Rick Riordan’s “Throne of Fire” is a pretty good book, it’s full of action and adventure and the two main characters see humor in almost everything. The main thing I like about this book is the way he fused the modern world with this ancient Egyptian culture.
In the book, the two main characters, Sadie and Carter Kane, need to find a way to save the world from the evil snake of chaos, Apophis. To do this they must find and awaken the king of the gods, Ra, but it’s pretty hard to wake him up if you don’t know where he is! Fortunately one of the friendlier gods, Horus tells them what they need to do, which is retrieving the three magic scrolls of Ra and restoring him as pharaoh of the gods. They won’t be able to do this alone so a friend of theirs calls on the god of dwarves, Bes to help and guide them.
The Throne of Fire is pretty fun to read!
This book is more aimed towards entertainment than educating but there are still some cool facts throughout the book.
