If he fulfils this function, the Architect of the World's original intention will be enacted. To save the Lower House, he must kill Mister Monday and steal the other half of the key, of which is the Hour Hand, from him.
He is accompanied during the most of his journey by a cockney girl-child named Suzy Turquoise Blue , who was brought to the House by the Piper one of the immortal Denizens of the House along with many other children. There, too, he learns something of the House's history: The Architect and the Old One came from nothing to create the universe.

Through it all, Arthur never loses sigh Arthur has such terrible asthma that his main ambition in life is just getting a next breath, so when a magical key is pressed into his hand and he becomes imbued with extraordinary powers, he's more than a bit nonplussed.
If I'm right, the conflict is between Arthur and the Trustees who betrayed the Architect's trust, and so instead of being about Good and Evil it's about simple corruption and forgiveness. Thankfully, Arthur is up to the challenge, but as he finds out, his fight seems to be only one-seventh over.
The storyline was complex and confusing to me pretty much all of the way through. Fantasy Juvenile Fiction. My primary reservation about the Keys to the Kingdom series is its target age group - and yes, I know that's silly, because how could the man who wrote Sabriel ever create something puerile and immature?
