Goodreads Synopsis : 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. Sadie has just what Carter wants—school friends and a chance at a “normal” life. But Carter has just what Sadie longs for—time with their father. After six years of living apart, the siblings have almost nothing in common. Until now.
On Christmas Eve, Sadie and Carter are reunited when their father brings them to the British Museum, with a promise that he’s going to “make things right.” 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.
Soon Carter and Sadie discover that the gods of Ancient Egypt are waking, and the worst of them—Set—has a frightening scheme. To save their father, they must embark on a dangerous journey—a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family and its links to the House of Life, a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.
My Review : Guys if you have read the Percy Jackson series so you all will also like these series of Rick Riordan. these series is based on Egyptian gods, goddess and the magicians. the story is based on the brother and sister where they both led a different life after theirs mothers death where Carter always travel with his father in the archaeology sites and museums and Sadie is living with her grandparents in London. When both the brother sister meet then the kayos starts. First their dad is sealed into a coffin, five gods are released from a stone, unexpectedly Sadie’s cat turn into a goddess (Bath). I really like this adventure of brother and sister, it shows how they created their bond of siblings and how they learn to trust each other. But like every brother and sister they have fight and show their abilities and try to undermine who is better or who is not. Carter is protective and sarcastic for his sister. And like all the sisters in the world annoying and protective. Guys I think you guys should start this series and read it if you guys are fans of Rick Riordan’s Books.
