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.

Great job on dual narrating

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.

loved it always

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.

Great Story

The two narators really sound like they are playing off each other like siblings. The story flows at a good pace and is a very good sequil to the first book.

Obnoxious

Real struggle to finish. Found characters too overwhelming and narration to be a bit on the contributing side of that.

Good story. Bad performance on Sadie's part

Where does The Throne of Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Like the story but I don't like Sadie's voice. She sounds mad all the time.

What didn’t you like about Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren ’s performance?

Katherine sounds really mad and cranky all the time. Bast is a goddess wearing leotard but she performed like Bast was 80 years old.
