In general I love the books of Rick Riordan but for me The Kane Chronicles were just okay. I think the story was great and it was really well written and I liked learning about Ancient Egyptian mythology but the main characters annoyed me. The characters bugged me so much it took away from the story. ( )

Carter and Sadie Kane recently learned the surprising and life-changing history of their family. But they won't get much time to process it as Apophis is rising and the rest of the House of Life isn't keen on helping them stop him. The only solution seems to be finding and reviving Ra, but doing so may mean embarking on their most perilous journey yet. But can they do it before Apophis breaks free--something that seems inevitable to happen in just a few days' time?

Of course, I love these books. Modern takes on mythology always interest me and Rick Riordan puts these stories together in such an organic and interesting way. There's a bit more action in this book than the first, but I also think it provides an opportunity to better understand the way in which the Egyptian pantheon exists in the Kanes' world. I was definitely left looking forward to seeing how things wrap up for them in the final book of the trilogy... ( )

*This review can also be found on my blog Love At First Write*

Rick Riordan is one of my favorite authors of all time! I honestly wasn’t sure about my choice of reading The Kane Chronicles because I’m not as into Egyptian mythology as I am with Greek, but this series is great! I’m sure I’d have enjoyed the book even more if I was really into Egyptian myth, but Rick describes the gods/creatures so adeptly that anyone could read and enjoy this book. It’s a remarkable way to teach kids the culture of ancient Egypt. Grab their attention with intense action and sassy characters while inserting actual facts so they learn while also enjoying it.

The fact that the kids aren’t super-human demigods but magicians descended from the ancient pharaohs of Egypt is an awesome concept. I don’t think the book would have been as enjoyable if these kids were similar to the kids of Camp Half-Blood/Camp Jupiter. Weapons are great and all, but the Hieroglyphs being divine words of power and creating spells was so cool. That being said, the changes were kind of weird at first. I mean, OLD magicians, gods traveling as companions, CELLPHONES. Once I got into the changes The Throne of Fire made for a great book. Something I don’t understand is how the 21st nome can be in Brooklyn, and Mt. Olympus and a bunch of demigods can be in Manhattan and they don’t know about each other and notice when the world is about to end because of another group of gods. Like how does the mist work on the Egyptians? I mean, Percy had the sky turned blue to signal to his mom that he was ok. The Egyptians didn’t see that when they were right there? Or the invisibility spell on the Greeks? Carter and Sadie could see the fight at the 21st nome from outside the spell, so if a demidog just happened to be, oh I don’t know, flying around on his Pegasus, you’re telling me he wouldn’t notice?? Clearly Carter and Percy have had an interaction and both seen the same monster and the same for Sadie and Annabeth. Plus Amos said to not go into Manhattan, so there has to be something going on about all this. What would even happen if they realized that there were other gods wanting to destroy the world???

Anyway, back on topic, this book was absolutely hilarious, which is one of the reasons why I love Rick Riordan’s writing. He can have a completely serious and intense life-or-death situation and insert the best comic relief. For example, Apophis is going to break free of his prison and bring chaos to the world and Carter is grumbling over how Sadie bought him Pikachu pajamas (ADORABLE by the way). The pop culture references throughout the book are what make this so relatable and modern. They also make the book a refreshing read. Carter and Sadie have impressive personalities and their brother-sister relationship was so relatable. The bickering and teasing weren’t too over-the-top and deep down they actually care for each other and are the people who know each other best.

Getting to meet new gods like Bes the Dwarf God, Tawaret protector of childbirth, Ptah the creator, Khonsu the moon and time. Not going to say why/how they meet them because of spoilers, but it was all really interesting.

The only thing I have against this book is Sadie’s age. She turns 13 in this book, yet she acts extremely mature for her age. It’s hard to remember that she’s only 12/13. I don’t know about you guys, but I wasn’t kissing two different guys on my 13th birthday, and I certainly wasn’t setting myself up for a love triangle at that age either. I guess I wouldn’t be able to read about hot Anubis if it wasn’t for Sadie’s interest, but still she’s only 13!

All in all, not as good as PJ&tO or HoO, but it was entertaining and a fun read. Besides, nothing can really compare to Percy Jackson or Heroes of Olympus. I’m already getting ready to read The Serpent’s Shadow. I can’t wait! ( )

I don't really have particularly much to add for Throne of Fire that I didn't already say for The Red Pyramid.

Basically, more of the same. The Kanes have five days to save the world (it's impressive how even something like that can start to get old after a dozen novels...). They proceed to do so.

One particularly weird part this time: Sadie takes the time in the second day of the novel to go to Londor for her birthday. The fate of the world hangs in the balance... And you can teleport around the world. You can go to London later.

Another slight downside is that this very much feels like the middle book of a trilogy (which of course it is). It works more to set up the third and final book rather than being able to stand by itself. That doesn't necessarily make it bad, but it's not great when it's that obvious.

On the up side, the cast of characters has expanded a bit with a few new trainee godlings brought into the fold, apparently from that audio recording from the first novel.

Still, it was an entertaining enough read and kept me going enough that I still want to finish the trilogy. ( )

I do like this series and I've been having a blast listening to them with my 8 year old son. I liked the first book better but he liked this one better. So there you go. ( )
