Since their mother’s death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane.

One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a “research experiment” at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives.

Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them —Set— has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe - a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.

I spent my childhood going to museums and my favorite exhibits were always the ones about Egypt. When I found out one of my favorite authors was writing a series about Egyptian mythology I was ecstatic! I couldn’t wait to see how Rick Riordan would weave his story.

Here are a couple of things i enjoyed about The Red Pyramid(very minor to minimal spoilers ahead):

  • The world building was phenomenal! I loved how Riordan blends his stories with realism and mythology.
  • The character building. The way the author writes his characters and makes you become attached despite your best attempts to not become attached because let’s be honest here, Mr. Riordan is not the kindest when it comes to characters. He can enjoy seeing them suffer.
  • The fact that incest is actually addressed.  There is a lot of incest in Ancient Egyptian history.  It actually makes learning more about the culture of the pharaohs a little difficult. The way Mr. Riordan handles it is graceful and leaves no doubt in your mind that there is no incest in his books.
  • I have always enjoyed how the love story is not a big deal in Riordan’s books.  It helps us keep in mind that the character are in their young teens.  No young teenager needs to worry about being in love and finding the love of their life. There is plenty of time to do that when they are older.
  • In Chapter 9 she says ‘My dear, i’m a cat everything i see is mine’.  I have always loved cats i have 3 of them. They are simply the most precious and sassy animals in the world.
  • Not many authors are comfortable about addressing race in their books but something Riordan has always done well is talk about the realities of being one race or having a specific belief.  In The Red Pyramid the relationship between PoC(in particular African American men) and the Police. He is very open and honest and states things exactly how they are. He does not gently blow this topic off(which would be difficult since one of the main characters is a PoC)
  • One of the final things I appreciated in this book is the fact that Riordan makes little references to his other books. In particular he references the Percy Jackson Series. If you have not read the Percy Jackson books you won’t understand the reference but if you do you will immediately be saying to yourself ‘I see what you did there’.

This book is perfect for anyone who wants a story that has an adventure but isn’t all consumed in romance. I feel like most adventure books are more absorbed in the romance and use that as a point to move the plot along but in my opinion none of Riordan’s books do that.  This book is technically middle grade so it is also very easy to read.

Overall I give this story 4.5 Bards!

Annabeth: Synonyms are weird because if you invite someone to your cottage in the forest, that just sounds nice and cozy, but if I invite you to my cabin in the woods, you’re going to die.


Piper: My favorite is “butt dial” vs “booty call”.


Jason: It’s called connotation.


Nico: Also, “forgive me father, I have sinned,” vs “sorry daddy, I’ve been naughty”.


Leo: Great news! Language is now cancelled!

 “There’s a lot of power in mixing Greek and Egyptian. I’m glad you introduced me to my new friends.

Request for Miss Sadie Kane from @captainjackthejoker on ko-fi! I got carried away with this one—it’s been way too long since I read the Kane Chronicles and this was a good reminder of how much I loved it♥️

Sadie: Say it.

Carter: *sighs* I need your help.

Sadie:shhh

Carter:what-?

Sadie: I’ms a v o r i n g this moment.

i love how there are so many different interpretations of things, like in tkc ammit the devourer is basically described as their pet bc the dad becomes osiris but in moon knight ammit is this all powerful goddess that has been punished and bound to a stone statue like thats so amazing

The Kane Chronicles are being adapted by Netflix, so a little reminder that although Sadie is described as a blonde girl in the books, there’s a great possibility that a mixed race actress will play her in order to respect Sadie’s heritage. This could mean that we could possibly get a light skinned black actress as Sadie instead of blonde one, and that will be totally acceptable and accurate.

Just saying this, so when it happens people don’t start with the “but she isn’t accurate to the description in the books”.

friendly reminder that black people are diverse af and having a lightskinned blonde actress is MORE than possible.

Of course it is possible.

Some people had this view of Sadie being a white British girl, and you can see it a lot in fanarts, they forget about her dad’s side. I had seen some art of her drawed with a more dark skin color than caucasian, and there is always comments of people complaining.

It is completely possible to have a blonde light skinned black girl, but, there is also possible that they cast a black girl with dark hair and a skin color different to what they picture it. The point of the post was that reminder that the latter is completely possible and will still be accurate for Sadie, so these kind of people don’t start complaining about the actress and saying the “she doesn’t look like the one in the books” in a negative way. Like they had been doing with the recent casting announcements.
