(2011) The Red Pyramid: the first book in Rick Riordan’s The Kane Chronicles. Percy Jackson fought Greek Gods. Now the Gods of Egypt are waking in the modern world… ‘I GUESS IT STARTED THE NIGHT OUR DAD BLEW UP THE BRITISH MUSEUM . . .’ CARTER AND SADIE KANE’S dad is a brilliant Egyptologist with a secret plan that goes horribly wrong. An explosion shatters the ancient Rosetta stone and unleashes Set, the evil god of chaos . . . Set imprisons Dr Kane in a golden coffin and Carter and Sadie must run for their lives. To save their dad, they embark on a terrifying quest from Cairo to Paris to the American South-west and discover the truth about their family’s connection to the House of Life: an Egyptian temple of magic that has existed for thousands of years. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt are far from dead and buried. And neither, unfortunately, are their gods . . . Praise for the Percy Jackson series: ‘Witty and inspired. Gripping, touching and deliciously satirical…This is most likely to succeed Rowling. Puffin is on to a winner’ – Amanda Craig, The Times ‘Puns, jokes and subtle wit, alongside a gripping storyline’ – Telegraph ‘Perfectly paced, with electrifying moments chasing each other like heartbeats’ – New York Times
