The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan

Feb 9, 2011

This J level book, The Red Pyramid, is an entertaining read – full of Egyptian Mythology, magic, fighting monsters and demons. Sadie and Carter Kane, siblings, have been living separately: Carter has lived with his dad and Sadie with her mother’s parents. Their father releases an Egyptian god, Set, in a research experiment which leads to his disappearance and a heroic and dangerous journey by Sadie and Carter to rescue their Dad. In the process, Sadie and Carter learn their heritage and their ability to perform Egyptian magic. Many far flung travels and close calls as they work with Uncle Amos to set things right. I enjoyed the book, though it seemed a bit long, a few battles too many, but humorous and exciting. This is the first volume of The Kane Chronicles.
