Do te like the switching points of view in The Red Pyramid? I do. If not, which view do te like better? At some points I like Carter's more, and at other points I like Sadie's more. I really think that the switching of visualizzazioni was a good idea because at that time Sadie may be trying to sleep o may be unconius. o Carter was waiting for Sadie and Anubis's talk to end while they were at a funeral in a parallel universe. (Yes these are examples of the book.) If te couldn't have Sadie's point of view and Carter's point of view switch off, who would te rather it be? I would do Bast and Zia. Bast...

Everybody in this club is dying for the release of the trono of fuoco on May 3, 2011. For those who want a spoiler of the first chapter of the trono of Fire-if te still haven't read it-, go to this site:

link

I'm guessing when te read this, your just going to be più impatient for waiting for The trono of Fire.

The story of Carter and Sadie with their new tranies(hope I spelled that right) travelling the world to find The Book of Ra! Exiting start, exiting middle and ending.

I hope all of us won't be let down da RR(which is VERY unlikely) when the book is released.

P.S If te DO get più impatient, sorry...

Well...Bye for now!!!

Ra - Sun God, King of the Gods a falco, falcon crowned with a sun disk o a man with a falcon's head

Ra was the God of the Sun. He sailed across the heavens in a barca called the 'Barque of Millions of Years'. At the end of each giorno Ra was thought to die and sailed on his night voyage through the Underworld, leaving the Moon to light the world above. The barca would sail through the twelve doors, representing the twelve hours of night time. The successivo dawn, he was born again.

It was not always smooth sailing. During the giorno Ra had to fight his chief enemy, a snake called Apep. He was helped da the other...

Amun - God of Creation, crowned with ostrich feathers

Amun was an important god, but there are no stories about him. He created all things. At the same time, he remained apart from creation, totally different from it, and fully independent from it. In fact, he was invisible, so te couldn't have a picture of him! However, if te called him Amun-Re, this allowed people to see him. Then he had a hat with ostrich feathers on, and like all gods with human heads, a beard. Re is another way of spelling Ra, the sun god.

Tutankhamun's name contains the name of Amun. It also contains the Ankh, which means Life. His name means "Long life to Amun."
    
Amun is sometimes spelled Ammon. The fossil ammonites are called after him, because his sacred animal is a ram, and ammonites are shaped like ram's horns.

Bastet - Protectress of Cats, cat o head of a cat

Bastet was sometimes called bast. She was the goddess of cats. She is a cat, o has the head of a cat, but originally she had the head of a lion.

Every giorno the sun god Ra would travel in his ship across the sky. Every night the snake Apep tried to stop the sun god's ship on his journey through the underworld. Ra was usually won these battles. However, on stormy days, o during an eclipse, the Egyptians believed that Apep had been Victorious and swallowed the sun. Bastet defended her father Ra against the snake.

Bastet was the proctress of cats. The Ancient Egyptians had a great respect for Gatti since they protected the grain from mice and rats. Rats can also cause disease. Killing a cat was punishable da death. When a cat died, the family mourned it, shaving their eyebrows to mark their sadness. Gatti were sometimes mummified, like people, and their mummies have been found.

What do te think will happen in the successivo book. Of course it is going to have a problem, solution, and drama. The book will obviously mainly deal around Carter and Sadie trying to defeat a tradgedy, auch as a monster. What monster, what tradedy? Will they find Zia, and who will get hurt? Zia? Anibus???? Will Bast come back and reliove again since she has 7 lives? I think that the 2nd book will deal around that snake monster that controlled Set, if it comes, out, as it detto in the book that it the snake thing was espcaping slowly. o will Bast defend the world as she continues to battle the snake thing in that punishment area thingy? o will she come out and release the smake thing so Carter and Sadie will be able to help her defeat it? So many questions, soon to be answered in less than a year.....

commento on what te think will happen! Thanks!

If te could interview Rick Riordan about his books, icluding The Red Pyramid, the Percy Jackson Seires, The Lost Hero, and all of his adult books, what domande would te ask? I would ask him how he made up his libri and why he decided to make libri anyway. I would also ask him about his new libri for The Kane Chronicles, and the sequel seires to The Percy Jackson Series, The Heros of Olympus. In addition to that, I would ask hime about his upcoming libri for adults, and if after the seires of The Heroes of Olympus and the Kane Chronicles (whichever one ends first) if he has any upcoming ideas of a new seies. That's what I would ask him? After Leggere this article, have te came up with some new questions? I hope so!
