The Red Pyramid

This is an okay book written by Rick Riordan. Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane. But while Carter’s been homeschooled, his younger sister, Sadie, has been living with their grandparents in London. On Christmas Eve, Sadie and Carter are reunited when their father brings them to the British Museum. But all does not go according to plan: Carter and Sadie watch as Julius summons a mysterious figure, who quickly banishes their father and causes a fiery explosion.

This is the first novel in The Kane Chronicles series. The idea of having a brother and sister who are multiracial came from two siblings that the author taught. The third largest Egyptian pyramid is known as the Red Pyramid.
