So right now I’m reading the 2nd Kane Chronicles. It’s called The Throne of Fire. It was written by Rick Riordan, one of my favorite authors. It’s set in modern day, but in a world with ancient Egyptian gods and magicians running around!
It’s been great so far, and I’ve nearly finished it. Sooo, the second book’s plot seriously gives away spoilers for the first book, so I’m gonna keep this sparce. Pretty much siblings, Carter and Sadie Kane, once again have to save the world. Haha, no spoilers for you!
I chose this book because Rick Riordan is one of my favorite authors. I have always loved mythology, and have memorized Greek, Egyptian, Roman, and a bit of Norse. Rick Riordan writes mythological stories in modern day settings with (not so) normal kids.
I think Rick Riordan is a very good author as well. I, personally, don’t think that the Percy Jackson series is the best example of his writing. Don’t kill me, wait for the explanation! I love the Percy Jackson series, it’s the book that got me into reading. But It’s aiming for a younger audience, with less complicated words, and not as many moral dillemas. I think Kane Chronicles, Heroes of Olympus, Magnus Chase, and the Apollo series all have a lot of improvement.
Anyway, so far Throne of Fire has been awesome, and I definitely recommend you read it. (And all of Rick Riordan’s other books, like me!)
