    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."
    "A Tremendous Tale"
    Overall

    Rick Riordan continues to shine light into the forgotten corners of Mythology. Sharing the fabulous stories of the past with the modern audience. It is a series with exceptional diversity, action, humor and a sense of style. If your looking for a series of books that breaks the mold of children's literature look no further.

    Fire in the forest – and a cry for help from a trapped and desperate alien mother! Unfortunately, this is one cry no human can hear. Stephanie Harrington, precocious 14-year-old Provisional Forest Ranger on the planet Sphinx, knows something is wrong from the uneasy emotion that is flooding into her from her treecat friend, Climbs Quickly. But though Stephanie’s alien comrade shares a tight bond with his two-legs, he cannot communicate directly to her. Still, their strong and direct bond of feeling may be enough....

    In the vane of excellent stories about well developed, strong female main characters, Fire Season continues the adventure of Stephanie and Lionheart. If you enjoyed Hunger Games, I expect you will enjoy this series. If your a Honorverse fan it does gives nice insight into Treecats.

    It is the year 2010. Her Divine Majesty, Queen Elizabeth XXX sits upon the throne. Great Britain’s vast Empire is run by alchemy and superstition. Now Sir Rupert Triumff, dashing swordsman, has uncovered a vile plot to dethrone her glorious majesty. For the honour of the nation: to arms! Multi-million selling author Dan Abnett whips up a furious maelstrom of incredible swordfights, wild invention and truly outrageous jokes.

    A very amusing work, refreshing and very much in keeping with the new style. It is interesting to see Abnett's work independent of other IP. I look forward to where he goes with this, with some more work the characters will likely improve.

    After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own.... In a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they'll need the help of some familiar demigods.

    "A New Voice for a New Chapter."
    Overall

    I'll be the first to admit, it is hard to get used to a new reader. I have enjoyed the previous Readers work so much getting used the new "voices" is difficult. But that shouldn't prevent you from enjoying the new story. I suspect there may have been a new editor or something involved, there were a couple wording choices in the first part that weren't consistent with the previous books. However if your new to the series this is a great place to start, it does a wonderful job of re-introducing the setting in whole new light.
