New Lands, the second in The Chronicles of Egg series, continues the misadventures of Egbert & Company, trying to find the Fist of Ka before the ruthless Pembroke does.
I found the story bright and vivid, imaginative and daring, without giving into a formulaic plot with predictable outcomes. The story is clean, well written and suitable for young readers and others who enjoy a good story.
This book adds twists and surprises: some hilarious, others on the sad side. Not everything is set in the first book, as will be seen. I enjoy seeing the growth in all the characters, and sensing their different voices. It makes their characters stand out and they seem real.
Hats off to Geoff Rodkey for a story well told!
