Waiting on Wednesday! (1)

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Never done this meme before, but I think this is the perfect time to do it, because I really can't wait for this one to be released!

Summary from Amazon.com
"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."

Percy Jackson and the Olympians is one of my favorite series. Having finished the final book, The Last Olympian, I'm quite sad I won't be able to read about Percy Jackson and his friends' adventures anymore. At the same time, I'm quite excited that there is a Camp-Half Blood series 2 coming up! It's not to be released until Fall of this year though. The great news is: that I'm still going to get my dose of some good writing and awesome story telling from one of my new favorite authors, Rick Riordan. When, you ask? Well, very soon, actually.
This time, Rick Riordan generally centers his new series, The Kane Chronicles, around Egyptian mythology -- another one I find so interesting aside from Greek mythology. The first book in the series, The Red Pyramid, is to be released on May 4, 2010. That's next week already! I'm very excited for this one, and just can't wait!

Check out Rick Riordan's website and his blog.

  4. The Red Pyramid is one I'm really looking forward to as well. I am sure I will enjoy it but I bet I'll like the Camp Halfblood books better.
