The Throne of Fire (Kane Chronicles #2) by Rick Riordan
Release Date: 5/3/11
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Throne of Fire picks up shortly after Red Pyramid ended. Carter and Sadie Kane have discovered that Apophis, the God of Chaos, is very close to breaking out of his prison. That prison will be at it's weakest on the Spring Equinox which is only 4 days away. Carter and Sadie think the only way to save the world as they know it is to awaken Ra...which no one has seen in thousands of years. The other Egyptian Gods don't think Ra is the way to go.
This was pretty standard Rick Riordan fare. Nothing terribly new or exciting. I do enjoy seeing what Gods Riordan will include and how and where they take the story. Riordan does do an incredible amount of research for his books. They are a pretty fun ride.
