This series follows siblings Carter and Sadie. They learn they are the decedents of famous Pharaohs and magicians. This allows them to have the ability to channel the gods. When their father accidentally releases a handful of Egyptian gods, the twins must find a way to master their magical powers, train knew magicians, and the stop the world from ending.
I am reviewing this entire because I inhaled theses books. I absolutely adore Rick Riordan's writing. He has a great way of introducing so much information without it overwhelming the story. We were introduced to so many Egyptians gods and history, it was very informative.
I also loved the diversity in this book. Carter and Sadie are mixed race. Their father is black, their mother is white. The siblings don't actually look similar as Carter takes after their father. Riordan also gave them a different family dynamic. Carter grew up traveling their world with his father who is an Egyptologist. Sadie grew up in England with her grandparent from her mother's side.
The first book really was about the siblings getting to know one another.
I have nothing but praise for this series. I loved the friendships, character diversity and alternating POVs. It was such a fun series and it is a wonderful addition to my Riordan collection.
I give this book series an A.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
