Rick Riordan has made a living writing interesting, relatable characters for a middle-school audience, and this book is no different. The plot revolves around Carter and Sadie Kane, a pair of teens who find out that they are “blood of the pharaohs,” the most powerful descendants of ancient Egyptian kings to be born in 3,000 years. Their mother died under mysterious circumstances six years before the book begins, and when their wandering-archeologist of a father tries to revive the Egyptian gods in a bid to “make things right,” the siblings are launched onto a path of power and world-destroying danger. The story's first person narration is passed between the siblings, which highlights the emotional heart of the novel. This also makes it extremely accessible to both genders. Fans of the Percy Jackson or Harry Potter series will likely enjoy book one of The Kane Chronicles.
