New Story from Rick Riordan

You might remember last year, Rick Riordan published “The Son of Sobek” as an extra crossover story in the The Serpent’s Shadow. The story featured both Percy Jackson and Carter Kane together in the same story. It’s crazy when characters jump out of their own series and into other characters’ series, right? Well, Riordan has done it again. He announced on his blog last week that the new U.S. paperback edition of The Mark of Athena in stores now features a story with Annabeth Chase and Sadie Kane! It has the awesome title “The Staff of Serapis.”

The Staff of Serapis book coverIf you don’t want to buy The Mark of Athena paperback, the story will be available in e-formats, with the cover above, on May 20. Or you could, you know, rush to the library and see if they have the new paperback edition with the story at the end. Tell the librarian it MUST be the 2014 paperback edition!

What do you think? Did you like “The Son of Sobek” enough to want a second story? Do you think Riordan should write an entire series combining all his characters?? Leave a Comment.

    Yes, yes, YES! I love Rick Riordan’s books and I’m so mad because each book takes a year to come out and I read them in less than a week!

      i think rick riordan should combine all the characters of the kane chronicles, percy jackson and the heroes of olympus into one 5-book series. that would be totally awsome!!

    Loved your kane chronicle series. Loved your percy jackson series,& I know I’m going to love your Norse mythology books. While I wait for that series ill just read your roman mythology books.

    i reckon that Riordan should write a whole series, because i love his books so much that i have read the percy jackson series like 4 times but i don’t think that he should combine all of the characters because i don’t think it would be a good book hope you guys agree oh and i am new here so please friend me or post a shout out thanks
