Annette Powlis I found the entire Kane Chronicles to be wonderfully interesting and entertaining. Much better than the Percy Jackson series.

EDIT 6/20/13:

Well that was awesome......... I can't even express my pure love for this crossover. AND THEY TOTALLY GOT THAT THEY WERE FROM DIFFERENT MYTHOLOGIES! *Tears of joy* More! More! More!

What if when the 7 are closing the doors of death Percy calls Carter and.....? Ugh, I can't even. What if the future crossover book includes the Norse Mythology kids?! The best end to HoO would be all four mythologies uniting! 1. I mean..... Can you just imagine all those awesome characters together..? :

A refreshing, short read from Uncle Rick the second. <3

Carter coincidentally (or perhaps not) meets Percy in Long Island as Carter tries to capture a huge monster crocodile called “petshuchos”, the son of the crocodile god, Sobek which Percy has been trying to seize for a long time already (Long Island being his home turf). Initially, the meeting wasn’t very civil because of unfamiliarity but they call a truce in a united mission to capture the monster. Of course, it’s Mr. Riordan

So I just finished the story. And there's only one word running through my mind:

MORE Dear God, MORE. Please. :'O


EDIT: IT'S OUT YESSS. The version with the SS paperback edition, that is.

So incredibly excited for this! We've been waiting for a crossover ever since Rick wrote 'The Red Pyramid' and we finally have one! :) So. Psyched.

Ok, seriously what do you guys expect? Ofcourse it was AWESOME!! Rick is one of those authors who NEVER EVER fails to satisfy his fans. It was hilarious, amusing, and like all of his books, it had a lot of action. Both were absolutely confused at first, but(view spoiler)

It’s so short! There’s hardly a plot! And I'm OK with that!

Yup Carter and Percy meet:
Even if the guy was a jerk, magicians weren’t supposed to go around sucker-punching kids into orbit with the Fist of Horus.

There’s a giant monster:
Unfortunately, the all-American scene was kind of ruined by the monster, who was busily eating a green Prius hatchback with a bumper sticker that read MY POODLE IS SMARTER THAN YOUR HONOR STUDENT.

Finally got my hands on the ebook. I actually read it a few weeks ago, but have neglected to write my review of the book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the crossover of Percy and Carter's worlds. The story was good for its length, and I found that it did not disappoint.
Hopefully, we will see more crossovers between the two in future. (view spoiler)

Completely forgot I had downloaded this haha :)
Mostly not good reading day so thought I would re-visit a couple old friends <3

“Getting eaten by a giant crocodile was bad enough.
The kid with the glowing sword only made my day worse.

Not bad, it was fun to see Percy and Carter reluctantly teaming up and fighting together but I wish it had been longer. It was 50/50 for me, The humor and characterizations were spot on, just... it felt like it should have been a few pages long
All my crossover feels are tingling happy happy *rocks back and forth smiling*

THERE'S A COVER PEOPLE!!!*goes to Percy Jackson fans phone line* Quick spread the word!!!
OH MY GODS!!!!! That was amazing. And Hilarious!! I loved it how both Carter and Percy were so shocked and amazed at each other. I wonder how is Percy going to use that hieroglyph. My dream would be to use in in the final battle in the last book of the Heroes of Olympus. Don't you think they might need some Egyptian help from the Brooklyn House Gang?
Feb 01, 2013 Jersey rated it really liked it
Wow, I mean, Holy Hades!

This is a great cross-over but I was left hanging! I can sense something about this. I hope Rick Riordan will do a series about this cross-over or atleast continue it! And the words Carter said just build up this excited anticipation:

‘Good working with you, Carter.’

We shook. No sparks flew. No thunder boomed. But I still couldn’t escape the feeling that we’d opened a door, meeting like this – a door that we might not be able to close.

‘You too, Percy.’

Please teach me

I still can't believe this happened!! A crossover such awesome as Percy and Carter is just so heart warming and precious you just end up smiling the whole freaking day. Totally worth reading even if you haven't read the The Kane Chronicles!! (like me, sorry). But I'm totally hooked on Carter!!

Anyone else completly freaking out? I am barely holding it together! Percy AND Carter? I missed him so much!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH RICK RIORDAN WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?????? Ok calming down. But I am so excited this is going to be completly awesome!!!!!!!

After reading the sample I can only predict that there will be at least a skirmish between Carter and Percy. Personally I have always wanted to know who was stronger. I mean near water Percy is unstoppable also this is before (view spoiler)

¡Aburrido!. Esta bien que estaba cansada cuando lo empece a leer pero me dio más sueño todavía.

¿Habrá sido porque es desde el POV de Carter? I guess, porque le falto el carisma de Percy.

Now, first of, I just want everyone to know how I've been dying to have this cross-over ever since during Red Pyramid where Amos (I think) made some kind of reference that he's very much aware of the gods living in the Empire State building while looking at the building itself across from the East River (I think).

Sadly, I was not able to read the follow-up books of the Kane Chronicles.

Anyways, everyone's debating on what timeline was this meeting done. Imo, this was done before Hera whisked Perc

Okay, so don't kill me but...I haven't read the Kane Chronicles.
I KNOW, I know I feel terrible and I should be executed for this unspeakable crime but, seriously, this short story convinced me to start reading them ASAP.
This little crossover encounter was CRAY. I mean, we already know Percy Jackson is the baddest badass there is and I'm assuming Carter Kane would be the Egyptian equivalent. So together?
The badassery is off the freaking charts.
What I really loved was when they first met

Moram reci da sam malo razocaran ovom knjigom. Uzmemo dva eksta zabavna lika sa skroz razlicitim mocima i na kraju nista od toga se ne iskoristi. Scena borbe je odlicna ali problem je sto je ta jedna borba u sustini cela knjiga a za to nije bas dovoljno epic. Plus, a to je mozda moja greska, ali nisam obratio paznju kolko strana ovo ima pa sam se iznenadio kada sam zavrsio sa knigom za pola sata.

Nadam se barem da ce veca prica koja spaja ove tri knjizice biti vrednija paznje.

I should have filmed my freak-out session once I found about this. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed by the second and third Kane Chronicles, but I still love the characters and idea. Ever since Carter mentioned seeing pegasi over the river, and Drew and Lacy were at Sadie's school dance... Well... I've been waiting for this a long time! :)

‘What are you?’ I demanded. ‘Part combat magician, part water elementalist? What nome are you with?’
The kid laughed bitterly. ‘Dude, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t hang out with gnomes. Satyrs, sometimes. Even Cyclopes. But not gnomes.’

It’s kind of short story by Rick Riordan where two of the heroes he wrote in two different series meets. Percy Jackson from The Heroes of Olympus series and Carter Kane from The Kane Chronicles series. Both are the lead character.

He stood to go. ‘One more thing,’ he said. ‘If this somebody, whoever threw us together … if he’s an enemy to both of us – what if we need each other to fight him? How do I contact you?’
I considered that. Then I made a snap decision. ‘Can I write something on your hand?’
He frowned. ‘Like your phone number?’
‘Uh … well, not exactly.’ I took out my stylus and a vial of magic ink. Percy held out his palm. I drew a hieroglyph there – the Eye of Horus. As soon as the symbol was complete,

I found out that this book was coming out TODAY.
And I also found out that it comes out on June 18 as an e-book.
And I also found out that if you buy it as an e-book, you get what Ricky here calls a "gift".
And people, it is not ONLY gift, it is MORE than a gift.
