The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Kane Chronicles: The Throne of Fire, read by Joseph May and Jane Collingwood. Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed on the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister, Sadie, have been in big trouble. As descendants of the magical House of Life, they command certain powers. But now a terrifying enemy - Apophis, the giant snake of chaos - is rising. If Carter and Sadie don't destroy him, the world will end in five days' time. And in order to battle the forces of chaos, they must revive the sun god Ra - a feat no magician has ever achieved. Because first they must search the world for the three sections of the Book of Ra, then they have to learn how to chant its spells...
Can the Kanes destroy Apophis before he swallows the sun and plunges the earth into darkness... forever?

I love the switch between male and female voices it keeps the book fresh! The story leaves you wanting to know what happens next. It is a defo read in my view
If you could see my audio library it's about 90% sci-fi and fantasy books ... which probably explains a lot :-)
The second in the series picks up a few months after the first and continues to develop the characters we met in the first, as well as introducing a host new characters including a God of the Dwarfs with a very unusual power :-)
At least one plot twist I was expecting didn't happen so I'm looking forward to listening to the third book now :)
If you enjoyed the first book, this is a sure fire winner.
For teenagers and the older listeners who are still young at heart.
The throne of fire is I really good book
I really like it that there are two people speaking
I think that you should listen to THE THRONE OF FIRE
"9 & 11 yr old totally mesmerized"
Kids loved how it was narrated, they are studying Egyptology now and loving the research!!!
Creative, exciting, funny
As the previous one, i everthing.
They managed to convey the characters' emotions - fear, anger, joy, anxiety, irritation
