Throne of Fire (Kane Chronicles #2)
To be honest, I enjoyed this book more than its predecessor, The Red Pyramid. And I just enjoyed the story more and the humor. But unfortunately, its still not as good as the Percy Jackson and the...more
like saving the world from the biggest serpent ever, or knocking babbon out of the bridge.
things like that.
but there were also secret things each of them wanted to do and to do that, they had to sacrifice some things. even if there were chances the world was going to collapse in five-days...
for some things, I felt a little disappointed about this book. which is, pretty suck since I was so dreaded to read it.
still, such a fun book you must never miss...more
The way they saved the world was predictable. I can even guess that when they gambled with Khonsu. And one more thing, the main charactors were Sadie AND Carter, not just Sadie. I felt like everything was...more
In the Throne of Fire, the world is about to end. Again. [Gasp. Sorry, Bog just poked me in the ribs.]
Riordan's prose is generally quite tight, and well written. [Thank you, Bog, I would like a drink.] But, he chose to use the same ridiculous [Yes, Bog, I could have used a stronger word here, bu...more
A petición de una amiga mía, Ale, aquí está mi reseña de El Trono de Fuego, segundo libro de Las Crónicas de Kane.
En primer lugar, quizá deba mencionar lo mucho que me gustan las historias de Rick Riordan. Leí toda la saga de Percy Jackson y los Dioses del Olimpo y me encantó, además de que ansío leer más sobre las aventuras de los semidioses y sobre cierta profecía en El Héroe Perdido, primer libro de la saga Los Héroes del Olimpo.
Me encanta la mitología. Griega, romana, nórdica, egipcia, casi...more
Lanjut, gara-gara penasaran dan bokek akhirnya saya membaca Thrones of fire dalam format ebook plus audiobook. Awalnya mau sok denger audiobook doang, ngek, malah ga ngerti Sadie ngomong apa, akhirnya jalan tengah yang saya ambil. Dengar audibook sambil baca ebook, terus terang ini pengalaman pertama saya mendengar audiobook, seru sih karena saya membayangkan tokoh Sadie tidak s...more
It opens strong with Carter trying to liberate a magical item from a museum, only to have things go horribly wrong. It's a dramatic and funny opening but that initial energy and humor slowly peters out.
Although I normally adore Egyptian mythology, the pacing felt off here. The chapter alternate betwe...more
It's told in the same format -- as if a transcript from a recording, made by Sadie and Carter in turn, with (small) interjections from their current setting. And instead of merely intimidating that the Egyptian-god-related characters don't go into Manhattan because it's someone else's bailiwick, and mentioning Hermes at a different time, in this one, Carter positively mentions seeing winged horses over Manhat...more
Here, once again Riordan's hero kids are faced with the end of the world coming in five days. So what does the girl do? S...more
No segundo volume da série As Crônicas dos Kane, Riordan novamente se dá o trabalho de transcrever os áudios gravados por Carter e Sadie e nos permite conhecer as novas aventuras dos irmãos Kane. Aqueles que gost...more
I just finished The Serpent's Shadow - the third and last instalment in The Kane Chronicles - and decided that instead of reviewing only that one book, I'd review that whole trilogy.
Now, I love Rick Riordan, he's an amazing writer - probably one of my favourites. He did not disappoint with The Kane Chronicles. It was a great trilogy, and I'm quite sad that it's over. It's focused a lot on Egyptian mythology, just like Percy Jackson and the Olympians in on Greek myth...more

However, this time, they are accompanied by their apprentices, specifically a boy named Walt Stone. The Kanes are godlings, or hosts of gods, and they must use their magic to awaken the ruler of the gods, Ra, and thwart the serpent Apophis' plan to swallow up the sun and have Chaos rule t...more

The adventure also starts from the get go. Apophis, the God of Chaos is rising and preparing to des...more
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' t
Throne of fire is about two magicans who have to raise the god Ra in order to save the world.
I would recommend this book for anyone who likes to laugh.
I gave it a 5 because it is funny and doesn't stop the action.
“The sign was spray-painted in Arabic and English, probably from some attempt by the farmer to sell his wares in the market. The English read: Dates-best price. Cold Bebsi.

"Bebsi?" I asked.
"Pepsi," Walt said. "I read about it on the Internet. There's no 'p' in Arabic. Everyone here calls the soda Bebsi."
"So you have to have Bebsi with your bizza?"
