Annotation:

Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane. But while Carter’s been homeschooled, his younger sister, Sadie, has been living with their grandparents in London. Sadie has just what Carter wants — school friends and a chance at a “normal” life. But Carter has just what Sadie longs for—time with their father. After six years of living apart, the siblings have almost nothing in common. Until now.

On Christmas Eve, Sadie and Carter are reunited when their father brings them to the British Museum, with a promise that he’s going to “make things right.” But all does not go according to plan: Carter and Sadie watch as Julius summons a mysterious figure, who quickly banishes their father and causes a fiery explosion.

Soon Carter and Sadie discover that the gods of Ancient Egypt are waking, and the worst of them—Set—has a frightening scheme. To save their father, they must embark on a dangerous journey—a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family and its links to the House of Life, a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2010 September)
Gr 5-8-The first volume (Hyperion, 2010) in Rick Riordan's new series brings Egyptian mythology to life in a non-stop adventure. Since their mother's death, Sadie has lived in England with her grandparents and Carter has been with his father, an Egyptologist who roams the world. After six years, they are reunited when their father brings them to the British Museum. A fiery explosion causes their father to disappear, the kidnapping of the children, the apparent destruction of the Rosetta Stone, and the release of a group of gods intent on destroying the world. The siblings discover that their deliberate separation was caused by a fear about their combined magical powers and that they carry the blood of the pharaohs in their veins. In their effort to save the world and their father, they are assisted by many Egyptian gods. Narrators Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren capture the different natures of the siblings and the personalities of the gods. Kellgren perfectly voices Sadie's impatience and arrogance, while Free makes Carter sound more cautious and cerebral. The story is told alternately by the siblings, offering two interpretations of the action. Listeners will be enthralled.-Edith Ching, Washington Latin Public Charter School, DC (c) Copyright 2010.
