The Throne of Fire 
by Rick Riordan 

After reading The Red Pyramid, I could hardly wait for the next book in The Kane Chronicles series to take me on even more thrilling adventures than before. And I wasn’t just not disappointed, I was completely blown away. The stakes are infinitely higher, the enemies are more malicious, and the battles are simply electrifying. Our heros, Carter and Sadie, have grown so much since The Red Pyramid; they’re more mature and clever this time around and they’ve got to be in they want to defeat Apophis, the god of chaos. The best part of reading this, now that we’re all in on the secrets of the Kane family, is that the pacing is much faster without explaining the complicated, yet fascinating, backstory. Riordan gets right to the point with stunning accuracy that only he can deliver. I’ve already pre-ordered the final installment, The Serpent’s Shadow, and I cannot wait to be on the edge of my seat once more.
