The Red Pyramid

A while ago I put up some books that I was hoping to read. Now thanks to my friend Adrianna I was able to read the Red Pyramid. The Red Pyramis is a 515 page book byRick Riordan.It is the first instalment of The Kane Chronicles. The series follows Carter and Sadie Kane on their quest to reunite man and gods. After their father magically dissappears, Carter and Sadie learn that their family is part on the ancient Egyptian House of Life. Magicians who work to imprison the gods. Carter and Sadie are descendants of the pharohs, and are exceptionally powerful. Then they realize they are posessed by ancient Egyptian gods. On a treck across America with a baboon, cat godess, and untrustworthy uncle, the Kanes encounter dangers that bring them together. They find the truth about their parent's death and what it takes to save the world.
Overall I thought this was a pretty good book. It's not one of my favorite boos but it's really interesting. it's kinda similar to the first Percy Jackson book. I will definetly be looking out for the next book in this series. I would recommend it.
