Arthur Penhaligon and his friends Leaf and Suzy are caught in the chaos, separated by events but drawn together in their fight to survive. They must use every power at their disposal magical or practical to defeat the enemies attacking them from all sides.
For Arthur, the biggest challenge comes from Lord Sunday, the most elusive of the Trustees of the Will. Lord Sundays magic is unlike any Arthur has encountered before and his secrets have the potential to destroy not only Arthur but also the people he holds most dear.

From Tuesday to Saturday, he emerged as the Rightful Heir to the Architect who created everything within the House.

Interesting...

Hmm...I don't know what to say. As for the ending of a pretty cool series goes, this one felt really rushed. It was as if Garth got tired of writing in this universe and just wanted it to be over and done with as soon as possible.
All in all, it was an ok ending and an ok book. I think I just expected more. I mean, when the poop hits the fan, you don't expect things to be quickly cleaned up. You want some wallowing in the muck as things, some casting blame on others, bitter fights, drama, all before things are figured out and cleaned up. Instead, I felt as if he swept it all up under a rug and said "There, I finished it. All is well." as he tries to smile convincingly and hopes nobody notices the smell.

Overall, I'm left underwhelmed, yet satisfied (just barely).

That is all :)

Somewhat rushed? Still good, worth listening to.

Garth Nix is a favorite writer of mine, and I started with his series "The Seventh Tower" and "Abhorson" (with respective themes light and death, onto this series' theme of time) As the finale to the Keys to the Kingdom series, I hoped this book would tie up all the loose ends, and it did, more or less, while still keeping a good flow and plot. I think this last book did a great job tying up a lot of plot points, and was very interesting while doing it. Moreover, the book does not immediately end after the climax, which I like, since I like to know what happens after the "big finish." I would've liked to have seen a little more of that, but I can't fault the author for not wanting to. This book is worth the read or listen.
