The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan



Frequent readers of this blog know how much I enjoy reading and sharing Rick Riordan's books.  The Red Pyramid is the first of the Kane Chronicles series.  I just finished reading the third and final book in the series.

When my stepdaughter and I started planning our trip to London, there were two places we wanted to see from the first book: the Rosetta Stone (pictured above) and Cleopatra's Needle.  I didn't get a picture of the second of these two sites, because the tour bus was moving too quickly.

Carter and Sadie Kane have been raised apart since their mother's death.  They are reunited when their dad disappears at the British Museum after blowing up the Rosetta Stone.  Carter and Sadie discover their connection to Egyptian history as they battle the evil that has been released into the world.

  1. I just finished the third book as well. I am also reading the Heroes of Olympus series by Riordan. Finished book two over the weekend. I love the fact these series have gotten kids interested in mythology, an overlooked genre. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I just finished book 2, I'm behind on my Riordan - I haven't read book 2 of his Roman mythology series yet - I'm thinking that book vanished from the classroom library actually so we'll see if I actually do get to read it.

    1. I am all caught up on Riordan. Right now I am reading Ally Carter's Gallagher Girl series. My students were so into them this year, I just had to find out why.
