Egyptian Percy submitted by marshd on June 30, 2010, 10:59am Essentially, Riordan's new series is a parallel to Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Instead of Greek gods, we get Egyptian ones, and instead of being the children of gods, the main characters are hosts for them. The story still contains a strong boy and girl character, though they are brother and sister this time. It also looks as if the next books will contain recruitment, just as Percy Jackson was recruited. Also, as with his interpretation of the Greek gods, Riordan's explanations of the Egyptian ones are quite well-founded and bordering on pretty darn accurate.

So, if you liked Percy Jackson, you'll like the Kanes as well. The writing style is similarly sassy and amusing. However, if you're looking for something different from Riordan, you won't find it.

The Red Pyramid submitted by Zhengyang1022 on June 18, 2011, 10:37am The Red Pyramid is a book like percy jackson but about egypt. The Red Pyramid is a amazing fantasy and has a lot of amazing things like percy jackson too. The red pyramid is really good and you should read it

red pyramid submitted by foxridgect on June 25, 2011, 2:21pm This time, Riordan wrote an awesome book on egyptian gods, much like the percy jackson series, but they were egyptian instead of greek. Still, it was awesome!

Amazing! submitted by Smiles on July 5, 2011, 9:43pm This book is great! In this book, Carter and Sadie find out about Egyptian gods when their father dies. Will they be able to stop the god of chaos?

Terrific! submitted by Memoria1224 on August 9, 2011, 5:14pm This is an awesome action-packed adventure! I recommend it to everyone who likes the Percy Jackson series.

Red Pyramid submitted by marisal on August 11, 2011, 10:09am This book was a great book.

Mythology submitted by krishnansuresh on August 15, 2011, 9:42pm Mythology once again from Rick Riordan! Carter and Sadie Kane unleash the gods out of Duat

awesome! submitted by DoodleBob on June 17, 2012, 8:23pm an amazing start to a wonderful series!

Cool! submitted by gabi valderrama on June 24, 2012, 2:55pm I think Rick Riordan is an amazing and talented writer. This edition to the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series is fun and adventurous, yet educational. The Red Pyramid is a great introduction to the Kane Chronicles, a series in which can't be compared to any other series, because of it's greatness!

Loved it submitted by madeleinebatra on July 2, 2012, 10:34am Awesome start to the Kane chronicles series

Rick Riordan submitted by stkloves on July 3, 2012, 3:23pm I've read a lot of books by Rick Riordan, and this one I loved just as much as the others. The Red Pyramid is filled with action and adventure, it always kept my attention when I read it with the amazing journey Carter and Sadie Kane go on. I love this book because of the character's personalities and because I learn new things about Egyption mythology.

I love Egyptian mythology submitted by songi on July 8, 2012, 4:04pm Even before this book, I loved Egyptian mythology. Now, after reading this book, I love it even more.

good start submitted by vadnala on July 11, 2012, 4:11pm good start to series, kind of cool like PJO but with Egyptian mythology

great book submitted by yafei on July 28, 2012, 12:37pm this is a great book, but I don't really like the 2nd or 3rd.

another great book by riordan submitted by bookworm12345 on June 16, 2013, 4:44pm the red pyramid is another great book by rick riordan. Im so into egyptian mythology now!

Good way to learn submitted by bpascoe on June 17, 2013, 9:15am Rick Riordan does a great job making a book fun to read, but also learning from it too. :D

Nice submitted by alexaeaster on June 17, 2013, 7:09pm This is a good way to prepare for mythology in school.

Ok submitted by Bigal2212 on June 19, 2013, 5:49pm Not that good

Egyptian Mythology submitted by lec.dank on June 23, 2013, 5:13pm Great book. Basically Egyptian version of the Percy Jackson series. Very funny, and sometimes dramatic. Surprising plot twist. I would recommend it.

Greek myths, Egyptian myths, what next? submitted by xiwang on June 30, 2013, 5:35pm Another great book from Riordan, Rick now explores the Egyptian myths instead of the Greek ones. Remarkable kicker to the series.

great submitted by unknown on August 7, 2013, 8:20am I love that rick riordan decided to do Egyptian mythology!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great start submitted by shreyan2004 on June 24, 2014, 11:57am This is a great start to the series. It's funny and action packed. The second one isn't as good though.

Awesome series submitted by wendylawrencemorgan on July 9, 2014, 7:24pm I liked this almost better than Percy. Great brother and sister characters, the fast-paced action you expect from Riordan, and really great imaginings of what Egyptian gods would look like if they were still hanging around. Fun.

Amazing submitted by Merlin800 on August 5, 2014, 9:49am This book is terrific!!! There is lots of magic and mythology.

Great Book!! submitted by i'm a blobfish on June 13, 2015, 12:00pm So good for reading!

#1 submitted by unknown on June 22, 2015, 2:08pm I love Sadie and Carter's point of view and how they argue! I read this 3 times!

Good submitted by elliot4321 on July 6, 2015, 3:01pm OK start for new series, but not worthy of a reread.

Sadie & Carter submitted by Alex Hannah on July 25, 2016, 8:52am Isis and Horus are using Sadie and Carter to save the world.I think this is a good book.

Awesome! submitted by Mharrgtn on June 17, 2017, 6:18pm This book was very well written and I cannot wait to read the next in the series.

MY NEW FAVE submitted by leilawilder on June 20, 2017, 7:12am this is the best book ever!
5 stars!

Fantastic submitted by Margaret Florence on June 21, 2017, 4:50am This book is wonderful. I wouldn't change a single thing about it.

This book is great! submitted by Wonderpantsdance on July 22, 2018, 10:25am I haven’t finished this book yet, but I am already so excited to read the other books in this trilogy!

Good Book submitted by shailu on June 18, 2019, 4:33pm I loved this one and can't wait to read the next two books in the trilogy!

great book submitted by Sadie Cutler on June 20, 2019, 3:54pm I like that Rick Riordan does stories based on different myths and somehow makes sad things funny at the same time.

The red pyramid submitted by c_zhang on June 21, 2019, 1:28am This was a really strong start to a great series!

awesome series submitted by RowPio on June 24, 2019, 10:02pm this is my favorite series out of all of the series Rick Riordan has written. Sadie is my hero<3.

love this book! submitted by Pia peanut on June 26, 2019, 7:11am My first introduction to Rick Riordan and I owe it much because of that. fantastic story with well thought out characters and awesome mythology. Loved it!

love it! submitted by rawan on June 30, 2019, 10:46am This had a intro like the percy jackson series and I loved it!

Good book submitted by jasonc1177 on July 31, 2019, 7:44pm One of the best books I've ever read

The red submitted by smr on July 2, 2020, 10:46pm Like the red

Not as good as Percy Jackson submitted by chowcy on August 28, 2020, 6:05pm Like, I know I shouldn't compare series, but I started reading this because I really enjoyed the Percy Jackson series. This series seems a lot more complicated, and less cohesive. Maybe Egyptian mythology just makes less sense, but I found myself unable to grasp much about Egyptian mythology, whereas reading Percy Jackson helps you absorb Greek Mythology very well.

Its okay submitted by angie. on July 21, 2021, 10:14am It has a lot of Greek Mythology, but I would give it 5/10

A+ submitted by nirmala on July 27, 2021, 9:37pm A must read.....
