Review

Praise for "DEADWEATHER AND SUNRISE" (Book One in the Chronicles of Egg series):
Amazon Best Books of the Year 2012
Chicago Public Library Best of the Best 2012

STARRED REVIEW FROM"BCCB"
. . . a high-seas adventure in the grandest tradition, featuring epic maritime battles, elusive hidden treasures, tender romance, and of course, pirates lots and lots of pirates. The fast-paced swashbuckling will surely satisfy fans of adventure, but it's really Egg's narration that makes this pirate story rise above its counterparts. Wittily observant and self-deprecating, Egg relays the series of absurd events that precede his escape from Deadweather with a fair amount of humor, while his decision to avenge the deaths of his family despite their mistreatment of him lends the tale a certain nobility.

FROM"THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE"
What a wonderful hybrid plot: islands, buried treasure, a lad avenging violence against his family, sea voyages, tourist cruises, real pirates, fake pirates for the tourist trade, and leftover pirates, too maimed for sea work. . . . Egg's flat, fatalistic, practical and hilarious narrative tone keeps this wild profusion of plot elements (and island hopping) in balance in this, Book 1, of "The Chronicles of Egg," making a reader look forward to more.

FROM"KIRKUS REVIEWS"
Self-deprecating and funny, Egg s first-person account is compelling, and the dialogue and vivid setting, as well as the full cast of quirky characters, make it easy to get lost in this adventure.

FROM"PUBLISHERS WEEKLY"
In this rousing debut novel . . . Egg s struggle to stay alive takes him from one death-defying scenario to the next with breakneck speed the overall effect is more comedic than terrifying, as Rodkey combines humor and adventure.

FROM"BOOKLIST"
[O]ur hero s first-person sassiness, smarts, and romantic frustration . . . are absolutely entertaining. Along with some good and gory descriptions (after all, pirates really aren t that nice), this introduction to the Chronicles of Egg series is pure fun.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Praise for "NEW LANDS" (Book Two in the Chronicles of Egg series):

FROM "KIRKUS REVIEWS"
Egg s narration, fresh and funny as ever, keeps readers engaged with the increasingly complicated plot. Occasionally gruesome, often funny and full of suspense, this one is sure to win Egg some new fans.

FROM "BCCB"
The plot follows a classic adventure arc but remains nonetheless surprising: the characters never quite behave in expected ways, making unpredictable choices . . . Even though the world is fictional, the portrayal of the Native tribes and their culture and interactions with Egg and Pembroke may make for some interesting comparisons to Robinson Crusoe and Treasure Island.
Praise for" BLUE SEA BURNING" (Book Three in the Chronicles of Egg series)
STARRED REVIEW FROM "VOYA" "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." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
This final installment of “The Chronicles of Egg”, by Geoff Rodkey, brings to a climax a fantasy story of love, loss, war, humor, and a whole lot more. This was my absolute favorite book in the entire series. It brought about a strong touch of humanity and humor to a tale filled with “good guys”, “bad guys”, and those “in between”. While aimed toward younger readers—middle grades and early teens—I believe fantasy readers of all ages could enjoy it.

Rodkey excels in getting inside the main character, giving him believable thoughts and realistic behaviors. All of his characters are well developed, drawing the reader in to care about most all of them, causing us to cheer when things finally start turning out all right.

The adventurous book (and series) was filled with plenty of twists and turns, and the ending was well conceived. I could imagine even further adventures for Egbert down the road, and if they were ever to come about, I think I should find myself standing in line, waiting to read all about them.

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.

HASH(0x89d71f30) out of 5 stars Not one dull moment! 13 April 2014
By Tonette Joyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Geoff Rodkey has made good on his promise of an action-filled finale for his "Chronicles of Egg" trilogy.
"Blue Sea Burning" hasn't one dull moment. The reader is treated to a continual ride of action and plot twists. There are a few new characters, but there are many more facets exposed in old friends,(and enemies), to make it more interesting as one is swept along with the sea and the story. Younger reader who may readily identify with Egg, Millicent, Kira, or even Guts, (God forbid, Adonis or Venus), will find many more opportunities to let their imaginations run with those characters Without being overly complicated for the “Tween” target readership, Blue Sea Burning is still engaging enough to keep more mature readers hooked until the end..
I love this series. My 11 year old grandson has been devouring the books since the first one was released, and we have given copies as gifts to friends.
I will miss Egg and his companions.
I only hope that Mr. Rodkey will revisit Egg and the other characters sometime in the future. Perhaps, into their future as adults, as my grandson suggested to me.

HASH(0x89d727b0) out of 5 stars Books you can't put down.They raise the bar awfully high for other authors ! 17 Aug. 2014
By BookshireCrone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am so glad that someone finally broke out of the latest dystopian mode & put the fun back into reading. You've got
1 hero worth the title. 1 side kick who kicks butt, 2 strong willed, courageous young ladies, and a bilge full of pirates.
The author has done such a great job of bringing the characters to life.
These are the books you want your kids to read,because you can't wait to share them.
Adults, revisit your childhood, kids dive into & join the pirates.
Please Mr Rodkey : can we have some more ???!!!

5 out of 5 gnomes

I adore this series. It’s one of those series where I really would love to know the whole story and what exactly the future holds for these characters. This trilogy was so well done and I would recommend it to anybody who loves adventure stories with a strong cast and of course anyone who’s a fan of pirates.

Holy carp there was just so much awesomeness/plenty of surprises in this final book. Some of this craziness includes a little bit more about a certain Captain and some pretty interesting information about Egg’s mother. Also last but certainly not least I have to say that now that, that was one superb way to take out a villain.

I love how much Egg has changed over the course of the series and yet is recognizable is being still a kid too. His decisions may be questionable at times but when he does something great that makes it even better.

There is plenty of family drama, intense issues, and definite danger. Also the inclusion of a polite Adonis and a misbehaving monkey are pretty darn hilarious.

Guts with his guitar playing and swearing is one of my favorite characters. What the reader does know about him is already intriguing. Then there’s the ending where you find out there might be even more to discover.

Burns Healy really makes this book shine. He is a surprising role model but yet in the world Egg lives in Healy isn’t always the baddest guy. I think I would love to read a whole book that was just his origin story.

I like where the story ended but would definitely be interested in a book about how the character’s futures turned out. Saying that though I am glad that there wasn’t a corny epilogue or anything. I personally am just hoping to learn more about what happened to these characters and what other adventures they had.
