Marvelous Middle Grade Monday - New Lands and a Giveaway!

A couple months ago I posted about the first book in the Chronicles of Egg series - DEADWEATHER AND SUNRISE.  Today's MMGM features the second book, NEW LANDS, which was released the beginning of May. Read to the end of the post for a giveaway of both books!

by: Geoff Rodkey
released May 2013

NEW LANDS picks up right where DEADWEATHER AND SUNRISE left off.
From Goodreads:
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?

I'm about halfway through the book and loving it. This second book features more mystery then the first (like what is Burn Healy really up to?), but still is filled with action and adventure. I can't wait to find out what Egg is going to discover.

G.P. Putnam's Sons has graciously offered a giveway of a paperback copy of DEADWEATHER AND SUNRISE and a hardcover copy of NEW LANDS. Please see the Rafflecopter form below to enter.  Just a reminder, in order for your comments below or other options to count in the giveaway, please use the Rafflecopter form to enter your email address. I will post the winner next Monday.
