Deadweather and Sunrise

Deadweather and Sunrise
Geoff Rodkey
Young Adult Fantasy
The Chronicles of Egg

Egg lives on Deadwearther an ugly, smelly island full of pirates and cutthroats. Sadly this this not the worst part of Eggs life. His mother died giving birth to him and his family hates him for it. So with siblings who hate him and an abusive father what is a overly smart boy to do.

One day Eggs father finds something odd in the hills and takes them all to the Island of Sunrise, the jewel of the island, to find out what it is. Soon after arriving his family is met by a nice man who invites them over for dinner. As they get to know the new family Egg's dad and siblings has an accident. Now Egg is all alone, living with a family he does not know and something is very wrong.

This is a great book written my a new author. Egg is a smart interesting character that is both believable and incredible, which is hard to do for a writer. Often in books characters are ether annoyingly perfect or ridiculously incompetent. Egg though is a real and balanced character that helps the reader to feel like they are in the story with him.

This odyssey like adventure leads the reader to down a magical path to find love, friendship and family. And although this is just the start of Egg's adventures this book is a good stand alone novel for both children and adults.

I would give this book an 8.1 out of 10. I can;t wait to see what else this amazing author puts out.
