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.

    Santa Claus is not real. He was a God believed by the Vikings, but he doesn't exist. I don't want to spoil your childhood, but he is not real for your information. it is really fun pretending he is, but it's kind of creepy when you think about it.
