It's a rarity when you can say that the book was better than its predecessor! Wonderfully thrilling story. The blend of Egyptian history with a healthy dose of mystery made it a true page turner. Keeps you guessing at every turn. Absolutely recommend it as a must read!!

Once again Rick Riordan creates a thrilling masterpiece. Sadie and Carter go on another adventure to help save the world from spiralling into absolute chaos. Both Carter and Sadie's chapters were interesting to read about because Sadie had to deal with a confusing love trianlge! Carter also had some love issues too, along with all the danger they both went through. There are Grandmas that our possessed by a vulture god and grandpas possessed by baboon gods. All in all the romance the action and the suspense makes this book one you can't bring yourself to put down.

Okay so the second book titled the Throne of Fire really held up to my expectations and at times didn't. But, don't get me wrong! The writing of Riordan is fantastic and alluring to anyone who has read Riordans books. I'm greatly entertained with the stories Riordan has written. The second books starts off where Carter, Sadie, and two new characters, Jaz and Walt try stealing an artifact. Its starts rapidly going down a familiar road with Sadie and Carter. Butting heads and heated talks but, its entertaining because I remember doing the same thing with my own siblings! A monster is released which surprisingly Carter can some-what control because of his connection to Horus. During the first part of the book you can see how Sadie and Carter developed into the mentors. I really liked that, especially the part where she remembers when Zia was saving Carter and herself from the scorpion queen. At the moment she realizes how much courage it took to battle a god and accepts that responsibility. Even if it further separates her from the world she once knew. Carter i had to work up a grudging respect for him since he went galloping off towards saving Zia. But, in the end I am glad she is found and revived. Other parts of the book were the references towards Manhattan and across the river, "Amos had told us that magicians tried to stay out of Manhattan. He said Manhattan had other problems-- whatever that meant. And sometimes when i looked across the water, I could swear I was seeing thngs. Sadie laughed about it, but once i thought I saw a flying horse." Carter. The quote made me smile and laugh out loud. Oh.. Carter Kane if you only knew... haha Or the other bit in the book, "I wished I had sea god powers, but they weren't exactly Horus's specialty." I found myself thinking.. Should of had Percy Jackson's number. But then i remember he was probably battling his way through the Labryth or being lost in some Roman camp near San Francisco. But, enough of my prattling. If you enjoyed and loved the first book of the Kane Chronicles. I guarantee you will not be disapointed in the Throne of Fire.
