The Kane Chronicles: The Throne of Fire

Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed upon 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. Worse still, in order to battle his forces of chaos, they must revive the sun god Ra – a feat no magician has ever accomplished. First they must search the world for the three sections of the Book of Ra. Then they must learn to chant its spells. How will they destroy Apophis before he swallows the sun and plunges Earth into eternal darkness?

Expect myth, magic and mystery in this second stunning Egyptian adventure from the creator of Percy Jackson!

    This book was brilliant! I couldn’t put the book down, I read the whole thing in a day! I can’t wait till the next Kane Chronicles book comes out.

    Oh and Sadie, I know it’s a tough choice but pick the right person.

    And Carter, I hope Zia remembers you properly and you get to have your trip to the mall!
