Saturday, you envious bastard.

I really liked the sorcery system with the colorful umbrellas and everything. And it's kind of amusing that whenever a sorcerer got a promotion their entire desk space moved up however many floors and all the sad saps who didn't make it threw stuff at them because they were so jealous.

The way this part of the Will was hidden was kind of genius. I think it's also my favorite part out of all seven. He's more understanding and likable overall. Plus, he doesn't mind turning himself into whatever fits the situation which makes him a heck of a lot more humble than the other pieces (especially when put together).

Arthur has now accepted his fate to become a Denizen, the rightful heir through and through. However, it starts to eat away at him a little at a time. He finds himself prone to anger and self-righteousness and often sees the similarities between him and Dame Primus. He does his dead best to fight it, though, and that's what makes him a truly amazing character.

Outstanding, Unique, Brilliant, And Just A Really Good Book

Superior Saturday by Garth Nix
Publication Date: July 2008
5 out of 5 stars
PG - Some Gruesome Violence

The House is being destroyed by Nothing and Earths existence is being threatened. And the only person who can save the House and Earth is the rightful heir of the architect, a boy named Arthur Penhaligan.

The Lower House has already been destroyed by the Nothing and without Arthur and his 5 keys he has claimed from the unruly Trustees of the Will, the rest of the House will be destroyed. Arthur, with his best friend Suzy Turquoise Blue, set out in search of the sixth part of the Will. But to get into the Upper House, where Part Six of the Will is hidden, they have to outwit thousands of Superior Saturdays sorcerers, survive working with the grease monkeys and the creatures lurking in the dark, figure out who they can and cant trust, and hope that Superior Saturday, the oldest and most powerful denizen, doesnt detect their presence. If they are revealed, their outcome and the worlds outcome looks dim. With outstanding odds against them, Arthur begins to fear more and more about what he is becoming, then the task at hand. The outcome of Arthurs victory or defeat will affect the fate of the House, Earth, and all their inhabitants. But first, he has to get in&

Superior Saturday was another outstanding, unique, brilliant book in the Keys to the Kingdom Series. This book was an amazingly fast read, just like every book in the series. The plot was not rushed or clumsy, but steadily sped up with each event and was intriguing and held your attention the whole time.

Arthurs inner battle was realistic and completely believable. His fight to stay human although his outer appearances began to change at an alarming rate, added to my respect for him. He realizes what is right and wrong and doesnt sway from his decisions even though sometimes it may appear as not going as smoothly or successfully as he had hoped. Arthur holds tightly to the only thing that now keeps him human, his ability to feel compassion, patience, forgiveness, and understanding how whatever he does effects everyone else. Absolutely great character. Arthur is the biggest reason for a person to read this series.

The creatures, landscape, and dialogue are all amazingly creative. This is one of the most original, unique, interesting series created in these modern times.

I highly suggest The Keys to the Kingdom series to everyone, everywhere.
