The Kane Chronicles

Last night I finished the first book in Rick Riordan’s new series, The Kane Chronicles – The Red Pyramid.

While Carter Kane travels around the world with their Egyptologist father, his sister Sadie lives in London with their maternal grandparents. The siblings only see one another twice a year. When their father takes them to the British Museum, the last thing they expect is that he will disappear while summoning ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses.

The duo find themselves on the run, trying to save their father and learning lots of surprising things about their family history and who they really are.

This is another excellent youth novel by the author of the Percy Jackson series. The story is told in first person by both Carter and Sadie, each having chapters of their own. Full of action and Egyptian mythology, this story is sure to spark the interest of those who love the Percy Jackson series.
