Percy Jackson fought Greek Gods. Now the Gods of Egypt are waking in the modern world...


CARTER AND SADIE KANE'S dad is a brilliant Egyptologist with a secret plan that goes horribly wrong. An explosion shatters the ancient Rosetta stone and unleashes Set, the evil god of chaos . . .

Set imprisons Dr Kane in a golden coffin and Carter and Sadie must run for their lives. To save their dad, they embark on a terrifying quest from Cairo to Paris to the American South-west and discover the truth about their family's connection to the House of Life: an Egyptian temple of magic that has existed for thousands of years.

The pharaohs of ancient Egypt are far from dead and buried. And so, unfortunately, are their gods . . .

This one is just begging to be thrown out the window. The only reason I kept it is that it's about Egypt, and I like Egypt. Right now just thinking about this book makes me want to go to sleep. You should probably just avoid this book, unless it's more
