While I was on vacation, I finished three books, all part of the same series - The Kane Chronicles
. They are as follows:The Red PyramidThe Throne of FireThe Serpent's Shadow
Overall, I really liked this series. The first book, however, was hard for me to get into. I went into these books without virtually any knowledge of Egyptian mythology, so naturally I was confused at first. It also moved way too quickly for me. I felt like I was losing track of what the hell was going on half the time. I almost didn't finish The Red Pyramid
just because of the confusion I went through throughout the book. However, the second and third installments in the Kane Chronicles
were much better, and that was mainly because by that point I had a firmer grasp on the mythology. The finale of the series was really captivating, and there were some truly great moments that put it up there with some of my favorite stories in books of all time.
Sadie Kane is also one of my all-time favorite characters ever. She's so awesome~ I love Carter too, but Sadie's personality and snarkiness makes me laugh so much. And when she's sad, mad, horrified, etc., I can almost feel it myself. She's such a loving person, but she'll never let it show, at least not in the conventional way xD
On another note, I've began reading another book called Shadow Zone
, which I have mentioned above. 70 or so pages in, and I'm really interested. It's science-fiction, which I like.
