If you loved Percy Jackson and the Olympians as much as I did, then you have to check out The Red Pyramid, the first book of the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan.
After their mother's death, siblings Carter and Sadie are separated. Sadie lives with their grandparents while Carter travels the world with their father, a famous Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane. One night, Dr. Kane brings his kids together at a museum to try to set things right with the family, but instead, he unleashes an Egyptian god who banishes him into oblivion and sends Sadie and Carter running for their lives! On their dangerous journey around the world, they find the truth about their family, while escaping the waking gods of Egypt!
This book basically has everything awesome: Egyptian gods, family drama, adventure, danger! And that's not even the best part! You can go on your own adventure by solving the interactive puzzles at redpyramidpuzzle.com. It's a tricky series of puzzles you can solve using the book, the internet, and even your webcam. It may be challenging, but worth the reward!
