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.

I enjoy all of Rick Riordan books and this one was no exception.
The female narrator was a bit annoying, her voice a little shrilly (if that's even a word) she was the more dramatic of the two, which I loved and hated. I appreciated the love of the two siblings. I would love for Carter to have a cleansing moment with the grandparents. I can't wait for book 3!
This was the best book ever, I feel
t that I could feel what they were feeling and I could relate to them in many other ways. Thank you Rick Riordan for an amazing nook, I hope you continue to create amazing books.
Absolutely. I love the switching narrators. It added a lot more depth and personality to the two main characters.
This story is a perfect audio book. It has both the 2 main characters narrate the story as if they were recording it. Fun story and creative with the Egyptian culture.
Roirdan follows his winning formulas and out works for me every time. I love the Sassy girl shero and. the vulnerability of the boy. I do wish there was less demonizing of the Goddesses, but it's not enough to stop me coming back.
