    Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

    Overall

    Enjoyed the first book. Second didn't appeal to me the same way. Third is mostly about the nightmares, the kisses, the nostalgia and was a big let down for me. Instead of elaborating on the war against the capital and uncovering the actors that double crossed her, the lead character wallows in pain, suffering and self pity. The author could have taken the subsequent books to a new level instead of using the same old formulas over and over again.

    New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

    Story

    Overall I enjoyed the story.

    **** Spoilers ****

    I wish that Daniel had the smarts to not be alone with a guy who he didn't trust and about whom he had already received disconcerting report about. Also, Parker's good guy nature didn't jive with his actions. If he knew Noah to be a killer, he should have warned Maris (even before he fell in love with her). If he valued Celine's (Mary Catherine's) life so much how come he didn't care if Maris and Daniel were in mortal danger. Especially after he pretty much knew that Noah had killed Daniel. He still sent her back that morning with no warnings. This is very incongruous with the hard outer shell with a gooey angel center of the man who couldn't even get himself to kill his worst enemy image that the author was trying to project. Also, how could Maris be so stupid? She waited to talk to her father after finding out about Noah's true nature! And she is supposed to be a smart and sharp business woman. Come on. She was hurt emotionally and physically by the guy. Then she leaves her old dad with no indications of Noah's malevolence and runs of to Parker! That is very improbable and only reason it was done to add more 'spice' to the story. To tug at the reader's emotions when Daniel dies but it is completely unbelievable.

    To me the author fails to keep Parker's, Maris and Daniel's character real. It's a shame. I would have wanted to read more from this author if it weren't for the above reasons.

    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."
    "Weak"
    Overall

    After listening to the first Kane book I thought it had promise and could rise up to the Percy Jackson series. This second installment is somewhat of a disappointment. The kids sounded petulant and casual about their challenges. The ending was mildly exciting but it leaves the users hanging. The duration is short as well. I think they cut this book way short.
