    Do you like books with lots of history and action? The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan is a perfect book for you. On one of their infrequent visits, siblings and protagonists Carter and Sadie are joined by their Egyptologist father Julius Kane to take a trip to the British Museum in a modern London. During the trip, Julius mistakenly blew up the Rosetta Stone, releasing 5 imprisoned Egyptian gods: Osiris, Isis, Horus, Nephthys, and Set. Set, Egyptian God of Chaos and War and main antagonist in the book, imprisons Julius in a tomb and makes a cryptic remark to Sadie and Carter before exiting. When the police came to investigate and question witnesses, they decided that Carter and Sadie were responsible and were deported to the United States with their uncle Amos. There, they find out that they come from a dynasty of Egyptian magicians and they need to use their magic to help unlock Julius from Set’s tomb. I recommend The Red Pyramid to anyone who's willing to spend the time, as well as anyone who is interested in Egyptian mythology and lore. The book is around 550 pages, so if you're really interested (which I think you will be) it should only take a week to read cover to cover. I enjoyed it because I really like all of the above.

    gablas's book review was featured in Rip Tide (Dark Life, Book 2).
    It's the future. Kat Falls’ second book, Rip Tide, takes place in a world where sea levels have risen and half of the world’s population have been driven out of their homes. So now, most people live underwater. Selling kelp and diving for sunken treasure, Ty’s family has it pretty good. Until one day, while making a trade with the captain of Drift, one of the largest townships in the ocean, Ty’s parents get kidnapped. With his close friend Gemma, a girl who ran away from her home on the surface, Ty tries to track down Shade, Gemma’s brother, and ask for his help. But Ty soon learns that this is not the only problem. Someone is anchoring townships, causing the hundreds of people inside to either suffocate or freeze to death. Searching the vast corners of the ocean, and encountering new allies and enemies, they soon find out that the REAL enemy is the one you never expect. I enjoyed both Dark Life and Rip Tide, both give a fun and adventurous look at the ocean, and also a sort of precautionary warning about what COULD happen if sea levels get too high. But read Dark Life first, because you'll be really confused about what's going on if you don’t This book is jam-packed full of twists and turns, and definitely a must-read.
