    B 74% | More than Satisfactory Notes Frantic hollow and artificial And no Parenthetical bickering does not reinforce presence it just sounds contrived

    Update I've recently degraded this to a one star from a two when I realized how much of a disappointment it was This review is as a result a lot nicer than I'd like it to be If you'd like just add a lot unnecessary cursing and asides about that idiotic taco sauce showdown Sigh Now I can't stop thinking about that goddamn battle any Damn itIf you're thinking Oh it's just Percy Jackson with Egyptian Gods you'd be correct But in it's own weird way it's a bit At one point there's a little bit of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments some Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott and even a tad bit of Harry Potter thrown in And if you get though the first 200 300 pages you may enjoy yourselfNow is it worth having to get through that to find the good stuff? I'm not entirely sure The set up is promising as the two narrators and protagonists relay their plan to take an entire record of their adventure and then hide it in a locker and some school for the right person to find If you read the opening chapter of The Lightning Thief and loved its warning you'll thoroughly enjoy this But it uickly became gimmicky to me as Carter and Sadie take turns telling the tale they also interrupt each other to crack awfully corny jokes and spout witty one liners I think it would have been better to leave that narrative device to the opening and closing Otherwise it distracts you from what is going on in the plot which is uit important than Sadie telling Carter how hilarious he was when a bird pooped on his faceAnd on the note of the characters I'm all for alternating chapters between character perspectives I've always loved it and find it highly effective as a way to open up the plot But here well the characters speak a tad to similarly I mean very early on Sadie uses her British accent heavily but later in the book its almost completely gone to the point where i had to check the top of the page to make sure i was reading a Sadie chapter It wouldn't happen too often but when it did i always felt a tinge of frustration And it was always 2 Carter chapters then 2 Sadie chapters It seemed like an odd way to set everything up why not just do 11?The only other thing that bothered me was the length It took way too long to do what The Lightning Thief did in under 400 pages Don't get me wrong they do have fun battles with a pretty cool magic system But i found the battles went by too fast one God they literally best by stuffing it with salsa so it turns into a cow The most work Carter does is open huge vats of the hot Mexican sauceOn the positive side Sadie and Carter do grow to respect one another and become pretty likable in the end I still refuse to believe their age 12 and 14? It just didn't fit their personalities to me but i guess they're mature for their ageAnd on the reference above to all the other books I'm not saying he copied from them i simply meant there were similarities in story characters and plot locations Like the old church that Clary and her paranormal friends stay at in City of Bones is uite similar to the First Nome in this book The twins from the Nicholas Flamel books have a similar relationship that Carter and Sadie have albeit far mature And the magic system felt inspired by JK Rowling's famous teen magician with similar uses of wands the need to speak spells and generally same types of spells fire wind ice light etcI guess the big uestion is will i read the seuels? And again i'm forced to say I'm not entirely sure There is a great twist in the end and i'd love to see how it plays out and what happens I most likely will i just really hope they don't get progressively bigger Unless it's stuffed with cool and lengthy battles and a lot less stupid pre teen distractions i'm out

    This book was SO GOOD I really really enjoyed itThe world building wasn't super solid I think that was my main and only issue but the rest was so great It's hard to compete with PJO and HOO but this is still such a great book from Riordan I also appreciate that though it's still about mythical gods it's not an exact copy of what PJO is It's super different and stands on its own as a really uniue and interesting story I love Carter and Sadie and I'm really excited to read the rest of the trilogy GONNA BE FUN

    #1 The Red Pyramid ★★★★☆#2 The Throne of Fire ★★★☆☆#3 The Serpent's Shadow ★★★☆☆“Fair means everyone gets what they need And the only way to get what you need is to make it happen yourself”I grew up a huge fan of Egyptian mythology and history plus I loved the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series when I finally picked it up a couple of years ago so it was long overdue that I pick up the Kane Chronicles trilogy I felt like I'd never heard of people raving about this series nearly as much as any of RR's other series so I wasn't sure what to expect but within just a few chapters of the audiobook for this one I was so impressed Sadie and Carter had such distinct entertaining voices I loved the banter and bickering between the two of them and than anything I absolutely adored how uickly the two of them fell into these protective caring sibling feelings for each other despite having been apart so much in their childhoodsWhile the plot itself felt rushed and convenient than a few times that's something I generally expect from a lot of MG books so it didn't take away from my enjoyment too much On the other hand I really loved the casual representation with Sadie and Carter being biracial and the commentary on how Carter lived through so many different experiences than Sadie with Carter being dark skinned and Sadie being white passing I think the only big detractor from my enjoyment of this first installment was the weird forced beginnings of romance here which proved to be a big issue later in the series sadly I don't care for romance in MG novels to begin with but especially romance as unnatural as the ships we see in this series That said they were minor in The Red Pyramid so this first book still got an easy 4 stars from me——— Buddy read with Ellyn ♥

    Buddy read with a few friends at Buddies Books and BaublesRick Riodan RR is one of the few MG authors I read I mean I’m in my 30s so usually a MG book isn’t going to hold my attention but RR is one of the few authors who can pull it off and does it well at that What makes him special???? Well there are a few things that I really like about his writing ① He writes teens like teens They aren’t 12 16 year olds who act like they are in their 30s they are kids behaving like kids Carter and Sadie argue like real siblings would and I totally enjoyed their interactions and teasing of each other② ActionActionAction Seriously there is always something happening The stories move along uickly with chases fights and discovery scenes everywhere There are lots of clues along the way and some of them can be misleading until you get to the big picture of it all③ The mythology used is fantastic and so well thought out I love RR’s interpretation of the Egyptian gods magic and lore There is a new interesting interpretation of them and how they interact with the world It is new and exciting and I really loved how it was all shown and explained④ The magic and world building I get so upset when reading a book and not understanding how powers work I don’t care if it takes a little while to roll it out but I NEED to understand it I want to feel like if I lived in this world I too could do magic I’m still convinced I would have done as well as Hermione at Hogwarts if I got an invitation So I appreciate it when authors incorporate learning how to use the magic in their story After this book I was sure I could do the magic of this world if I was in it⑤ Interesting cohesive story and plotting that lend to a bang up conclusion RR totally has a good voice and knows where his story is going I never feel at the end that he has just thrown something in at last minute to fix everything It is a fantastic trait to have in a story tellerThere are a ton of reviews on this so I’ll just say Sadie and Carter were separated and raised apart after the death of their mother six years ago But now through a series of events they are thrown together and must find a way to work with one another to save their father With the help of a few unusual friends they must find ways to unlock the Power of the Gods Egyptian ones within themselves and try to save the world Easy peasyif they can uit suabbling long enoughIf you add a few Gods an albino crocodile a cat named muffin some spunky clay creations a secret magical society and an orangutan with some special dietary needs together and shake you come up with one hell of a good timeI liked the Percy Jackson stories just a tad better but if you like mythology then this could be a great time for you too

    “It takes strength and courage to admit the truth” Honestly who does it better than Rick Riordan when it comes to middle grade fantasy books? The answer is no one He never ceases to amaze me with the ideas he's coming up with and although one could say that his books and ideas are being recycled I downright disagree with that notion He's written about the Greek Gods about the Roman Gods and then the Egyptian Gods and each time he comes up with completely different ideas and twists to encase his stories inCarter and Sadie Kane are two siblings they've never seen much of each other since their mother died and their father took custody of Carter the eldest whereas Sadie was taken under their grandparents' care Carter is that smart humble kid who's always there to help and Sadie is that outgoing sassy girl you were classmates with when you were in elementary school And now let's fast forward to the part where the Egyptian Gods are unleashed and they find shelter in human hosts Amongst these Gods there is the worst of them the God of Chaos Set who's hell bent upon destroying the worldSo the kids learn who they are which is for you to find out I mean were their parents Gods? Or are they Gods themselves? Or maybe they're just common humans trying to save the world?You may think you're a little too familiar with this storyline especially if you're an avid Riordan reader but you'll be up for a surprise trust meThis somehow felt a lot fast paced than all of his other books Usually Mr Riordan takes his time with the characters and the plot but in this one everything was faster than usual and I admit that I loved the changeI'm saving my five stars for the next book this was just shy of getting it

    I ranked Rick Riordan's The Lighting Thief 5th on my Top Ten Fave Books for 2009 tied with Michael Scott's The Alchemist I reasoned out that I can't choose which one is better cause both made learning history fun and both have that cool factor reliving the things in the past Now I have suspicion that I unknowingly can see the future cause The Red Pyramid is exactly the combination of both books Is that a good thing? Yes if it had been well executed Let's review that sentence Yes if it had been well executed Yeah as what my stars above says don't look up to the sky dumbass I mean the rating stars it is not an awesome book Its given that Egyptian History is not as fascinating as the Greek and Roman History but egyptian culture has that sense of mystery that Riordan could have played I didn't get the Egyptian feel to it at all The existence of the egyptian gods in the book is not that cool either Thoth playing Rock Band is not as cool as Ares riding the Big Bike or Horus being cranky is not as funny as Dionysius being stubborn The whole god thing is like just for the sake of having them You can substitute them with normal people's name and would have still the same effect The spells are cool The thing about glowing hieroglyphs after saying the spell is brilliant but I can't see Ha di replacing Alohomora for young people getting locked out when they go home late It's pretty easy to guess why I know thisThe storyline even gets repetitiveSadie and Caine goes to one placeThey start bickering Shut up Sadie and Carter It's my review Read the book to get the sarcasmOne of them falls asleep and their soul drifts somewhereEnemy attacks themThey fight a littleTheir company fights alone to buy time for them while they runThey eventually be reunited with that someoneThe whole recording thing is distracting most of the times especially the remarks It would have been better if it's only on the beginning and the end just like in the Lightning ThiefAs for the main characters Sadie and Carter is the least likable sibling I ever read They are not awesome nor annoying they are just blah Forgettable They continuously throw corny jokes and weak sarcasms And at some point their voice on the chapters gets confusing I have to look up to the top of the page to be sure who is talking Even towards the end I still didn't get what kind of personality they have Now I am unsure if I will still follow this series Maybe if Riordan will able to redeem himself on The Last Heroa book that tells about something he is really good at I will read the second installment for the Kane Chronicles to make up for the time while waiting for the second Heroes of Olympus book Don't worry Rick Riordan I still like you and I understand that you like every writers out there sometimes just needs the pay check Peace'

    I uite enjoyed Riordan's new adventures featuring the Kane siblings Carter and Sadie I believe 14 and 12 years of age though I thought Sadie seemed older who are introduced to the possibilities that Egyptian mythology may be a bit real than they realizedSadie and Carter's mother died when they were young and since then they have had to live apart Sadie with her mother's parents in London and Carter with his father traveling the world looking for Egyptian artifacts Since they only see each other once a year or so it nicely adds to the story to have their relationship develop and evolveWhen visiting the museum something goes terrible wrong and Carter and Sadie discover that there may be to their father and the Kane family than they realizedI listened to the audio book which I thought was wonderful It is narrated by Kevin R Free and Katherine Kellgren Because the story is told both by Carter and Sadie each narrator reads the appropriate section The book is very suited to an audio recording as it is supposed to be Carter and Sadie making a recording of the events that have transpired I enjoy the Percy Jackson books and I think that this book has a similar style a similar since of fun and lightness but happily it didn't feel the same like I was reading the same story just with differently named characters To me Red Pyramid felt a little mature and complex not in a bad way just in that the protagonists are older there's history details etc I enjoyed this and like the Percy Jackson books with Greek mythology The Red Pyramid made me intrigued with Egyptian mythology and history the author's note by the way is fantasticAlso it was very nice and refreshing to have the Kane siblings be mixed race with a black father and white mother Not only does this bring about some interesting sibling points since Carter is darker and Sadie lighter they are often not perceived to be brother and sister but I also thought Riordan handled it all really well not making a big deal about letting the story still be the story but with a few mentions here and there where this is mentioned I'm hoping that there will be to this series and I'm anxiously awaiting reading the rest I mean what's not to love with dueling avatar half man half bird forms wands and staffs and a protective cat?
