The Kane Chronicles #1: The Red Pyramid

Dark and ancient evil unleashed at the British Museum? If that’s your bag, Rick Riordan delivers the goods. Rip-roaring thrills steeped in Ancient Egyptian mythology. Everything you expect from the author of the Percy Jackson books. Carter and Sadie barely know each other, let alone their father: brilliant Egyptologist Dr Julius Kane. But one night, their father brings them together at the British Museum for a ‘research experiment’. One which goes horribly wrong. When Dr Kane blows up part of the museum, he sets free a terrible evil: the Egyptian god of chaos and the night. With their father banished into oblivion, Carter and Sadie set off on a dangerous quest. Racing from Cairo and Paris to the American Southwest, they must find a way to save their dad – and the whole world.
