"...the Egyptian Gods are running around loose in the modern world; a bunch of magicians called the House of Life are trying to stop them; everyone hates Sadie and me; and a snake is about to swallow the sun and destroy the world." Yes, you got to love this introduction to the story. Anyway, Sadie and Carter Kane are young magicians in training. The Chaos Snake, Apophis is awakening and they have to stop him, otherwise, the world will likely come to an end. To do that, they have to find and revive Apophis's old enemy; Ra, the Egyptian Sun God. It's not so easy though. Sadie and Carter have to search the world for the Book of Ra, which is in three parts. The Book of Ra will supposedly tell them how to get Ra back. But they don't even know where it is! The siblings only have guesses. On top of that, you have your ba floating around while you sleep showing you crazy images, missing friends to save, a dwarf god in a Speedo and Hawaiian shirt that shouts "BOO!", the Spit God (wink, wink), farting camels, and other various stuff to worry about. They don't even know if when they find Ra, will he even be willing to save them? Or CAN he even save them?
