Ye Gods!

USA Today‘s Bob Minzesheimer greets the first book in Rick Riordan’s new series The Kane Chronicles: Book One: The Red Pyramid, which released yesterday. In this new series, the author has switched from the Greek gods of the Percy Jackson series to ancient Egyptian gods, accidentally set loose in the modern world. Holds, of course, are heavy in most libraries, and so is ordering, with ratios of 3 or 4 to 1 copy ordered.

Two more books are planned in the series, to be issued in Spring ’11 and ’12.

For a preview, you can listen to the first chapter on iTunes, or read read the first chapter here.
