Description

The Red Pyramid: the first book in Rick Riordan's The Kane Chronicles.

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

'I GUESS IT STARTED THE NIGHT OUR DAD BLEW UP THE BRITISH MUSEUM . . .'

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 neither, unfortunately, are their gods . . .

Rick Riordan has now sold an incredible 55 million copies of his books worldwide

Don't get me wrong, The Red Pyramid is a good story. Problem is, it's MIND-NUMBINGLY BOOOOOOOOORING!!!!!!!!! I'm serious, after about 200 pages my brain actually fell asleep. I don't even remember what it's about, only that it's a carbon copy of the Percy Jackson series. The second one is actually quite good, but it's a bit repetitive. 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 cheap.show more
