    1. (B) 75% | More than SatisfactoryNotes: To work well, magical problem solving needs precedent. When 'anything goes' there's no tension. It's deus ex machina.

    2. Me encanta la relación que tienen los Kane, nuevamente Rick abordando la mitología desde un punto de vista moderno, juvenil y divertido. Todo el viaje de los Kane para despertar a Ra y evitar que Apofis se libere y el caos consuma el mundo es maravilloso, inquietante, trepidante y lleno de aventuras imposibles de superar.Espero leer pronto el tercer libro y cerrar esta saga

    3. Read on the 16th of May 2011This book was wonderful. I’m always entranced by Rick Riordan’s work. I adored Percy Jackson, and I always will, but I think it’s possible that if this series continues to way it is, I may end up liking it more. Both books in this series have been brilliant and Riordan knows exactly what he’s doing. One of the things I love about Riordan’s writing is how he adds in little sentences that let you know something crazy is going to happen like,“It started when [...]

    5. 3.5/5 starsThis was so fun! I love Carter and Sadie as characters and narrators, they're so sassy and fun and the best. However, the story and the conflict just hasn't been grabbing my attention. It's fun but not amazing? Would still recommend for fans of Riordan. It's not as good as his other stuff but it's still super fun!

    6. If I can say nothing else about Rick Riordan (RR) I will say he is without a doubt an entertaining storyteller no matter what age you are. While his Percy Jackson series are still my favorites I enjoyed this book more than The Red Pyramid.The best thing about this book is that there are more kids. It just makes for a little more humor when you have kids interacting with other kids instead of adults. Now that Sadie and Carter are helping to train some new kids at Brooklyn house there is rooms for [...]

    7. Reading dozens of books after this, I may have forgotten most of the events I read in this book but I do recall how much I enjoyed reading this sequel to The Red Pyramid. :)

    8. okay, 2 stars rate has never happened with Rick Riordan's works, until now. I found The Throne of Fire is really well written with some great twist but this book is so, unoriginal. Let's see The world is at the end.Check. Two kids are their savior. Check. Mob of monster and obstacles. Check. The way they saved the world was predictable. I can even guess that when they gambled with Khonsu. And one more thing, the main charactors were Sadie AND Carter, not just Sadie. I felt like everything was sp [...]

    9. Nuevamente Rick Riordan me sorprende con uno de sus libros, Sadie y Kane siguen sus aventuras mientras tratan de salvar al mundo de su destrucción. No diré más porque no quiero spoilearlos, pero si aún no leen esta saga, les recomiendo leerla "Crónicas de Kane".

    10. Wow, I can't believe the second book is already coming out! The first one was OK. I liked The Lost Hero, the first of the Hero's of Olympus series better. I really hope this book is good, better than The Red Pyramid. The cover art looks nice, and the title seems cool. HOPEFULLY this book is worth the wait, but I don't want to get overly excited since The Red Pyramid wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. I will totally still read it though! I hope the like this one, and I also can't wait for The [...]

    11. I just don't like the Kane Chronicles books as much as I like the Camp Halfblood books. There are plenty of reasons, and the fact that I don't like Egyptian mythology nearly as much as Greek mythology probably has a lot to do with it. I don't know as much about what Riordan is playing with, so I can't fully appreciate it. And I'm just not as invested in, say, Bast as I am in Apollo. That said, I was astounded with how much I ended up liking Best. It took awhile for him to grow on me, but by the [...]

    12. ถ้าเปรียบเทียบเล่มที่แล้วเป็นระเบิดซีโฟร์ เล่มนี้ก็เป็นเพียงประทัดพวงเล็กๆ ส่งเสียงเป๊าะแป๊ะตลอดทั้งเล่ม คือไม่ใช่ว่าเนื้อเรื่องมันไม่ดีนะ แต่เรารู้สึกว่ามันดรอปลงจากเล่ [...]

    13. Enough is enough. The kids are alternatively characterless or annoying. They make stupid decision after stupid decision, and then when things look hopeless, they get bailed out by another Egyptian god who appears out of nowhere. Then, after they have been bailed out and rescued, again and again, everyone bows down to these two idiots for the wonderful things that they've done.Here, once again Riordan's hero kids are faced with the end of the world coming in five days. So what does the girl do? S [...]

    14. Waaaaaay better than the 1st book!I advice everyone to start reading this series, It's confusing sometimes, the Egyptian Mythology, but we can't deny a few aspects of it the hieroglyphics, which mostly contain a human with an animal headThe Pyramids and the Sphinxanyhow, it's an interesting myth!

    15. This book doesn't really deserve a full four stars, but because I'm such a lenient reviewer nice guy I'll stick with this rating.I do have a reason for giving The Throne of Fire four stars, though my personal reading experience warrants a three or 3.5. It's because this book is just so good for a certain type of reader, the type that would much rather be playing Xbox or watching mind-numbing television. I'm sure you know who I'm talking about. They're referred to as "reluctant readers", but I li [...]

    16. Another 3.5 Compared to "The Red Pyramid", this installment was better in some ways and worse in others. As far as character development is concerned, Riordan did a better job with the Kane siblings this time. It was interesting to see the older brother-younger sister dynamic between Carter and Sadie as they struggled with the dramatic changes in their lives and tried to save the world at the same time. In terms of story, I found "The Red Pyramid" more memorable and stronger as an individual boo [...]

    17. El año pasado fue cuando por fin pude darme la oportunidad de leer a este autor con los dos primero libros de dos de sus sagas, ahora he decidido terminarlas y comenzar a cerrar ciclos con esta trilogía primero, si bien la primera parte me gustó mucho por la manera en que nos introduce a la mitología egipcia combinándolo con una grana ventura en tiempos modernos y sobre todo nos la enseña de manera divertida y dinámica, lo cual anteriormente mencione, porque tiene una gran habilidad este [...]

    18. The Throne of Fire is the second book in The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan, which tells of the adventures of modern day fourteen-year-old Carter Kane and his thirteen-year-old sister Sadie Kane, as they discover that they are descended from the ancient Egyptian pharaohs Narmer and Ramesses the Great. To be honest, I enjoyed this book more than its predecessor, The Red Pyramid. And I just enjoyed the story more and the humor. But unfortunately, its still not as good as the Percy Jackson and the [...]

    19. I enjoyed this one a bit better than the first book. This is another series I feel like I would enjoy a lot more if I were younger, akin to the Ascendance trilogy. It's still a fun ride though :)

    20. Note: This book is the second of the Kane Chronicles, following The Red Pyramid. If you have not yet read the first, there will be spoilers below.In The Red Pyramid, siblings Carter and Sadie Kane couldn’t be much more different. Carter, raised by their American father, has traveled the world, dresses like a junior executive, and has been extensively schooled in his father’s subject of interest: Egypt, specifically its mythology and history. Sadie, younger by two years, has been raised in Lo [...]

    21. I just gotta warn you, I'm gonna sound super pissed off in this review. But I didn't dislike this book! I was just extremely disappointed, and was so caught off guard by it that it made me annoyed. First of all, the romance between Walt and Sadie. (And Carter and Zia, but I'll discuss that in a minute). What's with the romance in this book? It's so irritating because it distracts from the plot AND its instalove. No. Just no. And then there's a semi-love triangle between Anubis and Sadie and Walt [...]

    22. Felix believed that the answer to every problem involved penguins; but it wasn’t fair to the birds, and I was getting tired of teleporting them back home. Somewhere in Antarctica, a whole flock of Magellanic penguins was undergoing psychotherapy.After the red pyramid incident, Carter and Sadie continue to defy the House of Life by teaching the old way. They now run the Brooklyn House and got some trainees (including the nine year old Felix who’s addicted to penguins. I somehow found him real [...]

    23. First line: "Carter here."I could not finish this. It was just so bad. Rick Riordan is fundamentally not a very good writer. I knew this from the Percy Jackson books. I still (mostly) liked the Percys because I like Greek mythology, and the way it was being reimagined was interesting and amusing. Popcorn books.I have two major problems with this book—well, setting aside all the problems with lousy prose and stereotypes and gimmickry that were also in the Percys.1. I don't know Egyptian mytholo [...]

    24. Rick Riordan does a great job telling this story. I couldn't give it a higher rating for one reason. Before I get to that reason, let me just say that I found myself getting lost in the story; then I would be reminded of my irritation and would have to work hard to get my brain focused on the story again.My big problem is with Sadie’s age; it became a huge distraction for me. I honestly feel that her age takes away from the integrity of the story line. She has just turned 13 years old. In addi [...]

    25. 4.5Rick Riordan es un genio. Yo lo amo. Todos sus libros me hacen sentir de todo. Me llevan a otro mundo y me hacen la persona más feliz. Este libro no fue una excepción.Desde el principio que este libro me enganchó completamente y desde ese momento no pude parar. De hecho, me lo leí como en un día y medio y no en menos solo porque estoy en Estados Unidos y es mi obligación como turista salir y turistear Eso sí, a diferencia del primer libro este no me mantuvo taaaaaaan emocionada. O sea, [...]

    26. This was definitely better than the first one! I'm knocking off a star purely because a) I still can't get past the parallels between this and the Percy Jackson series, and b) the love triangle is ridiculous. You expect me to believe those two cool guys are fighting overSadie!?

    27. How many different scenarios can one man create in which the world is about to end? [No, Bog, I'm the one typing. Get away from the keyboard.] All you have to do is read Rick Riordan's books to find out. In the Throne of Fire, the world is about to end. Again. [Gasp. Sorry, Bog just poked me in the ribs.]Riordan's prose is generally quite tight, and well written. [Thank you, Bog, I would like a drink.] But, he chose to use the same ridiculous [Yes, Bog, I could have used a stronger word here, bu [...]
