New Lands (The Chronicles Of Egg Book 2) by Geoff Rodkey

New Lands

Here’s my review for the ARC I received of New Lands.  Thank you Penguin for providing me the ARC!  Enjoy!  After Egg’s standdown to Pembroke, he is going away.  He knows Pembroke will try to find him and get the map from him, so he travels with Guts to  Pella Nonna in the New Lands.  In  just three weeks, Guts has become a famous guitar player whom everyone knows, but that is proving to be a distraction to finding the treasure before Pembroke does.  But then something happens after meeting an Okalu girl that leads to a major turn of events; and they get kidnapped.  In a fast-paced, adventurous sequel, will Pembroke make Egg give up the map, or will Egg resist?  Will the impossible happen, where Egg finds his family?  Rodkey pens a delightful read with thrilling action, and does not let readers down.

What I thought about it:

Geoff Rodkey amazes me once again.  Once again, the action is unstoppable in this sequel, and the description is very vivid, painting a bright picture in your head.  The cover art for this sequel in my opinion is amazing, and I think it is better than the first book.  New Lands is pretty much a wild goose chase, with Egg, Millicent, Guts and Kira being chased by all of Pembroke’s men and the Moku tribe.  I can not stress enough how much I love Geoff Rodkey’s writing, it is just…WOW!  I mean, I don’t have any other words to describe it, really.  I also loved the twists and turns in the plot, and they just catch you off guard.  Geoff Rodkey; KEEP WRITING!
