half of the Maze has already been dissolved by Nothing, and hordes of Nithlings emerge regularly to attack the rest. If the Nithling invasion can overcome the Army and the Great Maze, the House will be lost and the whole universe destroyed. While Leaf tries to banish Arthur's doppelganger on Earth, Arthur must survive his basic training, avoid getting posted to the Front and work out how he can free Part Four of the Will and gain the Fourth Key from Sir Thursday.

The room was bigger inside than it should have been, but Arthur hardly even noticed this sort of thing anymore. It was common in the House.

They had learned to follow orders first and think about them afterwards.
They were becoming soldiers.

The long metal points of these spears started to glow as they were lifted up, and wisps of black smoke coiled towards the ceiling. Many a roof or a companion’s uniform had been set alight by recruits with power-spears.

She’d picked up a broom from somewhere and was brandishing it with a technique that suggested past lessons in kendo or perhaps a role in a stage musical of _Robin Hood_.

Quote School Library Journal's reviews "Gr 6-8-The week just gets longer for Arthur Penhaligon in this fourth book in the series. After Drowned Wednesday's submission of the Will and her subsequent death, he is tricked into joining Sir Thursday's army as they fight a large group of NITHLINGS in a shifting maze. To complicate matters, Arthur must serve as one of the Piper's children, unable to use his powers as the Heir of the Will. Back on Earth, a NITHLIN, disguised as Arthur, is infecting mortals with a plague that controls their minds." Unquote

There's a spelling error.

Because of the series story arc the individual books don't stand well on their own, and it's frustrating. So many unresolved, unexplained elements. The world building is interesting, though.
