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.
