Shortlisted for the Independent Booksellers Book Award 2011
Best-selling author Rick Riordan who created Percy Jackson has once again created some non-stop thrilling action in this headlong adventure as the Egyptian past comes alive and threatens two present day children.
Carter and Sadie, the children of world famous Egyptologist Dr Julius Kane, have no idea what to expect when their father invites them to a special night at the British Museum. Carter and Sadie watch horrified as Dr Kane’s experiment goes horribly wrong causing the Rosetta Stone to explode bringing forth Set, an Egyptian god, who banishes their father, and causes them to flee for their lives.
In alternate chapters, Carter and Sadie tell the desperate story of their survival as they travel across the world to save their father. The reborn power of ancient Egypt is a fascinating and dramatic force to be reckoned with. (9+)
The Red Pyramid (The Kane Chronicles book 1) by Rick Riordan
Carter and Sadie have nothing in common but their parents: their father Dr. Julius Kane, a brilliant Egyptologist, and their mother, a famed archaeologist who died under mysterious circumstances when they were young. The siblings barely know each other, but one night, their father brings them together at the British Museum, promising a 'research experiment' that will set things right for their family. His plans go horribly wrong. An explosion unleashes an ancient evil - the Egyptian god Set who banishes Dr. Kane to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives. Now orphaned, Carter and Sadie must embark on a dangerous quest - from Cairo to Paris to the American Southwest, to save their father and stop Set from destroying everything they care about...
