Like some demented hovercraft, it whooshed down the slope, jumped the number twelve on the clock, and smashed into Arthur, knocking him to the ground. Arthur grabbed it as it hit, but it flopped around in his grasp until it disgorged its contents – a mirror and a quill pen that leaped into his hands. He overtopped Lord Sunday now, he saw, which meant he was around ten feet tall. He also had wings, though he had no memory of putting them on, or indeed of ever procuring wings that shed such brilliant light.

Lord Sunday's magic is unlike anything Arthur has encountered before-and his secrets have the potential to destroy not only Arthur, but also all the people he holds dear.

From fantasy master Garth Nix comes a new world of angels, heroes, gunpowder and high magic

From fantasy master Garth Nix comes a new world of angels, heroes, gunpowder and high magic. The icon-maker and angel-summoner Liliath, long believed dead, has woken from her century-long sleep to pick up the threads of a plan that has already destroyed one kingdom and may yet destroy another.

Garth Nix LORD SUNDAY. GARTH NIX was born on a Saturday in Melbourne, Australia, and got married on a Saturday, to his publisher wife, Anna. So Saturday is a good day. Garth used. Garth used to write every Sunday afternoon because he had a number of day jobs over the years that nearly always started on a Monday, usually far too early.

In this seventh and last book of THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM, the mysteries of the House, the Architect, the Trustees, the Keys and the Will are revealed, and the fate of Arthur, our Earth, and the entire Universe is finally decided. Arthur has wrested the Sixth Key from Superior Saturday, but has fallen from the Incomparable Gardens; fallen not to the Upper House but to somewhere completely unexpected. Alone in enemy territory, as his mind and body are further transformed by the power of the Keys, Arthur must struggle with himself as much as with his many enemies. Meanwhile, Arthur's friend Suzy Blue plots an escape from her prison in Saturday's tower, as battle rages above and below. Saturday's elite force is pressing on into the Incomparable Gardens, while her massed sorcerers fight a desperate rear-guard action against the Piper and his Newnith army. On earth, Leaf has to cope with the aftermath of a nuclear strike. Responsible for all the Sleepers in Friday's private hospital, she needs all the help she can get, particularly as Leaf herself has become a target for intruders from the House. And the tide of Nothing continues to rise, destroying everything in its path ...

My daughter loved this series, we listened to 1-5 on CDs from the library. Then I found 6 on Overdrive through my library but there was no audio version available for 7. I wasn't happy to have to buy the CDs but used prices were pretty good. And we got to finish out the series.

My daughter is 7 years old and really liked the Harry Potter-ish aspects of the book and also the intricacies of the characters and plots. Some of it was a little old for her but she got most of it.

I really enjoyed this series overall, but unfortunately this was my least favorite book of the lot. I read it because I've read all the other books in the series, but I was rather tempted to put this one down halfway through. While each of the previous books introduced new and interesting characteristics about the house, gave us new magical areas to explore, and new denizens to get to know, the last book seems to mostly rehash things the reader has already learned about the house.

I was very happy with the ending and how all the loose ends were resolved. However, I felt the "twist" was a little too heavily foreshadowed in the Superior Saturday which made it unsurprising. In a way, this book felt like a forced march to a somewhat unsurprising end.

If you haven't read the rest of the series, I hope this doesn't put you off. While the ending might have fell a little short for me personally, the series itself is very imaginative and well written and I would still highly recommend The Keys to the Kingdome as a whole.

Because this is literally the only way any girl is ever getting any keys to any kingdom. Bwahahahaha. Totally cracks me up. Girls in the US can’t even get a key to their own apartment!

For such an interesting imaginative story, the ending was rather lackluster. I've seen it done a thousand times, and often much better. Have to admitted, it felt like Nix lost interest in his own story.

Not nearly as good as his abhorsen trilogy because the books are really a bit too short for good character development. I did like the hero.and waded thro the series for his sake, but each of his sidekicks were not truly fleshed out in later books. The defeat of the seven deadly sins also became a bit monotonous, basically following the same checklist, and only a few kingdoms were really fleshed out as different worlds.

The series as a whole didn't really hold up to the premise established in Mister Monday - which was great - wacky and sinister in all the right places. The end of the Keys to the Kingdom series sort of felt like re-reading the Magician's Land - especially the ending - except not as good, and aimed at sixth graders...

Awesome series!
Read this series as a kid back in high school. Loved them then love them still now as an adult.
