Read the First Chapter of THE THRONE OF FIRE (Kane Chronicles 2)
Good news for those of you anxiously awaiting the second book in Rick Riordan’s Kane Chronicles series—Riordan recently announced on his blog that the next book will be called The Throne of Fire. You can read the first chapter of the book here.
Along with the title and the first chapter, we’re also getting our first look at the cover of The Throne of Fire. Riordan says on his blog, “John Rocco’s cover above may give you some hint about Carter and Sadie’s adventures.” So what hints are there? First, we can see Sadie and Carter on the bow of an Egyptian sailing vessel (maybe the same ship they rode in the first book?), with Sadit holding a scroll or scepter of some kind. Behind them we see the Throne of Fire, which looks interesting and a little scary. Just below the throne there looks to be a large box covered with hieroglyphs–I wonder whats in it? The last detail we can get is that the ship is crashing down on a wave (or maybe the crest of a sand dune?) with a bunch of scary looking scarabs climbing towards them.
The official synopsis of The Throne of Fire says:
In this exciting second installment of the three-book series, Carter and Sadie, offspring of the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane, embark on a worldwide search for the Book of Ra, but the House of Life and the gods of chaos are determined to stop them.
The Throne of Fire will be released on May 3, 2011.
