I'd been a fan of the Percy Jackson books for quite a while before reading The Kane Chronicles, as somehow they didn't appeal quite so much. However, within a couple of chapters I was wondering what on earth I'd been thinking. Different Gods, different world... but still Rick Riordan's fantastic imagination and skilful way with words which makes you feel like you're right there with the characters.
The books follow the adventures of Carter Kane and his sister as they try to save the world (several times over). The books are presented as a transcript of a cassette tape which supposedly Mr Riordan was sent in the hopes that he would get it published to get the word out about what's going on. In a similar way to the Heroes of Olympus series, the narrator changes from Carter to his sister, (sometimes from chapter to chapter), although in this book (as opposed to Heroes of Olympus) it's purely in the first person, no matter who is narrating. I found this allowed an added depth into the thought processes of the characters as they struggle with what are quite often difficult concepts. Some people have commented that this series is a bit more "grown up" than the Percy Jackson books. I'd agree to a point, but they are still very much books for young adults.
There is a "look inside" feature on this book, and if you're at all hesitant about buying all 3 in one go, then read the sample. I promise it'll leave you wanting to know what happens next.
Okay I've read them, great books. I will say I prefer the PJ series but I do like the story line/s and also the additional book you can buy (the survival guide) which follows on characters etc.
The mythology interests me as does the imagination that goes into the books.
Rick Riordan is one of my favourite authors and I look forward to whatever else he writes!
