Keys to the Kingdom, book 7
In this thrilling conclusion to Garth Nix's Keys to the Kingdom series, Arthur Penhaligon must complete his quest to save the Kingdom he is heir to...and Arthur's world. (taken from Amazon.com)
This is the final book of the series and took quite a while to come out. Since it is the final book, I do not want to give anything away...but I will say simply that I was very pleased. There was a great deal of action. Though this is such a fantastically conceptual series, the things that happen to Arthur and his choices are actually very realistic and authentic feeling. Without giving anything away, I can say that what I loved best about the book is that Arthur is able to become the supernatural being that he has to be in order to get things done, yet never loses his inner humanity and moral compass. A well done end to the series.
