Carter and Sadie Kane's dad is an Egyptologist with a secret plan that goes horribly wrong. An explosion shatters the ancient Rosetta stone and unleashes Set, the evil god of chaos. Set imprisons Dr. Kane in a golden coffin and Carter and Sadie must run for their lives. To save their dad, they embark on a terrifying quest from Cairo to Paris to the American South-west and discover the truth about their family's connection to the House of Life - an Egyptian temple of magic that has existed for thousands of years. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt are far from dead and buried. And so, unfortunately, are their gods.

This book is not the best book I have ever read. It was so scary it gave me nightmares I would not recommend this book for any viewers younger than 12. It was a very satanic filled book.....:(

I would rate this book with one star. I would rate it one star because this book didnʻt have enough details. This book felt like it was empty because it was just "words" without any details or explanations.
