Red Pyramid (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.228

The Red Pyramid is the first in The Kane Chronicles series. This series features protagonists who are descended from Egyptian ancestors.

Summary Of The Book

After writing about Greek Gods and demigods, Rick Riordan turned his attention to Egypt for a new series. The Red Pyramid is the first of a series where the main characters are descended from Pharaohs and Egyptian magicians.

Carter Kane is fourteen and he lives and travels around the world with his Egyptologist father, Julius Kane. He has a younger sister Sadie, who is twelve years old. Sadie lives with her grandparents in London. Julius Kane takes Carter to London to visit Sadie and spend time together as a family during Christmas. After picking up Sadie, Julius takes his children to visit the British Museum. On the way, the children see their father speaking to a man they do not know.

At the museum, Julius, who is actually an Egyptian magician, tries to summon the Egyptian God Osiris. In the process he also releases the other Egyptian Gods born on the Demon Days, Horus, Nephthys, Set and Isis. Set imprisons Julius. The stunned children who are witnesses to the incident are taken into custody by the British police. However, they are rescued from further trouble by the mysterious stranger they saw their father talking to some time earlier.

The man turns out to be Amos Kane, their uncle. He takes them to their family home, a huge mansion. He tells them they can explore the house, but to stay out of the library. So, naturally, the two go to the library. Set’s army begins an attack on the mansion. However, Sadie’s cat Muffin, who is actually the cat goddess Bast, saves the children. They later meet Zia Rashid who also helps the kids escape.

They are taken to Egypt, to the House Of Life, to be trained as magicians. But, when the chief of the magicians dies and a new one takes over, the children are seen as a threat and they have to flee.

The Red Pyramid then takes the two children around the world, from Egypt to Paris to Washington, as they try to find a way to stop Set and rescue their father.

THE GODS OF EGYPT ARE HERE!!!!!!!!!!

As usual, the book has a fast paced story which is very typical of Rick Riordan. However, the joy which you get reading Percy Jackson series, is a bit missing. Though the idea and concept of Egyptian gods is good and the description of each god is a bit fun to read. also, the characters are well imagined and formed. Overall, it is a good book which lacks a bit of the "full potential" of Rick Riordan.

THE KANES ARE A CHRONICLE!

I BOUGHT THIS BOOK RECENTLY AND I READ IT.IT WAS VERY MUCH LIKE RICK RIORDAN,AND AFTER HEOES OF OLYMPUS , I FEEL THIS IS A LITTLE BETTER SINCE ITS A NEW STORYLINE.

PROS : NEW STORY , GOOD DESCRIPTION , WORTHY OF 500 PAGES

CONS : NO OL' PERCY JACKSON EXCITEMENT.THAT'S ALL.

DON'T MISS IT.I CAN GIVE A SCORE OF 4.75.

Kane Chronicles

I opened it and I enjoyed every single page of it. Seriously, take it from me- Rick Riordan is a mythology master :) From Greek mythology to Egyptian mythology, this guy sure knows how to get us around mythology. The story revolves around our two Kane heroes, Sadie and Carter. Older of the two, Carter stayed with his father and travelled around museums, gaining ample Egyptian Knowledge. Sadie stayed with her grandparents on the bank of the river Thames. She is so not into learning, but hey, when you have dangerous quests to complete, it doesn't hurt to learn!

The Gods are unleashed, and Chaos is rising . Soon, it will overcome Ma'at ( order). The giant serpent Apophis ( god of chaos ) will swallow the sun ( the weak God Ra) and only Sadie and Carter can save the world.
With their adventures in three volumes, ou can kick back and enjoy...

Another Blast from Rick Riordian

I bought it just because the author was Rick Riordian
and i hated the cover... But it was AWESOME!!

Greek Mythology.. now Egyptian!!! One of the best mythology books ever.... You can almost imagine yourself to be one of the protagonist!! Carter Kane and Sadie Kane both give an excellent view for the readers of both genders to install themselves into the action.

Rick Riordan is Rick Riordan!

FIRST OF ALL HATS OFF FLIPKART.

If you are a Rick Riordan fan then you must have this book. I gave it a star less because it is not as good as Percy Jackson, of course. Its not at all about Greek mythology or Roman mythology, its about...

STORY LINE IS TOO BASIC

There is nothing to speak about flipkart, the deliveries are always before then the time expected.

RICK RIORDAN'S THE RED PYRAMID is a obvious resultant of author's great effort and research on Egyptian mythology. The story here is fast moving, leaving no hidden curiosity to readers. Story line...

satisfying story

I was disappointed since flipkart delivered the product a little late. The plot is good but not as gripping as the Percy Jackson series. A lot of punches but according to me it has failed. Overall I would say Rick Riordan has accomplished another brilliant story but it lacks the fun, humor and ha... (View complete review)
