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.

I am a seventh grade English Language Arts teacher. I teach in area where the crime and poverty rate are among the highest in Pennsylvania. We are in desperate need of books for our classroom library. It is my hope that each student will be able to borrow books from my classroom to take home with them to read.

My students are from an area where the poverty and crime rates are among highest in the state. I teach three English Language Arts classes, therefore there are a wide range of abilities within my classroom. My students are absolutely amazing. I am hoping to get some of the books they have personally requested to feed their thirst for reading.
