Superior Saturday – Garth Nix


Keys To The Kingdom #6

A light read aimed at Young Adults. It’s certanly an entertaining light read, however that is all it is. There is no real suspense during the book and the plot moves in such a way that nothing ever seems to be long enough. There is, put simply, just not enough detail. Even the ‘cliffhanger’ ending, leaves much to be desired. The outcome is almost certainly predictable as is the rest of the plot.

I’m sorry to say that having had such high hopes for this series, it pales into insignificance against other, earlier, works of Nix’s – so much so that I begin to wonder whether his writing skill is deteriorating.

3/5 – Distinctly average.
