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.

    I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.

    "Awsome book for the young at heart"
    What made the experience of listening to The Throne of Fire the most enjoyable?

    I think having two different people reading this book helped out a lot. Taking the old egyptian gods and giving them a twist is very good by Rick.


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

    I usually do not read a lot of books like this, but this series is so good that I will read everyone from here on out.


    What does Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    they bring a different listening experience that is unique. They bring life to the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The dwarf god at 4th house at the end.

    "It just keeps getting better!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Throne of Fire the most enjoyable?

    Reading about characters I know and love grow and work through some of the big and small obstacles life offers.


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

    "The Red Pyramid" was a great start to this trilogy, but "Throne of Fire" is like the second time around the roller coaster!


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

    I can't string enough letters together to express how much and how often I found myself doing both!


    Any additional comments?

    On to "The Serpent's Shadow"!

    "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.

    It was easy to understand the meaning of the story and that made it enjoyable.

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


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book was so interesting that I wanted to keep on reading it.

    Story
    "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!

    "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.

    "Full of product placement!!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe, if he likes product placement in an audio book he actually payed money for.


    Any additional comments?

    If I buy something I expect it to be free of commercials and that includes of course product placement! Why is this not illegal in the US like in most other countries on this planet?

    Story
    "Rick Riordan does it again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I definately would, with the understanding the female narrator is a bit rough.


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

    I did enjoy Kevin R Free's voices and narrarion. Katherine Kellgren took a bit of getitng use to but by this book I did also enjoy her side.


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

    I had more than one laugh out loud moment. The story is very well written and the sibling rivalry that develops between Carter and Sadie is very amusing.


    Any additional comments?

    As an adult listening to a book series designed for children I have to question how violent and intense this series (as well as the authors other books) maybe for the targeted 8-12 year old audience. I would put this closer to a teenage/YA age group.

    Walt as he is the most interesting.

    They play it well as the siblings having each individual voice making it work well.
