Waiting on Wednesday: The Throne of Fire

This is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this post I talk about books yet to be released that I'm excited about OR already published book's I've seen that I'm really wanting to read. I also like to try and find books other bloggers aren't sharing so that more books are shared.

This week I'm waiting on:

The Throne of Fire (Kane Chronicles #2)
by Rick Riordan
Release Date: May 2011

Why I'm Waiting
My children and I just finished listening to The Red Pyramid, and we loved it. We are all excited to see where Sade and Carter go next.  I believe we'll be listening to that one as well!

From Goodreads
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? 


  1. I put in an order with just five copies of this, nothing else, so it wouldn't be back ordered. Now, if it just gets in before the school year ends...

  2. The first one great so I'm looking forward to this one too!

  3. I have one Rick Riordan book, but I haven't read it yet. I have to get to it! Nice choice. Different!

  4. You'll have to let us know what you think.

  5. I'm so behind in Rick's books! I have the first three in his Olympian series. But I must admit I do adore all of his covers, this one doesn't let me down either!

  6. I'm looking forward to this one as well! Lovely cover! :)
