Goodreads Description: 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.

My Review: 
I enjoyed this book, as always with anything written by Riordan. How awesome is it that Annabeth and Sadie met so soon after Percy and Carter and that there seems to be a huge plot that has been hinted at within both stories. These books would make on amazing book series so lets hope that Riordan creates one. I guessed correctly before that there would be a crossover book between the Egyptians and Greeks when it was hinted at a lot in the last Kane Chronicles books so lets hope this happens to… one can dream…
Annabeth and Sadie are both quirky and clever characters so when they came together they were so well matched. I loved the way that the addition of Egyptians to Annabeth actually confused her for once (That never happens!) where Sadie was very laid back about learning about the Greeks. I can’t wait for all 4 characters to be baught together as I  bet a lot of comedy moments will happen! I love crossovers, even getting excited when one character crosses to a spin off on TV! So this book was just brilliant and I can’t wait for the third one even though they are too short!!!!!!

Quotes: 

When weak, act strong.”

“No one is like me,” Sadie agreed. “My amazingness is unique.” 

“It’s just that each time my world gets stranger, I think: Right. We’re at maximum oddness now. At least I know the full extent of it. First, I find out my brother and I are descended from the pharaohs and have magic powers. All right. No problem. Then I find out my dead father has merged his soul with Osiris and Why not? Then my uncle takes over the House of Life and oversees hundreds of magicians around the world. Then my boyfriend turns out to be a hybrid magician boy/immortal god of funerals. And all the while I’m thinking, Of course! Keep calm and carry on! I’ve adjusted! And then you come along on a random Thursday, la-di-da, and say, Oh, by the way, Egyptian gods are just one small part of the cosmic absurdity. We’ve also got the Greeks to worry about! Hooray! ” Sadie Kane

  1. How did I not know about this story?! I haven't read the one with Percy and Carter either. They both sound so good!
    I love that last quote by Sadie. Poor girl, she's got a seriously messed up life, at least she handle's it really well.
    I really hope I get to read this some time, but I'm not an ebook person so I wonder if I'll ever get around to it. I'm glad to hear that it's awesome, although there was little doubt since it's Annabeth AND Sadie. Be still my fangirl heart 😀
