"Lemony Snicket meets Pirates of the Caribbean, with a sprinkling of Tom Sawyer for good measure."--Rick Riordan, bestselling author

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?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Hoping that the mysterious Okalu tribe may be able to decipher the undecipherable treasure map in his mind, 13-year-old Egg travels over seas and through jungles to find them, having only just evaded a painful death in the less dark Deadweather and Sunrise (2012). He is accompanied by his sidekick, Guts, who is fluent at cusswords in made-up languages; Millicent, his unrequited love whose evil father supports slave trading; and some characters new to the series. There are pirates and dangers galore and plenty of grossness and surprises. With such an able hero and entertaining narrator as Egg, readers will hope that the adventure continues.--Medlar, Andrew Copyright 2010 Booklist"
