The Kane Chronicles! Brilliant! I was expecting this to be like the Percy Jackson series, with Carter and Sadie starring as Egyptian demigods- so to have them really be magicians hosting the gods was a complete surprise. I love how its a unique story, different yet similar to the Olympian series, and how the characters are developed, with Carter being the physical fighter and Sadie being the verbal. The siblings are amazing, and I loved reading it from their points of view, though I'm not sure how I feel about the way the story was told, with Carter and Sadie saying everything on a recording. It was new, but I like reading the story through the character's point of view as the see it. Anyways, Bast is amazing, I like having Set come back into play, and the fight against Apophis and the ways of the House are going to be interesting. Also, I like how Sadie and Carter separated from Isis and Horus- at least for now

I wasn't a big fan of this when I read it 4 or 5 years ago. But then again I wasn't a big fan of TLH when I read it for the first time. Starting to think a reread might be in order.

Percy Jackson fought Greek gods and now Carter and Sadie Kane battle to keep the Egyptian gods from taking over the world in Rick Riordan’s new series, The Kane Chronicles.

The Red Pyramid is the first book in the new series and it’s totally awesome! Brother and sister, Carter and Sadie Kane have lived apart since their mother died when they were young. Carter travels the world with his dad who’s a brilliant Egyptologist, and Sadie lives with her grandparents in London. When their dad destroys the Rosetta Stone in the British Museum, he releases some dangerous Egyptian gods that have been trapped for centuries. Set, the god of chaos, traps Carter’s dad in a gold tomb and Carter and Sadie have to run for their lives. To save their dad, they must defeat Set and his minions. Along the way they are helped by some powerful gods who help them discover the truth about their family and unlock the magic inside them.

I love the way that Rick Riordan creates a story around myths and legends and The Red Pyramid left me wanting to know more about Egyptian myths and legends. He makes the gods seem cool, particularly Anubis (even though he’s the god of the underworld). The Red Pyramid is exciting, action packed, and the perfect book for those who loved the Percy Jackson series. I can’t wait for the next one in the series! 10 out of 10

I'm on the second book of this series called the throne of fire. It's pretty good! Kinda sad though and the comic book version was really good too!
