While on the subway after a failed internship interview, Annabeth Chase notices a monster with a wolf head and a lion head. As she does not have a weapon, she starts an argument between the two heads to keep it from hurting her or nearby mortals. Sadie Kane arrives, scares the beast off with some spells, and helps Annabeth recover from its poisonous aura. Annabeth and Sadie introduce themselves, and, deciding that another monster with only a dog head must be connected to the first beast, team up. The two attempt to explain their worlds as they track down a god Annabeth remembers having something to do with the conglomerate monster they have encountered. They meet the god, Serapis, who plots to destroy both the Greek and Egyptian pantheons. The two work together, experimenting by mixing together their particular brands of magic, and defeat both Serapis and his wolf/lion/dog monster. The two exchange phone numbers and go their separate ways.[1][3][4]
