Overview

In this adventure, Annabeth encounters more oddities in the subway than usual, including a two-headed monster and a younger blond girl who reminds her a little of herself. This is the story fans have asked for, in which Annabeth Chase teams up with Sadie Kane. The demigod daughter of Athena and the young magician from Brooklyn House take on a larger-than-life foe from the ancient world. Perhaps even more disturbing than the power-hungry god they encounter is the revelation that he is being controlled by someone—someone all too familiar to Sadie. As a special bonus, the first chapter of THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS, the final book in the Heroes of Olympus series, is included.

SPOILERS OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! After reading this I realized this book and the Son of Sobek are based after the Blood of Olympus! So we know at least Percy and Annabeth survive. I really hope Mr.Riordan makes a series (at least a novel or more short stories) about how the Greeks & the Egyptians (& hopefully the Romans too) have to fight Setne to stop him from becoming a god. That would be so fun to have all of them together, I really hope that's the plan. I also understand that as these stories are based AFTER the Blood of Olympus the Egyptians will not come to the rescue as I had hoped. Although if there are more books like this I will be pacified.

Excellent. Annabeth is my second favorite character (after Leo) so it was good to see her and Sadie star in a book. I don't want to spoiler much but this book sets up some exciting stuff yo happen in the future.

Hello all! First of all, don't read this if you have not read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series or the Kane Chronicles series. Or the Son of Sobek short story, for that matter. Those books are critical to understanding this story. I was very satisfied with this book. It was an easy read, although I did have to fix a couple page numbers to continue reading the CORRECT page. Riordan's eBooks seem to have this issue of page skipping, but it's easy resolved. If you enjoy Rick Riordan's previous works, then I definately recommend this book. It is worth the money.

This book made me wish the blood of olympus would come out sooner!!! It was amazing and yoi have to read it, especially if you read the son of sobek. I love all of ricks books and i hope the percy jackson seris contines and that the rumors that after the blood of olympus is published rick is moving on. Anyway, this book prepares you in a way for what is hopefully coming nezt!!!!!

Rick Riordin has brought Sadie and Annabeth together for this book. Although I haven't read the Kane Chronicles, I understood most of it because I love the Percy Jackson series and the Heroes of Olympus series. This book takes place after The Blood of Olympus, so it is a spoiler that Percabeth is still going and that the Egyptions do not show up in the last book of the Heroes of Olympus series. It also includes the first chapter of the Blood of Olympus. It starts out with Jason, which is a bit disappointing, because I don't like Jason much, but that's just my opinion. For those of you who are having trouble trying to read the preview, just search for the page number it's on pr go to the beginning of the book to tap on the link in the book fr it. I can't wait for the Blood of Olympus!

This short story is great for fans of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and The Kane Chronicles. This short story made you want to keep reading and not stop! When it was finished, I needed more! This is a great second book to The Son of Sobek and a great combination of the two best selling series. Both children and parents would enjoy reading this. It has a great theme of never giving up even when things get tough.

I reccomend this book to any Percy Jackson fan who eagerly awaits the sequel to Rick Riordan's previous cliffhanger the House of Hades.

Did anybody else notice how it goes to a few pages mentioning Jason? Could it be a sneak peek pn The Blood Of Olympus? It wont turn the page but I dont remember Jason being old guys! [===[========>PS Great book!

At least the publishers had the good sense to include tje preview of the blood of olympus in the sample.

omg! This is an awesome first chapter! Cant wait for October 7!!!!!!

I get what you mean now. It would have to happen after Blood of Olympus, otherwisw Annabeth wouldn't be surprised that her cap works again. Also, it can't happen during the six month period while Percy is missing because in the beginning it talks about how Annabeth is considering going to see Percy, which she couldn't do if he was missing. It makes so much more sense now. Also, now Rick Riordan HAS to write another series about Percy and everyone else. I feel like this just won'work as short stories. Ergo, more Percy Jackson books! ...Blood of Olympus out tomorrow. (not that I'm excited or anything...;D)

I don't think he has let any of us down with his writings. I just wish he would of been around when I went to school and had to study Greek Mythology. I might have learned more. Keep the books coming and we all will keep reading them.

I thnk a short story with nico and wallt is a must after all the undead is a good theme and stuff that goes horible wrong and exsplodes a lot is good ideas as well.

On this adventure sadie kane and annabeth chase will team up to defeat a monster from ancient times. To defeat this enemy they will need annabeth's wits and sadie's magic to defeat it. Will they destroy the monster? Or will they have to force to bow down? The only way to find out is to read it...... i highly recommend this even though its a short story. So if u like reading the Kand chronicals, the percy jackson series, or the heroes of olympus, youll love this book

OMG!!! I was literally screaming for joy when I saw this story! It was a very well-written short story. Well done Rick Riordan! Thank you for making an Annabeth Chase/ Sadie Kane story! The Blood of Olympus preview is included in this short story so I was freaking out when I read the preview. Can't wait for the Blood of Olympus to come out! Hope Rick Riordan continues this storyline of Greek and Egyptian gods!
