This excellent novel is the first in a new series by Rick Riordan, author of the fabulous Percy Jackson books. I absolutely loved it! Jackson has a real gift for creating young characters who, despite having amazing abilities and being placed in unlikely situations, are very real. In this case, the book is narrated by Carter Kane and his sister, Sadie. Their father, Julius Kane, is an acclaimed Egyptologist, and after he disappears, they discover that they have more links to the magical world of ancient Egypt than they ever would've imagined. Gods, magicians, resourceful kids, and a baboon named Khufu--- what more could you ask for? I can't wait until the next book comes out! (It's scheduled for spring 2011... How shall I stand the wait?) Lots of fun and highly recommended. Five stars.
