From hospital room to high seas, Arthur finds himself on an adventure that will pit him against pirates, storms, explosions of Nothing-laced gunpowder, and a vast beast that eats everything it encounters. Through it all, he is drawn deeper into the central mystery of the House. Arthur must find the third part of the Will and claim the Third Key, not just for himself, but for the millions (if not trillions) who will suffer if he doesn't.
The first step? Surviving life aboard a ship on the Border Sea.

Yes it was time well-spent. The entire series is aimed more toward children however I enjoyed it and had a lot of fun. The narrator does an excellent job with his different voices.
It has a follow up book and the entire series is a lot of fun.
Another well told story. Garth Nix pulls you into Wednesday as Arthur is healing from his adventures on Tuesday. There is no safe haven from the Morrow Days, not even a hospital room. Ride along as our reluctant hero faces Pirates, a White Whale more than 100 miles long, and worse than that, Nothing. Will the Nothing stop Arthur...or will Arthur let nothing stop him?
