*She goes to her Grandma’s and Grandpa’s house to find that a god and goddess (Babi and Nekkebet) have taken over her grandparent’s and used them as hosts.
*Runs from them and finds Liz and Emma on the way.
*They meet Bes the dwarf god. Now Bes was as tall as a dwarf. He had a very hairy chest. He was often found wearing a Hawaiian shirt and shorts but when he was in battle or trying to scare something he had Speedos on and yelled BOO! Bes scared the god’s away.
*Sadie meets up with Carter, says goodbye to Liz and Emma and are on their way to Russia to find a sacred scroll, needed to find and awaken the sun god Ra.
*Go to Vlad Menshikov’s mansion get in a fight with Vlad Menshikov he summons a tjesu heru. *Carter and Sadie battle the tjesu heru and carter gets bitten by it.

*The tjesu heru’s bite is very lethal and Carter passed out and nearly dies.
Get into Bes’s Mercedes. Bes drove like a maniac and made them drive off the bridge.

*They go to a tomb and meet a roman ghost Mad Claude.

*Find Ra. Ra comes back very wrinkly and old.
*Get back on boat.
*Stop at Aaru, Ra’s pit stop in the night.
*Realize that they can’t get to the last house in time so they gamble for 3 hours from the moon god Khonsu. Summary *Imagery and simile- He looked about twenty, thin and tall and kind of glamorous. His face was totally human, but his irises were silver. His head was shaven except for a glossy black ponytail on one side of his head, like Ancient Egyptian youth used to wear. His silvery suit looked to have been tailored in Italy (I only know that because Amos and my dad both paid a lot of attention to suits.) The fabric shimmered like some bizarre mix of silk and aluminum foil. His shirt was black and collarless, and several pounds of platinum chains hung around his neck. The biggest piece of bling was a silver crescent amulet. When his fingers drummed on the back of his chair, his rings and Platinum Rolex flashed. If I’d seen him in the mortal world, I might’ve gussed he was a young Native American Billionaire casino owner. But here in the Duat, with that crescent-shaped amulet around his neck…
“Moon pie!” Ra cackled with delight.
“You’re Khonsu,” I guessed. “The moon god.” Pg 384
*Simile- He smiled at me, his silver eyes flashing like a shark’s. Pg 387 *Bes’s soul gets devoured by Khonsu but the kids earn enough time to get to the 12th house
*Get to the 12th house and see daylight at the other end. There is a hole that does not belong in the tunnel and Sadie, Carter and Ra fall down the hole and find Apophis, where they are forced to battle the giant snake like creature……..
*Do they defeat him? Read the book and find out. Bes gave him a toothy grin. “Depends on what you mean, kid. Every great empire is a wannabe Egypt. Having Egyptian stuff makes them feel important. That’s why you’ve got ‘new’ Egyptian artifacts in Rome, Paris, London- you name it. That obelisk in Washington-“ Pg 146-147 Favorite Quote Genera Historical fiction Theme Always have hope and never give up Recommend? Yes! This book teaches many good life lessons and has a ton of literary devices. Rick Riordan describes all of the characters very well so you can get a good idea of what all the characters look like. Read the book but start on book one
