Waaah, Minggu kemarin BBI ultah yang ke-3! Selamat! Semoga makin keren dan makin eksis di dunia ini. :D
Dalam rangka ultah BBI, ada rangkaian acara, salah satunya Giveaway Hop. Alhamdulillah saya menang walau bukan di semuanya. Salah satunya, saya menang di Tea Time and Books. Hadiahnya The Serpent's Shadow (Kane Chronicles #3) - Rick Riordan.
Berhubung saya belum pernah baca Kane Chronicles 1 dan 2, jadi kali ini, saya mengharapkan dua buku tersebut.
1. The Red Pyramid
Since their mother's death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane.
One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a "research experiment" at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives.
Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them —Set— has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe - a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.
2. The Throne of Fire
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.
Berdasarkan pengalaman sih sebetulnya saya bisa aja baca novel seri nggak dari awal dan cukup mengerti ceritanya, tapi kita lihat saja nanti.
