Percy Jackson fought Greek Gods. Now the Gods of Egypt are waking in the modern world... 'I GUESS IT STARTED THE NIGHT OUR DAD BLEW UP THE BRITISH MUSEUM . . .' CARTER AND SADIE KANE'S dad is a brilliant Egyptologist with a secret plan that goes horribly wrong. An explosion shatters the ancient Rosetta stone and unleashes Set, the evil god of chaos . . . Set imprisons Dr Kane in a golden coffin and Carter and Sadie must run for their lives. To save their dad, they embark on a terrifying quest from Cairo to Paris to the American South-west and discover the truth about their family's connection to the House of Life: an Egyptian temple of magic that has existed for thousands of years. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt are far from dead and buried. And so, unfortunately, are their gods . . .

Dive in and get whisked away by a whirlwind of new adventures. Percy is all about Greek mythology, in "Heroes of Olymp" you get to know their Roman aspects, and in the "The Kane Chronicles" you get a lot closer to Egyptian gods than you might like.
