The Staff of Serapis {by Rick Riordan}

Title: The Staff of Serapis [novella]
Series: Percy Jackson & Kane Chronicles Crossover #2
Author: Rick Riordan
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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. . . 

I didn't think it could get much better than Percy + Carter in The Son of Sobek. But apparently, the only thing better than Percy + Carter is… Sadie + Annabeth.

I mean, I loved this story. Annabeth and Sadie have the same witty, sarcastic, sassy personalities, which could have been either really bad or really good. Thankfully, it was really good, as the girls were able to hit it off--at least, well enough to fight a monster.

Since this was a short story, I really don't have much to say. It was well-written, hilarious, and captivating like all of Rick Riordan's work. If you've read both series, you know the explanations for certain things, like Sadie turning into a bird. So seeing them from each other's point of view, and just how strange it was interesting and just funny.

If you need something to hold you over, or are missing the Kane's (or even if you're not) then you need to read this. Seriously.
