The throne of fire by Rick riordan is an Egyptian surprise. Sadie and Carter are the main characters and are only teens. As Ra is sleeping the giant snake Apophis is rising going to destroy the world. Sadie and Carter are going to do anything to save the world including lose their friends. I would recomend this novel to anyone interested in Egyptian mythology as it teaches you a lot. If you are around the age 14 and up I say it is a good idea to read. I would compare it to any other of his books because they all involve a form of mythology.
This is a great second book to the Kane series. In the last book Carter and Sadie Kane found out that they are descendants from two major Egyptian pharaoh blood-lines. they also found out that they were each hosting a god witch at the end of the book they "released". They start the book off with a great hook. it starts off with Carter and Sadie with two new recruits named Walt and Jaz. they are at museum trying to find the first out of 3 scrolls to reawaken the sun god Ra. they find it and as soon as Sadie picks it up spirits come out and attack. after that a battle breaks loose and Jaz ends up sacrificing herself to save the other three. In the book it is just battle after battle with a few puzzles here and there. Rick Riordan is my favorite author, I love mythology and he takes the three best known gods, Greek, Roman, and Egyptian, and made them into there own series. i think mythology is great topic to write about because there are endless possibilities of what you can do with it. i think its funny because Rick Riordan makes little references to his other books. the book Throne of Fire is full of excitement from one page to another. Even when Carter and Sadie are in an nursing home he finds a way to fit in a huge back story and still have time to have allot of excitement. The book great overall, with them going to an under world nursing home for the gods to an invisible mansion on top of a factory in New York the Kane's adventures never seem to stop. I can't wait for the next book that Rick Riordan publishes
I totally enjoyed this book and I think that Riordan's writing has improved since he began his Percy Jackson series. In this, the second book of the Kane Chronicles, Sadie, who celebrates her 13th birthday in an unusual and unexpected way, and her brother Carter, who are descendents of the pharoahs and therefore can host the Egyptian gods and goddesses, have recruited other kids who can also do ancient Egyptian magic. With help from their friends and some friendly Egyptian gods, they battle their enemies in order to find Ra and restore him to his throne. Filled with adventure, magic, humor and a little romance, this book is a really fun read!
I love this series!! It is definitely getting more complex as the story evolves. I'm a big fan of Egyptian myths and legends and I really enjoy how this book brings them into the modern day. I can't wait for the next one to come out!
