"On the third day, there were pirates." How could anyone not like a book so succinctly summed up on it's fabulous dust-jacket? Arthur is finally taking command of his own fate and calling the shots, which makes things really pick up and run in this third book of the series. I can't wait to dig into Thursday's story next!

Arthur continues his adventures as heir to a strange kingdom, fighting pirates and trying to elude to bottomless pit of Wednesday¿s hunger.While quite a brilliant world builder, Nix does not turn his formidable imagination to plot, so once again this is much more straight-forward than one might expect from an adventure story. The hurdles Arthur must overcome never seem overwhelming, which eases the dramatic tension. Seems like most things are solved with ¿Arthur tried something. It worked.¿ Still, a fascinating space in which to hold a story.

This was a really good book! I liked it a lot, and it was so neat how Nix stirs things around, especially with Drowned Wednesday after his readers get used to the Morrow Days...we get something totally new. Of course his brilliant imagination is exhibited, and more than once you will find yourself saying "How in the world did he think of that???" Best of all, its original, no copy-catting. Plagairism gets annoying in books, but especially in fantasy.

This is a very good series, but at time can be a little confusing.

Well I think this will prove to be the turning point in this series - where the overall plot begins to pull together, as opposed to being a stand-alone book like the first two felt.The setting itself is one much written about before - pirates and ships on the high seas. Possibly in this respect it makes it less original than the previous two stories. However, Garth Nix manages to tread fresh ground even here, by combining it with the concepts of his own invented universe. It is good to see the characters Suzy and especially Leaf return, and start to play a bigger role. I still feel that Arthur's character could have more depth, as these books are more focussed on plot than character development. Overall a fun read.

I enjoyed this a little more than Grim Tuesday. The setting was a lot of fun, and I loved the Raised Rats. I'm glad that Nix is shaking things up just a little bit, with Wednesday being of a different nature than Tuesday.
