The Red Pyramid is a book that follows brother and sister Carter and Sadie Kane. At the British Museum, Julius, Carter and Sadie’s father, sets loose Set, the Egyptian God of Chaos and gets trapped in the Rosetta Stone. Their uncle, Amos, comes to take the siblings and to their family mansion. The book continues to show the adventures of Carter and Sadie along with Egyptian mythology!

I really enjoyed this book. It is a perfect mix of adventure and action with Egyptian mythology. Personally, I really like Egyptian mythology, so if you also like it I would recommend this book to you!

This book has an ending that will leave you waiting to read the next book but it's just not quite a cliffhanger. Sadie and Carter learn about magic, the house of life and how their family is connected to the ancient Egyptian gods. I highly recommend this title for fans of Percy Jackson. If you haven't read Percy Jackson yet I recommend reading it. This book is also good for fans of mythology, fantasy and other books by Rick Riordan.

I love the Kane Chronicles so much! Just like I loved saying the Latin words from The Heroes of Olympus series, I love saying the Egyptian spells to myself.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: There is a creepy zombie-dude named Face of Horror (Riordan describes vividly). Set is evil. Might be disturbing to younger children when a certain character is discovered to really be a shabti and breaks into pieces.
