The Red Pyramid (YA)
This is the first book in a new science fiction/fantasy series. Carter and Sadie are brother and sister; their parents are experts on Egyptian history. Their mother dies when they are young and Sadie stays with her maternal grandparents while Carter travels the world with their father. At the beginning of the book, their dad brings them to a museum and that is when things begin to really get interesting. Carter and Sadie are connected to Egyptian Gods in ways that they did not even know were possible. This book has great action and well written characters; the author obviously research Egyptian history well. This book will keep readers engrossed, even at its chunky 500 plus page length. This book was on the book list for the science fiction/fantasy month of the YA literature course that I am taking; I borrowed this book from the library.
