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. ( )

Great book, just like all of the author's other books. ( )

This was a really good book! This series is very interesting, and very fast-paced and enjoyable. I'm really enjoying reading it. I really like how Riordan can go from silly stuff to serious, even sad and depressing stuff in tone - it's the kind of book where you're not REALLY sure that everything's going to turn out right in the end. And from reading some of his other books (The Percy Jackson series), it's obvious that he's not afraid to make things sad sometimes. I hope this series ends well! Can't wait to read the next book.

Enjoyed the format and characters. Love the author's additional input as a researcher. Cool concept. ( )

Fast-paced and funny, but also unexpectedly moving. An undercurrent of loss seems to run through the Kane Chronicles, and this one is no exception, as Carter and Sadie continue to deal with their parents' deaths and various threats to the bodies and minds of themselves, their loved ones and the gods. Fortunately Riordan does a very good job of balancing somber scenes (particularly the ones in the home for forgotten and forgetting gods) with lighter moments of the main characters joking, getting caught up in boy/girl trouble, and squabbling with each other as only siblings can do. Really hoping the third and final book provides a fitting end to the series ... or that there are more after it! ( )

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."
Haiku summary
