Very good series. Maybe not as good as the Percy Jackson series, but you should still read it! After all, anything Rick Riordan writes is amazing, correct?

Coming from the author of the Percy Jackson series, I thought this series would be good. It was intregint, but slow and less developed than the last book. All the talk about egyptian gods was confusing and not always clearly explained. It was good, but a dissipointment from the Percy jackson books.

Author Rick Riordan is best known for his Percy Jackson and the Olympians books that combine the pantheon of Greek gods with a rag-tag bunch of modern kids on a heroic quest to save the world. In his new series, The Kane Chronicles, Riordan mines the equally rich Egyptian mythos for a similar but no less exciting adventure. Book one, The Red Pyramid, introduces Carter Kane (age 14) and Sadie Kane (age 12). Since the death of their mother six years ago, these siblings have lived separate lives. Carter roams the globe with his Egyptologist father, Julius, while Sadie lives in England with grandparents. The scattered family is reunited one Christmas Eve when Julius Kane brings his children to the British Museum. What happens there results in the destruction of the Rosetta Stone, the disappearance of Carter and Sadie’s dad, and the unleashed power of the ancient Egyptian god of chaos. This god, Set, is of course out to destroy the world and Carter and Sadie—who begin to display some unique powers of their own—are the only ones who can stop him. They are aided (and educated in Egyptian lore) by a colorful cast of magicians, gods, goddesses, and monsters. Sadie is cheeky and tenaciously curious; Carter is cautious but steadfast. The siblings’ banter (the tale is presented as a transcript of an audio recording) is as much fun as the action-packed chapters, and it’s a refreshing to have a female hero join a genre that finally features main characters with a biracial heritage (the Kane kids have a black father and a white mother). Riordan brings ancient Egypt to life and sends it crashing into the modern world. The result is non-stop, dynamic, rip-roaring adventure.

i liked the book it actually was better than the other Egyptian book i read The Egypt Game so this kinda gave me a understanding of Egyptian gods and it will probably be as popular as Percy Jackson because this book is better written like my teacher said

It was good, enjoyable. But I thought that the main characters lacked the drive and appeal of Percy Jackson. And also, the side characters weren’t as unique and hilarious as those in Riorden’s former series. It was good, but I think that the only reason there are a bazillion holds on the book is because of Percy Jackson’s popularity - something which The Red Pyramid is not going to be able to compete with.
