The Keys To The Kingdom: Superior Saturday Rating: 2


Author: Garth Nix

Superior Saturday is the sixth book in The Keys to the Kingdom series, a popular sci-fi/fantasy series by Garth Nix. You may know Garth Nix for his other science fiction and fantasy book for young adults, The Seventh Tower series and the Abhorsen Trilogy.


The Sixth Key

The ongoing story follows 12 year old Arthur Penhaligon (not to be confused with Arthur Pendragon, a.k.a the legendary King Arthur)! Arthur has collected five of the seven Keys to the Kingdom. These Keys are part of a Will left behind by the Architect of the House. And the Architect requested that they be given to a mortal heir. But the greedy and envious Superior Saturday has other plans for the Sixth Key.


The Powers Against Him

Getting his hands on the Sixth Key is challenging, especially with Superior Saturday and her thousands of powerful sorcerers working against him. Not to mention that he is quickly transforming from mortal to immortal. Or the fact that an unstoppable Nothing is spreading throughout the House, making everything in its path disappear.


Bomb Threat

Meanwhile on Earth, Arthur learns that a nuclear bomb will be dropped on his city. He freezes time so he can search for the Sixth Key and devise a plan to stop the bomb. But what if time unfreezes before he returns?


The Bottom Line

The Keys to the Kingdom: Superior Saturday is equal parts sci-fi, fantasy, exciting and confusing. The book jumps right into the action, giving new readers very little background about the fascinating characters and setting. Luckily, the book builds toward an extremely climactic finish. If you plan on reading this book, we suggest you start the series from book 1, Mister Monday.

    To be brutally honest, this is a question I get asked about all the time... Now being a person who has been into technology for 13 years now - I can see why so many people have gone over to the world of technology now (I mean, we even have Curved 4K TVs now - which look absolutely awesome btw, but that's for me to talk about at another time).  Now it's important to remember that books are still extremely important. Although you can find almost everything on the Internet now - it's still sometimes useful to look in a book (even if that's not very often). So I do still think they have there place, and for people who actually like the authenticity of a physical book and not some thing that is on iCloud or whatever your chosen Online Storage Solution is. With technology moving the way it is these days, it's so much easier to use something like an iPhone, an iPad, or a Laptop (such as a MacBook Pro) to find the information you need. If you was to create a paper book of everything that was available on the Internet - let's put it this way, you'd need a rather large school bag... And rather large muscles!  :devil However, with something like a MacBook Pro (even the 15" Model), it's much easier to carry around, especially as it's much lighter than a lot of books - you can also take notes on it and edit photos and video, and listen to music, and watch films, and use KidzWorld ;) So personally, I'd take my MacBook and iPod Touch 5G (soon to be replaced with a Moto G) around with me all the time, I've had my time of using books. But as I said, other people may have different opinions;3

    It's difficult to say because I love TFiOS, I think its a great book and film, but the Divergent series and film also looks good but I've never read/seen them, so I can't really make a refined judgement.
