Rick Riordan Strikes again!

I know there are many of you out there who love love LOVE the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan.  Did you know that he has just released the first of a new series?  ‘The Red Pyramid’ is the first book in the ‘Kane Chronicles’ – a series about Carter and Sadie Kane, whose father is a brilliant Egyptologist.

With the Percy Jackson books, Rick Riordan was all about the ancient Greek gods; with the Kane Chronicles, he explores some of the dark and mysterious Egyptian gods.  In ‘The Red Pyramid’, the Egyptian god of chaos, Set, makes an appearance. If you’re into all things Egyptian, then this is the series for you!

There is also a fabulous website devoted entirely to the Kane Chronicles, where you can download iPhone apps and wallpapers, get more information about characters and keep up to date with the latest news from Rick Riordan. Click on the screen shot below to access the site!
