Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles - Book 1) by Rick Riordan
By teen libJanuary 26, 2011
From the author that brought us the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series comes an all-new series featuring the brother and sister team of Carter and Sadie Kane. Since the death of their mother six years before, Carter and Sadie have been separated. Carter has been living out of a suitcase, being homeschooled, and traveling the world with his famous Egyptologist father, Dr. Julius Kane, while his sister has been living with their grandparents in London.
But that all changes when Carter and his father pick up Sadie on one of their rare visits and head to the British Museum for a private tour where their father promises to “make things right.” If by making things right, Dr. Kane meant blowing up the Rosetta Stone and causing his own disappearance, then he was definitely successful. But Carter and Sadie think that all did not go according to plan. Now it is up to them to battle the forces of chaos, sort out their growing powers, and rescue their dad, all before the ancient Egyptian god, Set, conquers and destroys the modern world.
