This book is history masquerading as a fun, fast-paced story. My kids loved this book because the story was fun and exciting, but the author mixed in so much Egyptian history and mythology that my kids really learned something. It's certainly not a textbook, but it made the topic fun and has inspired my kids to learn more about Ancient Egypt.
I should add that the narration was suburb. Both were good, but Katherine Kellgren was outstanding--she brings Sadie to life.
I was crying when they found out what had happened to Bess. But overall I loved the book I'm so sad that there's only one book left.
Rick Riordan, love his books, wish I had another credit just to keep going!!!! Start from the Percy Jackson series, & then the Olympians, then this, he's writing cross over stories & hopefully audible will get them soon!!!
What do you even say about yourself on an audio book site? I like books? I don't have time to read anymore so I listen?
Having gotten used to the narration style in the last book, I was able to enjoy it fully in this book. I love all of the characters, none of them are shallow and many of them have entire stories of their own to tell.
My only gripe is pretty much my same as the first book. The kids ages are just stated as way to young to be accurate for how they act. Every time age comes up I just roll my eyes and pretend they are older. It's annoying but solves my problem.
I have to say the Rick Riordan is so good with all his books... I love the the Percy Jackson and then I read Heroes of Olympus and i just love all his books...So NOW i am on the Kane Chronicles and I love it just as much.... All his books are so good
Yes, I would. This book is funny, but also sweet, and action packed. Sadie and Carter are great characters.
Maybe, if he likes product placement in an audio book he actually payed money for.
If I buy something I expect it to be free of commercials and that includes of course product placement! Why is this not illegal in the US like in most other countries on this planet?
