The Throne of Fire: Kane Chronicles, Book 2

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.

Publisher's Summary

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. If they don’t prevent him from breaking free in a few days’ time, the world will come to an end.

In other words, it’s a typical week for the Kane family. To have any chance of battling the Forces of Chaos, the Kanes must revive the sun god Ra. But that would be a feat more powerful than any magician has ever accomplished. First they have to search the world for the three sections of the Book of Ra, then they have to learn how to chant its spells. Oh, and did we mention that no one knows where Ra is exactly?

Narrated in two different wisecracking voices, featuring a large cast of new and unforgettable characters, and with adventures spanning the globe, this second installment in the Kane Chronicles is nothing short of a thrill ride.

Enchanted? Listen to more Kane Chronicles.

    Story
    "Rick is masterful with history and incrporation."

    If you can get your kids to read these books then you are doing them a favor. These books are just plain fun but they also have many hidden treasures. The books have legends and history and ancient tales for them to read and maybe even remember. These are lessons that may creep up in school. These books have some fun mixed with knowledge. I cannot think of a better thing for a kid than to read for fun and accidentally learn something. The 30 Clues series is the same. Many historical and geographic facts mixed with a fun story.

    "A Tremendous Tale"

    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.

    "Listened with my 8 year old"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Throne of Fire?

    We loved the part where Set is trapped in a jar and keeps saying things like,


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to most of this with my son and we had a great time. Sometimes scenes were so funny that we stopped and repeated the lines over and over. He listened to it all. He had read the book first and enjoyed hearing the characters' voices. He laughed, he cried. Overall great book.

    Story
    "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!

    "A solid read for young adults"
    What did you like best about The Throne of Fire? What did you like least?

    I liked the elements of the Egyptian Mythos. The story started strong but did tend to lag near the middle/


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rick Riordan again?

    Yes, he did a good job and this was a book I could listen to with my 11 year old daughter and enjoy.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    this is the only work from the narrarators I have heard. they did an excellent job and I would love to listen to more of their work in the future.


    Was The Throne of Fire worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The story isn't the best , but its pretty good for young adult fiction. As I said this is a fun book you can listen yo with your children.

    "An interesting and attractive book"
    Where does The Throne of Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is up among Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and all the other books. It's one of the best.


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

    Of course I'll compare it to "The Red Pyramid", because it's the same series.


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

    It made me laugh a lot, it is just full of fun.

    "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.

    Story
    "Throne of Fire doesn't dissapoint!"
    If you could sum up The Throne of Fire in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, humorous, entertaining


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sadie Kane is my favorite character because of the way Rick Riordan has given her a great sense of humor as she goes through teen angst, the pains of becoming a magician, and some incredible adventures.


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

    They infuse both main characters with a living, breathing personality that is both believable and accessible to the reader/ listener. And every other character comes to life as well!


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

    ...laugh mostly, cry a couple of times.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this whole series. It's not just a "kids" book. I love the Egpytian mythology facts as Riordan weaves them seamlessly into the story. I love that he has created a REAL muticultural family. Just a great time!
