I'm six chapters into Riordan's The Red Pyramid

the first of his Egyptian-mythology books, which share an Earth with his Greek-mythology books, and I'm kind of weirded out by the claim that the Egyptian gods are so dangerous that Egyptian magicians have spent the last two thousands years binding and banishing them, while the Greek gods get to bop around doing basically whatever they like. My knowledge of Egyptian myth is not deep, granted, but I never got the impression that its gods were qualitatively different from any other pantheon that actively involved itself in mortals' lives, you know?

I know several of you have read and liked these, so tell me whether it's worth continuing?
