Book Talk: The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan (Kane Chronicles 2)

Hey guys!
It’s time for my review on The Throne of Fire, second installment of Rick Riordan’s Kane Chronicles trilogy. Let’s see whether it can keep up with the amazing first part!

The Plot:
Sadie and Carter have been through a lot, but their ordeal is far from over. Apophis, the chaos snake, is rising. The only way to prevent the end of the world is to find the Ra, the sun god and restore his powers. But first they need to get the three sections of the book of Ra. Did I mention that both the book and the God have been missing for ages?

 

The Rating:
I’m a sucker for everything Rick Riordan and this series is no exception. It took me a while to get started but once I had picked the books up, it was impossible to stop. After hell of a ride with the first part, I was very excited to dive into The Throne of Fire.
One of the things I enjoyed so much about it is the way the story is told. The book is meant to be a transcript of some audio recordings Sadie and Carter did. So first of all, we get two different voices and perspectives which makes for nice changes (and funny moments) throughout the novel. It also feels more real, being told from those “having witnessed it first hand”. This really distinguishes the whole Kane Chronicles series from the rest of Riordan’s books. Otherwise it might have been lost among the rest of his works but instead it pops out.
Moreover, the story will get to you. I have no idea how Riordan manages to come up with all this stuff but there are many heartbreaking moments trapped within the pages. Thankfully he is also very talented in mixing the end of the world with some fun, so for every tear you’ll shed, you’ll also get to laugh out loud.
In The Throne of Fire we also get to meet some new characters who will grow dear to you. So let’s hope for the best while expecting the worst.
After part 2 had so much to offer, I’m sure #3 will also be brilliant. So stay tuned for the final review on the Kane Chronicles!

Another amazing book by one of the most talented YA writers out there. Riordan always manages to surprise me, break my heart and make me smile with just one novel. The Throne of Fire is no exception!
