Released – April 5, 2016
by Rick Riordan (Author)
ABOUT THE BOOK
Magic, monsters, and mayhem abound when Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase meet Carter and Sadie Kane for the first time. Weird creatures are appearing in unexpected places, and the demigods and magicians have to team up to take them down. As they battle with Celestial Bronze and glowing hieroglyphs, the four heroes find that they have a lot in common–and more power than they ever thought possible. But will their combined forces be enough to foil an ancient enemy who is mixing Greek and Egyptian incantations for an evil purpose? Rick Riordan wields his usual storytelling magic in this adrenaline-fueled adventure.
This book is not one story with one plot. Instead, it contains three cross-over stories when Percy Jackson, Annabeth and the Kanes meet. Percy Jackson and Annabeth are characters in their own series called Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Similarly, the Kanes have their own series called the Kane Chronicles. Both these series are written by Rick Riordan. This book also contains a sneak peek at Rick Riordan’s upcoming book called “The Trials of Apollo.”
I enjoyed the book because it was so enticing that I had to keep turning the pages. I recommend this book to kids who love Rick Riordan’s books and Ancient Mythology
