This was a really good book! It took a little bit to get into it, but about halfway through, it got really interesting and really exciting. I'm a big fan of mythology - all sorts of mythology - and I love the Percy Jackson books, so I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of this series! ( )

I don't know as much about Egyptian gods as Greek ones, so it took me a bit to figure out all the names and who was who. I liked the premise of the story, but some parts were a bit hard to follow. All in all, 3.75 stars. ( )

Egyptian mythology with a twist that's different from his other two series. Does Rick Riordan have Chinese mythology series up his sleeve? ( )
  aliterarylion | Jul 14, 2014 |
When it comes to Rick Riordan novels, I have come to expect a high quality novel. I can't say that this book met those standards. This could be for many reasons--I am far more familiar with the Greek gods and myths than the Egyptian ones, so perhaps my intrinsic interest is less. Then there was the two narrators, which I also didn't enjoy much.

There are more in the series that I may read at some point, but I'm not dying to do it soon. ( )

“The Red Pyramid” is in almost every way an improvement over its predecessors, deeper and more emotionally resonant, and with an underlying moral and philosophical semi-seriousness. None of which takes away from the thrills.

Book description
Since their mother’s death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane.

One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a "research experiment" at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives.

Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them--Set--has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe--a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family, and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.
