It’s an exciting week for fans of Percy Jackson and Rick Riordan! The Lightning Thief movie is coming out this Friday, February 12th. Are you going to see it?
Also, if you loved the Percy Jackson series and were sad when it ended, Rick Riordan is writing a NEW series! It’s called The Kane Chronicles, and the first book–The Red Pyramid–is coming out in May of 2010! The series follows the adventures of two kids, Carter and Sadie Kane, whose father accidentally unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives.
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.
If you can’t wait until May (and who can!?) you can read the first chapter online at The Kane Chronicles. Check it out!
