Rick Riordan has announced that Percy Jackson and Carter Kane will finally come face to face in a new short story that will be released with the paperback edition of The Serpent’s Shadow, out May 7!
Best of all, there’s a sneak peek available on Scribd!
Here’s what Rick had to say about the 40-or-so page novella:
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’ve already read The Serpent’s Shadow and didn’t plan to buy the paperback edition, fear not! Rick says The Son of Sobek will also be released as an e-book single and an audio single (narrated by Rick!) a little later in the summer.
