In other words, it’s a typical week for the Kane family. To have any chance of battling the Forces of Chaos, the Kanes must revive the sun god Ra. But that would be a feat more powerful than any magician has ever accomplished. First they have to search the world for the three sections of the Book of Ra, then they have to learn how to chant its spells. Oh, and did we mention that no one knows where Ra is exactly?
Narrated in two different wisecracking voices, featuring a large cast of new and unforgettable characters, and with adventures spanning the globe, this second installment in the Kane Chronicles is nothing short of a thrill ride.

Rick is masterful with history and incrporation.
If you can get your kids to read these books then you are doing them a favor. These books are just plain fun but they also have many hidden treasures. The books have legends and history and ancient tales for them to read and maybe even remember. These are lessons that may creep up in school. These books have some fun mixed with knowledge. I cannot think of a better thing for a kid than to read for fun and accidentally learn something. The 30 Clues series is the same. Many historical and geographic facts mixed with a fun story.

Throne of Fire doesn't dissapoint!
If you could sum up The Throne of Fire in three words, what would they be?
Fun, humorous, entertaining
Who was your favorite character and why?
Sadie Kane is my favorite character because of the way Rick Riordan has given her a great sense of humor as she goes through teen angst, the pains of becoming a magician, and some incredible adventures.
What does Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
They infuse both main characters with a living, breathing personality that is both believable and accessible to the reader/ listener. And every other character comes to life as well!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
...laugh mostly, cry a couple of times.
Any additional comments?
Love this whole series. It's not just a "kids" book. I love the Egpytian mythology facts as Riordan weaves them seamlessly into the story. I love that he has created a REAL muticultural family. Just a great time!
