as you might expect, some confusion.Small but slightly twitch point the last part of the Will, and Lord Sunday, both fail at telling Arthur important stuff somewhat relative to their differing definitions of important They try to, but they keep getting interrupted and stuff Ka fail The power of plot compels you BUT, I mostly enjoyed the book I felt it was a little slow to get started, and some of the writing a tad clunky, but once it grabbed me, it didn t let go Following are the highlights of my reactions to this book These showcase some of the unpredictability that I admired and they are also chock full of spoilers, so if for SOME REASON you re STILL READING THIS REVIEW, and you haven t read the Keys to the Kingdom series yet and think you might do so sometime, stop reading the review now for the love of all that is awesome 1 Wow, they nuked the hospital I, uh, really didn t think they d nuke the hospital Where were Leaf s family when this happened again 2 Arthur s transformation is pretty neat GRAAR ARTHUR SMASH.3 WHOAH WHOAH WHOAH the Will s been murdering the Trustees This is one of those excellent plot twists that jars you when you first read it, but then you go, Of course 4 So THAT S why the elephant s there I like Elephant in this book, but I do think it s a slight faltering that when it appears a couple of books back, there s kind of a, whuh sense that didn t really leave until this one makes use of Elephant 5 I KNOW you did not just kill Suzy Turquoise Blue, you heartless bastard I DREW FANART OF HER 6 So the Architectoh, thenthat makes sense Oh, wait, no it doesn t Seriously, though she had to do all that just to free the Old One Wouldn t it maybe makesense for Nix to have just said that the Architect couldn t destroy herself without destroying all her creation, and leave it at that It s really kind of weird that she had to destroy all of everything to break bonds that, um, she created And all But still WHOAH MOTHER OF ALL PLOT TWISTS Possibly literally 7 SoArthur and the New Architectwhoah This is trippy Also, didn t the New Architect specifically say he wasn t going to split off a part of himself like the previous one had Guess he just changed his mind Even though it s POV hopping, which happens sometimes in this book and annoys me a little, I really like the line where the New Architect tells Arthur he s mortaland is lying Also OH SNAP Arthur s mother is dead That s really sad Delayed reaction after putting down book Hey, most of the other dozens of named characters we ve met at various times are also dead Everyone in the House who wasn t on the Elysium Is dead I mean, none of these characters was very deeply characterized, but still I m not actually sure whether the New Architect just said, Wacky powers, remake everything that s in this book, but with these few changes, and make it snappy or whether he actually spent untold ages reforming things according to the snapshot saved in the Atlas The new Arthur awakes thinking it s been just moments, but the new Arthur is wrong about a few other things, isn t he I am kind of amused by the not really resolution of my, Will Suzy or Leaf become a romantic interest for Arthur question Neither of them does within the book This might just be because they kind of don t have enough time together to manage it, but I still sort of appreciate that Nix doesn t toss in an obligatory hero gets the girl at the end somewhere Though it cracks me up that Arthur will go back to Earth with Leaf where he will presumably live out his life until the day when the New Architect deems the time right to tell him that he can t die while the New Architect, having taken the form of a twenty one year old Arthur, will now be fixing up a brand new House with the assistance of cue wacky powers twenty one year old Suzy It does make me think that Lord Sunday, during the MORE THAN TWELVE HOURS he has Arthur imprisoned, some of which he spends scolding Arthur, could have explained things Heck, even if he d made a just slightlygenerous offer to Arthur re saving the Universe, Arthur might have actually accepted Maybe Lord Sunday could just have said, Look, for now, let s fight off the Piper and the Nothing together, and then I ll be happy to give you the Seventh Key after you and I have a little chat about the motives of the Will and the Architect I don t know, SOMETHING I wonder, too, whether some of the events of this book were actually a result of things unplanned by Mister Nix He may have dug himself into some holes that didn t have neat, tidy ways out Either way, I think it works quite well.I d probably give the book five stars if the writing were a little better Otherwise, good stuff

    Bittersweet ending to a very good series It is Lewis Carroll s Alice, but withconsequence It is Rowling s Harry Potter, but withprotagonist activity It is C.S Lewis Chronicles of Narnia, but not Christian.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.

    Arthur Penhalligan was just an ordinary kid albeit one with extraordinarily bad asthma when he was randomly chosen to recieve the first part of the Architect s Will Although no one expected him to be able to hang on to it in fact, the plan was for him to expire just moments after being handed it , he not only lived, he managed to free several other parts of the Will as well As each part is freed from its prison, the Will grows stronger and the various trustees of the Will growdesper Arthur Penhalligan was just an ordinary kid albeit one with extraordinarily bad asthma when he was randomly chosen to recieve the first part of the Architect s Will Although no one expected him to be able to hang on to it in fact, the plan was for him to expire just moments after being handed it , he not only lived, he managed to free several other parts of the Will as well As each part is freed from its prison, the Will grows stronger and the various trustees of the Will growdesperate to stop Arthur This is the final showdown.And what a showdown it is Armies on the march, nuclear bombs, death trap clocks and Arthur has to useandof the Will s powers to survive it all, losing a little piece of his humanity every time he does It s enthralling and enraging and fantastic.The worlds created for this series are absolutely fascinating, from Superior Saturday s transparent and perpetually raining tower where clerks work frantically underneath umbrellas, to Drowned Wednesday s world of pirates and Raised Rats, to Tuesday s perpetual war amidst lands that move every sunrise Arthur s world is just as interesting, because it s like an alternate universe version of our own, but with frequent pandemics and slightly futuristic tech The characters are another bright spot, from Arthur s solid moral center even when it costs him and his allies to Suzy Turquoise Blue s stubborn ability to thrive in any situation They all felt like real people from early on, and by the end of this seven book series I felt like I knew them as well as I know anyone In fact, I miss them I hope Nix choses to write some short stories or something with them, because I d snatch them up

    Arthur, in this last book, view spoiler is clearly less human Physically, he isn t human at all It seems as though he is also being influenced by the House and his transformation until he is acting less human, less compassionate this was already true in Superior Saturday But in Lord Sunday, we learn that the pernicious influence of the keys makes Arthur stronger, but also makes him angry hide spoiler I don t like the ending While it seems inevitable especially given the direction of Arthur, in this last book, view spoiler is clearly less human Physically, he isn t human at all It seems as though he is also being influenced by the House and his transformation until he is acting less human, less compassionate this was already true in Superior Saturday But in Lord Sunday, we learn that the pernicious influence of the keys makes Arthur stronger, but also makes him angry hide spoiler I don t like the ending While it seems inevitable especially given the direction of the last few books , it is also deeply sad, and I found it disappointing I have no patience for view spoiler the Architect, who destroys the universe and everyone in it because she is bored The ending seemed so unsatisfying, because it is so deeply sad unlike the end of the Abhorsen trilogy, which is bittersweet but also clearly triumphant In the Keys to the Kingdom, the House is destroyed and nearly everyone in it with only a few exceptions , Arthur s mother is dead, much of the city and all the poor people in Lady Friday s hospital has been destroyed by a nuke, and Arthur can never be human again That is a high price for the Architect s suicide hide spoiler A few notes on the series.I don t like the term Nothing I am bothered by it because view spoiler nothing doesn t have properties, and yet Nix gives it properties, which is rather contradictory I think it should be named something else, because it can spontaneously generate things Nithlings , it can dissolve matter like fast acting acid , and it can be used to create things by using the keys, or by particularly powerful people using their minds hide spoiler But while this annoyed me throughout the entire series, it is really a minor point.One of the interesting aspects of the Keys to the Kingdom series is that each of the seven trustees is afflicted with a deadly sin Monday is afflicted with view spoiler sloth, Tuesday with greed, Wednesday with gluttony, Thursday with wrath, Friday with lust, Saturday with envy, and Sunday with pride hide spoiler It would be easy for there to be a sense of sameness to all these, but instead, each feels different Monday seems different, and differently expressed, than either Tuesday or Wednesday, or any of the other trustees

    What a great ending to this series I was quite surprised at how this ended, but I m really happy about it It wasn t a perfect happily ever after, but it was good and felt realistic I loved how Arthur s friends helped him with this War and retrieving the keys of the kingdom Arthur s humanity and his friendships were probably my favorite part of this series It s weird, it doesn t feel like the series is over Also, we finally get the whole story about the Architect, which I have been waiting f What a great ending to this series I was quite surprised at how this ended, but I m really happy about it It wasn t a perfect happily ever after, but it was good and felt realistic I loved how Arthur s friends helped him with this War and retrieving the keys of the kingdom Arthur s humanity and his friendships were probably my favorite part of this series It s weird, it doesn t feel like the series is over Also, we finally get the whole story about the Architect, which I have been waiting for the entire time Now everything makes sense and I can go on with my life lol I kind of wish there was an extended epilogue since I d love to see view spoiler exactly how Art, Suzy and the other denizens remade the House and everything else hide spoiler Overall, this was such a great series and it was really easy to read

    I think I m going to start a book review series called the problem with finales I have had the bitter sweet pleasure this week of reading two final books from two of my favorite series One of them was this book, Lord Sunday by Garth Nix The 7th and final book in the Keys to the Kingdom series Often, as in the case of this book, the last book in a series is delayed and as anticipation grows so does expectations Is it possible for any concluding book in a series to live up to expectation I think I m going to start a book review series called the problem with finales I have had the bitter sweet pleasure this week of reading two final books from two of my favorite series One of them was this book, Lord Sunday by Garth Nix The 7th and final book in the Keys to the Kingdom series Often, as in the case of this book, the last book in a series is delayed and as anticipation grows so does expectations Is it possible for any concluding book in a series to live up to expectations They have a lot riding on them the pressure to answers any and all questions, to close the story, and live up to the quality of the previous books in the series It kind of breaks my heart to give this book only 4 stars I ve been waiting so long and I truly wanted to love this book That is not to say I didn t like it or that is wasn t a great book but, with in the context of Keys to the Kingdom and the amazing writing of Garth Nix I thought this book fell a little short There was something off about the whole story, the characters seemed stiff and the ending seemed rushed and all at once While in all of the other books in the series we spend pages learning about the realm and the nature of each day s domain, we spend almost no time learning about or experiencing the Incomparable Gardens I don t want to discredit the book, or the series, because I know the challenge it must be to complete a series And it Mr Nix s credit the ending was not what I expected at all All I could have wished for wastime in the Gardens and perhapsfor shadowing in the previous books about the events character changes that were coming in the book Book Rating 8 10 Oddly I only see this only being a problem with books that go beyond a trilogy, that is 4 orbooks For Example Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Breaking Dawn, etc
