(copying this from my journal because everyone needs to know!!)

OMG uncle rick confirmed that he wrote a kane and percy crossover!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!! :iconcryingrainbowsplz:

So, yes, it's true. As announced today in Publisher's Weekly Children's Bookshelf, I have written a crossover story featuring Carter Kane and Percy Jackson. The story is called "The Son of Sobek."

This is something fans have been asking me to do for years, but why this story and why now? My publisher Disney-Hyperion was looking for something fun to add to the paperback version of The Serpent's Shadow, which comes out May 7 -- something to encourage folks who haven't yet tried the Kane Chronicles to pick up the series. I decided what the heck. Let's throw Carter and Percy together in a Greek-Egyptian dilemma and see what happens. The result was SO much fun to write.

If you buy the paperback version of Serpent's Shadow on May 7, "The Son of Sobek" will be at the end of the book, no extra charge.

"But what if I've already bought The Serpent's Shadow?" you ask. "Do I have to buy it again just to read this story?"

Well, the story will be released first in the paperback edition, since that's what I wrote it for, but fear not -- there will be other ways to get "The Son of Sobek." Disney will be releasing it a little later in the summer as an e-single and audio, read by yours truly -- the first time I've ever narrated the entire audio for my own story. As soon as I have more information about the e-release, I will let you know. As always, this information only applies to the US market, as that's the only country I get info for. I can't say if/when it will be available in other countries and other translations.

Now please be aware this is a SHORT STORY. In print, it runs about forty pages, though I think it packs a lot of adventure into those pages. It's not a full novel, because I have been spending most of my time working on The House of Hades, and I know you don't want me taking more time away from that project than I absolutely have to! The e-single will be priced accordingly, and I hope you find the adventure worth it. I certainly had a blast mixing up the Egyptian and Greek worlds.

An excerpt from the story can be found on Disney's Facebook Kane Chronicles' page. Enjoy!

Hey, maybe for those of us who don't want to buy another copy of the book, someone can post the story online for a short period of time.

Yes, ~Judilin it's true. Rick left us, his fans, this little hint in "The Serpent's Shadow". And honestly, I was kind of curious why he had done it, since he probaby knew quite well that fans will go crazy and beg him to write a crossover. I never expected him to actually do it! Go figure! I've always thought that mixing Greek and Egyptian mythology would be too hard, but the man said he "had a blast" doing it! So yeah, I guess there's nothing too complicated for Rick Riordan! :D I almost can't wait! It certainly sounds like a good read.

I'm reading The Serpent's Shadow and ther was that girl called Drew in Sadi's school. I think she was the girl from Camp Half Blood, daughter of Aphrodite. And the other girl from school, Lacy, said she knew Drew from a camp and there was girl called Lacy, Aphrodites daugther too, in Lost Hero :O And Amos said something about Manhanttan and other gods in Red Pyramid.

I think it was confirmed by RR that she, indeed, was the same Drew (and the same Lacy) than in the PJO/HoO series :aww:

This is so cool! I was wondering if Mr. Riordan would ever do that. And even though it's not too original in terms of title (I mean he's used "Son of Neptune" already, so "Son of Sobek" isn't too far from that.)

Dude, I've been waiting for this since the Red Pyramid. When Amos made that comment about Manhatten... I really just had to bust out laughing.
NOW ALL MY DREAMS HAVE COME TRUE. I CAN DIE HAPPY.
