    (B+) 76% | Good Notes: A clever but lazy convergence, like tee-ball bouts with subpar foes: less an epic battle than a playdate sharing of toys.

Am I the only one who wants a 5-book Crossover series between Greek gods (Percy Jackson), Roman gods (Heroes of Olympus, I mean the characters here, we already had a crossover between these two), Norse Mythology (Magnus Chase) & Egyptian deities (Kane Chronicles)? Something writtten by Riordan of course, although I know a Great crossover between Greek & Norse already (but it does not include all the gods, just a few of them) , the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel

    Don't read this until after you've read The Kane Chronicles and both Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the Heroes of Olympus series because these take place after all of those books. I really enjoyed the stories though, and seeing the Kanes in action again was awesome! It makes me want to reread all of the Riordan's mythology books.

Short Story rating: The Son of Sobek: 4/5 The Staff of Serapis: 4.5/5 The Crown of Ptolemy 5/5 I liked each of these stories especially the last one with the 4 working together and it was awesome to see them bouncing off each other so well. Getting each of the other two stories with Percy and Carter working together and the same for Sadie and Annabeth, it was good to see the different interactions with them meeting for the first time and them having to work together without any form of knowing one another. I really enjoyed the Greek and Egyptian crossover and seeing the characters react and also interact with the problems at hand. I liked seeing Annabeth and Percy react to all the Egyptian powers and vice versa with Sadie and Carter. Now i would like to see a major crossover with all the Greek, Egyptian and Roman demigods and i can only imagine how that would play out but for me that would be a very interesting and fun read! Rick always makes these books fun and full of knowledge about all the different Greek, Egyptian and Roman mythology, i will always come back to these books with open arms.

    Actual rating: ★★★★ and 1/2 stars. Since this book is a combination of three stories, I made a sum out of each. Friendly reminder that in order to understand this story, you need to read Percy Jackson Collection: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, the Last Olympian, the Titans Curse, the Sea of Monsters, the Battle of the Labyrinth, the Demigod Files and the Red Pyramid first.

What can I say about this book? + It gave me a huge nostalgie and a reminder of my early teen years. + This book is very well written, organized and the battle scenes and settings were perfectly described. Mind you, this book could easily be addressed to middle graders (they even use it at my middle school) so I think this is a point to take into account. + I laughed out loud at some of the scenes. Even in the darkest moments, either Sadie or Percy make sarcastic or funny comments. BUT! - I felt like the villain of the story wasn't a villain at all. He was just a man thirsty with power... idk. - Annabeth's personality. I didn't feel like she was the Annabeth I knew in the books. With everything being said (written), I will totally buy the next book if Rick makes one or another sequel for The Serpent's Shadow !

Having finished The Serpent's Shadow the same day I read this, the fact that this crossover was set up carefully did not escape my notice. The first story, The Son of Sobek, is the shortest, and it details the meeting of Carter and Percy. In typical boy fashion, they are very reticent about their origins, but unite forces against a monster. The second story is a bit longer, The Staff of Serapis, and details the meeting of Annabeth and Sadie, who divulge a little more information. The third story, The Crown of Ptolemy, is the longest and it brings all of our four heroes and magicians together. While I enjoyed all these stories, I enjoyed this one the most. It afforded as a look at 17 year old Percy and Annabeth, now that they've been dating over a year, and I'm always game to visit these two. Carter and Sadie are fresh off their battle with Apophis and it was cool to see how they're doing.

I missed having Percy for a main character, even though he has been through a lot. And definitely Annabeth to be around and call Percy Seaweed Brain which always cracks me up. And with The Kane Chronicles having only been a trilogy and who knows if Rick Riordan will ever plan a sequel series to bring Carter and Sadie back again, having the three short stories would have to do to be back with the two magicians for a short period. Personally, I think Rick should do this more often while writing his books, to have more side short stories with our most favorite characters so we can always connect with these demigods or magicians for always. (I choose being a demigod.) In conclusion, I had fun with this book.

    3.2 Stars A simple and cute book. It was nice to see a bit of a crossover regardless if it was necessary or not. Honestly, what made this worth it was the scene where Percy sees Sadie and says that she reminded him of Annabeth and him put together, which ultimately made him think of what their kids would be like. My heart!! I teared up a little not gonna lie. Totally made it worth the read for me.

    "Is your brother's name Carter?" Annabeth asked. An angry golden aura flickered around Sadie's head-a halo of hieroglyphs that resembled frowns, fists, and dead stick men. "As of this moment," Sadie growled, "My brother's name is Punching Bag.” This was the crossover I was craving after reading The Kane Chronicles trilogy!

I liked how the short stories were linked between them to the climax in The Crown of Ptolemy and though it was interesting to have Annabeth's POV in one of the stories since we first see the boys teaming up, then the girls and finally the four of them together as they mixed Egyptian and Greek magic, I would have liked to get Sadie's or Carter's POV in one of those - I missed their narration, especially Sadie's (also known for a fact as the lovechild of Percy & Annabeth). And though I left this book craving more Egyptian adventures ( I so wish Rick would write more on the Kanes!), it was amazing and all I could hope for in a crossover!

Demigods And Magicians collects the three crossover novella between the Percy Jackson series and the Kane Chronicles. Since these three novellas are so different I shall review them individually and then give my overall thoughts on this bind-up. The Son Of Sobek Carter Kane and Percy Jackson meet up in this first crossover novella. Being only 40 pages long, not as much detail goes into this as it probably should have but it had enough that it was worth while reading. The Son Of Sobek was written in the perspective of Cater Kane, and boy was it interesting to see how he described Percy for the first time. All that The Son Of Sobek has really done, for me at least, is that it has opened up the world to more of these mythology crossovers and I cannot wait to see how Riordan is going to explain the different sets of gods and goddesses coexisting. 4/5 The Staff Of Serapis Told from Annabeth's perspective, The Staff Of Serapis is the second of the Egyptian Gods and Greek Gods novella crossovers. I must say that it was quite funny having Anabeth describe Sadie Kane. The main purpose of The Staff Of Serapis was to set up the the final novella in this bind-up, The Crown Of Ptolemy. 5/5 The Crown Of Ptolemy The Crown Of Ptolemy is the third (and I assume final) Percy Jackson and Kane Chronicles crossover novella. Both The Son Of Sobek and The Staff Of Serapis set up this novella perfectly. It was very interesting to see the combination of Greek and Egyptian and how they flow fro the same source. I do feel like The Crown Of Ptolemy was almost rushed. Since it is only meant to be a novella, Riordan was unable to expand like he normally does and give both the character and the atmosphere some depth. Apart from feeling like it could have benefited from 20 - 30 more pages, The Crown Of Ptolemy leaves with the possibility of future crossovers which I cannot wait to see if they end up happening. 4/5 Overall This novella bind-up was an interesting one. I love how the Greek and Egyptian gods and goddesses are able to co-exist and what this may mean for future books that Riordan is going to write. I do feel like they could, and should, have been longer to allow the situations that they were facing to sink in better and just generally give him some more workability with the storyline. 4/5

    This was a nice addition to both the Percy Jackson series and the Kane Chronicles series, but I'd definitely recommend finishing the main books in BOTH series before moving onto this. Spoilers! They're vague enough that you might not realize all of them, but they're definitely there. The plots of these three stories weren't the most interesting, but it was nice to see the main characters of the two series again and to see how they'd interact.

I personally would have liked more interaction between Percy and Carter. It doesn't particularly make me want to read the Kane Chronicles though. I found most of the Egyptian Mythology stuff confusing and I don't want to have to research just to understand a children's book. #2.

The Staff of Serapis I preferred The Son of Sobek, but that's not because I really don't like Annabeth, but rather because I found it a easier and a nicer read. However, I liked Sadie much more than I liked Carter, and I found her quite interesting. #3. The Crown of Ptolemy Nice conclusion to the mini crossover series, though the ending felt really abrupt. Having not read the Chronicles of Kane series, it may be that I'm not understanding correctly, but the Egyptian threat didn't really ring true when it came to destroying the Gods. They survived the entirety of the Percy Jackson series, and this bloke with a crown seems rather flimsy. Overall This series was pretty nice, and I liked that Riordan crossed the two series over, but having the Kane Chronicles, it doesn't make me want to read them either. The Egyptian magic just really confused me and it put me off reading. I did like Sadie, and from these books, I preferred her to Carter.

    I haven't been able to read these stories with the rest of the world because, as usually happens when an author puts out bonus e-book novellas, I'm forced to wait for a print compilation because I have no e-reader.

But after reading these three crossover stories, I think I might have to reread the Kane trilogy at some point, if only because I know better now how well these two sets of heroes work together. Rick Riordan's got himself an excellent mythological multiverse going, and every aspect of it must be appreciated. The best part of this book, however, is the sneak peek to The Hidden Oracle right at the end. I've been pretty pumped for that one for a while (unfortunately, the library's got a LONG waiting list), and now, I'm even more so. Apollo seems like a surprisingly lovable assbite - a side of him I don't think we got enough of in the old Camp Half-Blood books.

    I needed something light and fun with characters I love so I grabbed this off my TBR shelf. Carter, Sadie, Percy and Annabeth will always feel so real to me. I love the sass and commentary. I love the mythological aspects. Riordan is just one of my favorite go to authors. This got me wanting to read some of his newer works sooner rather than later.

Riordan surprises Us with 3 Magnificent Short Stories combines with Ancient Greek Celestial Bronze And Ancient Egyptian Glowing Hieroglyphs. It Tells about the Worlds of Greek Myths And Egyptians Myths must Separate Each Other until Ancient Fools mixing powers of Greek and Egyptian for his purpose can be Very Dangerous, so it is up to Greek Demigod Couples from Camp Half-Blood and Egyptian Magician Siblings From Brooklyn House struggling to stop Setne with their own Greek-Egyptian Power-Mix which is extremely Forbidden and remain absolutely necessary. I remember I Bought paperback edition for 1 each Short Stories Before all 3 get published as One Hardcover Physical Pages. I so Excited to get it and look at it that feels amazing itself. It is Beautiful. If you reading this, you should read Percy Jackson & the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus, And The Kane Chronicles. This set After The Blood of Olympus And The Serpent’s Shadow And Before The Hidden Oracle. I’m Very Glad I Read It All. Story Plot are Short, But Really Great. Narratives are kind of cheesy but you know it’s Riordan Classic Humor Narration. Characters are Great with their personalities, moments, dialogues. The Action Scenes In Battle are a Thrilling Outstanding. Great Addictive to Read Pages learn from small part of Education. Although the Villain are not actually a evil Villain, he is Really Lacked, To Be Honest And That kind of bothers Me. Anyway, All 3 Short Stories Are Equal To the Best. I love It! If you are Riordan Fans, you read all Riordan Books, There’s a lot of Easter Eggs in the Kane Chronicles makes reference to the Percy Jackson’s World. For Examples, Amos Kane Say “Manhattan has Other Problems. Other Gods. It’s best we stay Separate” pg. 52 when Sadie point to the Empire States Building for a Safe Home. That is Really Small Shocking Surprises that we might hope to see them together as a Big Crossover. Fortunately, that is Exactly What We Wanted. Also There is Few like Lacy And Drew (From Heroes of Olympus) Appear at a School Dance where Sadie attends. Sadie And Walt encounter the ghost of Appius Claudius Iratus, a Roman ba Lives In Egypt in a Greco-Roman Burial Ground of Mummies In Bahariya And he say “di Immortales”. In the Kane Chronicles Graphic Novel, Sadie wears Camp Half-Blood shirt at the end of The Red Pyramid, And Carter wears Camp Jupiter shirt at the end of The a Throne of Fire. Oh, in the Last Olympian Graphic Novel, the Elevator Security Guard Reading The Serpent’s Shadow Shown. Then at the end of The Serpent’s Shadow, Sadie Say They’re picking up unidentified magical energy coming from Long Island where not only sets in The Son of Sobek started, But Setne started creates the inevitable to destroyed in humanity world. In Case You Didn’t Read The Kane Chronicles, Setne escaped after he tricked them, Carter And Sadie have to take care of the mission to stop Him at once, but then unexpected encounter with new visitors from another world. There is a Mentions in This about the Fact between the Greek and Egyptian- In History, Alexander the Great conquered the Egypt including the capital he called Alexandria. After he died, his General Ptolemy took over and wanted the Egyptians to proclaimed himself as their Pharaoh like God-King. He mix Greek and Egyptian Religion Like creates 2 Different Gods And Made Up a New zone. Then he tried to Created a combination of Greek and Egyptian Magic to making himself Immortal, however, he went step too far and he died. So That’s Explain of Setne’s Plan to do the Same. I already did my reviews for 3 Separate Crossover Short Stories In Goodreads. So Check It Out. THE SON OF SOBEK- 4.85/5 This were Told by Carter’s 1st POV Setne’s Plan- release a Huge Crocodile called Petsuchos (a Greek Word), a Son of the Sobek (Egyptian Crocodile God) that is not physical creature, but a enchanted necklace that any reptiles wear and transform into the next Petsuchos. After hearing reports, Carter goes to investigates Himself try to capture a creature (reporter called It the Long Island Swamp Monster) in the ponds and marshes near the Montauk Highway On Long Island South Shore. Then he meet teenager that none other than Percy Jackson who try to track a Monstrous Crocodile who terrorized Long Island as his home turf for Weeks.

It is for the Best to keep 2 Worlds Separate as Possible, But they always stay in Touch to seen Each Other Again. I really surprised that This was on the New York Times Best Seller List, Highlight remain as Riordan’s Best Short Story Collection Ever! I feel kind of Sad that they never seen each other again, I just hope that Riordan, One Day, create the Epic Mythology Crossover Series features Protagonists, Companion Animals, Friends, Mentors, And the rest of Gang Together from The Mythology of Greek, Roman, Egyptian, And Norse. Like Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War And Endgame. Don’t You Think? Could Be Very Excitement if it Exist.

    First up, I need to say that I started listening to this novella collection immediately after finishing the Kane Chronicles. The Kane Chronicles have amazingly talented narrators and therefore I was gutted to find out the narrator for these novellas was none other than Rick Riordan himself and while he didn't do a bad job - in that they were easy to listen to - he didn't do a great job either. It was like being read a bedtime story by your dad... Soothing and nice but not what you'd expect of an First up, I need to say that I started listening to this novella collection immediately after finishing the Kane Chronicles. The Kane Chronicles have amazingly talented narrators and therefore I was gutted to find out the narrator for these novellas was none other than Rick Riordan himself and while he didn't do a bad job - in that they were easy to listen to - he didn't do a great job either. It was like being read a bedtime story by your dad... Soothing and nice but not what you'd expect of an audiobook. However! You get used to it pretty quickly and the content of the novellas more than made up for any complaints about the narration. I've been super excited at the thought of the Egyptian magicians meeting the Greek demigods since Carter's uncle Amos made a comment about "Manhatten having its own problems" - all the way back in the first book of the Kane Chronicles - and the meeting of the two worlds didn't disappoint! Up first was the Son of Sobek - a kick-ass adventure featuring Carter Kane and Percy Jackson. The story was pretty basic - giant crocodile terrorising an area - but it provided all that was needed to introduce both worlds while opening the door to future co-operation. It was told from the pov of Carter and I almost died in happiness at seeing Percy through his eyes... (Little Percy Jackson has grown into one kick ass dude and I love him.) I loved how, despite being super short, the Son of Sobek highlighted the strengths and weakness of both characters and didn't elevate one above the other. It was made clear that they are different but neither of them is better or worse for being/not being the child of a god. It was funny, it was exciting and I immediately wanted more! The Staff of Serapis was the second novella and told from the pov of Annabeth. A funky monster catches her attention in the subway station - a strange blending for Greek and Egyptian - so using that big brain of hers, Annabeth deduces that it's somehow related to Percy's adventures a month earlier with some Egyptian guy and resolves to take care of it. Her path crosses with that of Sadie Kane - Carter's sister - and they join forces to stop the rise of Serapis. It was hilarious watching Annabeth with Sadie. Both are smart, fierce and resourceful but Sadie is also impulsive and a bit random - much like Percy! So Annabeth's commentary had me in stitches. The Staff of Serapis was a much longer novella than The Son of Sobek and despite it being a lot of fun watching the girls rock the girl power thing, I really missed Carter and Percy! Luckily, The Crown of Ptolemy - novella number three - brings all four of them together for the final battle against the mad magician who is determined to make himself a god by combining Greek and Egyptian magic. This final instalment was from the pov of Percy and I never wanted it to end! My favourites, rocking their power and magic, battling a big bad to save the world, making new friends, making me laugh with their banter and keeping me throroughly entertained from beginning to end... Can't really ask for more than that! I'm not entirely sure I'd recommend these novellas to someone who hadn't read at least one of the series - Percy Jackson or Kane Chronicles - but if you have read one then it's a nice introduction to the other and if you've read both? I can't see how you'd fail to enjoy them. If Rick Riordan ever decides to write full length cross over novels, I'm here for it.

    Demigods & Magicians by Rick Riordan is a collection of three novellas. These novellas are crossovers for the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and the Kane Chronicles series. The stories included in this book are The Son of Sobek, The Staff of Serapis, and The Crown of Ptolemy. It was so much fun to see Percy and Annabeth cross paths with Carter and Sadie. I hope we get more crossovers like these.
