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
    "A história segue o padrão do autor."

    Uma releitura da mitologia egípcia em uma aventura adolescente.
    Uma pena que o narrador dos personagens não tiveram grande desempenho. O narrador de Carter, fez a mesma interpretação de Perry Jackson e a narradora da Sade exagerou no sotaque e nas expressões de exitação.

    Story
    "I like the story but the narrators sort of bother me..."

    This series is very interesting and I am enjoying it very much. I have one small problem with the narrators though. I feel like the guy is not very good at doing accents and Sadie's narrator sounds annoying when she's talking as Sadie. I think Carter's normal voice is great but when he speaks as Sadie or Zia the accent is all wrong! On the other hand I feel like Sadie's normal voice is too shrilly and then all the other characters she reads as sound great! I don't dislike them, I just find it to be an odd quirk about how I feel towards these audiobooks. If I was reading the book myself I would truly enjoy the story.

    Story
    "Amazing book!"

    I like this book because of saidie。I think that she is sassy, and "brilliant" as she might say. That, coming out of me, a eight year old girl (no I did not have help with this paragraph ) has to be true. Rick Riordan is my favorite author and was hinting about my favorite series , Percy Jackson and the Olympians when he said carter saw a flying horse. I assume it was black jack, but it could have been some one else.

    Story
    "Katherine the great!"
    If you could sum up The Throne of Fire in three words, what would they be?

    AWESOME I loved this book. The characters developed well, and it captured and portrayed the sibling rivalry to a tee, so to speak.


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

    Any of the other Rick Riordan books. Especially like the Percy Jackson series. Riordan's characters are entertaining and the way he builds his suspense is really enjoyable.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Saddie Kane was the absolute best thing ever! Bast(?) the cat was also wonderfully voiced.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the time and the price, very entertaining.

    Story
    "History and Entertainment...for Kids!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Throne of Fire the most enjoyable?

    This book is history masquerading as a fun, fast-paced story. My kids loved this book because the story was fun and exciting, but the author mixed in so much Egyptian history and mythology that my kids really learned something. It's certainly not a textbook, but it made the topic fun and has inspired my kids to learn more about Ancient Egypt.

    I should add that the narration was suburb. Both were good, but Katherine Kellgren was outstanding--she brings Sadie to life.
