From the Inside Flap
A brilliant new adventure series from the best-selling author of Percy Jackson.
Carter and Sadie have nothing in common but their parents: their father Dr. Julius Kane, a brilliant Egyptologist, and their mother, a famed archaeologist who died under mysterious circumstances when they were young.
The siblings barely know each other, but one night, their father brings them together at the British Museum, promising a 'research experiment' that will set things right for their family.
His plans go horribly wrong.
An explosion unleashes an ancient evil - the Egyptian god Set who banishes Dr. Kane to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives. Now orphaned, Carter and Sadie must embark on a dangerous quest - from Cairo to Paris to the American Southwest, to save their father and stop Set from destroying everything they care about . . .

Once again, there are thrills and spills, plot twists and lots of "he's the bad guy, no wait, HE'S the bad guy!". I had just come from reading one of my favourite sci-fi novels Dune and was thinking that a "kids" book would be a bit of a come down. Whilst not having the character depth and philosophy, it is nonetheless and great read for all ages. It has a touch of the Indiana Jones about it, whilst maintaining an originality that is rather rare in books nowadays.
Don't make the mistake of thinking it's a book for kids, and don't be put off by the film of Percy Jackson. If you read this, you are in for a real treat!
The plot is full of action, drama and humour and the characters are well developed throughout the book. I must admit, I can't help but love the novel.
The book itself was delivered in great condition and arrived on time, which I am very thankful for.
Indeed, I would recommend the book to any enthusiastic reader.
I was pleasantly surprised when i heard about the Kane chronicles. We go from greek/roman mythology to Egyptian mythology. I have always been fascinated by the Egyptians and have found these a very good read.
It is very much written in a similar style as the Percy Jackson series and is both therefore easy to read & entertaining. The story is told from the point of view of the Kane siblings, each taking they're turn with the next chapter. Which is interesting and helps fill in a lot of the blanks.
Overall if you enjoyed the PJ series you will love this too. I found it amusing how in certain places there are references to the PJ storyline which only made me like this more.
