Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister Sadie have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven’t given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet—the chaos snake Apophis—is rising. If they don’t prevent him from breaking free in a few days’ time, the world will come to an end. In other words, it’s a typical week for the Kane family. To have any chance of battling the Forces of Chaos, the Kanes must revive the sun god Ra. But that would be a feat more powerful than any magician has ever accomplished. First they have to search the world for the three sections of the Book of Ra, then they have to learn how to chant its spells. Oh, and did we mention that no one knows where Ra is exactly? Narrated in two different wisecracking voices, featuring a large cast of new and unforgettable characters, and with adventures spanning the globe, this second installment in the Kane Chronicles is nothing short of a thrill ride.

      I like this book because of how interesting Rick Riordian makes it. He adds a lot of twists and unexpected turns.

              It was pretty good. I liked that it was written in first person. Also, I kind of thought it was funny how Riordon wrote it; a brother and sister always arguing. I think I would recommend it.

                      This Book is amazing and I couldn't stop reading it. I recommend the first book (the red pyramid) then this book . It talks about 2 children who are trying to stop Apophis (an Egyptian god) from escaping from its prison and swallowing the sun
