Rick Riordan author of the amazing Percy Jackson series is now writing about Ancient Egyptian mythology.
The first of The Kane Chronicles is The Red Pyramid. In which Carter and Sadie Kane discover who their parents really were, get slightly possessed by Isis and Horus (two Egyptian Gods) and have to save the world from being turned into burning chaos. Along the way they get to travel to London, Paris and New York, perform magic, indulge in some kick butt fight scenes, and hang out with a groovy knife wielding cat goddess. What is there not to love about a book like that?
