Lady Friday by Garth Nix

Lady Friday (The Keys to the Kingdom, #5) Lady Friday by Garth Nix

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So this is probably my least favorite of the series. The concept of "experiencing" somehow isn't mentioned in any of the previous books, but it seems to be really appealing to the denizens, similar to the black-market trading for human ailments, which is used and referred to throughout the series. Also, it doesn't make sense to me how denizens really get that much from it. They seem to have human-like responses to things, although a much more bland version (jealousy, hate, a pity, etc.) Plus, most things that are considered "mortal" are looked down upon. Why would they want to experience them? Why is experiencing all that great?

Maybe that gets resolved in the last book. For now it is a 3.
