Finally, I have completed another book. I took the opportunity while traveling to catch up on some reading. Better yet, I was able to do this while testing out my Kindle.
The book I just finished is “Throne of Fire” by Rick Riordan. This is the second book in the Kane Chronicles series and is very similar to the popular series about Percy Jackson (by the same author).
Sadly, some of my dislikes about the Percy Jackson books are present in this series as well. I can get past some of that because the story is good (grammar and spelling mistakes throughout).
The two Kanes (Carter and Sadie) embark in this book to awaken the sleeping crazy Zeus. The meet new friends and new challenges. There are bumps and twists throughout the book. And the one thing that kinda bugs me is that the climax is at the end of the book – creating a cliffhanger. Now I am stuck waiting for the next book to be published – arghhh.
I liked the story. I thought it was entertaining. I would certainly let me children read the book. It is a nice adventure and a good escape from the daily stresses.
Check it out sometime.
