Throne of Fire

The Throne of Fire (Kane Chronicles, #2)The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I have to admit I like the Greek gods best...That being said, this is a fine adventure taken by Sadie and Carter to reawaken Ra to help annhilate Apophis, the god of Chaos and prevent the end of the world. Its mythology can be a little dense sometimes and Sadie's love triangle between a boy who is dying and the god of death, not to mention Carter's obsession with an Egyptian magician, seem a little beyond their 13 and 14 years--but maybe I just don't remember what it's like to be young. I will say that my kids struggled to make it through this book without getting distracted by other books--they said the chapters were too long. Honestly, I think Riordan could have done better by beefing up the mythology, enriching the language alot, adding older heros and marketing it to adults.
