Signe Wulff It's amazing!!!! There's so much humor, and… well I couldn't let it go until I was finished with the entire thing :D
Ranee Babu I thought it was pretty good, I mean I am really not into Egyptian mythology but if you like it then I think it would be a good book to keep reading.

Me encanta la relación que tienen los Kane, nuevamente Rick abordando la mitología desde un punto de vista moderno, juvenil y divertido. Todo el viaje de los Kane para despertar a Ra y evitar que Apofis se libere y el caos consuma el mundo es maravilloso, inquietante, trepidante y lleno de aventuras imposibles de superar.

Espero leer pronto el tercer libro y cerrar esta saga

3.5/5 stars

This was so fun! I love Carter and Sadie as characters and narrators, they're so sassy and fun and the best. However, the story and the conflict just hasn't been grabbing my attention. It's fun but not amazing? Would still recommend for fans of Riordan. It's not as good as his other stuff but it's still super fun!

If I can say nothing else about Rick Riordan (RR) I will say he is without a doubt an entertaining storyteller no matter what age you are. While his Percy Jackson series are still my favorites I enjoyed this book more than The Red Pyramid.

The best thing about this book is that there are more kids. It just makes for a little more humor when you have kids interacting with other kids instead of adults. Now that Sadie and Carter are helping to train some new kids at Brooklyn house there is rooms for

Reading dozens of books after this, I may have forgotten most of the events I read in this book but I do recall how much I enjoyed reading this sequel to The Red Pyramid. :)

okay, 2 stars rate has never happened with Rick Riordan's works, until now. I found The Throne of Fire is really well written with some great twist but this book is so, unoriginal. Let's see.. The world is at the end.Check. Two kids are their savior. Check. Mob of monster and obstacles. Check.

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

Nuevamente Rick Riordan me sorprende con uno de sus libros, Sadie y Kane siguen sus aventuras mientras tratan de salvar al mundo de su destrucción. No diré más porque no quiero spoilearlos, pero si aún no leen esta saga, les recomiendo leerla "Crónicas de Kane".

Wow, I can't believe the second book is already coming out! The first one was OK. I liked The Lost Hero, the first of the Hero's of Olympus series better. I really hope this book is good, better than The Red Pyramid. The cover art looks nice, and the title seems cool. HOPEFULLY this book is worth the wait, but I don't want to get overly excited since The Red Pyramid wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. I will totally still read it though! I hope the like this one, and I also can't wait for The ...more

I just don't like the Kane Chronicles books as much as I like the Camp Halfblood books. There are plenty of reasons, and the fact that I don't like Egyptian mythology nearly as much as Greek mythology probably has a lot to do with it. I don't know as much about what Riordan is playing with, so I can't fully appreciate it. And I'm just not as invested in, say, Bast as I am in Apollo. That said, I was astounded with how much I ended up liking Best. It took awhile for him to grow on me, but by the ...more

“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?"
"Brobably.”
