    Summary

    “It’s called the Rite of Passage. How it goes is, you pick out a guy. You get him to fall in love with you, and then . . .” Nayra paused dramatically, reflected candlelight shining in her eyes. “You break his heart.”

    When Silena was dating Charles Beckendorf, she spoke against the Aphrodite Cabin's Rite of Passage. Her sisters and brothers thought she'd never taken part in it, and some of them believed that she died for her disrespect for Aphrodite. But none of them knew about Silena and Clarisse, or the true story of how Silena came to betray the camp.

    Summary

    Gregor had obviously mistaken Mark for someone else. (Mark hated being mistaken for someone else.) A regular human being, who knew how to do the friend thing. He felt sick and helpless, like when he’d walked into Kareen’s dorm room to find her in tears because she’d just gotten a vid from her family and she missed them so much. “Sire,” Mark started, but no, that wasn’t right, Mark could figure out that much. “Gregor. Do you, uh, want to tell me what’s wrong?”

    After his wedding, Gregor has an unexpected problem, and calls Mark for help.

    Summary

    He had always thought he would end up married to his work. He had studied hard, worked diligently, brought himself to the attention of the right people--and ended up with an appointment to the Chrestomanci’s personal staff, as high as one could rise in Flavian’s chosen profession if one hadn’t happened to be born with nine lives. And when he got there he’d found Mordecai waiting for him. Mordecai, who threw all his previous ideas into confusion.

    Summary

    I’d made promises, and I owed a lot of people more than I could ever repay, and the least I could do was make a lousy phone call. It wouldn’t kill me. Probably.

    Summary

    Annabeth burst out of her seat and started pacing across the room, her hand twitching near her knife where it was strapped to her thigh. “Seriously? Seriously? Gaea is waking up, the giants are being reborn, Percy’s been kidnapped by the Romans, and that doggerel-spouting prettyboy is sending us on a quest because one of his campers lost his fucking teddy bear?”

    Annabeth just wants to find Percy. Leo just wants to work on his ship. Rachel just wants to play Galaxy Angel Eternal Lovers. Unfortunately Apollo has other ideas. Set around the same time as the events of The Son of Neptune.

    Summary

    Calypso has seen Sally Jackson’s window-box garden blooming at night against the brilliant skyline of Manhattan; she’s sung songs at the campfire at Camp Half-Blood and drunk chocolate in the coffeehouses of New Rome; she’s camped with the Hunters of Artemis beneath arctic skies, watching her sister Zoe stalk the Great Bear among the Northern Lights. But she doesn’t feel the need to do any of it more than once.

    Summary

    Now, on this occasion, as Kaa was sunning himself, a young monkey dropped out of a tree above him. As thou knowest, the bandar-log have no law, but do each one what pleases him--but if they had a law, it would be this: Thou shalt not leave well enough alone what thou mayest poke with a stick.

    Summary

    It’s the mark of a good storyteller that every listener thinks that she’s speaking directly to them. Piper is a good storyteller. But it’s more than that. Until now, she’s been looking into the fire, but now she raises her eyes and meets Nico’s without hesitation, even though in the dark, standing in deep shadow, he should be the next thing to invisible. He tries to look away--it’s not even a choice, it’s an instinct--and finds he can’t. There might be nothing else in all the world except for Piper, the fire and himself.

    Piper tells the story of the flood. The moral may not be what Nico thinks.

    Summary

    Just one of Leo’s stupid jokes, and if Jason had just laughed it off--

    Summary

    "And how did you come by an Amazon Supremacy account, Mister Valdez?” He had no idea what Kinzie looked like, but he could almost see the curl in her lip when she said you. He definitely heard the pause before Mister, like she was swapping it out for a much nastier word. She had a great voice.

    Amazon Customer Service calls Leo with a few questions about his recent purchases. He gets more than he bargained for.

    “You know, it’s a well-known scientific fact that alcohol kills brain cells," said Mary. "I’m pretty sure this isn’t going to work.”

    Summary

    She didn’t dare do this when Uncle Geoffrey was home--never mind that it was Ari’s room and Ari’s azi--because Uncle Geoffrey had always looked at Ari like another one of Olga Emory’s prize pigs, no different except this one owned the largest share of Reseune outright, or would when she was older.

    Only lately it had been different.
