Summary

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.

“The clash of modern and classical worlds is both exciting and entertaining.’’- The New York Times Book Review

“This volume can stand alone, but no reader will be able to read just one. Look no further for the next Harry Potter; meet Percy Jackson, as legions of fans already have.’’- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Awesome book! May 11, 2011

The textbook is about two siblings who find out they have the blood of Egyptian gods. It is a great fantasy textbook. Rick Riordan is the only author who can role fantasy in with history and not make it boring. It shows Carter and Sadie, the main characters bond to help save their captured dad. Many obstacles stand in their way however. It is a very inspiring story. There for is strongly recommend it. It's totally worth your money if you like legends and action and a view through two amazing characters. You need to buy it! I highly recommend it.
