Since her mother's death, Sadie has become a de facto orphan. As she lives quietly with her ancient grandparents in London, her brother Carter travels to faraway lands with his father, the eminent Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane. When the family is finally reunited at the British Museum for a mysterious "research experiment," Sadie is nervously hopeful that things will be better. Instead, a sudden catastrophe occurs: Her father is suddenly banished to oblivion and she and her frightened sibling realize that the gods of Egypt are reawakening and at least one of these resurrected deities is targeting his long sleeping ire on the Kanes! A bestseller in hardcover; now in paperback for the first time.
