Here's a review published by the Washington Post:


Rick Riordan catapulted from Edgar-winning detective fiction to international renown with his tween series "Percy Jackson and the Olympians." His new series, "The Kane Chronicles," swaps the bickering, boisterous Greek pantheon for the equally intriguing gods of ancient Egypt. The Red Pyramid (Disney Hyperion, $17.99; ages 9-12) begins with a literal bang in the British Museum. Kane siblings Carter, 14, and Sadie, 12, watch in horror as explosive forces imprison their Egyptologist father in a golden coffin. The two are soon on the run from London to Cairo to Washington, D.C., trying to piece together clues to aid Dad's rescue. The pace never flags as the narrative cuts between cautious Carter and intrepid Sadie. Riordan knows what kids like and delivers it well, including action-packed scenes involving a key obelisk, the Washington Monument.



From the Washington Post

It's at the bottom of the article on the site.

I didn't like it that much, cause it seemed too traditional big happy family reunion ending.

Because of the movie New moon the twilight books are really selling so PJO is #2 behind them. But it is great that TRP continues to stay at #1.

As a official twilight hater, I am really disappointed that a book about a 100+ year old dude who likes a 20 year old girl is above Percy. I suspect brainwash Very Happy

I am no vampire fan for sure. I am grossed out by the whole goth and vampirish look and I mean what future does a live girl have with a dead - living dead guy. PLeeease!

Sorry to go off topic. And yet it is obvious that Sadie has the hots for the god of the dead, Anubis, so go figure.
