The Red Pyramid

The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan is a  adventure, fantasy, and Sci-fiction story.


All those and another demention, the Duat, are the places where the book takes place.  In the story there are clues to lead me that lead me to think the story takes place in the late 70's and early 80's.

    Main Characters

Carter and Sadie are the main characters in the book The Red Pyramid.  Carter is hosting the god Horus, can turn in to a falcon, and can do combat magic.  Sadie is hosting the god Isis, can turn in to a kite (bird type), and specializes in portals.

Supporting Characters

Uncle Amos has not been around Carter and Sadie much, but he is one more reason to defeat Set.  He has been captured by Set.  He will eventually get free but how?  Read the book to find out!

Bast helps Carter and Sadie defeat Set because she risked her life to defeat the Crocodile god.  She also help them defeat a lot of other evil gods.

Julius is Carter and Sadie's dad that is captured by Set and is Carter and Sadie's main reason, besides saving the world, to keep going and stop Set.

Point of Veiw

The point of view in the story is in first person, but Carter and Sadie switch off telling the story every couple of chapters.


The theme of the story The Red Pyramid is to never give up and you will achieve anything you set your mind to.  I believe this because Carter and Sadie had to climb some huge mountains in the beginning of the story that they couldn't climb then, but they did climb them at the end of the story.

Who I would Recommend this book to

I would recommend this book to 5th graders or above who will make a commitment to this book because it is 516 pages long.  The book is also a adventure, fantasy, and      sci-fiction with magic and Egyptian gods that can be inside a humans.


The summary of the story The Red Pyramid is that there are two siblings, Carter and Sadie, who are hosting gods named Horus and Isis. Their mom died when they were six trying to release a god named Bast to look after Carter and Sadie.  Julius, the dad, summons the god Osiris who is the god of the dead so he could bring back the mom from the dead.  What he didn't know is that he also summoned 5 other gods at the same time and one of them was evil.  The evil god's name is Set.  Set imprisoned the dad with the god Osiris inside of him, so Osiris is trapped too.  Set is so evil that he wants to rule the world and destroy it.  Carter and Sadie have to learn and be very good at magic to stop Set, free their dad, and save the world.  If you want to learn more, read the book!
