Kind of like an Egyptian Harry Potter

The Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles, #1)The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sadie and Carter Kane are brother and sister but have lived worlds apart ever since their mother died. Carter travels the globe with his anthropological dad and Sadie lives in England with her maternal grandparents. Carter and his dad are allowed two visiting days with Sadie each year. It is on one of those visiting nights that their world blows up in so many ways. Their dad disappears, they have to run for their lives, and decided whom they can and cannot trust among people they’ve only just met. They learn about each other, their family history and a lot about Egyptian mythology.

The Red Pyramid is similar to Harry Potter as they young people learn they are descendants of Pharaohs and have magic, but instead of witches and wizards there are Egyptian gods and goddesses.

I enjoyed this read and recommend this to anyone who liked Harry Potter.
