The Red Pyramid is about two siblings who barely know each other. Since their mothers’ death, Carter and Sadie Kane have been separated. Carter got to travel the world with his dad, Dr. Julius Kane, while Sadie gets to stay with their grandmother and grandfather in London. After the night of an explosion at the British Museum, Carter’s and Sadie’s life quickly changed when their father summoned a mysterious figure. They find that they are the most powerful children born with the blood of the pharaoh.
This book made me not want to stop reading. It has electrifying moments where it’s indescribable. Such as “We only had a few hours, so listen carefully. If you are hearing this story, you’re already in danger. Sadie and I might be your only chance. Go to the school. Find the locker. I won’t tell you which school or which locker, because if the right person, you’ll find it. The combination is 13/32/33. By the time you finish listening, you’ll know what those numbers mean. Just remember the story we’re about to tell you isn’t complete yet. How it ends will depend on you…” That was the beginning of the book and I hope it grabbed your attention, because when I read it I couldn’t stop reading. Will they manage to save the world from the gods of Egypt or will they fail?
I recommend this book to the Percy Jackson fans or if you love Egypt, then this is a book for you. Rick Riordan again has left us with another piece of his superb work. I hope you love this book as much as I did.
