Waiting on Wednesday - 2/17

Okay "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week my WoW book is "The Red Pyramid" (The Kane Chronicles, Book 1) by Rick Riordan.  If you haven't read Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan you should; every book in that five book series is awesome.  So, I have been waiting with bated breath to see what Riordan writes next and here it is.  His next series is going to be the Kane Chronicles.  Looks pretty awesome to me!

Synopsis (from "Since their mother’s death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane.

One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a "research experiment" at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives.

Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them--Set--has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe--a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family, and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs."
