Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourites in the series I really liked this series. This book was slow at first but about halfway through it became so interesting that I couldn't put it down. This was one of my favourites in the series considering the story line (which I won't spoil).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This series just keeps on getting better! If you haven't started this series you definitely should. Although it is aimed at young readers, Nix knows how to write a great and innovative story. I throughly enjoyed this book just as I have loved every book that I have read from this author. In particular, I really liked the nautical theme behind this tale (each book has a different setting). I love how Nix gets started right away on the plot and introduces background along the way. I didn't have to wade through 200 pages of a quidditch tournament to get to the story. This is a really great series.

Arthur Penhaligon, the Rightful Heir to the Kingdom, returns to the House, this time with his friend, Leaf. As soon as they arrive in the House, Leaf is taken by a ship with glowing sails. This leaves Arthur stranded on a hospital bed, with a broken leg, sinking in the middle of an ocean. Unbeknown to him, he will face many challenges, but will find allies along the way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Read for Young and Old After reading Nix's Abhorsen trilogy I sought out his other work. I purchased both Mr. Monday and Grim Tuesday a year ago while Drowned Wednesday was still only hardcover and waited impatiently for the paperback to come out. In this book, Arthur is sent back into the House into the Border Sea where Drowned Wednesday is ruler. For some reason, all of the denizens of the Sea are terrified of her and discourage Arthur from meeting with her as he was invited to do. After joining a pirate ship, Arthur learns what life as a pirate is like while fleeing other pirate ships and chasing after his friend Leaf who was sucked into the House with him but separated at sea. Will Arthur be able to obtain the 3rd part of the Will, and will he be able to find Leaf? Why is everyone afraid to go near Drowned Wednesday? You will have to read this book to find out.
