Episode #92 – …Or Die

Prophecy Radio episode #92 catches you up on all the latest Rick Riordan news, from upcoming Rick Riordan Presents books like Fury of the Dragon Goddess to the current WGA/SAG-AFTRA strikes and what they mean for the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series on Disney+. This week, we’re also talking about The Kane Chronicles: The Red Pyramid by tackling chapter 16, in which Zia embraces the singed-eyebrow look. New episodes of Prophecy Radio air weekly, and we keep our discussions PG-13.

  • This week, we’re reading The Red Pyramid chapter 16.
  • Put us down for not wanting to be woken up the way Zia wakes Sadie.
  • Why didn’t Carter sleep well?
  • How do we get some bottled Thoth Water?
  • That tongue tattoo was pretty cool.
  • Either do what Zia tells you to…or die.
  • What are the magicians’ specialties and which can we unanimously agree is a no-go for us?
  • There are some really great moments while Carter and Sadie learn to bring hierglyphs to life with magic.
  • We’re so happy we learned about Luxor/Thebes in our last episode.
  • How strong is Zia, exactly?
  • It’s time to duel, and it definitely does not go according to plan.
  • We learn a little bit more about the Kanes’ familial background.
  • Iskandar is dead, and even though we saw this coming, it’s still sad.
  • It also spells major trouble for the Kanes.
  • Zia’s willing to give them a five-minute head start, and that’s about as good as it’s going to get.

Feedback (01:28:42)

  • Tim writes in with a little What If… for The Last Olympian.
  • Caoimhe also catches us up on her reactions to the last few episodes and gives us a great idea for a future one.
  • It seems Bobbi is as big of a fan of Hapshetsut as we are.
