Completed: #22 – Read Garth Nix’s The Keys to the Kingdom Series

12 Jul

Hello everyone! I have completed #22 on my ’22 Things before 22′ list and that is to completely read The Keys to the Kingdom series. Hooray celebrate!


So here are my thoughts on the series:

This is a great series for children to read and to be turned into an action movie. I would love to see this series as a movie because of so much detail that Garth Nix has placed in the story to help with the imagination of the place. Each book had a lot of action and the struggles of Arthur were great to read but I feel something a little off after reading the entireĀ series or it’s just me trying to figure out the story.

*Spoiler alert* It is said that each of the Trustee was afflicted by some Sin and I have deduced it down to this:

Mister Monday – Sloth

Grim Tuesday – Greed

Drowned Wednesday – Gluttony

Sir Thursday – Pride?

Lady Friday – ?

Superior Saturday – ?

Lord Sunday – ?

I really couldn’t figure out what the last four Trustees were afflicted with as it wasn’t as apparent as the first three.

Another thing that I wanted to know was what the heck was Pravuil doing in the human world and how the heck did he get into a general’s position? As well as what happened to him after he returned to the House. And the ending was really vague but good ending I suppose but it didn’t nicely wrap up the story but got me to really speculate what could happen in the future and all that.

Overall, this is a great series and my only regret is not reading each book on it’s respective day (you know Mister Monday on Monday, Grim Tuesday on Tuesday etc.).

One down, 19 more to go!
