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. On Christmas Eve, Sadie and Carter are reunited when their father brings them to the British Museum, however all does not go according to plan and soon they discover that the gods of Ancient Egypt are waking, and the worst of them- Set- has a frightening scheme.
The siblings must embark on a dangerous journey to save their father- a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family and its links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs. From the author of the blockbuster best-selling series Percy Jackson and the Olympians comes this first installment of the Kane Chronicles, combining nonstop action, humor, and suspense in an epic tale of loyalty and heroism.
