Just finished reading this awesome book! So much fun! The descriptions were exceptional and while the book had its action and adventure, it was also really humorous. Almost every page had me giggling. As for the characters themselves, my two favorites were Egg and Guts. Egg was an excellent main character. He was funny and determined. And Guts, well Guts was absolutely insane! Literally. Completely cuckoo. But I enjoy the odd insane character from time to time, especially when they make me laugh. I enjoyed Millicent as well, although she seemed a bit of a brat, she was still confident and adventurous. I also appreciated the descriptions, particularly the ones of the weather around Deadweather….I could just feel the stifling air and the stickiness of the humidity. Of course that could also be because it’s been wicked hot and humid here as well…but the author hit the description of how it feels right on the head in my opinion. The book had a semi-satisfying ending. No drop off cliff hanger, but it does leave itself set up for the next book in the Chronicles of Egg. I say semi-satisfying because I really wanted to see what would happen to Egg and his friends next, but unfortunately I will have to wait for the next book. While it left some questions unanswered and created new ones with the way the adventure seemed to resolve itself, I didn’t feel that it just got cut off mid story so I guess I can wait ’til the next one comes out. Honestly, The Chronicles of Egg: Deadweather and Sunrise is a GREAT book. I’m giving it 5 out of 5 controllers. I think kids and adults will both get a kick out of Egg and his adventures. Definitely good for boys as well as girls. Middle Graders will all approve! Originally Reviewed At:Mother/Gamer/Writer Reviewer: AimeeKay

Picked it up and couldn't put it down. Pacing was great, lots of twists and turns and the characters were each very unique. Can't wait for the second installment!

Great book - and not just for the kids! The humor and depth of the characters speaks to the grown-ups as well. Anxious to see what happens to Egg next.

When Egbert "Egg" Masterson leaves the family island unexpectedly, he never expects to find himself on his own and fighting to stay alive. Can he evade those who are after him long enough to find out why they want him dead? This is an inventive middle grade series. It's not our world but not fantasy either, and I had no problem jumping into that world. There's lots of action for guys with Egg always on the run from killers and pirates. Definitely planning on reading the next one myself soon.

The Chronicles of Egg is filled with a bevy of interesting characters. From Egg, who really has a sob story of a life to the pirates who aren&rsquo;t quite always bad; there is no shortage of interesting people. I do wish that there were more background on all of these characters as they are the part of the book I liked the best. I wasn&rsquo;t keen on the way Egg&rsquo;s family behaves towards him or how they disappear and Egg seems to get over it immediately. Granted due to how they acted towards him I can understand not crying buckets, but he often talks about his father&rsquo;s redeeming qualities, which I would have thought would have inspired more love, it felt off to me. The different locations were inventive and all the horror of the pirates was awesome. The story was simple and cute and middle grade readers will enjoy the adventure throughout.
