Apophis, the Chaos snake is rising. It is up to Carter and Sadie Kane to stop him with the help of the new trainees. Sadie and Carter are planning to find and bring the Sun God, Ra back to help defeat Apophis. Unfortunately, no one knows where Ra is. In order to find Ra, the Kane kids have to first find the Book of Ra and learn how to chant the spells. Rumor has it that Ra, the Sun God is senile and completely out of it. How will this affect their journey?
Throughout the book, Carter and Sadie both deal with their personal love life. As you remember in the Red Pyramid Carter fell in love with Zia's Shabtai, now he is on a mission to find the "real" Zia and hopes she remembers him and still likes him. Sadie on the other hand is falling for Anubis, the God of Death, and Walt, who is a decedent from a cursed family line.
Will Sadie and Carter find the Book of Ra and learn how to chant the spells in time to bring Ra back and defeat Apophis? Will Ra be of any use once he is found? Will Zia remember Carter? What about Sadie, who does she end up falling in love with?

I enjoyed reading this book. I loved the thrilling adventures and gambles the characters face. I love the story line and how the characters have to use magic. This book has many twists and turns and very surprising actions that will keep you in suspense and you'llwant to keep reading the book and not put it down. As I loved the book, I did find the ending a little bit of a disappointment, however, the action and thrills of the rest of the story made up for the ending.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrilling, magic filled adventures with a bit of romance and tons of action. I also think anyone who likes Rick Riordan's books should read this.
