The Dragon's egg
An egg-shaped object of the size of a football, covered with symbols from 2 different periods of greek history. It also depicts a long scaly creature with snakelike body and the head of a dragon, wolflike fangs and prominent eye sockets.
The egg was unearthed in Sparta
The inscription on the egg reads:
This is the egg of the dragon
The dragon must never be hatched
There are two more words hidden in the inscription:
When a human recites the incantation he invites the demon and offers to be his host. After that the host must stay near the egg halves.
The demon essence has the ability to possess a human, copy the host and double himself whenever killed. After that the duplications can not be killed the same way anymore.
The demon plans to build an army and bring chaos and mayhem.
Because the demon is using the host's essence to power the body duplicates the host himself can not move a muscle except his eyes.
The demon’s strength is spread over all his copies which means the less copies the more strength is in the single copy or original demon.
When the human dies all copies vanish and the original becomes incorporeal. The demon demateralises immediately and has no other choice but to go back into the egg. Without the incantation on the egg’s surface the demon can not exist in this world.
When the demon tried to retreat into the egg, Piper blew him up
Inscription on the egg:
Eklutos prolego anoixis oioskuphion
To stop a demon in his tracks
to calm a demon:
mugwort, moonwort, madwort
draw a pentagram
set the top to the north
plant one of the herbs at each of the five outer points
in each place where the lines that form the pentagram cross plant another herb
draw a circle around the pentagram
plant any herb that is left in this circle
within the circle but not within the pentagram itself
leaves from the plants at the five points of the pentagram will be the most powerful
prepare the ground before sundown
plant at moon at night
offer a blessing to the four horizons
next morning wait for the dew to dry , then pick your leaves soon after,
before the heat of the sun begins to affect them
make the potion of 20 young fresh leaves from each herb
to send a demon
to the underworld:
Demon from an ancient realm
go back from whence you came
you are not dead, but in death’s stead
you’re banished, just the same
blessing for compost:
from earth you spring, and grew, and
till plucked from farmer’s field
we brought you home, you fed us well
but you have more to yield
the minerals you sucked from stone,
the sun you drank from sky
are stored within your roots and leaves
to grow now, by and by
so rest here, till you decompose
and then start life anew
as flow’r or tree, or herb or such
a-sparkling with the dew
the miracle of life
is that it circles, round and round
you are not merely because
you’re turned up in the ground
so rise again, fair stuff of life
become the grass, or wood
you aid us best that grow’th best,
now once more, do some good
blessing for plants:
herbs within this garden patch
drink deep of nature’s food
rise up, grow strong, before too long
we both shall do some good
to reduce a man’s pride:
when the flame of pride consumes a man
but he’ll not take your offer
blow him kisses, soft and sweet
before you make your proffer.
Then whisper these words on the air
That blows in his direction
“drink the drink I give to you”
he’ll bow to your suggestion
to ask for help:
When Paige starts her
new job at the museum as a tour guide through the Greek antiquities display, she
is fascinated by the ancient treasures almost as much as she is by her fellow
tour guide, the gorgeous, Chase. One day, a strange stone egg is added to the
collection. It gives Paige the creeps and she's sure there's something evil
about it. Her fears are confirmed when Chase accidentally opens the egg and
releases a demon.
The demon promptly assumes Chase's form and when Paige tries to kill it, the demon Chase splits in half, forming two new wholes. With the real Chase unable to explain what happened, and doubling demons on the loose, the Charmed Ones will have to count on the Power of Three to figure out what's going on.

|Summary:||5 out of 12|
read and tension is kept well but it's a bit too long especially when it
comes to the theoretical parts. That the book obviously is set after 5x22
but Leo is not an Elder and Chris is not around is irritating.
Leo gets a bit more attention in his whitelighter job than in other books.
