I absolutely loved this audiobook! I got it for my kids to listen to and I think I liked it more than they did. Carter and Sadie are siblings that look nothing alike and rarely spend any time even on the same continent. On one of the rare occasions they do see each other, they find out a LOT more about their family than they ever thought existed. They learned that magic is real, their father was a magician and the 'gods' they learned about are real. Now to save their father, they have to battle with magic and save the world!

I have to say, I think the cat is my favorite character. The two narrators did a great job with the voices and I got completely into the book. Carter and Sadie couldn't be more different but it was their differences that made them so perfect for the story. The author did a great job with all of the characters and settings. The siblings don't just stay in one place but travel everywhere. I liked the crush that Carter had, though it didn't exactly turn out like I'd expected. The way Sadie and Carter have to learn magic and the fact that their family is a strong old powerful family was great. I can't wait to read the next one.

I rate this a 5/5. It was a great book.

This book is about the ancient Egypt's in our modern times. This book is similar with the other books Rick Riordan has written and I am very glad that this book is connected with the greek ones, as there are connections between the two. This book has been very helpful to my history results as we are learning ancient Egypt. All the information on the gods and life in the past will make my grades top of the class.

This story is fiction yet has true facts about the Egyptians, and Rick Riordan has twined them in so well that it is hard to tell which he made up and the ones that are true. Written in a way that you will never forget, this book will be impossible to put down for everyone.

This is the start of the first book of the Kane series.


Carter Kane and Sadie Kane have both lived different lives ever since their mom died.  They like how they live right now, Carter travels around the world with his dad, and his sister stays with her grandparents in England. Thats until they get to a British museum and blow it to pieces from their dad. Now they have a bigger problem, their dad didnt just blow up the museum, he released all the Egyptian gods.


            The two are forced together as an unlikely pair and their Uncle Amos has to show them the world of Egyptian magic. Though one thought has bothered them, their dad might be still alive. If so, whos responsible for the explosion over at the museum? The answer is the god Set, the god of chaos. As soon as he escapes with the other gods, he plans to take over the world that we know. Forming a Red Pyramid that Carter and Sadie have to save the world from, even if it means letting go of their dad&


            I enjoyed this book from head to toe, how it involves action, mystery, and even humor. I can recommend this book to anyone, and to see how far these kids can get while buried with problems, but determination and a little bit of luck, can get them anywhere.

The Red Pyramid

5 out of 5 stars


Review by Katie Coggins




After their mother passes, main characters, Carter and Sadie Kane must separate. Sadie goes to their grandparents house in England and Carter goes with their father, an Egyptologist traveling the world. The two grow up only meeting two awkward times a year in London. One of their family reunions goes wrong. By wrong I mean very wrong. Her father blows up the rosetta stone, releases five Egyptian Gods, and somehow manages to get trapped in a golden coffin sunk deep into the ground. What a beginning! The two are forced to work together, with their cat Muffin, now Bast the Egyptian cat goddess, and Kufu a basket ball loving baboon, on something unimaginable and unpredictable. They later find out that they are magicians with gods stuck inside them, (at least they are not imagining the voices in their heads). They embark on a journey to save their dad, learn to use their powers, not get caught by the House Of Life (other magicians who dont think kindly of the god hosting siblings), and save the world from the chaos created by the gods release. Sadie and her friendly neighborhood goddess Isis can read hieroglyphics, while Carter and his new buddy Horus play with swords. They can both use magic, shape shift, and pull things out of the Duat, not quite the same as pulling a rabbit out of a hat. The kids fight monsters like Leroy, meet a cute god of the dead, and jump from place to place in a matter of days. They must defeat Set the strongest of the gods and his demons or the world will be destroyed. Can they do it or will they go up in the ashes of civilization?




This exciting 528 page adventure by Rick Riordan teaches you things about the Egyptian gods and goddesses in interesting ways. It weaves in mythology and modern day things, as well as magic that might make you think you are in the future. Action is present on every page and exciting events chase each other like cars in a street race. You get to know the characters throughout the book and the way they feel. The book is written as audio voice recordings by Carter and Sadie so you really get inside their heads. The book is filled with comedy, heart-felt moments, as well as heart racing terror. The Los Angeles Times said Once again, Riordan masterfully meshes modern life with mythology and history, reinvigorating dusty artifacts such as the Rosetta Stone... I would suggest this book for ages 11 and up, even for reluctant readers. It is a New York Times bestseller. Must I say more? If you enjoy this book I would suggest reading Riordans other books. All are fantastic. Warning: Side affects of reading this book: may cause awesome fun dreams, wanting to read it during class, fantasizing on who your god/goddess would be, and possibly, trying out magic in the hall ways. I hope you enjoy the book!
