Annabeth, distracted, lost her grip on the crab monster, and it threw her off — slamming her head into the edge of a seat. She had bits of seaweed in her hair, and her backpack was wrapped round one of her combat boots, but she looked more outraged than injured. For a moment, Annabeth was too stunned to move. 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. She began rooting quietly through her bag. The air around him rippled with heat.
The blonde girl from the train leaned over her, tugging on her arm. A single two-by-four was nailed across the doorway in a half-hearted attempt to keep out trespassers, but the door itself was slightly ajar. Annabeth had barely finished coaching Sadie when the ruined building shook, debris exploded outward, and Serapis emerged, roaring and cursing. I really hope Ric Sadie + Annabeth, ultimate girl power! The magic must have been too much for Sadie. Air rushed through the tunnel as a train arrived. A wave of red energy rippled through the car. But on the bright side, more Percy! Together, magician and demigod must face Serapis, a terrifying god who draws his power from both Greek and Egyptian mythology and is bent on global conquest.
She dodged a brick wall and a fuse box. The first two stories are available as e-singles, and also appear in the paperback versions of Mark of Athena for Sobek and House of Hades for Serapis.

However, Athena returns and Annabeth realizes they need to destroy the dog head on his staff representing the future to destroy him.
Becalmed in the middle of the tornado, the three-headed monster tried to stand. After his death, his family was cursed for generations. I control the past, present and future. The god Serapis leaped from his ledge. His staff's attempts to reunite and reach him draws the attention of and who team up to stop him. Then my uncle takes over the House of Life and oversees hundreds of magicians around the world. I feel bad for Percy though.
She felt a warm tugging sensation in her gut, as if she had a fishhook in her belly button, pulling her towards the monster. I look forward to seeing who will meet next. I can always come back and finish the job. She was always a softie when it came to animals, even if they were part of a magical evil creature trying to kill her. I definitely suggest these short stories, as I suggest all of Rick Riordan's stuff I believe he's secretly a writing god.
If a demigod could learn to pass through walls like that, run straight through monsters … But that was a conversation for another time. Usually we fight with staff and wand. Both sets of eyes fixed on Annabeth as if thinking, Do you have a death wish? All the air was forced out of her lungs. Then it threw back its heads and roared in harmony. When I read the , I was really amazed by the crossover.
He is also the main deity of Alexandria. His bronze skin was covered with shimmering tattoos of hieroglyphs, Greek letters, and other languages. Past the subway tracks, she saw nothing except an abandoned apartment tower, fenced off and forlorn against the late afternoon sky. His headgear, however, ruined the look. At least I know the full extent of it.
Serapis is also very narcissist and arrogant, he even calls Setne, one of the most powerful magicians of all time, a fool who doesn't understand the power he have summoned. You are nothing compared to the one who awakened me, and even he does not understand the power he has unleashed. Slung over her left shoulder was a blue nylon backpack with a curved ivory stick — a boomerang? When confronted by and , reveals that he summoned Serapis as an experiment and watched the battle between Annabeth, and Serapis from a distance, taking notes on the spells Serapis used to build his lighthouse. Sadie and Annabeth realize from what Serapis told them that Setne is trying to use the crown of Ptolemy to become immortal and that Serapis was likely just a test of their capabilities like the was of and a few weeks before. Annabeth was on her way home after an interview for internship at a local architecture firm when she saw a weird monster and decided to follow it and met Sadie Kane who was fighting a similar monster.
