The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan


The Red Pyramid

The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan

After his successful, epic Greek mythology series Percy Jackson and the Olympians (the first book of which has been adapted into a movie; The Lightning Thief comes out Friday in theaters!), Rick Riordan is coming out with a new series: The Kane Chronicles, starting out with The Red Pyramid. This features an Egyptian mythology-oriented story, as you may have guessed from the title…

I just read the first chapter (which can be viewed here). It’s great! It sets up a mystery, for the book itself and for the series as a whole, as well ending with a cliffhanger. All in all–well played, Mr. Riordan, I can’t wait for the book to come out in May!
