Even if you know nothing about the Egyptian pantheon (I always preferred the Greeks, myself) you will no doubt get drawn into the trials of the Kane's. The author has a wonderful way of making all of his characters, mortal and immortal alike, human (for want of a better word). You can easily imagine them as your children and their friends or even the people you grew up with.
Don't pass this one by. And make sure you check out the author's other works, as well. You never know when and where their paths might cross and you don't want to be left out, I assure you.
In these stories, we are introduced to the lesser known gods of Egypt and the main characters use magic rather than physical fighting skills. I believe that Rick has shown his development as a writer as the novels keep moving at a good pace and the balance between humor, action and romance is mostly about right.
I will admit that I took me a little bit to get into the first book. I was just coming off HOO, and making the switch from Greek/Roman to Egyptian took me a little bit to get used to.
Once I got used to it, I was immersed into a different yet similar Riordan tale. Twists, turns, monsters, Gods- these books were great.
I also loved following the development of the characters. You can practically feel them growing and changing. Reading a story is so much more worthwhile when you really care about the characters.
I was sad when I ended the third book, but only because the series was over. Fingers crossed for an Olympian-Egyptian crossover series!
IT FAIRLY WELL BLEW MY MIND
I read the entire trilogy in two days however I still prefer Percy to Carter (Carter relies on others too much and has weak fighting skills)
As I often do in books with split points of view I choose my favourite character, in this novel I chose Sadie because she has the superior powers and personality(soooooooo much sass) and naturally I paid more attention to her love life. Who would ever be contradicted over those two?!? A socially awkward teenager or a gorgeous powerful god? (Anubis reminded me of Nico di Angelo (please forgive my spelling) and that made me incredibly happy) every part including Anubis made me very excited I SHIP SO HARD!!! Anyway I was waiting the entire trilogy for walt to kick the bucket but NOOOOO that was just too much to ask for.and for that reason and that reason only this book looses a star in my book
Carter Kane and Sadie Kane are brother and sister, but they only see each other twice a year since their mom died. Carter gets to live with his dad, the egyptologist, and travel the world while Sadie lives a normal life in London. This is until Carter and Sadie's dad takes them to see the infamous Rosetta Stone and sets free the five major gods of Egypt while getting himself trapped and abducted by the God of Evil in the process. Sadie and Carter learn that they are not just normal kids, but magicians of the House of Life. Together, they must find a way to save their dad, but, when they are close to achieving their goal, they see that an unimaginable and impossible task lies ahead. This causes them to do the impossible in order to save the world from Chaos.
