The only people who can help him sort out the mystery of why he's been marked for death are Millicent and a one-handed, possibly deranged cabin boy. Come along for the ride. You'll be glad you did. I wasn't expecting that. At all.
Deadweather and Sunrise: The Chronicles of Egg, Book 1
When I received this book for review I wasn't anticipating to love it as much as I did. In fact, I was kind of weary, because I was thinking: middle grade and pirates. How can this be the type of book I would enjoy. Well let me just tell you, I was wrong, dead wrong.
I loved this book so much, I'm not sure how I can even give such a magnificent book justice, but I will try. The author paints such vivid imagery in your head, that you devour the words, sometimes reading them over and over until you have that beautiful, fixed image in your mind that he painted with words. The settings he created were so realistic, yet they had that hint of fantasy, pure genius. The main character Egbert later known as Egg was incredible.
He was the type of guy I would love to know. He was sensitive, caring and brave and they way he loved Millicent, it was stunning. What I also loved about Egg and Millie's romance, was that Egg was a real gentleman towards her, he didn't push anything and didn't say anything till he was sure she loved him back.

And Millie? I don't know who wouldn't love Millicent. She is smart and will do what she thinks is right, she won't back down in a fight and will grab her rifle and aim, literally. She is a lovely character and has brilliant traits and charisma that a good heroine needs. Deadweather and Sunrise is now available in paperback. Kid Lit Reviews. This sounds super interesting.
