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.

“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 best-selling author of the Percy Jackson series on Deadweather and Sunrise)
Excellent plot twists, character development, and dramatic use of setting. The narrator is perfect for the protagonist's voice and all the pirates' voices. Recommend: for readers 10 years old and older (younger kids will enjoy but maybe not appreciate the full story); for anyone who enjoys action/adventures, a bit of romance, clever young heroes who aren't perfect; and for those who are going on a long road trip with kids. This is one the entire family will enjoy and likely stay in the car in the driveway to finish!
