superiorI recently devoured the book Superior Saturday by Garth Nix. The latest in the Keys to the Kingdom series is, tragically, a cliff-hanger. I’m desperately hopeful that there won’t be a  long wait for the last book in the series, Lord Sunday.


The books in the Keys to the Kingdom series so far are:

  1. Mister Monday
  2. Grim Tuesday
  3. Drowned Wednesday
  4. Sir Thursday
  5. Lady Friday
  6. Superior Saturday
  7. Lord Sunday (to be published 2009)
