This book is a lot of fun to read, but it honestly was my least favorite of the Kane Chronicles books (I vaguely remember not finishing it when it was first published). One major thing that I found annoying was Sadie herself. She was so boy crazy I felt like that was the only thing that drove her character through this book. She was also not a very likable character in that she was selfish and almost never saw any fault in herself. I also was a bit upset at how Zia and Carter were pushed together in a relationship (I honestly wished they had ended as just friends). I loved the mythology, but I felt that this was such a far jump from the Percy Jackson series in terms of how well it was written. However, if you can get past all of the relationship drama that happens in this book, it is an okay read. ( )

So great, I'm often shouting at the book. ( )

In general I love the books of Rick Riordan but for me The Kane Chronicles were just okay. I think the story was great and it was really well written and I liked learning about Ancient Egyptian mythology but the main characters annoyed me. The characters bugged me so much it took away from the story. ( )

Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sadie Kane still haven't put a final stop to Apophis and his quest to bring darkness to the world. On top of that, the leadership of the House of Life has turned against them and see them and everyone else in Brooklyn House as the enemy. It would definitely be an understatement to say they must prepare to face their biggest challenges yet. To overcome it, they plan to seek out an ancient spell that will allow them to defeat Apophis, but tracking it down won't be easy. There's a reason the magic has been lost to the ages and Apophis isn't going to let them dig it back up with any sort of ease. Their Brooklyn House allies are behind them, but with multiple forces moving against them, the question of what they might be able to achieve is certainly an open-ended one...

Rick Riordan's skill for creating these worlds that are so neatly spun together with mythology never ceases to impress and amaze me. He tells original stories in vibrant worlds, drawing just the right amount of inspiration and information from the stories of the past without relying on them to the point that we just get a retelling of the mythical legends of old. Carter and Sadie have such strong character voices--particularly important when you tell something from a first person perspective.

Honestly, I was really only disappointed that this ended. I would have loved to have spent more time with these characters if there was room to do so. ( )

A solid ending to the series. Once again the world will end in n days and it's up to Sadie and Carter to save that day.

Really, it feels like the second half of The Throne of Fire. We have the same support characters, the same big bad, the same magic, and it doesn't feel like that terribly much time has passed. Honestly, it's not a bad thing; it's just a little bit weird.

One thing I did like is that the climactic battle did actually feel big. It was a bit rushed, but it was nice to see everything coming together in a bunch of ways. The afterwards with the gods withdrawing was odd, but made sense. There there was a paragraph or two dedicated to setting the stage for a potential Percy Jackson crossover. I mentioned in a previous review: it's neat to think about, but I'm not sure how well it could be done.

So far as downsides, really the same as the previous two books. The meta story of being a transcription of an audio recording is weird. I sometimes couldn't tell which sibling I was reading. But it felt a little less bad this time around. Perhaps I just got used to it?

As I've said before: the series isn't quite as good as either the Greek or Roman series, but stand alone it's still certainly enjoyable. I'm glad I read them. ( )
