The Red Pyramid

The Red Pyramid

The Red Pyramid

Carter and Sadie are brother and sister. They see each other once a year. Since their Mom died Sadie lives in London with their Grandparents. Carter travels around the world with their Dad, a famous Egyptologist. The kids don’t like each other much and the Grandparents don’t really seem to care much for the Dad. I mean, they’re civil, but they only see each other once year. Mostly, they just get through the visit and move on, waiting it out until the next year.

On Christmas Eve Carter and his Dad are in London to spend their one day of the year with Sadie. Dr. Kane takes the kids to the British Museum. Yawn. As if they haven’t done THAT before. What they really haven’t done is watch their Dad get trapped inside a golden sarcophagus after calling from the dead an Egyptian god determined to destroy the world.

Why would their Dad do that? HOW did their Dad do that? And who is this Uncle Amos that shows up to save them and take them to New York? Why New York? And why do Sadie and Carter have to be together? Another action packed adventure from Rick Riordan. Lots of monsters, lots of figuring out who to trust, lots of previously unknown powers. The action really is non-stop. Once you read this one, let us all know what you think. How does it compare to Percy Jackson and the Olympians? This one is quite a doorstop weighing in at over 500 pages. Not as bad as Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire at over 700 pages, but still, it’s a big book. The last 100 pages were the best for me and I’m looking forward to The Kane Chronicles #2. I hope it will reveal more about the characters. Author: Rick Riordan Series: The Kane Chronicles

Kane Chronicles Series:

#1: The Red Pyramid on CD Downloadable eBook or eAudio
#2: The Throne of Fire on CD, Downloadable eAudio

If you like this sort of action packed mythological adventure don’t miss Rick Riordan’s first series about Percy Jackson and Greek Mythology. Book 1 is The Lightning Thief. If you haven’t read it ask all your friends about it, chances are one of them has read it. If you like Ancient Egypt, try Theodosia or The Egypt Game.

  6. Post 3- RICK ROCKS(: Lol, (My uncles name is rick and my dads name is rock) Lol.

  7. Great book,i’d give it a 4 out of 5
    i think it would’ve been better if it wasn’t the main characters telling the story with a voice recorder, although it gave some material for comedy, if Rick Riordan had wrote like “The Lost Hero”, alternating from character to character, it would’ve been more interesting to read anyways, great plot to it and i hope Rick keeps on giving us great books!
