Through its strengths and weaknesses, Lord Sunday and The Keys to the Kingdom series is an engrossing tale full of memorable characters, exaggerated realities, and a boy struggling to remain human.
I loved loved loved how Nix was able to turn everything we thought we knew about EVERYTHING on its head. I NEVER saw that ending coming and I never even assumed that she was she and he was them and it was so sad about him and her.
Yes, I know that last sentence was a bit confusing, but once you read the book, you'll understand. Arthur went through so much in this last installment and it m ...more

I really enjoyed the book, and as I was nearing the end I thought I was going to be sorely dissapointed. In some of the other novels it seemed as if everything fell into place just in the niche of time, and it was seeming as if this was go ...more

The last few books have been a bit so-so. They felt a bit rushed, I suppose. Perhaps it's because the first half of the series is learning and discovering new things, and setting stuff up, and the second half is about the journey to the final battle.
In some ways, I still felt that things were r ...more
This is definitely the type of book that would have really appealed to me in middle school, I would have loved to find myself in the House on an adventure of some type.
I really enjoyed the world that Nix created in these books, especially the House, my favorite still being Mr. Monday's lower house.
Question to you, dear reader: Is it humanely possible for a book to be more boring than this piece of trash?
I doubt so.
Like - seriously - what is up with this book? It's like Garth Nix has totally run out of good ideas.
After a few unsuccessful tries and about a month of having borrowed this book, I read through two pages, I think. It was a bore, a total fart of a book.
So, I read the e ...more

Hmmm. A modestly unsatisfying ending to a great series. I couldn't get "into" the book this time, perhaps because of the way it jumped between three characters. Also, nothing really got the attention it truly deserved. One major supporting character SPOILER ALERT dies, and it barely gets two paragraphs, and no emotional investment by the other characters. No real buildup either.
But the ending was unexpected in a good Garth Nix way. Disorienting, but powerful.

Well. I finished the Keys to the Kingdom. To be honest, I really liked these books. Garth Nix writes really well. There was just one thing that bothered me. THE NEW ARCHITECT (Dun dun duuuuun!) I mean, was he growing INSIDE of Arthur the whole time?! When Arthur started becoming a Denizen, was that the New Architect, um... Being born? I don't know, but it's been HAUNTING me! The fact that basically everyone else dies? LOVE IT! (Okay, I'm not some type ...more
