The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
If your kids like Percy Jackson, they will like this new series by Rick Riordan.
The Red Pyramid is the first book in the series and my son is obsessed with it.
As a parent, I like that it features a brother/sister duo. There is a ton of action in this book and it will be hard to put down. I’m enjoying it just as much as my son.
Since their mother’s death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane. One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a “research experiment” at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives. From the creator of the hit Percy Jackson series.
