The Red Pyramid Hardcover Book Review

About the Book: 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.

Our Take: There are few authors that have enjoyed the overwhelming success that Rick Riordan has with his various book series.  If you aren't familiar with Riordan yet, he's the author of both the Percy Jackson and 39 Clues series.  Everything he touches is gold, and now we get a new start from him with this book, The Red Pyramid.

Overall, I was pleased with this one.  Its full of adventure and intrigue, as you expect from the author, and it also addresses some of the interesting relationships between siblings along the way.  The mysteries and secrets are all revealed in the end and its a fantastic ride.  This is a great book and most defiantely worth the money!
