I was a bit dissapointed when reading this book. I love love LOVE Rick Riordan and Percy Jackson and the Olympians is one of my favourite series ever. On top of that, I was an Egypt freak growing up. So naturally I was really excited when I got this book.The plot and the writing, of course, are amazing! It's a bit like Percy at times but Rick Riordan has a way with words that really pulls you in.Unfortunately, I found it very hard to get through Sadie's chapters. She was such a spoiled brat! However, I did see a slight change at the end. I am going to continue with the series and I'm looking forward to seeing how much her character develops throughout the books.
