New Rick Riordan book

Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and a contributor to the 39 Clues series, is launching a new set of adventures with “The Red Pyramid,” book one of the Kane Chronicles series.

The book is scheduled to be released on May 4 (and yes, it’s on our May order list here at the library!), but you can read the opening paragraphs of the book right now by visiting this page at Amazon.com and downloading it.

The sneak peek can go to a Kindle or other compatible device, or you can download the Kindle App for your PC. It’s free and easy! Just click the link on the right-hand side of the page, about halfway down.

Enjoy!
