Overview

“This is a rip-roaring debut… I highly recommend you grab a copy… The best way I can describe it is Lemony Snicket meets Pirates of the Caribbean, with a sprinkling of Tom Sawyer for good measure.”—RICK RIORDAN, New York Times bestselling author of the Percy Jackson series on Deadweather and Sunrise.



After narrowly escaping the New Lands, Egg is determined to take down ruthless slave trader Roger Pembroke. But war is brewing among the Blue Sea's pirate gangs—and Egg, Guts, and Kira are running out of time to find the Fire King’s treasure and free the Okalu slaves from the silver mine on Sunrise. Can they save Kira’s people before Sunrise is plundered by Ripper Jones’s pirates? Will Burn Healy save the day, or has the legendary captain finally met his match? And will Egg ever win back Millicent from the annoyingly handsome Cyril?



This explosive conclusion to Egg’s journey delivers the ultimate combination of humor, heart, and white-knuckle adventure.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA, June 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 2) - Barbara Allen
His father is murdered in front of him. He is going to be put to death. He is saved by his uncle at the last second. Now, he is on a leaky pirate ship where everyone wants to kill him because they did not get paid. Two other ships are on the hunt for the ship intent on sinking it to the bottom of the sea. That is just what happens in the first few pages of this book. Egbert, or Egg, has vowed to avenge his father’s death at the hand of the evil Roger Pembroke, and get the girl of his dreams, Millicent—all without dying. His friends want him to seek revenge while searching for the Fist of Ka, a legendary treasure of the natives. But seeking revenge is not that easy when an uncle is technically working with the bad guy. Egg must try to bring down the bad guy without bringing down his uncle, the pirate. High seas adventures start on the first page of the third installment of The Chronicles of Egg. It is a humorous tale packed with action and adventure. Reluctant readers are sure to enjoy this series. While it is meant for younger readers, older teens will still enjoy this pirate-packed tale. Reviewer: Barbara Allen; Ages 11 to 18.

    The Adventure Continues in This Thrilling Series Climax This bo

    The Adventure Continues in This Thrilling Series Climax

    This book picks up where the last one ended.  Egg and his friends are on the ship of the pirate Burn Healy.  Fortunately, Burn has just saved Egg from being killed by the greedy slave owner Roger Pembroke (you know, Egg's true love Millicent's father).  Unfortunately, the ship is sinking and they are being chased by ships determined to finish them off.

    Even if Egg survives that crisis, he still needs to figure out how to defeat Pembroke once and for all.  Considering his connections and wealth, that is going to be much harder than it sounds.  Meanwhile, he meets Cyril, the other contender for Millicent's heart.  How will it all end?

    With lots of page turning action, good characters, and a dash of humor.  Yep, if you've read the first two books in the trilogy, you won't be disappointed in the slightest.  This is a wonderful climax filled with the same things we've come to love.  The plot has some good twists, and more than once I was turning pages as fast as possible to figure out what happens next.  The characters are as strong as ever.  And there's just that dash of humor to keep things lively.

    Of course, if you've missed the first two books, don't start here.  You'll be confused and not follow everything that is happening - not to mention the major spoilers for the previous two books.  This ride is completely worth it, however.

    All three of these books are a journey well worth taking for middle school readers and those who still enjoy the genre.  I'm certainly glad I took this trip.

    A finished story

    I believe the author wanted to end this adventure. I felt the story could go on with the characters he developed. I still enjoyed it nonetheless. I hope i can find another pirate book like this one!!!
