Drowned Ammet is the story of Mitt, a boy who joins a band of Freedom Fighters in a bid to try and crush the tyrranical ruler of Holand, and at the same time, to get revenge on the people who killed his father.
I read this soon after reading the first book in the quartet, Cart and Cwidder. I finished this the next day. It's very good, and captures your interest right from the start. There are no characters I disliked; they were all very believable. Based off of the two books, I anticipate the third one being just as good. I recommend reading this book.
