Hey guys, this is the first chapter of The Fallen Angel. I think that you will enjoy another story where Percy is one of the main characters. In this story, Percy, Thalia, and Hazel have to save Nico from some kind of power that has taken him over. This is a sequel of The Divine Crisis And is the sister story of the Cursed Mummy. I hope you have had a great Christmas Eve, I missed this so much and I'm sure some of you have too. Great to be back. Enjoy.

Percy's POV

It was eight o'clock in the morning when I got up from a good night's sleep.

Hazel had slept in the Hades Cabin rather than going back to Camp Jupiter and we had just received word that Thalia had arrived toward camp.

Today was the day we will go to the Underworld to find Hades, who was one of my biggest haters, and try to find Nico di Angelo, who had been corrupted by a strange power that may or may not have given him the power to unleash chaos across the world.

Oh joy.

Well, I guess it is time to greet Thalia.

I saw Thalia at the entrance of camp, dressed in her usual punk clothing of combat boots and a black leather jacket.

Although she is technically older than me, being in her late twenties, she is a Hunter of Artemis, so she doesn't age, so she is physically a sixteen year old girl.

I had known Thalia for a long time, almost ten years, and she is one of the most powerful demigods I have seen, being the daughter of Zeus, so she will be a real help.

"Hey Percy," she said as she extended her hand.

I took her hand and shook it.

"Nice to see you too, Thalia," I told her. "Long time no see."

Her face turned deadly serious.

"Let's find Hazel and get rolling," she said. "We have to find Nico."

That's the Thalia I know, diving head first into danger for a thrill.

Thalia, Nico, and I once went on a mission a while back in the Underworld like this mission to retrieve the Sword of Hades, the same thing that brought Tiberius back from the dead.

We found Hazel in the dueling pit, practicing her sword skills.

Hazel was an nineteen year old girl with olive skin and curly hair.

She is a child of Pluto, the Roman equivalent of Hades, and is Nico's brother. She was actually born in the nineteen thirties, but she died and was brought back by Nico about seventy years later when he was searching for his other sister, Bianca.

"You ready?" Thalia asked her.

Only now noticing us, Hazel greeted us and responded.

"Yeah," she said, a look of seriousness in her face.

The look on her face definitely is attributed to the fact that Nico was her older brother, well, half-brother, but with the way they love each other, it's hard to tell.

"Listen guys, Nico is the only demigod living that can fully stack up to me, and if the power that corrupted him made him stronger, we need to have each other's backs," I told them.

Both girls nodded.

"How will we be traveling?" Thalia asked.

"The others can walk to Brooklyn because it is close, meanwhile we are traveling on Festus," I told her.

"Sweet, never ridden on a living bronze weapon before, should be fun," she said humorously.

We all went around and said our goodbyes. I gave Annebeth a more heartfelt goodbye.

It is time to go.


Thalia's POV

It had been a couple hours since we left Camp Half-Blood, and I was loving the ride.

I thought that riding on Festus would be bumpy and uncomfortable, seeing as we would be flying on top speed on a hunk of metal, but it was more thrilling than I thought.

I should do this more often.

I turned to Percy.

"How long will it be until we get there?" I asked him.

"Give or take a few hours," he responded.

Meh, I can deal with that.

I looked back toward Hazel, who was straddled near the back of Festus.

I don't know Hazel very well, but from what Percy told us, Hazel was quite high spirited. Now, her face was deadly serious.

I remember something that Percy told me, about another quest where they had to save Nico. Hazel was worried sick for Nico.

I also don't know Nico as well as Percy, but one thing I do know is that he has unstoppable willpower, which I hope will let him stay alive until we get there.


Hazel's POV

It was about noon and we decided to drop down in some forest next to a town to get some lunch in town.

We found a Burger King and grabbed a few burgers and sat down.

"What's our game plan?" Percy asked between bites of his burger.

"Well, we know that Hades hates you and he isn't very forgiving and might want to kill you," Thalia said casually to him.

"Thanks for the motivational speech," Percy said sarcastically, which caused me to crack a smile.

"Maybe if we tell him that we are hear to help, maybe he will let us," I stated, which turned Percy and Thalia's heads because I've been quite the whole time. "Besides, if this is as big as the prophecy is saying, he might know about the problem, and me being there will probably keep you from being killed."

They both nodded in agreement.

Then, I saw an old lady that looked like a school teacher behind us looking over as we were talking.

"Don't look now, but there is a lady behind us looking at us," I told them.

So naturally, Percy looked.

"I just said don't look!" I hissed toward him.

Then the lady started to walked toward us and stopped in front of our table.

"Hello Ms. Dodds," Percy said without looking up.

"Ms. Dodds?" Thalia asked.

"One of the Furies," Percy said. "The first monster I encountered.

"Hello, Percy Jackson," she said flatly. "I couldn't help but overheard what you were saying about the problem, and, in fact, Hades does know about it."

"Do you expect me to believe that we just happened to cross paths?" Percy asked. "You were following us."

"Hades thought that you might have somehow caused the problem," she told him.

"Figures," he muttered.

"Hey, Ms, Dodds," I said. "I don't know what my father thinks and I don't care, hurry on back to him and tell him that we are here to help."

She stood there, not knowing what to say and not wanting to say anything because I am the child of her master.

"Shoo," I said flatly.

Then she nodded and disappeared in a puff of smoke.

I looked at Percy and Thalia.

"Let's get back on the road."


So, I hoped you liked this first chapter of The Fallen Angel. It feels great to be back and I hope you enjoyed having Percy as one of the main characters again. Thanks for the support. Peace.
