Rick Rordan has done it again; he has created a block-buster novel that's sweeping the world. In this fresh take on Egypt mythology, two siblings named Sadie and Carter are thrust into the magical world of myths when they see their father swallowed up by the powerful gods trapped in the Rosetta Stone. The ancient '5' brothers that ruled the world as gods have been released from their prisons and are taking the modern world by storm. It's up to the siblings to find out how to develop their 'powers', watch their cat (who's secretly possessed by a god) kick monster butt, make new friends with an uncle they forgot they had, discover a secret underground fortress, and make the ultimate decision; will they chose to save the world, or their missing father?
In this breathtaking fast-passed book, pages will fly by faster than you know. This is an outstanding book that's one of my favorites. Read it and it will be one of yours, too.
