Set imprisons Dr Kane in a golden coffin and Carter and Sadie must run for their lives.

But i found the battles went by too fast one God they literally best by stuffing it with salsa so it turns into a cow. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. We do not store files, because it is prohibited.
Which brings me to the second problem with this book, the plot. My favourite thing about the book is about Egyptian mythology, this made it exciting and educational as well.

Instead, he chose to trivialize everything in a weak attempt at humor that just didn't work for me. They eventually be reunited with that someone. Just when you thought that he wouldn't be able to recreate the magic of Percy Jackson, he presents you with the winning combination of Carter and Sadie Kane. Is that a good thing? I ended up really liking it, especially the third book. Rick Riordan is absolutely humorous! Carter and Sadie learn that the god plans to destroy the using their father's power, and they embark on a quest to save him and prove their innocence and good intentions to the House.
I thought this would be a small comic book sized novel but it was a large, full length novel.

Now, I have suspicion that I unknowingly can see the future cause The Red Pyramid is exactly the combination of both books.
I still refuse to believe their age, 12 and 14? I most likely will, i just really hope they don't get progressively bigger. The bad guys are just too cheesy in this book, and it's sad. This somehow felt a lot more fast-paced than all of his other books. Its given that Egyptian History is not as fascinating as the Greek and Roman History but egyptian culture has that sense of mystery that Riordan could have played. Egyptian gods, monsters, and magicians battle fiercely with wands, swords, etc. I could immediately connect with Percy but with Carter that didn't happen.
