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.

it was overall a great story from start to finish. it was fast paced and took me in from page 2. definitely a good sequal.
We liked the battles and characters. We loved the Thrown of Fire in the book. My son (6 1/2) and I loved listening to this series together.
Like the story but I don't like Sadie's voice. She sounds mad all the time.
Katherine sounds really mad and cranky all the time. Bast is a goddess wearing leotard but she performed like Bast was 80 years old.
SO GOOD it is amazing, I've listened to it over 15 times. The actors are amazing and I learned so much it inspired me to buy the book and the whole series. It is completely worth the money!!!
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.
loved this book, the first one grabbed me and is the first book I bought on audible, I didn't realize it was geared towards younger people till my 11 year old daughter told shed read it. either way it's a great series.
