The Kane Chronicles- Book 2 Cover and Title Announcement Plus a Sneak Peek at the First Chapter

On Thursday Rick Riordan released the cover art, title and first chapter of the Kane Chronicles, book 2.
Drum roll please......

The Throne of Fire, releasing May 3rd, 2011 will follow Sadie and Carter as they Continue to try and save the world, while fighting with and against Egyptian Gods.  The sneak peak of the first chapter, which was supposedly supposed to only be up for 24 hours is still viewable. 
It's fun, and it looks like The Throne of Fire is going to introduce a bunch of new characters which is always enjoyable.  Of course if you didn't enjoy the narration of the first book then be advised it's continuing in the same vein.

More exciting news on Myth and Mystery, is Rick's latest run down of his fave reads, which included Boneshaker!  How coincidental that we both read it around the same time period!  He loved it as well, which after you read my review tomorrow should send you running out to the store to join in on the fun.  For more of his picks check out his blog post
I love nothing better than when authors blog on the great books they've read and I now can't wait to pick up Blood of Ambrose by James Enge, and A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz.


  1. Fun to read and easy to understand the Throne of Fire gives the adventure and story of magic and escape from the fury of things unseen to the real world. The Trilogy is expected next Spring and will be a must read.

  2. Glad to hear this is a good one. I thought Percy Jackson was an excellent series. Rick is obviously a master at the myth rendition. Thanks for the review!
