Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The penultimate book in Garth Nix's masterpiece series!

The secret of his own identity.

The identity of The Architect.

The complete Will of the House.

The fulfillment of his fate.

Arthur Penhaligon is getting closer and closer to these things... but not without risks, conflict, and adventure.

About the Author

Shoshana, November 15, 2008 (view all comments by Shoshana)
In contrast to previous episodes, the sixth installment of the Keys to the Kingdom series ends on a literal cliffhanger and does not in any way stand alone. Though this may disappoint some readers who want each volume to provide some closure, it neatly parallels the changes in the House, which is being destroyed and collapsing into Nothing, sometimes at Arthur's heels. As Superior Saturday strives to disrupt the levels of the house to penetrate the Incomparable Garden of Lord Sunday, the tidy structure of one book for each day is also disrupted. Though the action is briskly paced and interesting, the real story is Arthur's maturation. As he wields the power of the keys on behalf of others and to save himself, he becomes less human and more Denizen. Though Denizens are powerful and attractive, Arthur also finds himself becoming more aggressive and contemptuous. This process of becoming the other is, of course, a metaphor for becoming an adult, and this aspect of the story is similar to the developmental metaphor of Donohue's The Stolen Child.
