To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It honestly wasn't that good as I have expected… I was quite disappointed, cause it all happened too fast, and the fact just four demigods and magicians saving the world in such a short time didn't fit well with me… And also the friendship development was too bad.
Rick is the master of myths...This amazing combination of two series was effective,touching and hilarious.This is completely worth your time, being a serios as it is funny aand interesting to those of all ages.

Overall Rating: 4/5 This book contains three connecting stories for a Percy Jackson and Kanes crossover. I'm sure they were published separately somewhere, but this has them all in one book. The first two stories have the two boys meet, and then the two girls meet, and the final one brings all four together. There are a few pictures clumped together in the last story. I don't think that was good placement. They could have been spread around to be in tandem with the events they represent, but whatever. I also noticed in Sadie's solo picture, she's missing her highlights. -The Son of Sobek: 4/5 I love how Carter and Percy met. That part was well done and amusing. This story is told from Carter's perspective, and the two spend pretty much the whole story in combat. -The Staff of Serapis: 3/5 This one is told from Annabeth's perspective. Annabeth and Sadie have an action packed adventure combating a resurrected god. Neither of them are favorites of mine, but I didn't mind this story. It was better than I expected considering who the main characters were. I think it's funny how for once Percy was more cautious about something than Annabeth. I thought she would have had the same thoughts as Carter did in the first story, but she didn't. She just rolled with everything, no secrets, without a second thought. -The Crown of Ptolemy: 4/5 The final story, told by Percy. It was kind of him to make his first meeting of Carter sound more dignified than it actually was. This story shows a lot of mixing of Greek and Egyptian magic. It made the story and combat rather interesting. I love how Carter and Sadie are just like alternate versions of Percy and Annabeth.
it was good the kanes and greeks put together greet i would like to see more in the future mabye greek gods and Egyptian gods or normons but the book was not that long and i read it quickly maybe add another 100/200 pages in the future rick riordan is one of my favriote writers i like books please make more books
Hear me out. These companion books from Riordan are usually a solid 3 stars sort of situation. But I do think this one went a step above.
And no. It's not just cause when I see words printed on a page that go like "sea green eyes and an orange t-shirt" make me grin like a lunatic. Promise.
Having finished [book: The Serpent's Shadow|12893742] 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.
Love the way they made the pages look like a diary put together hastily. I can’t wait until my boy is old enough to start these stories on his own. We have 3/4 of Mr.Rioridan mythological stories and I’m still snatching up goodies after all these years. (And having to repurchase many of his works due to getting others hooked with his worlds) It’s hard for this age to buy books but in certain cases you can’t hesitate. If I can’t get a book back from someone it’s a good sign that the book was worth the buy.
