Official cover for The Throne Of Fire
Ok, I just read an amazing sneak peek at Rick Riordan’s latest book.
Kane Chronicles Book 2: The trono Of Fire!
The release fecha is on May 3rd, 2011.
Guess what? I read something in USA Today (and no, I do not live in USA). It says that The Kane Chronicles is a trilogy! I expected it to be like a series!
Here’s the link for the sneak peek: link
Summary: 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 dado 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 más powerful than any magician has ever accomplished. First they have to buscar 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 segundo installment in the Kane Chronicles is nothing short of a thrill ride.
Yeah, sound good right?
Now, I don’t know much about Egyptian mythology (I’m planning to remedy that. I’m already planning to borrow a lot of libros about Egyptian civilizations from the library!), but I know that the Book of Ra is a book... about Ra. But that’s common sense to begin with. I might even be wrong. So I’m going to research about it.
pardo, dun dunun nuuuunn!!!
I have no idea what the Book of Ra is (I didn’t research XD)
The closest thing I could come up with my own knowledge (which isn’t a lot) is The Book of Amun-Ra.
The Book of Amun Ra is one of the most famous history libros out there (yeah right).
The Book of Amun-Ra is a book (duh) made out of pure oro (what is it with Egyptians and gold?!). It contains all the secret incantations of the Old Kingdom (I think this is the kingdom before this pharaoh dude united both Egypts. I might be wrong. Research for yourself. I’m too lazy to) that could take life away from mortals.
To keep it safe, the ancient Egyptians kept the Book inside a statue. Something about a puzzle. I don’t know.
Now that the little artefact lesson is over, let’s talk about the book.
Anyone know what the trono of fuego is?
I keep having the image of a chair on fire.
Who cares about the trono of Fire. I don’t know what that is, and I doubt tu do too (unless tu did what I planned to do, but is too lazy to do).
Let’s talk about Jaz and Walt!
Jaz and Walt are one of the newest characters in the Kane Chronicles. They’re Carter and Sadie’s trainees. They’re the first ones to come to them.
Jaz (short for Jasmine. Don’t call her that unless tu want to get turned into a shrub) specializes in healing magic. Wow, I admire her, but I’m kinda más of a COMBAT MAGIC person. Combat magic, whooo!
She’s a cheerleader from Nashville. End of story.
Walt specializes in charm making. Like, making amulets and stuff. Meh, I don’t really care about amulets.
He’s 14, tall enough to play varsity forward, and muscular. The end.
1) What the Osiris (lol) is The Book of Ra?!
2) What role will Jaz and Walt play?
3) What is the trono of Fire?
4) How does Khufu look in a ninja outfit?
5) How did Carter, Sadie, Jaz, Walt, and Khufu manage to blow up Brooklyn?
6) Will Carter find Zia in this book?
7) How will they get out of their current situation (that being inside a museum, and trying to steal *ahem* borrow an ancient artefact without magicians noticing. Oops, looks like they noticed)?
Er, yeah. I’m not sure what the purpose of this articulo is supposed to be. Not even sure if I’m supposed to be escritura this (I’m grounded). I’m just bored.
PS, I know, this is really crappy.
