Hello fellow book nerds! 

Welcome to The Chronicels of Egg Series Giveaway!
Today I'll be sharing with everyone about a epic middle-grand fanasy series called "The Chronicles of Egg". A series Rick Riordan (author of The Lightning Thief) describes as "Lemony Snicket meets Pirates of the Caribbean, with a sprinkling of Tom Sawyer for good measure."  

I will be hosting a giveaway for book 1 and 2 in the series curtisy of G.P. Putnam's Sons.
The giveaway consists of one paperback copy of The Chronicles of Egg Book One: Deadweather and Sunrise and one hardcover copy of The Chronicles of Egg Book Two:  New Lands.

1 ONE winner takes all! ;)  

I truly hope everyone will enjoy learning about the series. At the end of this post is of course the giveaway. Good luck!



Deadweather and Sunrise (The Chronicles of Egg #1)
by Geoff Rodkey
Hardcover, 288 pages
Published May 29th 2012 by Putnam Juvenile
Genre: Fantasy
Reading Level: Middle-Grade


A stunning middle-grade debut--full of heart, humor, and nonstop action

It's tough to be thirteen, especially when somebody's trying to kill you.

Not that Egg's life was ever easy, growing up on sweaty, pirate-infested Deadweather Island with no company except an incompetent tutor and a pair of unusually violent siblings who hate his guts.

But when Egg's father hustles their family off on a mysterious errand to fabulously wealthy Sunrise Island, then disappears with the siblings in a freak accident, Egg finds himself a long-term guest at the mansion of the glamorous Pembroke family and their beautiful, sharp-tongued daughter Millicent. Finally, life seems perfect.

Until someone tries to throw him off a cliff.

Suddenly, Egg's running for his life in a bewildering world of cutthroat pirates, villainous businessmen, and strange Native legends. The only people who can help him sort out the mystery of why he's been marked for death are Millicent and a one-handed, possibly deranged cabin boy.

Come along for the ride. You'll be glad you did.

New Lands (The Chronicles of Egg, #2)
New Lands (The Chronicles of Egg #2)
by Geoff Rodkey
Hardcover, 336 pages
Published May 2nd 2013 by Putnam Juvenile
Genre: Fantasy
Reading Level: Middle-Grade



This highly anticipated sequel to Rodkey's much-praised debut is funny, heartfelt, and action-packed. Don't miss it! 

After a narrow escape from Deadweather Island, Egg and his slightly deranged partner Guts head for the remote New Lands. They’re in search of the lost Okalu tribe, who hold the key to the mysterious treasure map that Egg can't decipher. 
But the ruthless Roger Pembroke is hard on Egg's trail, and the New Lands are full of new enemies — against which our heroes only weapons are their brains, their courage...and the two dozen swear words Guts just memorized in the local tongue. 

They're going to need help. 

But who can they trust? 

Is Kira, the beautiful and heavily armed Okalu refugee, their ally…or their enemy? Is Pembroke's daughter Millicent on Egg's side…or her father's? Why on earth is the notorious pirate Burn Healy being so nice to them? And the biggest question of all: what shocking secret is Egg about to discover in the shadow of an ancient Okalu temple?

  1. Thanks so much for the giveaway and author information! I think these both would be great reads for the summer and I look forward to them both!

    I do have a question for Mr. Rodkey!

    Do you have any advice for aspiring authors of this or any genre? Also...do you have any writing rituals like you have to flip the light switch a hundred times before you start or listen to classical music or something?

    Thanks again guys!!!

  2. What inspire you to have the series name The Chronicles of Egg? and What inspire to use Egg as part of the series title?

  3. This looks so great! Thanks for sharing with us! I adore that cover as well.
    Books like this make me wonder whether the author had any influence from friends and family while writing it.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
