New Book by Rick Riordan: The Red Pyramid


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 thought I'd spotlight this book because my entire family loved The Percy Jackson and the Olympians books so much, and I'm really looking forward to reading this book together as well.  Hopefully my kids will learn as much about Egyptian mythology as they did about Greek mythology!  The Red Pyramid is in bookstores and on Amazon now!  Let me know if you read it and if you liked it!

  1. I just got my copy in the mail today from amazon (9.99 there), but haven't had the chance to read it yet. It looks pretty good and the size... 517 pages. Thats twice the size of a Percy Jackson book. I've already been informed that i have to start reading it soon since my sister and mother wants to read it.
