redpyramid The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan


May 2010

516 pgs.


After their father's research experiment at the British Museum unleashes the Egyptian god Set, Carter and Sadie Kane embark on a dangerous journey across the globe--a quest which 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.


  1. Although I enjoyed this one. I was a little bogged down with all the details. I felt as if the author was trying to pack a lot of info into the book.

  2. Read this with my kids, and we enjoyed it, but I didn't think it came near the originality and humor of the Percy Jackson series. Maybe because the Egyptian mythology is not as familiar to us, but it seemed more contrived, and needed lots of explanations. Some good suspense though, and the kids loved it.

  3. This was a fun one and Riordan always does a good job teaching mythology without the reader knowing it. Not a distinguished book--just fun & exciting and easy to recommend to readers.

  4. i think it was just really good to read. it might not win the Newbery, but i would recommend it to anybody who was looking for something good to read
