Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Fast paced and good story!"

    This is a good choice for a long, funny, charming, exciting and educational story about magic, siblings and Egyptian gods. The narrators where a little annoying for my taste, but I’m too old for this book..!
    I loved it non the less!
    This is really a good listen,! It was my first audible book and I don’t regret it for a second.
    If you are looking for a book for your teens, get this one.
    If you’re looking for an easy going book that will make you laugh, cry and cheer, this is it.

    I enjoyed it a lot!

    "Fun!"

    Lots of fun, and I learned some Egyptian history! Katherine Kellgren is just a brilliant narrator. I seek out and listen to any book she narrates! On to Book 2!

    "Good Series"

    I really enjoyed this book. I listened to the Percy Jackson series and what is available in the Heroes of Olympus series. I listen to these series while I work. They are easy to listen to and entertaining enough to help me through a repetitive job. I would recommend and listened to the whole series.

    "One Narrator too many...."

    I absolutely adore Katherine Kellgren! The producers should never have had Kevin Free narrate as Carter he sounds effeminate can not do an english accent to save his life and ought not to have tried. Katherine has such a wide and diverse vocal ability it would have been a joy to listen to her narrate the entire book. Good story that was spoiled slightly by a poor choice of male narrator.

    "Red Pyramid"

    I love the voices of both characters. The voices are spot-one with the different personalities of the brother and sister. My 12-year old daughter is reading and listening to the book after my recommendation (and enjoying it).

    "Is there nothing that this man cannot dream up?"

    He is a true Master of his craft. A Steven King or R.L.Stein for the little ones. These are stories I can read to my little girl. That is a true blessing. Thank you Sir.

    "My kids reallllly enjoyed this book!!"

    My kids ages 9 and 12 really enjoyed this book, so many thanks. It is creative and entertaining and definitely for kids, also grown-ups with lots and lots of patience. Listening to kids books with my kids is a lot of fun, sometimes even more fun than listening to my own books. My kids really loved this book. For grown ups after the thousandths time of imminent danger being upon them with no possible way out... well it would be nice if the author followed his own boundaries of the world he's created. Very well narrated good ideas suggest you give it a try.

    "Love it!"

    After enjoying the Percy Jackson series, and being somewhat disappointed by the "39 Clues-Book 1", I was unsure how this one would sound. I was surprised to find that I like this one more than the Percy Jackson series, mostly due to Katherine Kellgren's narration. Funny, with interesting Egyptian facts, I am anxiously awaiting the next book in this series!

    "Terrible narration"

    Good story but I couldn't listen to more than 1 chapter due to the awful narration of both the male & female.
