    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."
    "Love pretty much anything Rick Riordan writes..."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Throne of Fire again? Why?

    My boys have varied interests but they agree on listening to books in the car especially one like this with a high interest level for three very active boys. The descriptions, dialogue, and the twists and turns of a well-developed sequence of events leads to many discussions and an interest in reading. I can't say enough great things about audio books, and this edition was excellent!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Really annoying & can truly understand why Amanda asked him to stop calling. I was thrilled when the sample ended.


    Has Your First Listen turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    How could the performance have been better?

    probably not...content was bad so performance was as good as it could be.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Your First Listen?

    many

    Writing test scores indicate that boys have fallen far behind girls across the grades. In general, boys don't enjoy writing as much as girls. What's wrong? How can we do a better of job of creating "boy-friendly" classrooms so their voices can be heard?

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

    Yes...as a teacher, I want to be able to help all of my students succeed in writing, but it wasn't until I experienced a male student crumpling in tears when asked to brainstorm that I realized I wasn't reaching all of children. This book was a great resource and tool to aid me in creating writers in spite of gender.

    n/a


    What aspect of the narrators’s performance would you have changed?

    flat tone - nonfiction true but could have been more enthusiastic
