The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan

Carter and Sadie have been separated since Sadie’s sixth birthday. Carter has traveled the world with their dad Julius Kane and Sadie lives with her grandparents, having a normal school life.

When they meet again, their dad brings them to a museum. He releases the Egyptian god Set, who captures him and forces the siblings to flee without their father.

They find out that the Egyptian gods are awakening and Set has his sights on the pair. The two travel across the globe to stop Set and uncover secrets about their family.

I can’t say that I really enjoyed this book. The plot itself was okay. I’m not a huge fan of Egyptian gods but I decided to give this book a try.

The characters weren’t well written it my opinion. I can’t really tell what their personalities are and they are not really that memorable. I didn’t really enjoy them talking to each other with this…mike. There “bickering” made me distracted and was kind of pointless.

I couldn’t connect myself to the book or the characters. Whenever there was a fighting scene in this book, I didn’t really sense any danger at all. I was always distracted throughout reading this book and had to drag myself back to reading.

Overall, I was kind of like: meh when I finished reading. 2 out of 5.
