    Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister, Sadie, have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven’t given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet—the chaos snake Apophis—is rising.

    Craig says: "Rick is masterful with history and incrporation."
    "Great book for the whole family!"

    What did you love best about The Throne of Fire?

    We have enjoyed all of Rick Riordan's books. I love it because not only do I enjoy the story but my Grandchildren do too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a "clean" well written story, The dialog is clear enough for even my youngest grandchild to follow.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Sadie has to be my favorite character, her "spunk" is very endearing.

    At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

    amyrex2 says: "I really HATE it when narrators are switched"
    "Good story but very poor performance!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would ONLY recommend this book if they have read the first four.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The only way to improve the performance would be to use someone else. He cannot keep his voices separate and has a hard time with the female characters to list a few problems


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I think this is the weakest of the series. It's very "dark"
