About the book: 

Magic meets mythology in this explosive trilogy of short stories from Rick Riordan.

When a mysterious magical disturbance draws magicians Carter and Sadie Kane to New York, they meet another pair of kids with abilities as incredible as their own: Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase!

And it's no coincidence that they've all been drawn to the Big Apple. A crazed sorcerer, Setne, is stirring up double trouble, unleashing dangerous creatures from both Greek and Egyptian myth.

With Setne determined to devour the gods themselves to obtain the gift of immortality, demigods and magicians must combine their powers to stop him, before it's too late...

Features the three short stories The Son of SobekThe Staff of Serapis and The Crown of Ptolemy, plus an exciting extract from The Hidden Oracle, the first book in Rick Riordan's latest series, The Trials of Apollo.

About the Author

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief  first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
