WAITING 2 READ- April 2011

Okay, so in this month's edition of WAITING 2 READ I gush about The Throne of Fire, book two in the best-selling Kane Chronicles by one of my favorite authors, Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series among others. This book looks really good, I already read chapter one [they have it posted on the Kane Chronicles website] so after reading that I pre-ordered it from Amazon. So I guess you're all tired of hearing me say how great this book is going to be, I'll just start telling you about the actual book:
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.
Okay so you're probably really exited and can't wait for this to come out. So how long do we have to wait for it? It comes out May 3rd; so just over a month. But it will be worth the wait [I hope]!
