Chronicles of Egg: Blue Sea Burning by Geoff Rodkey is the third and final installment to this hilarious and exquisitely written swashbuckling adventure series. 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' 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. Praise for Geoff Rodkey: "This is a rip-roaring debut. It is Lemony Snicket meets Pirates of the Caribbean, with a sprinkling of Tom Sawyer for good measure". (Rick Riordan, author of the bestselling Percy Jackson series). Geoff Rodkey is a successful screenwriter, whose hits include RV (starring Robin Williams) and Daddy Daycare (starring Eddie Murphy). As well as contributing to MTV's seminal animated series Beavis and Butt-head, Geoff received an Emmy nomination for his work on Bill Maher's Politically Incorrect. Deadweather and Sunrise, the first book in The Chronicles of Egg series has been shortlisted for the prestigious Waterstones Children's Book Prize.
