Summary taken directly from Goodreads:
An ancient Egyptian magician named Setne has come back from the dead and is experimenting with Egyptian and Greek magic, trying to become a god himself. He’s so powerful and tricky that all four-Percy, Annabeth, Carter, and Sadie-have to team up against him. But their usual weapons and spells aren’t going to cut it this time. Will the heroes be taken down by a wannabe god who looks like Elvis, or will they rise to the challenge?
“I’d have to play this smart … which was not my usual style.”
I am really liking these Kane kids. I think I need to read those books in the future, I want to know more about them and about Egyptian magic.
Setne was the usual funny, badly dressed, villain and Percy knows how to deal with that kind of characters. Percy and Annabeth are a powerful couple, they complement each other and that’s what makes them go through every ugly situation they’ve encountered!
“That’s – that’s not fair,’ Sadie said, her voice trembling. ‘Tempting me with destruction.”
Do I recommend it? Yes, Percy is usually a lot of fun to read and Sadie Kane is one hilarious young girl.
