“Lemony Snicket meets Pirates of the Caribbean, with a sprinkling of Tom Sawyer for good measure.”—Rick Riordan, bestselling author

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?

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Raves for New Lands

"The plot follows a classic adventure arc but remains nonetheless surprising: the characters never quite behave in expected ways . . . 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. Fans of Egg will be glad for the sequel and anxious for the concluding installment."—BCCB

"The second installment of the Chronicles of Egg delivers more danger, diabolical plots and dastardly villains than the first, and that’s saying a lot . . .  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."—Kirkus Reviews

This is a fast-paces and wonderful second installment to The Chronicles of Egg series. I Just love Egg and Guts and I really enjoyed the addition of Kira to the team. New Lands is laugh out loud funny. A truly enjoyable read. Not to be missed.

Egg’s Journey of Danger Continues Egg and Guts are heading to New Lands in an attempt to follow the map that Egg has memorized to the location of the ancient treasure left hidden years ago. However, they are warned that the people of Pella Nonna, the city in this continent, will kill them on sight because they are a different race. Worse yet, if they somehow survive that, they will need to journey into the parts of this land inhabited by the Natives, some of whom will also kill them on sight. Will they be able to survive long enough to get the help they need in their quest? Since I enjoyed the first book, I was very much looking forward to reading this book, and I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest. Everything I enjoyed about the first book was back – fasted paced plot, great characters, and fun humor. I will admit at one point I was thinking the plot was beginning to slow, but then it jumped to lightning speed for the rest of the book. Since this book is a continuation of the story started in the first one, I highly recommend you read them in order. That won’t be an issue at all since you’ll find yourself hooked on both of them in no time. Now, to await Egg’s final adventure. It can’t come soon enough for me. NOTE: I won an ARC of this book in a contest. The review is still my own.
