“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 bestselling author of the Percy Jackson series on Deadweather and Sunrise.
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.
Blue Sea Burning is the conclusion to Egg’s adventures. After the first two books, we find Egg wanting revenge on Roger Pembroke for almost killing him and keeping a whole tribe slaves. He is with his uncle, the dread Burn Healy, who has his own problems after saving his nephew, such as his nemesis Ripper Jones, a ruthless pirate. It’s all he can do to keep his crew together after his dashing rescue, but he cannot seem to help Egg any further, leaving him to his own devices. I love Egg and his companions, especially Guts, who seems to be falling for the stunning Kira, a native who is seeking to save her tribe from slavery. Guts curses in the most extraordinary ways, most of it gibberish acceptable for younger readers but you still get the point that expletives are his main way of expressing himself. These books are full of action, adventure and great characters.
The Chronicles of Egg is a series I would point pirate-loving readers towards, served with a side of great characters and hilarious moments.
