I’m sure that a lot of you know about Rick Riordan and his stories about Percy, but have you read his stories about siblings Carter and Sadie?

The Kane Chronicles follows the siblings on their adventures with Egyptian mythology. The series has similar themes to The Lightning Thief such as the importance of relationships but this series focuses more on the importance of family rather than the importance of friendship, which is seen in The Lightning Thief.

Carter and Sadie are siblings who have been separated from each other since they were young. After their father disappears, the two learn about their family background. Similarly to The Lightning Thief series, this series has comedic parts to lighten the more serious themes.

This series is complete with The Red Pyramid, The Throne of Fire and The Serpent’s Shadow. All three books can be found in McKinley’s library.
