I like the visuals around Saturday's realm. It's one of the better ones when it comes to motivation and the idea of a gigantic clockwork tower stretching upwards... cool.

On the other hand, we saw even less of Saturday than we did of Friday, which is saying something. I think she and Arthur were in the same scene for maybe a half dozen paragraphs? It's a bit weird. I assume we'll see more of her in the next book, but it's something of a departure.

Back on Earth, things continue to escalate. Did Nix really drop a nuke on the city? Looks like. It's an interesting move. I'm betting time travel shenanigans will be involved in the finale.

Speaking of the finale, the Will still hasn't caused nearly as much trouble as I expected. It keeps building up and then... nothing. At least nothing big. Another for Sunday I guess. ( )

The penultimate book in the series finds Arthur battling Superior Saturday for her key. She's always had her eye on Lord Sunday's demesne. Action-packed. Arthur has let go of his avoidance of using magic, which is good because he needs it. However, due to this, he's struggling with staying 'himself'. The desire for power and a superiority complex is growing in him as he tries to fight it. His "I just want to go home" mantra is over, which is great because that was annoying. ( )

We have almost reached the end of Arthur's quest for the Will of the Architect and the seven Keys to the Kingdom. Arthur battles the sorceress Superior Saturday, but I'm not sure if he's going to get the key from her, as the last pages of the book leave him falling down from the Incomparable Gardens after just having uttered his claim for the key. Collecting the Will was pretty easy, once he figured out that it was split into the the constantly falling rain, so I guess his lack of success with the key balances this out. He had better get the key asap though, because he was already in Sunday's demense and the House is perilously close to being swallowed up by Nothing. ( )
