This is yet another excellent installment in the Kane Chronicles. My biggest gripe with these books are the interjections in the "transcribed recordings," but I also don't talk or think like a 13 year old considering I'm 31, so I'll let that go.

This book chronicles Sadie and Carter Kane's attempt to restore Ra to the throne, simultaneously angering both Isis and Horus since Ra's return takes the throne away from Horus. Riordan does an excellent job setting up the plot for subsequent books. I feel like Zia's role will become more important as time goes on, and I'm really hoping that Walt will find a cure for his curse. Sadie annoyed me a bit with her boy craziness, but I have a feeling that will also be hammered out in later books.

In this book, they mention again the gods that live in Manhattan, so I can't help but feel like the Egyptian, Greek, and Roman gods will, at some point, merge into one storyline. I can't wait until the next book!
