In this exciting second installment of the three-book series, Carter and Sadie, offspring of the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane, embark on a worldwide search for the Book of Ra, but the House of Life and the gods of chaos are determined to stop them.
For 14-year-old Carter and his 12-year-old sister, Sadie, ancient Egyptian gods aren't part of an archeologically interesting dead religion, but a host of occasionally terrifying gods, some who are bent on their destruction. With their father trapped in a magical underworld, the pair started out their quest trying to free him, but things have gotten quite a bit more complicated. Along with magically adept trainees Jaz and Walt, the siblings are trying to locate the Book of Ra so they can stop the world from ending in five days. Of course, the gods are hot on their trail, and their explosive (literally!) attempt to "borrow" a relic from the Brooklyn Museum got things off to a bad start. Will the kids be able to pull off the impossible? This is the second book in the Kane Chronicles trilogy by Rick Riordan, author of the bestselling Percy Jackson series.
