This series was good, but I felt as the series progressed it sort of lost itself.
I’ll explain what I mean by this, by briefly giving a review of each book.
The Red Pyramid:
The first, and strongest, book in this series, it delightfully introduces us to a new world with a cast of diverse and interesting character, really, what could go wrong? It had an awesome conclusion and finale.
The Throne of Fire:
I’m not even sure what went wrong here. The first half was fine, I suppose, with even some good scene (like Sadie’s chase scene in London), but towards the end it just got worse and worse. The conclusion just wasn’t gripping, and I felt bored. I feel like the series lost itself in trying to stick to the same formula.
The Serpent’s Shadow:
It was better than the Throne of Fire, but not as strong as the Red Pyramid. It was fine I suppose, but the plot itself was hardly memorable, despite a suitably exciting final battle scene.
I was disappointed with how this series tapered off, especially after such a promising start, but I feel part of the problem was the author himself. Whereas at the beginning he was excited by a new world, moving on from Percy Jackson, the Heroes of Olympus series then started. It honestly felt like Rick was trying to get this series out of the way- it wasn’t commanding his full attention.
I mean its no secret Rick is a bigger fan of Percy Jackson’s world, maybe because that’s where all his fans are. I mean, in Magnus Chase, how many references to PJO and HoO? And how many to the Kane Chronicles?
So yeah, a decent start but an unimpressive, even if not bad, ending. Let’s hope Magnus Chase, seemingly another trilogy, doesn’t suffer the same fate as Trial of Apollo now start as a new five-book series…
In this series, Riordan tells the story of Egypt myth. From this series I got many sources of knowledge about Ancient Egypt mythology such as their civilization, magic, symbols, hieroglyphs (Egypt writing system), and statues. Reading Riordan’s books feel like go back to the ancient history in the myth world. I never get bored with his writing though. Meeting with gods, do the quest, battle with ancient monsters, and saving the world.
The Kane Chronicles is one of the series I found interesting in many Riordan’s book series. It is different from Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus and Magnus Chase. It is different because this story is focus on the magician, using spells and avatar to battle with the enemies and the plot is quite different from the previous series although there is a slight similarity.
The Kane Chronicles in the first book: The Red Pyramid introduces two sibling who named Carter Kane and Sadie Kane. Carter is a boy who always listen to his father, always follow the order while his sister is rebel, sarcastic and in some ways, annoying. Since the death of their mother, they lived separately.
Carter follows his father, Dr. Julius Kane to travel around the world and homeschooled by his father while his sister Sadie, lives in London and together with Gramps and Gran and live a normal life. Sadie and Carter rarely meet each other. And one day, Dr. Julies Kane decided to go back to London to meet his daughter, Sadie and also for important business at the museum.
Dr. Julius Kane works as an archeologist. When in the museum, Dr. Julius Kane tried to summon Gods of Egypt using the Rosetta stone but it did not work out because one of the freed gods, Set, God of evil put him in the sarcophagus. The Journey and Kane siblings started. In the first book, Carter and Sadie journey to find Set and save their father. They are accompanied by cat goddess, Bast and their uncle, Amos.
Sadie and Carter have blood of Pharaoh and make them the strongest magician at the time. Carter also hosting Horus, God of War and his sister, Sadie hosting Isis, Goddess of Magic. Hosting with Gods can make them stronger but also can burn them up if they cannot control the power. In the end of the first book, the siblings successfully defeat Set by using his secret name and banished him in Duat, the magical realm that coexisted with the mortal world but Sadie realized that Set is not their biggest threat. The biggest threat is the God of Chaos, Apophis.
The second book: The Throne of Fire opens with Sadie, Carter and their young initiates, Waltz and Jaz went to the Brooklyn museum to find the section of Book of Ra in order to revive Ra because the siblings realized that to defeat Apophis, the serpent and also God of Chaos, they need Ra, God of the Sun and king of gods in their side.
By this time, Sadie and Carter already make Brooklyn house as their headquarters to train the young magicians who flow the blood of Pharaoh in their veins. In the end of the story, the siblings successfully revive Ra but it is not like what they expected. Ra become old, weak, senile and powerless and Doomsday is getting near.
The third book: The Serpent’s Shadow opens with the siblings and their young initiates, Walt, Alyssa and Felix and their baboon, Khufu went to Dallas Museum to protect the book of Setne which contains the spell to execrate the serpent, Apophis. But they failed and Apophis successfully burned the book.
The siblings realized that the only way to defeat Apophis is to capture his shadow. This is a dangerous risk that the siblings have to take. There is no other choice. The only way to know the whereabouts of the shadow is to cooperate with the psychotic murderous villain magician, Setne.
At first their father disagree with the siblings decision (Now Dr. Julius Kane hosting the God of Underworld, Osiris) because Setne is too dangerous and cannot be trusted but the siblings explained that there is no other way except to accept Setne’s help. So Carter, Zia (the magician girl whom Carter falls in love with) and Setne went to the secret place where Setne hide his precious book while Sadie and Waltz went to get Bes’s (God of dwarf) shadow.
Carter and Zia successfully get the Serpent’s shadow at the Land of Demon but Setne betrayed them. Setne wants to control the serpent so that he can destroy the world as he wants. Thankfully, Sadie came in time to save Carter and Zia. Setne successfully escape from Land of Demon. The old god from Night of Rest and Bes come to Carter and Sadie’s aid when the siblings almost cornered by thousands of demon. Bes took them to the mortal world, Egypt.
The situation in the mortal world is in chaos. The rebel magicians wants to destroy the First Nome and Amos, the siblings’ uncle tried to defend it and Apophis is rising. Finally, Carter convinced the magicians and the gods to work together if they want to destroy Apophis for good. Gods and magicians fight together side by side. Even though gods and magicians join forces and Ra has back to his old self, Apophis still cannot be defeated easily.
In their despair, the siblings used their last energy to execrate the serpent to the figurine that contain the serpent’s shadow and they managed to banish the serpent. Overall, this series is really good, full of humor I find amusing and the action is not boring.
There is also love triangle in this story between Sadie, Waltz and Anubis (God of Death and Funeral). Even though in the middle of the final book, it turns out that Waltz hosting Anubis. In the end, Waltz and Anubis shared one body so Sadie does not confused anymore to choose which guy she wants to date because she love both of them. Carter and Zia are also dating. Eventually, the world be at peace.
