Publisher's Summary

On the sixth day, there was sorcery.

Arthur Penhaligan has wrestled five of the Keys from their immortal guardians, the Trustees of the Will. But gaining the Sixth Key poses a greater challenge than any he has faced before. Superior Saturday is not just one of the Trustees - she is also the oldest Denizen and the most powerful and knowledgeable sorcerer within the House. She has tens of thousands of sorcerers at her command, and she has been preparing her forces all along for the Will's escape and the activities of the Rightful Heir.

As Saturday's schemes become evident, Arthur is beset on all sides. The House is being destroyed, and only the power of the Keys can hold back the tide of destruction. Arthur's home city is under attack. His allies are unreliable. He can't even get into the apparently impregnable Upper House...and even if he does, finding the Sixth Part of the Will and gaining the Sixth Key might not be enough to counter Saturday's bid for ultimate power.

Can Arthur survive?

Shortest of all the Days

A Short but decent adventure, that is not quite as interesting as other books in the series. This book seems mostly setup for the next and final book in the series. The Narrator as usual does a great job.

Superior Saturday

Originally I started listening to the Keys to the Kingdom books because I thought it was what everyone was talking about when they were telling me to read the Kingdoms books. Turns out what they were telling me to read were the much better Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches books. Still, I have stuck with Keys to the Kingdoms now for all six books and I am looking forward to the seventh and final book too. Superior Saturday like the others before it is pretty decent. Arthur has collected five parts of the Will and got the five keys. Now he is out to get the sixth part and the sixth key.

Good Fun

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes it was time well-spent. The entire series is aimed more toward children however I enjoyed it and had a lot of fun. The narrator does an excellent job with his different voices.

A bit too repetarive

Would you try another book from Garth Nix and/or Allan Corduner?

Garth nix has written one of my absolute favourit book serier : Sabriel. However the Series of Keys to the kingdom is not at all as well written, nor is it as capturing. It is an okey passtime, however it is a bit drawn out and repetative, and sometimes it feels a bit too confusing and hard to really get into. I heard the whole seriers as I kept hoping that it would improve, as I could not believe that its the same author as the lovely Sabriel!! Allan Corduner made a good atempt to make it more interessting.

Did Allan Corduner do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

He was one of the better ones, however he is no Lorelei King, (she is the master of Them all). Many of the characters has too similar voices, but overall it was an okey perfomance, I would Like to hear him in another book and see how much of my

Did Superior Saturday inspire you to do anything?

Hear another book and fast!!! Inorder to forget this depressing experiance

Any additional comments?

If you are debating to listen to garth nix for the first time listen to Sabrial series and NOT this one, it aint worth the money! The story and the univers has All the basics of being a GREAT story, but it gets lost in the confusing storyline.

ARGH!

This volume of the Keys to the Kingdom Series is a wonderful addition. However, I find it very frustrating with the "end" of the book being such a cliffhanger and the next volume of the series not being available yet!
