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 know I'm super late, but I'm finally jumping on the Rick Riordan bandwagon. I wanted to start with The Lightning Thief, but I couldn't find it at the library, so I read The Red Pyramid instead. And I really liked it! Egyptian mythology! YES. YES. YES. I'm not too familiar with Egyptian mythology...

2.5 starsI found it ironic that just few days ago, I finished Riordan's The Sword of Summer, and it was one of my favorite books of the year, and now I (kind of) finished this and this was my least favorite book of his. I picked this up because I was still on a high after reading Riordan's latest an...
