Format: Hardcover
I adored Rick Riordan's series based on Greek mythology, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, so when I learned he had a new series going, based on Egyptian mythology, I was predisposed to adore it too. The Red Pyramid is the first book in The Kane Chronicles, and it introduces us to our main characters, Carter and Sadie Kane. Following their mother's untimely death six years earlier, 14-year-old Carter has been traveling the world with his archeologist father, being home-schooled and desperately wishing he could have a normal life, school, friends....Meantime, 12-year-old Sadie has been in the keeping of their maternal grandparents in London, with all the stability that Carter longs for; not surprisingly, she wishes she had his freedom, and his close connection with their father, whom Sadie only sees twice a year. On one of these semi-annual visits, Julius Kane, their formidable parent, takes them to the British Museum, where he intends to conduct a ritual involving the Rosetta Stone. But it goes horribly awry, and Julius is captured by one of the ancient Egyptian gods, the evil Set, whose mission is to cause chaos and destruction throughout the world. It is left to Carter and Sadie, with a little help from the cat goddess Bast and the magicians Zia and Amos, Julius's brother, to try to stop Set and save the world. But they have very little time....As is likely true of most readers of this novel, I am less familiar with Egyptian mythology than I am with Greek, but I'm assuming that Riordan is as accurate with this set of deities as he was with the Greeks; once again, he provides an action-packed storyline that is saved from sheer breathlessness by the excellent rendition of many, even minor, characters, who forward the plot and provide entertainment as well.Read more ›

My students challenged me to read this book; I couldn't put it down! I had already started the Percy Jackson series but I think I like this one even more! Very well done, Mr. Riordan! One of my grade 3 students polished off this book in about three days; she was reading every spare minute! She and I were fighting over who was going to get to the second book first!

This is the first book in the Kane Chronicles trilogy. I loved his Percy Jackson seres, so I decided to give this set a try. I loved it! Very entertaining, funny, and full of educational facts about ancient Egypt.

Format: Hardcover
Rick Riordan's run of fun fantasy continues. Using myth combined with fantasy this has the promise of a great new series.

This new series, unlike the Percy Jackson series, is told by a brother and sister -- Carter and Sadie -- who alternate chapters. The setting is an alternative earth where magic exists. In this case, the magic is based in Egyptian mythology rather than the Greek of "The Olympians" books. And Carter and Sadie have their heritage flow from the pharaohs rather than from be offspring of the so-called 'gods' themselves.

The Egyptian myths leave plenty of scope for future stories to come. Other great new fantasy books that have recently been released are the brilliant 'Godstone - The Kairos Boxes' and 'Chosen Ones'.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on May 16 2010
Format: Hardcover
Having explored the trouble caused by Titans and Greek gods, Riordan has apparently turned his attention to a new pantheon -- Egyptian gods. "The Red Pyramid" is overlong in places, but Riordan's first Kane Chronicles novel is a rollicking adventure/fantasy filled with ancient deities (in modern forms), fireballs, hostile magicians, and a basketball-playing baboon.

Ever since their mother died, the Kane kids have hardly seen one another. Carter travels the world with his Egyptologist father, while Sadie lives with their maternal grandparents in London. But when their father attempts a magic spell and is captured by the god Set, Carter and Sadie are temporarily whisked away by their uncle Amos -- and then found by a mysterious magical cabal called the House of Life.

Unfortunately, the kids soon learn two things -- Set is planning to destroy the world in just a few days, and the House has decided that they must be killed. So they're on the run with the cat goddess Bast (formerly Sadie's cat Muffin), trying to find a way to stop an ancient god of chaos from killing their father and plunging the world into horror.They'll have to venture into ancient, unspeakable dangers, and discover a side of themselves that they never knew of... but even that might not restore Ma'at.

On the surface, "The Red Pyramid" sounds a lot like Riordan's Percy Jackson series -- you've got disaffected teenagers trying to save the world from evil gods, and finding out they have some magic powers themselves. But it actually is a rather different story (there's no safe haven for these kids!), and the interwoven Egyptian myths and magic give it a very distinct flavor of its own.
