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
    "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.

    What do you even say about yourself on an audio book site? I like books? I don't have time to read anymore so I listen?

    Story
    "Better Than the First"

    Having gotten used to the narration style in the last book, I was able to enjoy it fully in this book. I love all of the characters, none of them are shallow and many of them have entire stories of their own to tell.

    My only gripe is pretty much my same as the first book. The kids ages are just stated as way to young to be accurate for how they act. Every time age comes up I just roll my eyes and pretend they are older. It's annoying but solves my problem.
