Garth Nix's books have sold more than 4.5 million copies and appeared on best seller lists around the world. This is the eagerly awaited sixth book in Garth Nix's blockbuster fantasy-adventure series, The Keys to the Kingdom
. Arthur Penhaligon has defeated five of the seven Trustees, but his week is getting worse and worse.
Arthur Penhaligon has wrested 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 ever 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. Everything is all just part of a greater plan she has been hatching for ten thousand years.
Arthur can't even find a way into the Upper House, and even if he does, discovering the Sixth Part of the Will and gaining the Sixth Key might not be enough to counter Saturday's sorcerous hordes or stop her bid for ultimate power. Power that means the total destruction of the House and the entire universe beyond.
