Présentation de l'éditeur

EVER since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed on the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister, Sadie, have been in big trouble.

As descendants of the magical House of Life, they command certain powers. But now a terrifying enemy - Apophis, the giant snake of chaos - is rising.

If Carter and Sadie don't destroy him, the world will end in five days' time. And in order to battle the forces of chaos, they must revive the sun god Ra - a feat no magician has ever achieved. Because first they must search the world for the three sections of the Book of Ra, then they have to learn how to chant its spells . . .

Can the Kanes destroy Apophis before he swallows the sun and plunges the earth into darkness . . . forever?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Bit More Challenging than Percy Jackson, But Extraordinary in the Opportunities it Presents 8 mai 2011
Par L. Gildart - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié

Young fans of the Percy Jackson series may find themselves a bit slower to warm up to this one. Not impossible, mind you, and I think all of them will still thoroughly enjoy these books. However, I noticed that my ten-year-old was taking longer to read this one, just as he had with book one, The Red Pyramid.

I think the reason for this is not that the books are less well-written, or the characters less well-drawn. These books are every bit as exciting and character-driven as their predecessors. However, they are a bit more densely-packed with unfamiliar information. Geographically, they range much farther than the Percy Jackson series does. Percy's quests take place in the United States. If my son had a question about a location, he usually didn't have to go farther than asking me in order to get more information. Additionally, the mythology itself was more accessible to him (and me). I can't think of any Disney cartoons off the top of my head that deal with Egyptian gods.

Once he realized during the first book that this was slowing him down, he took to reading it near the computer. We bought this book on Kindle, in order to have immediate access to helpful websites, and, suddenly, this is more like his own quest than just a book. He's learning, and he's loving it.

This book, like the last is told from the points of view of dual protagonists: Carter Kane and Sadie Kane. For kids, this may be a bit daunting, as the switch back and forth involves two distinctly drawn characters with different voices. I like it, because my son, who normally shies away from books with female protagonists, is absolutely willing to read this. Thank you, Rick Riordan, for doing something about the bias in kidlit and helping our next generation to learn how to see things from different points of view.

The book contains just enough exposition to get you through it if you haven't read the first (for example, if your child gets this as a gift, you won't have to run straight out and buy the first book before he or she reads this one; however, your child probably will want to read the first book at some point).

Themes you may want to discuss with your child upon reading:

Empire - the concept of empire plays huge in this series, perhaps even more than it did in the Percy Jackson series. This makes the books both relevant and relatable to current events, if you want to bring them up with your child. There's nothing heavy-handed, though, or preachy or judgmental or especially patriotic, so if you prefer to avoid the topic, you won't be asked any questions you prefer not to answer.

Family - The Percy Jackson series was replete with absentee father issues. The Kane chronicles begin with the loss of a father by two kids who had already lost their mother. To make matters worse, the siblings have been separated for years and they do not resemble each other at all. The books so far have dealt deftly with the kids' discoveries of common ground and likenesses, despite their early separation, and the concepts of love and family are never far beneath the surface.

Chaos versus Order - this is the nature of the struggle, and the book doesn't present the choice as an easy one.

I'm still reading most of what my son reads, and I enjoyed this one as much as he did. I'm looking forward to the next installment, and so is he.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Sequal, Better Than the First 19 juillet 2011
Par Gavin Reviews - Publié sur

The battle against Chaos continues, and Apophis is very close to rising. The only way to stop him is to awaken Ra. Problem is, no one even knows where Ra is. And to awaken him, they need the three scrolls of the Book of Ra which are unreadable. Sadie and Carter Kane are not alone, though. They now have the assistance of their new trainees and a few of gods.

To add to all the confusion, Carter has found some information leading to Zia's possible location. In this fresh, intense, and humorous race, it is all about the Throne of Fire.

I liked this book even more than the first in the series. It is in many ways, similar. A race to save the world in just a few days, with several battles and bits of humor along the way. This tends to be the pattern in Riordan's mythology books. The difference in this book is that it has a theme of identity. None of his other mythology books seem to as clearly have a theme. A great sequel. I liked how it went further into Egyptian mythology. Very excited for the next, and final book in the Kane Chronicles!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Action/Adventure PACKED 14 mai 2011

The world will end soon so who you gonna call? Sadie and Carter Kane, of course. When we last "heard" from the Kane siblings they had just defeated Set and saved the world, so they shouldn't have any trouble doing it again, right? Sadie and Carter now have trainees and are teaching them magic that in the magician world is illegal. They are preparing them for the fight of their life. When they find out that Apophis is rising from his prison they set off to stop him.

Their mission takes them to many interesting (and creepy) places; they meet many new gods, like the dwarf god Bes. And basically put themselves into peril time after time. Well, they are the Kane's, aren't they? The sundial is counting down the hours until the spring equinox a.k.a Aphophis's jail break. And in order to stop him they must find and restore a very old god who is in retirement and is pretty darn elusive.

Will Carter and Sadie with the help of their friends be able to save the world....again?

Throne of Fire was an action and adventure packed book! It was very interesting to learn about the Egyptian gods and their mythology. There were never any moments when the reader felt like they were reading a text book about the gods and their backgrounds. Riordan effortlessly wove learning and fiction seamlessly into one. In the previous book, The Red Pyramid, I thought Carter to be pretty bland and bit personality-less (the complete opposite of his sister, Sadie, who is chock full of personality- practically bursting at the seams), but Riordan did a good job with Carter's voice in this book. There were only a couple of times I was reading a chapter and didn't know which character was narrating.

It was a thrilling roller coaster ride peering into the perilous and hectic lives of Carter and Sadie Kane. I can't wait for the third and final installment of the Kane Chronicles coming out in the spring of 2012!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 **Apophis Rising** 8 mai 2011
Par David Wolf - Publié sur

There is something appealing about all of the books I have read by Rick Riordan. Whether you are a child or an adult, he always manages to communicate with all audiences. He develops his characters, and makes you care for them.

I confess I do not enjoy the Egyptian mythology series, The Kane Chronicles, AS MUCH as the Greek mythology series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, or the other new Greco-Roman mythology series, The Heroes of Olympus. However, I do enjoy all of these, and I think they are excellent for all ages. He is enriching our interest in ancient mythologies, and making us look at all mythologies in a humorous way.

This second book of The Kane Chronicles is a little darker than the first book, but there are still plenty of hilarious moments, some comic relief I found timely. New characters are introduced, and we are brought in contact with previous characters, some of which we were not sure we would see in this installment. The new characters span a continuum from good to evil, and bring elements of comedy and tragedy.

I will not give the details of the story, but if you have read the first novel, you already know Apophis, the deification of chaos and evil, is rising in this novel. You may already know, also, that a particular god must be woken if Apophis is to be properly opposed and the balance preserved between Chaos and Ma'at.

This book is highly recommended for anyone with a sense of humor that also has interest in ancient cultures and myth.
