The Red Pyramid
Carter and Sadie Kane barely know one another. After losing their mother, these siblings lead very separate lives. That all changes the day their father, Julius Kane, causes an explosion in the British Museum! It was supposed to be a normal family outing, but ends with Julius releasing five trapped Egyptian gods! Set, one of the gods, captures Julius inside a coffin. Then their father vanishes into the floor! Carter and Sadie must find a way to save their father and stop Set from destroying the world. A knife-wielding cat, a basketball-loving baboon and a humorous cast of Egyptian gods complete Riordan`s first book in the Kane Chronicles. Filled with adventure and Riordan’s classic wit, fans of Percy Jackson will flock to this fantastic fantasy!
