The Internet had almost nothing on them, except that they were legendary animals that lured their prey by imitating human voices. I typed in a list of things we had in the room—torches, Celestial bronze, poison, Snickers bars, golf club—hoping that some sort of magic formula would pop up for a leucrota death ray. No such luck. My head was throbbing. How was that possible? Meanwhile, Thalia had been trying to activate her new bracelet, with no luck. We looked at each other, and I knew we were both out of ideas.
I thought about what Hal Green had told us. All demigods started off hopeful. All of them had ideas for escape. All of them failed. Thalia and I had survived too much to give up now. Hal walked over and gestured at the keyboard. We changed places. Running out of time, he typed. Luke is right.
Thalia, give me your hands. He turned to her. Thalia hesitated. Outside the apartment, the leucrotae growled and scraped against the corridor. They sounded hungry. He winced, then took a shaky breath. He looked up at Thalia with an expression of sympathy.
He turned to the keyboard and hesitated a long time before starting to type. You are destined to survive today, Hal typed. He typed, Someday soon, you will sacrifice yourself to save your friends. I see things that are…hard to describe.
Years of solitude.
You will stand tall and still, alive but sleeping. You will change once, and then change again. Your path will be sad and lonely. But someday you will find your family again. Thalia clenched her fists. She started to speak, then paced the room. Finally she slammed her palm against the bookshelves.
Changing, sleeping? You call that a future? Thalia almost backed up into the drapes. You told us that Thalia will survive. Did you see anything about the bracelet? Or the goat? We need something that will help. He typed, I saw nothing about the bracelet. I know a little about Amaltheia the goat, but I doubt it will help. The goat nursed Zeus when he was a baby. Later, Zeus slew her and used her skin to make his shield—the aegis.
I scratched my chin. Typical god thing to do. Thalia, you know anything about the shield? But why had Amaltheia led us here? A bad thought occurred to me. Hal Green held out his hands to me. His snakeskin jacket glistened as if it were trying to shed. He nodded. I saw fire. I waited. Finally he typed. She and Zeus took turns using it in battle. I also saw a sacrifice in your future. No wonder the others gave up—just like you gave up.
His eyes flew open. Her tone was dangerous. You mean today? Is that going to help us? Because Luke would never betray anyone. What if she survived. If he saw anything in my future that would help. I forced myself to stay calm. Hard to be sure.
I had to try. She nodded.
But if he survives today. His hands were so frail. For a. He had told us his curse would end today. He yanked his hands away and stared at me in terror. That happened a lot with mythological monsters—they eventually re-formed from the pit of Tartarus.
My tongue felt like sandpaper. His path is hard to see. It would frighten away their enemies. A wave of dread washed over me. But also a betrayal. Reluctantly he typed. Hal took a deep breath and closed his eyes.
In fact. What if we both survived. His grim expression told me it was my turn for a fortunetelling. I gave him my hands. You lure demigods here. A choice. I read to the end of the list. He pointed at his bookshelves. He tossed titles and flipped through pages as fast as we did.
Hal Green immediately backed down. Perhaps my dad. I almost killed Luke. If someone came across it and learned the secret of Greek fire…well. There was only one thing missing. After lots of fruitless searching. His face was animated. Everything we needed was in this room. I thought he might lunge at Thalia. I could swear the old man was terrified of me now. I scanned the list of ingredients. The recipe for Greek fire. An idea buzzed in the back of my head.
And even if we were outside. But I thought that stuff was just a legend. Whatever nightmares were in my future.
You can summon lightning???? We started pulling out books. Last time. Greek weapons. An article popped up immediately. Thalia peered over my shoulder. I had to survive today first. You have any fire left?
A lot of those are really old. Hal typed.
But Greek fire will turn this room into an inferno. Time passed too quickly. I looked at the empty enclosure. A sacrifice in your future. It will spread through the entire house in a matter of seconds. You guys should probably step back.
The glass should keep it from exploding until we break the jar. I tried to focus on my work. Finally I had a pot full of goopy black gunk.
What did he mean? You can call down a lightning strike on the house and blast it through the electrical wiring. My mind ran through a dozen different strategies. Too many ifs. Every time I blinked. You do understand how dangerous Greek fire is? I swallowed. But one thing was clear: My future terrified him.
Or maybe I just got lucky. My face beaded with sweat as I mixed the ingredients. Outside in the hallway. And to summon the lightning. Maybe Hermes was watching out for me. The drapes on the window blocked out all sunlight. I explode or something. Whatever it touches. When those bars rose and the leucrotae attacked. I sealed the lid. Hal picked up his green leather diary. He handed the book to me. Hal took a shaky breath. And one more thing— He set the pen in his diary and unclipped the Celestial bronze dagger from his belt.
You have an important future. You and Thalia wait in the closet. I am the logical choice for bait. But his expression was grim and determined. Keep it. Your choices will change the world. It might help you with your decisions. Finally Hal found an empty page and scribbled something. He met my eyes. I shook my head. He wrote. He would do one last heroic thing. It has my predictions. We both jumped. I might have avoided some stupid mistakes. Over at the computer desk. He scribbled. I appreciate it.
And yet. I think I finally understand why I was cursed. I took a deep breath. Apollo was right. I can communicate with the leucrotae. You can learn from my mistakes. White smoke billowed from the computer. I promise. I saw pages and pages of neat. He gestured for me to follow him. He offered it to me.
I want you to take this diary. He looked like a demigod. He scribbled something and handed me the diary. This was his chance at redemption. The note read. The last word read: I think it might help you. He returned to writing: That blade was a gift from the girl I saved. Sometimes the future really is better left a mystery. And besides. She promised me it would always protect its owner. We walked to the closet doorway. We scrambled into the cage. Come on.
We crawled through a metal duct into another bedroom and stumbled for the door. From the bathroom. The wall behind her was blistered and blackened. A red hoof thrust its way through the crack. Then something grabbed my arm. Then I pulled Thalia into the closet with me. Thalia pulled me into the chute.
I managed to punch its snout. Inside the chute. I slipped his diary and dagger into my pack. We were out of time. All three of the monsters hissed and growled and trampled across the furniture. This is your last meal!
I twisted. The creatures galloped toward the bathroom. The electrical outlet had completely melted. The old man held out his hand. I lunged for the exit panel. A split second later. One of the leucrotae snarled in surprise and turned to follow us. Thalia sat up grinning. Just then. Thalia wriggled through as the metal plate started to bend the golf club. He gave her a brave smile. The trapdoor ground open slowly.
The panel closed. I looked away. The building exploded. I watched the terrified leucrota run straight into the nearest drapes. It snapped its bone-plated jaws at her. What was it called? Flames licked the wallpaper and the carpet steamed.
Thalia had been destined to find that treasure. We got to the base of the stairs. Through the smoke. Its pointed ears were on fire. The monster steamed.
She grabbed her spear. We stumbled and coughed. Thank the gods—or thank blind luck—Thalia understood. The monster yelped like a puppy and retreated. We reached the stairs. It belonged to the child of Zeus.
Something finally clicked in my mind: It began yelling. I could hardly breathe. Thalia thrust the shield toward the leucrota. I saw Thalia try to spear the monster again. We burst into the hallway. Its red fur was singed black. I suppose it had been far enough away from the explosion to survive the initial blast and had somehow escaped the bedroom. The smoke was so thick.
My eyes stung from the smoke. I heard Halcyon Green. It must have been the one that followed us into the enclosure. In the center.
She tapped the bracelet. Together we stood and watched the mansion burn. My chest was tight. The gods had cursed him. I screamed.
I know. We had no plan. I was sprawled in the traffic circle. Then we lay low until full dark. We cleaned up in the public restrooms as best we could. We were bone tired. I will learn from your mistakes. But I was feeling bitter and angry. Thalia and I had learned to distrust the police and anybody else with authority.
Finally Thalia caught up to me. I know that sounds like crazy talk. The next thing I knew. My throat burned. Black draperies burst into sheets of red fire. Being runaway minors. I wanted to get as far as possible from that burning mansion. The roof collapsed and smoke billowed into the sky. It sounds comical now. We ran through the streets of Richmond until we found a small park. I thought. If the gods ever treat me that badly. I can only assume that the shockwave blasted the front door open and pushed us outside.
They can come down here and tell me to my face. If that makes the dudes up on Mount Olympus unhappy. Bricks crumbled. We wandered in a daze through neighborhoods and industrial areas. I will fight back. Thalia let loose a sob. What had he seen in my future that scared him so much? I looked for Thalia and instead found myself staring at the bronze face of Medusa. The sound of sirens brought me to my senses. The mortals would want to question us. Halcyon Green had written.
A tear etched through the soot on her face. We crept along the wall of the warehouse. Fortunately my reflexes were good from years of fighting. This time I knew better than to look at the face of Medusa.
I sense it. We ate in silence. Thalia looked too stunned to move. A hammer hurtled straight at my face. The little girl struggled. She touched the shield and it shrank back into a bracelet. I shouted. We turned into a dark alleyway that dead-ended at a loading dock piled with old scrap metal. The food tasted like cardboard. This is Luke. The hammer went skidding across the pavement. It would take at least a day to get there.
My ears started tingling. Thalia readied her spear. Most of the windows were broken. She dropped her spear. We crept toward the loading bay until we stood over the pile of metal. She still had her spear and shield ready. Thalia shivered. Thalia grabbed her spear and summoned Aegis. I could see a name painted on the side of the red brick building: I split my ham sandwich with Thalia.
I understood why Amaltheia had wanted Thalia to claim it. As soon as I lifted the sheet of tin. We stopped for a rest near an old warehouse. In the dim light of the moon. A sheet of corrugated tin quivered on the dock. I gestured for her to hold back. Something —someone—was underneath. I reached for the piece of corrugated metal and mouthed.
I pointed at the platform. She whispered. Eventually she stopped kicking. She felt cold. Her ribs were bony under her flannel pajamas. I wondered how long this little girl had gone without eating. She was even younger than I had been when I ran away. Despite her fear, she looked at me with large eyes. They were startlingly gray, beautiful and intelligent. A demigod—no doubt about it. You get some back story for Luke Castellan. And some of these story are reference in Hero's of Olympus.
I really liked Haley's Riordan short story Son of Magic. And full color illustration of some of the Hero's of Olympus.
Sorry 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Illustration s missing from Kindle Version?? FolkertsWe pre-ordered the Kindle version to be delivered to my i-pad. The stories were a lot of fun read aloud to enjoy with a family of 5, ranging in age from 12 to 72! We are enjoying the entire "Heroes of Olympus" series, and were delighted to find these short stories to enjoy over the summer while waiting for the next book in the series to be released in October. Leo explains that Buford , a temperamental walking table has fled from the cabin after being polished with Windex, taking along two syncopators vital to the ship's creation.
Leo then reveals that a mixture of deadly fluids will mix in less than an hour and destroy the woods. Jason and Piper agree to help and the trio head into the forest. Leo then ponders about his seclusion in Bunker 9, instead of enjoying the camp and how fast Christmas has arrived.
Jason finds tracks and as the three decide whether it is Buford's or not a naiad tells them to be quiet or her crazy cousins would hear them. With no choice, the trio press on, soon reaching the site of the Battle of the Labyrinth. Piper than finds Buford heading into the forest, but before Jason follows, Leo orders his friends to hide behind the collapsed boulders of Zeus' Fist. Maenads , followers of Dionysus , soon skip into the clearing and disturb a drakon.
Before Jason or Piper could help, the Maenads ask the drakon if it's Dionysus. It answers by attacking, but the Maenads rip the drakon to shreds. They then discover the trio's location and ask Leo the same question. Leo states that he is the wine god, and tries fruitless efforts to escape, but to no avail. Slowly, the Maenads figure out the truth and order their deaths. The three barely manage to escape to the naiad 's brook where Piper informs them that they can't kill the Maenads, because they'll be cursed by Dionysus.
Leo thinks of a plan and tells Jason to find Buford while he and Piper lead the Maeneds back to Bunker 9. They reluctantly agree and split up. Leo and Piper successfully lead the Maenads to the bunker. Leo gives Piper a button and she climbs up the catwalks, trying to distract the vicious nymphs. Leo hastily puts together a trap, and sets himself as live bait as the Argo II threatens to explode in under twelve minutes.
The Maenads regroup, but before they could attack, Leo tells Piper to push the button, and it unleashes a party, distracting the nymphs. The demigod launches himself onto a disco ball as a golden net, made from Hephaestian netting, traps the Maenads.
Piper reunites with Leo as the timer reaches two minutes. He reassures his friends and Buford that the Argo II would not be exploding.
Jason and Piper promised Leo that they didn't tell anyone about the quest as Chiron and Argus come to collect the Maenads, informing the three that they had infiltrated Camp Half-Blood a previous time.
The two then ship the Maenads off to Atlantic City. Jason, Leo, and Piper then celebrate Christmas Eve with the campers where they propose a toast to their friendship.
Son of Magic The story opens with Dr. Claymore giving a speech in front of an audience. Claymore is surprised but he answers the question smartly. Claymore then ends his speech by announcing his new book. Afterwards, Ms. Lamia , the host of his talk, congratulates Dr. Later the boy who asked the question gives him his address, hoping to get an answer to his question. That night, Dr. Claymore gets a mysterious call from the host asking for something the boy gave him.
Claymore refuses and hangs up. When Claymore goes to sleep he has a dream vision of the boy talking to his mother and the boy tells his mother that his sister is trying to kill him and he asks for help. His mother refuses to come between the children.
Claymore tries to wake up from his dream but fails, the boy notices Claymore and is surprised. His mother tells him that she brought Claymore there. Claymore demands to wake up so the mother allows Claymore to wake up.
Later the host from the last night's talk shows up and threatens Claymore. Lamia uses the mist to confuse Claymore. Claymore uses his gun on Lamia and he saw that Burly didn't notice the gunfire which he found odd.
Lamia proceeds to attack him but Claymore keeps slowing her down by using his gun. Claymore finds out that Lamia is the daughter of Hecate and she is immortal. Claymore takes Burly's truck keys. Lamia burns down the coffee shop with Burly inside by using her spells.
Claymore escapes and goes to the boy's address.
