Percy Jackson series is better than the Kane chronicles
Debate Rounds (3)
I have read all the Rick Rodian books and I am ready for this debate. Good luck and may the best debater win.
While we both can agree that Percy Jackson is a fan favorite, there is something you can't help but notice that the Percy Jackson series only taught us two Greek words as in: Erete es Korakas and Vlacas in the 5 books that were unleashed. However, all the Kane Chronicles' books have different Egyptian spells like Ma'at, Sa'per and A'max. While it doesn't have much educational purposes, it puts us into a deeper dimension of the story in which we want to learn more and continue reading the entire series. (It was based on my personal experience.) They use it in the Magnus Chase series where you learn the runes (and yes they do have glossaries. All of them so that is not a proper rebutal.) so it seems like Percy Jackson is an odd-one-out which, frankly makes me uncomfortable.
There is also a catch that when the Percy Jackson series becomes interlinked with the other series, (the stories of the Son of Sobek, The staff of Serapis and the Crown of Ptolemy) the main villains in them are not Greek. In my previous examples, Setne was the villain and Greek involved or not, Crazy Elvis used an EGYPTIAN book to conjure the spells so it seems like Percy was just in the sidelines of the whole story.
Glad for your points. Good luck. :)
First of all, no one is reading the books for learning Greek or Egyptian words. The series are termed as fiction. Also, the fact that Percy Jackson is a odd one out does not make me feel uncomfortable. If it makes you feel that it is uncomfortable, please explain why. People read the books for fun, not to learn any of the runes, or words or anything.
First, here is a rebutal to your rebutal. Just because you don't read the content after doesn't mean that others don't. I didn't mean that everyone has to read it. I just meant that for the people who read it have a more deeper contrast to the story. They don't just read the word Ma'at and wonder what that means. It is all written at the end of the story.
Now for my rebutals. The Kane Chronicles do have humor in their own way too. A self aware baboon and crocodile? That's humorous to me. Look at these four quotes in the series too: 1) My expression must've been priceless, because Zia actually cracked a smile. "You look like a cow hit with a shovel. 2) Eat muffins? What kind of battle cry was that? 3) What goddess would want her except the goddess of chewing gum? 4) She swatted a large metal warrior, a shabti no doubt, and he transformed into a rainbow bellied pig. If we lived through the day, I had a bad feeling Little Shelby would want to keep it.
See? Humor. The Kane Chronicles are just as hilarious as Percy Jackson which, is quite funny too.
Excitement? To answer your questions, yes they did go to the underworld, yes an army of bad magicians march to the First Nome (counts as the palace) and little ids with half the power of the gods save it. (Found in the Throne of Fire and the Serpent's Shadow) but what? It's like what you are stating with your questions that the story-line needs to be the same. Not every god of the dead is evil and Osiris is their dad. He can't kill them. There is also plenty of exciting battles in the three books. Each. For example, The Battle Of The Red Pyramid, The Battle With Vlad Menshikov (Michel Desjardins appear too which made it more exciting.) and The Final Battle/The Battle Of The House Of Life. Besides, it only took three books to kill the main villain of the Kane Chronicles which proves that the Kane siblings are much stronger than that of Percy.
Overall, I have proved to you an equalizer of humor between the two series, an equalizer of excitement and a bonus point proving the Kanes are stronger than Percy and Annabeth.
Thanks for issuing this debate. You really made my week. Good luck!!!
PS: You didn't rebut on my point of the whole stories being interlinked thing so I'm just going to think you agree. :P
