♠Reading Book #177: The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan♠

Reading Book #177


Title: The Red Pyramid
Author:
Rick Riordan
Release Date: May 4th 2010
Pages: Paperback, 516 pages
Characters:
Carter, Sadie
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. Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them--Set--has his sights on the Kanes. 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.

At last, I'm now reading The Red Pyramid! It's been in my bookshelf for quite sometime now. Ever since, I've been fascinated with the culture of Egypt. I think their history is very rich and complex. I've seen all the Mummy movies (Brendan Fraser) and their cinematic take on ancient Egypt is very real to me. 

I have high expectations on The Red Pyramid. I haven't read the Percy Jackson series. If I'm going to have a positive reading experience with the Red Pyramid, I guess I'll seek out the Percy Jackson books! Cheerz!
