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.

Lots of fortunate coincidence but good story

Lots of bouncing around in the story. Fortunate coincidence leads to moments of where you are thinking,"this could have happened better," but then the book would have been longer. I hate it when things wrap up too easily or too quickly. The extra words would have been worth the story.

Great Story

Loved the story. Enjoyed Kevin Free's performance.

However, it was ruined by Katherine Kellgren's too, over excited reading throughout her narratives. It would have been much better if she had toned it down.

Another winner! Story telling at it's best!

Loved the story, it was just as exciting and entertaining as the first! Riordan is truly amazing at writing these stories and creating awesome characters. Even though I'm just discovering them at 25, the tales of Sadie and Carter are just as exciting and take me back to a simpler time.

The giant baboon smashing through the London Tube.

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

This is hard to choose. I like Sadie and Bast a lot.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I'm too picky about books made into films. I cannot answer this one.
