Customer Reviews

This book was pretty boring.
Amazon Customer
This book, much like the Percy Jackson Ultimate Guide, is a wonderful companion to the Kane Chronicles Series.
Eternalstormy
And the author of these fantastic books (Rick Riordan) is just as amazing!

I found a misplaced copy of this book while grocery shopping right around the time I was finishing up the 2nd Kane Chronicles book with my sons(7 and 9)....I was beyond excited...but put it down after a quick scan through the pages deciding I would probably be buying it for myself and wasn't sure if my sons would be interested. I obsessed over this book for 2 days and ran back to the store and bought it(sorry Amazon...I was too impatient for shipping) My sons LOVE the Survival Guide, it gave us a chance to discuss the illustrations of the characters compared to what we imagined in our minds. And it is also nice to see how much they remember from the books(they were paying attention, not just dragging out bedtime..YAY!). They look through this book everyday. I just started reading the Percy Jackson series to them(while we patiently wait for the 3rd Kane Chronicles book), and they are using the Kane Chronicles Survival Guide to compare characters from the two series if they sound even the slightest bit similar. I will be ordering the survival guide for Percy Jackson as well.

Although I consider his books slightly overrated, Rick Riordan is, in my opinion, a fantastic writer for middle grade and teenage readers. However, when it comes to the spin-offs and guides of his bestselling series, I'm not so sure about their quality.

In the style of Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Ultimate Guide, The Kane Chronicles Survival Guide has a splendid cover: some very cool 3-D images that change when you look at them from a different angle as well as a magnetic clasp. The papers inside are of good quality. I'm pretty sure even the haters of The Kane Chronicles will admit that this book *looks* good.

But you know that old phrase to not judge a book by its cover? Well that's true here, because that content inside this book is lackluster. Most of the information presented in this "Survival Guide" is just basic info, rehashed into this new book. There are also lots of pretty boring character and plot summaries, which, if you really wanted to, could find on Wikipedia or something of the like. Some brief retellings of Egyptian myths are included as well, plus a tiny bit of Egyptian history. Most of the guide, though, has nothing new to tell us about Carter or Sadie, or even the world of The Kane Chronicles.

Even the art doesn't save the sub-par text. Antonio Javier Caparo, the series' illustrator, is just as great of an illustrator as Rick Riordan is of a writer, but there isn't much art by him in here, and most of the art is seen on the cover (remember, the images change, so there are 8 characters displayed on the cover). There's not that much quality art inside the book and even some of the art feels rehashed.

My 12 year old daughter is dictating this review to me. This book is great if you read the Kane Chronicles. It has fun tidbits in it , Some things I overlooked while reading the actual books and this book explained them. I would tell anyone to get this book.
