In this thrilling continuance of The Red Pyramid, the Kane siblings manage to remain the most hardcore and wicked thirteen/fourteen year old characters known to Egyptian fiction. The grueling tasks they undertake, the captivating gods and magicians they meet, and the impenetrable love interests and concepts that this book astoundingly depicts make it worthy to be read and enjoyed by anyone. Riordan is a master at writing impeccable adventures, and The Throne of Fire is no exception. ( )

In Deep Feels For this series.

There was a lot moments in this book where I wanted to just stop, not becuase I wasn't enjoying myself, but becuase I felt like I was being crushed by this unseen force of, well, emotions. I kept seeing, (reading), flags, you know, they're sometimes called death flages. They hint, shouted, and prtty much slapped you, telling you, that this isn't going to be you're trypical rounabout ending.

I was right. (I'm staring to hate that)

Now I don't know what to think, everything seems so uncertain, and Walt, poor Walt. He's a walking death flag

I've noticed that Mr. Riordan likes to off charters, only to bring them back again. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I don't like getting my feels shattered then put back together, only to have them painfully shatter again.

As I said during the Canada VS Russia 2015 Wold Jr game (Canada won BTW >.) “My Feels! My heart hurts! Why then hell is this game so intense, I need a safe word.”

Balls, really, just, balls.

I highly recommend this series. In truth it's Darker then Mr. Riordan’s other series, so it has its own special draw that, makes you angry and happy at the same time.

Take a chance :)

Happy Reading

This is a good book with plenty of adventure and magic. I have read the first book and its a very good series. There is a lot of unexpected things that happen in this book. I think it was awesome that Carter went to go find Zia with Bes but it was kind of a stupid move. They almost got captured. If it wasn't for Sadie, Carter would probably be dead. But other than that mistake I think Carter is a good leader even though he doesn't think so. I felt bad for him when Zia didn't want anything to do with him. He needs to explain everything that happened in The Red Pyramid.

Sadie needs to learn when to listen to Carter. Just because he is you brother doesn't mean you don't listen to him. I like how Sadie falls for Walt but it is kinda sad what's happening to Walt. Because of Sadie falling for Walt she is confused about her feelings for Anubis. Also the book should have had Bast in it more. I like Bast she was a very helpful character.

Some books I would recommend is another book in the series called The Red Pyramid. There is another book series called The Third Door. ( )

Carter was awesome. I like that he tries to find Zia, the real Zia. I ship Carter and Zia so hard. What the heck would their couple name be? Carter doesn't really think of himself as a leader, he doesn't seem to know what he's capable of, but he really pulled through and it was awesome.

Sadie has gotten really close to Walt and slowly starts to fall for him, which makes Sadie really confused about her feelings for Anubis, and Walt and Anubis seem to be pretty good friends. This is one of the only love triangles I like.

I like Bes. I didn't expect to like him as much as I did. I was sad about what happened to him at the end. And I like Bast, and I wish we saw a little more of her in the book.

I of course love Walt, Anubis, Zia, and Amos. I love that we saw Carter and Sadie's parents, I liked them.

Ra was kind of weird. When Carter and Sadie found him he acted like a senile old man and not very threatening.

This book was awesome; just as good as the first one. ( )

Book description
Excerpt from the dust jacket: "Ever since the gods of ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister Sadie have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command; but the devious gods haven't given them time to master their skills at Brooklyn House; a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet - the Chaos snake, Apophis - is rising. If they don't prevent him from breaking free in a few days' time, the world will end. In other words, it's a typical week for the Kane family."
