Sep 11, 2023, 08:52 PM

Prophecy Radio episode #99 discusses all the latest Rick Riordan news, including some new information about the Chalice of the Gods book tour and the special guests who will be attending. Plus, we tackle The Kane Chronicles: The Red Pyramid chapter 22, in which Carter gets up close and personal with Leroy, before breaking down our predictions for the rest of the book ahead of us putting the discussion on pause to switch over to Chalice of the Gods. New episodes of Prophecy Radio air weekly, and we keep our discussions PG-13.

The Kane Chronicles: The Red Pyramid discussion (00:15:37)

  • This week, we’re discussing The Red Pyramid chapter 22.
  • It really shouldn’t be that easy to get through airport security?
  • The set animal kind of looks like a moose, I guess?
  • Bast wants them to run, but Carter wants to hold his ground, and we’re so proud of him.
  • Is this Horus making him more reckless, or is he becoming braver?
  • How awesome was it that he could just pull his sword from thin air?
  • Carter then gets up close and personal with Leroy.
  • Go, chicken-man, go!
  • Leroy gets shoved in a locker, and it’s pretty impressive.
  • Time to go to sleep, which means it’s time for Prophecy Count #37!
  • There’s a giant underground red pyramid in Phoenix, and this does not bode well.
  • We’re choosing not to picture Face of Horror.
  • Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like Set will underestimate Carter and Sadie again.
  • Is Face of Horror working for another baddie?
  • Can’t believe we’re leaving off on this chapter while we go read Chalice of Gods

  • There will be a greater evil, and we’ll just leave it at that.
  • What if Zia ends up going against the House?
  • By the end of this book, could the House accept Carter and Sadie as godlings?

  • We really need to learn more about him and his backstory.
  • What if Bast is the one to make the big sacrifice?
  • Will the kids have trouble controlling the gods inside them?
  • Who is that boy Sadie keeps seeing and what does he want!?
