I have always loved the Percy Jackson series and the Kane Chronicles and combining those two was genius. The way Rick make the story come alive was with the amazing details they were wonderful. Also combining two completly diffrent mthyolgies was a great way to incorpacrate the element of mystery into the story. By creating a world wih do different ways of magic and mystery is certinly one of the reason Rik Riordan u one of my all time favorite authors.

Comical and action-packed, this book is definitely the worth two bucks spent. I hope that Rick starts a new series based on this idea after he's finished with the 'Hero's of Olympus' series. Just imagine how cool that'd be! I don't how he would mix Greek, Roman, and Egyptian in one, and definitely want to see how he writes that! Sorry, got a little off topic there . . . . . . . JUST BUY THE STINKING BOOK ALREADY!!! I'VE ALREADY WASTED THIRTY SECOND OF YOUT TIME SO JUST STOP READING AND BUY THE BOOK!! haha lol, seriously, just get it. :)

I just read this out loud to my son. Fun book! Does this mean that the Egyptians are going to get involved in the Greek/Roman battle that's brewing? Hmmm.... We can hardly wait for House of Hades.

I hope Rick Riordan incorparates both mythological worlds in a new series where Percy and Carter have to fight a mutual enemy together -seemed hinted in the book ;] That would be SO EPIC!!!!! Maybe this short story would be the epolouge (perhaps writen from Percy's point of veiw) then he would launch into the story about the Greeks (and maybe Romans?) and Egyptians (gods and magicians) would combine forces to defet the enemy!!!! If you think this idea is AMAZING click "yes" :) if you don't then your mean :( Have a great day! [Ya i said that even to the mean people -- just proving my point here (I'm nice so you should hit "yes")]

Good book. Needs to add more than what is already there. Maybe Rick should add another short story where they meet again.

I love both these series and still giggle out loud when reading them for the 15th time, no joke. I'm slightly obsessed. Actually I'm really kind of obsessed with all things Percy Jackson and Rick Riordan. Who cares if I'll be off at college in a few years? After Heroes of Olympus ends(which I hope it never does but know it must), a series should be made of this crossover. Maybe Percy is at college in New Rome? Maybe he's in his twenties and engaged or married to one particularly brilliant and witty gray-eyed daughter of Athena ( hint-hint anyone?). Or maybe Carter tracks down a young magician who happens to go to Percy's school and/or is his good friend who turns out to be his little sister, another daughter of Poseidon. Or maybe of Neptune (Earthshaker?). Whatever you do Rick Riordan do not let Percy die ( and I mean the character and the epic series).!!!!!!!!!!!!

This book totally rocked, I saw one about Sadie and Annabeth is out soon and I can't wait. I love both series and hope they will call the Kanes for help in the Blood of Olympus. I really can not wait. At all. I wonder if they do come in if Sadie and Carter will get to have some chapters be told from their point of view. I really hope they do because I bet this is the other gods and rival magic Ruby Kane warned them about. I also this it would be cool to have Greeks, Romans, AND Egyptians together. I mean together they would be unstopable. It would be so cool, I hope it happens. If it doesn't Mr. Riordan had better be making another series where they do get together. I also hope the Blood of Olympus isn't the last book. I mean what will he write about after everybody discovers all the different mythologies? I want him to go on writing forever and ever. He must keep writing amazing stories. Because if he doesn't what am supposed to do read Percy Jackson Faniction?!

I reccomend this book to everyone and anyone thos book is so good i could never put it fowb this combines carter cane and percy jackson together fighting off a forty foot crocidile and together they are invincible but they go through a bumpy ride but they get the hang of it once they hot along splease buy this book becuase it is really good ! I also reccomend the book the house of hades the blood of olympus the lost hero the son of neptune the mark of athena and the cane cronicles wich is the red pyramid and there are many more but that would take ne a whole another paragraph so buy this book now! If your still thinking anout it dont becuase if you had bot read this yet then you have not lived yet so stop thinking about it and buy this book

Maggie's pov- The next morning, Christmas day, I woke to the wonderful smell of Aunt Sally's blue choclate chip pancakes. I didn't see Percy or Annabeth so I guessed they were on a walk. I did see Grover, Hazel, and Frank. Frank was helping set the table while Aunt Sally was cooking with Dad. Hazel and Grover were looking at the Christmas tree. Aunt Sally and Dad said we could open one present each before breakfast. Even Hazel, Grover and Frank had gifts since they were part of the family like Annabeth. I pick my smallest gift. It said " From Secret Santa. Inside was a beautiful charm bracelet with a dove and rose charm on it. I tried to find out who gave it to me but no one seemed to want to give up their secret. Hazel had chosen the present I had gotten her. It was a photo album. She had always wanted to keep her memories close to her and now she could. Frank had got a ticket for a tour of the campus where his mom went to college from Aunt Sally. Grover got a new wooden flute from Annabeth. Apparently he played the flute to calm himself. Percy and Annabeth walked in the door just as everyone sat down for breakfast. After breakfast and present opening Dad and I started packing the car. Meanwhile in the apartment, Grover started panicing " Guys... you come here!" What Grover?" Annabeth asked worried. " I sense an empousai." Percy groans. " Really Grover, of all thing it has to be a empousai! Whatever I will go tell my mom we'll be back." Percy and the gang went out to search for the empousai. Now almost done packing I realized I forgot my book in the dining room. When I go to the dining room and bend down to get my book ,which is on the floor, a monster (the empousai) flung itself at me. I screamed for help. Just as it barely touched me, Percy and Frank came in and tackled it. Annabeth and Hazel rushed towards me, putting me to the side. I had a huge gash on my left arm from where the creature had clawed me. Grover came over and helped me get to the kitchen. Grover then went to talk to Aunt Sally then we went to the front of the building. The others met us there. We all got in Percy's car and drove away. We ended at the bottom of a hill. Everyone but Percy got out and started up the hill. At the top there were woods. Near the other edge of the woods a hellhound and empousai jumped in front of us. I was paralysed with fear but then Annabeth tossed me a dagger and my insstincts came in. Everyone else went after the empousai while I went after the hellhound. Eventually I stabbed the monster causing him to evaporate. The others were barely injured but I had a rather large cut on my shoulder. Now reaching the other side of the hill I collapsed in exhaustion and loss of blood. Thanks for reading next at staff of serapis. I am also collaborating with the author of daughter of the sea maiden. Please read and post reviews from them. Part one at lightning theif and reviews are at anner res. 2 and character apps are at res. 1. I may use some charaters from there. Comments for saviors are at percy jacksons greek god or demigods an monsters. Spaniellover071902
