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.

    "daughter loved it"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Throne of Fire to be better than the print version?

    my daughter has a reading disablilty so I love to get the audiobook after she reads the text. this allows her review and learn about a lot she missed while reading. Audiobooks have enriched her love for books because she realizes if she takes her time reading a book she will get so much more out of it. I always buy audio books for her required reading for school and essays. she also loves to listen before bed settles her right down.


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

    very well done


    Any additional comments?

    just plane love them.

    The Red Pyramid was good. I thought both performances were great.

    "What can I say, its Rick Riordan at his best"

    I love Rick Riordan's books on mythology. I remember some of the stories of mythology from college studies, but they were so disconnected from today that they were little more than irrelevant. Riordan has a way of making these stories come to life. This book has two readers. Kevin Free is okay - sort of. His reading is a little choppy. I wonder how much he practices the text before he records for production. A reader MUST master the text, or risk making the book sound second-rate. Katherine Kellgren is absolutely one of the best female readers EVER. Her reading is not only smooth, she makes her character come alive. Okay, so here's my complaint about Riordan's books. He is so spread out in what he is doing that we are having to wait a lifetime just to get the next episodes. I'm sure he does not care. He just keeps raking in the money. But for those of us who want to know what happens next, it is maddening.

    I'm on my 315th audiobook since 2007. I only discovered Audible in 2010 and I find it's a great way to manage my audiobook budget.

    "Fun and Easy to Listen to!"

    I loved Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series. This one is just as fun and even informative. I remember loving mythology, but Riordan takes it to a fun level and I find myself wishing I was back in history class learning about Ancient Egypt. I'm sure that there is plenty of artistic license going on, but Riordan makes it believable, as much as believable CAN be. I can't wait to hear more of this series. This one is even better than the first one, which was an awful lot of fun in and of itself!

    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    "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.

    "Awesome Voice Talent"

    Even if you have read the book it is still worth getting this (and the previous Red Pyramid) in audio format. The two voices really bring a lot to the story. The Carter voice is very believable. The Sadie voice is believable and has great comedic timing.
