5.0 out of 5 stars The Red Pyramid, 5 Jun. 2010
Rick Riordan's run of fun fantasy continues. Using myth combined with fantasy this has the promise of a great new series.

This new series, unlike the Percy Jackson series, is told by a brother and sister -- Carter and Sadie -- who alternate chapters. The setting is an alternative earth where magic exists. In this case, the magic is based in Egyptian mythology rather than the Greek of "The Olympians" books. And Carter and Sadie have their heritage flow from the pharaohs rather than from be offspring of the so-called 'gods' themselves.

The Egyptian myths leave plenty of scope for future stories to come. Other great new fantasy books that have recently been released are the brilliant:

Godstone: The Kairos Boxes
The Roman Mysteries Omnibus
100 Cupboards
