Publisher Comments:

Since their mother's death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane.

One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a "research experiment" at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives.

Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them--Set has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe — a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family, and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.

I was really excited to read The Red Pyramid. I've always loved Egyptian mythology so an entire book where they come to life was very exciting for me to read. Bast was always my favorite goddess because I love cats, so I was happy when helped Sadie and Carter with her feline reflexes. The humor had me laughing, especially the cat jokes. An exciting read for all ages, don't think that you can't read it if you're older. It's action packed and lots of fun!

I was really stoked the first time i found out that Rick Riordan was writing another series. I loved the Percy Jackson books and then the Kane Chronicles came into the picture! Sadie and Carter Kane discover that Egyptian magic is real and that they are magicians. The adventure and the comedy fits perfectly within each other creating this fantastic book!
