5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Book! Feb. 28 2013
Format:Paperback
I think The Throne of Fire is great. It’s a magical story about an older brother named Carter Kane and a sister named Sadie Kane. In The Throne Fire Apophis is rising with the help of Vlad Menshikov and demons! Sadie and Carter live in Brooklyn House with their new recruits Walt, Julian, Alyssa, Felix, Jaz, Cleo, and Sean. Why this book is so great is because there is action and suspense. Also it is sometimes funny. I also recommend Rick Riordan’s other books, like The Labyrinth and The Lost Hero.

4.0 out of 5 stars The books of Ra May 5 2011
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
If there was a problem with "The Red Pyramid," it's that too much of the action took place in dreams and visions. Fortunately Rick Riordan scales back on that in "The Kane Chronicles, Book Two: The Throne of Fire," a tighter, more action-packed adventure tale filled with cinematic monsters, mythological battles and an impending apocalypse. Fun stuff!

Things seem to be going fairly smoothly for the Kane siblings, despite a disastrous mission to capture one-third of the Book of Ra. Unfortunately, Carter and Sadie soon learn that not only has the House of Life sent its third-most-powerful magician (known as "Vlad the Inhaler") to destroy them, but that the god Apophis has almost escaped from his prison.

Unfortunately, the only god who can possibly stop Apophis is Ra, and the only way to summon Ra from his eternal sleep is to use the Book. Soon the Kanes are on a perilous quest across the world, running up against evil gods (and an endearing taxi-driving one), demons and treacherous magicians. But the price of victory may be a steep one...

"The Throne of Fire" is a somewhat steadier adventure than "The Red Pyramid." It's still not quite as instantly engaging as Riordan's Grecian-inspired fantasies, but it's still action-packed, sleek and full of flashy action sequences. I mean, a basketball game is interrupted by a giant three-headed serpent -- does it get cooler than that?

Riordan's prose is solidly descriptive, and he does an excellent job melding ancient Egyptian myth with modern-day sensibilities. His dialogue is solidly snarky -- at one point, the dwarf god Bes announces that, "I'm not going to call myself the god of vertically challenged people.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy follow-up for the first book! May 28 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Red Pyramid was so good, I couldn't wait for this one to come out. I wasn't disappointed! I am delighted that these stories are so well done, yet are at a level that those strong students in grade 3 and 4 can handle them. What an accomplishment for a younger student to polish off a book that is nearly three inches thick!
