    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."
    "An engaging audio and an engaging read!"

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

    Yes, my son is the one listening to these and he loves the characters, the interaction and the accuracy to mythological legends.


    What other book might you compare The Throne of Fire to and why?

    It's actually a better read than Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series because it's better written and a much better set of performers on the audio version!


    What does Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    My son loved the interplay between the two characters and how they rounded out the idea of a brother-sister team without making the reading sound dry.

    The reality is that I buy the audiobooks specifically so that my son who is dyslexic can stay well read and on his grade level despite his inability to read. He is almost twelve years old and these characters spoke to him. Frequently, audiobooks are read without inflection and without the reality that someone with language deficits needs in order to integrate language. These two readers hit all the high points, as well as covering a variety of accents.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Thousands of Years of Family Drama Comes to Life!

    What made the experience of listening to Darke: Septimus Heap, Book Six the most enjoyable?

    My son just enjoys the series and the way it curves through the girls stories and the boys stories without sounding like it's only girly or boy
