The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan

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. 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.

If you like Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series, you 'll love The Red Pyramid. Not convinced yet? Click here to read the entire first chapter!

I was hooked after that first chapter and it just gets better from there. This is the first book in Riordan's Kane Chronicles series which promises to be every bit as good as the Percy Jackson series. The Red Pyramid is available at Amazon.
