The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan
I totally enjoyed this book and I think that Riordan's writing has improved since he began his Percy Jackson series. In this, the second book of the Kane Chronicles, Sadie, who celebrates her 13th birthday in an unusual and unexpected way, and her brother Carter, who are descendents of the pharoahs and therefore can host the Egyptian gods and goddesses, have recruited other kids who can also do ancient Egyptian magic. With help from their friends and some friendly Egyptian gods, they battle their enemies in order to find Ra and restore him to his throne. Filled with adventure, magic, humor and a little romance, this book is a really fun read!
