Marvelous Middle Grade Monday - Deadweather and Sunrise (part 2)

When I posted last week about DEADWEATHER AND SUNRISE by Geoff Rodkey, I hadn't finished the book yet.  Since I have read the entire book now, I thought I would share my comments from Goodreads.

DEADWEATHER AND SUNRISE: The Chronicles of Egg, Book One 
by Geoff Rodkey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to admit, I was a little unsure about this book when I started reading it. Pirates really aren't my thing. But, I was totally hooked by the first couple of chapters. Egbert, or Egg as he becomes known, is a true hero. He tries to do the right thing, even if it means dying or losing the girl he loves. And as it often happens with a hero, their choices end up being in their favor, just maybe not at first glance. The book was filled with continual action and took twists and turns I had no idea were coming. I'm very curious to see how Burn Healy's character is involved in all the action, and I do have a few guesses I'm keeping to myself. The description of the islands and characters were wonderful, and I could picture everything in my head as I read. I can't wait to start Book 2 - New Lands!

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher/publicity company for my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own.

Thanks for stopping by on this first day of April! For other great MMGM links, please see the list to the right on my website.  This will likely be my last post for a few weeks. I have some personal writing goals I want to reach and need to take a step back from social media to free up more writing time. So if you don't see me around, that's what I'm doing. :)  Have a great week!
