Book Suggestion of the Week

Well, hello again! I suppose you’re here for a suggestion? Oh, well, if I have to….

 

                                               The Kane Chronicles

                                                 Rick Riordan

I love all of his book:

 

You probably guessed that this is a mythology book, right? Well good for you! It is!

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.

Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them–Set has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe — a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family, and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.

Pretty exciting, right?

The Kane Chronicles is a trilogy (all the book are published) and a very good one at that. I’m usually a fan of Greek mythology, but I’ll make an exception here. Sadie is that spunky girl you always want to read about and Carter is the bookworm everybody relates to.

It’s fast-paced and filled with sarcasm and jokes at every turn. A must-read for anyone within the ages of 9-99

Rick Riordan is also the author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series (Greek mythology) as well as Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer (Norse Mythology). Basically, he a mythology wizard. He’s an expert at taking a new spin on the Gods and their kids. I would highly suggest him to everyone and anyone.
