Book Description

Aug. 14 2012 Heroes of Olympus
What dangers do runaway demigods Luke and Thalia face on their way to Camp Half-Blood? Are Percy and Annabeth up to the task of rescuing stolen goods from a fire-breathing giant who doesn't take kindly to intruders? How exactly are Leo, Piper, and Jason supposed to find a runaway table, dodge a band of party-loving Maenads (who just might be a little psychotic), and stave off a massive explosion...all in one hour or less?

With his trademark wit and creativity, Rick Riordan answers these questions and more in three never-before-seen short stories that provide vital back-story to the Heroes of Olympus and Percy Jackson books, with a bonus fourth story marking the publishing debut of Haley Riordan, the inspiration for Percy Jackson. Original art, enlightening character interviews and portraits, puzzles, and a quiz add to the fun in this action-packed collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG Aug. 14 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!! I think I would've died if I had to wait one more second of waiting for The Demigod Diaries or The Mark of Athena to come out. It was absolutely amazing, I was impressed,it was even better than I expected. The story of Luke and Thalia was cute and I enjoyed hear enjoyed hearing Luke's point of view for a change. Absolutely adored Percy and Annabeth's date, totally missed their hilarious conversations. And the Quest for Buford was amazing too, I found it really funny, quick and witty. The last story written by Rick's son was well written but I have to say I liked the others better. Anyway This story definitely helped me contain myself until the Mark of Athena comes out in October.

My Grandson loved this book but after one reading the pages started to fall out. His brother is going to have a difficult time keeping the pages together when he starts reading the book.

The short stories in this book are awesome, all three of them fit in the main story of the other books and they add a little more comedy than the other books do. I didn't care much for the puzzles and pictures but overall a fine addition to the Heroes of Olympus series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than I expected! Aug. 14 2012
By McAfilles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Next to The Mark Of Athena, this was my most awaited book of the year. The instant my friends and I got hold of the ebook, the four of us crowded around one kindle to read~ and squeal~ over the it. I had high expectations for this book, and, well, it completely exceeded them!
To start off, we get an awesome story taken from Luke Castellan's own diary, from the days when he and Thalia were on the run. It's action packed and FULL of witty humour. Luke has a very different voice than Percy's, and I think that after having read this, many people will like him more. And is Thalia/Luke really a thing...? Riordan answers all of our questions in it, so read the book to find out!
Then, we have "Percy Jackson And The Staff Of Hermes", from the days when Percy and Annabeth had just started dating. It's their one month anniversary, and Percy just might have forgotten... Do any of you miss the cute and dumb Percy from the earlier series? Well, he's back and better than ever! I love Percy and Annabeth's banter, and this funny and sweet story~ full with a date, a monster, a god and two particularily amusing snakes~ just makes me anticipate The Mark Of Athena even more than my mental health can manage.
Thirdly, there is a story involving Leo, Jason and Piper. Leo's really busy building the Argo II, but no thanks to a walking table who likes to be polished only in a certain way, he runs into very big trouble threatening to blow up Bunker Nine. There are crazy stalkerish psycho nymphs who worship Mr. D, Jason and Piper are officially a couple, and Leo is hilarious.
Some activities and an interview involving the aforementioned snakes are scattered around the book. Then in the end, Rick Riordan's son wrote a small story, also in the theme of demigods. I didn't like that story as much as the rest, but that was probably because it had completely new characters in it.
All in all, I really liked this book. My friends and I "awwwww"~ed a lot, especially during the first two stories. So if you can't wait for The Mark Of Athena to come out, or want your faith in The Heroes Of Olympus restored, read this book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Three parts enjoyable. Aug. 18 2012
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is basically divided into two parts: what Rick Riordan wrote and what his son Haley wrote.

Everything Rick wrote was, as usual, charming and funny and exciting and cute. He's one of my favorite writers because he knows how to balance the light and the dark, and it never gets too dark, even in life or death situations. His books are perfect "escape" books. They're fluffy, and I love that. I know I'm going to enjoy myself no matter which world or character he's writing.

I would have given this book four stars, but the very last story, "Son of Magic", knocked one off. Haley is a great writer for 16, and his stuff is years ahead what I was writing when I was 16, but the story just didn't fit. The main protagonist wasn't a demigod, and wasn't very likeable even at the end of the story. He uses a gun to try and kill a monster, and for some reason the appearance of guns, working guns that shoot bullets, in this world was disconcerting to me. It's almost too "real", and it knocks the tone down from exciting to a bit dark. Especially when the main protagonist kicks a monster's jaw so hard it flies off her face (as dust, but still). I also didn't like how Hecate was portrayed as a white-robed Virgin Mary wannabe praying at a church altar. What's that supposed to tell us? It's left unanswered but I definitely don't like the idea of these mythical Greek gods worshiping the Christian god. That sends a bad message.

Haley did not write badly. He knew how to pace and describe things, and it didn't feel clunky and choppy. It just didn't fit the tone of the world his father has established. He might be trying to inject some maturity into it, but I don't want that at all. I'll stick with Rick.

4.0 out of 5 stars "A Delightful Suppliment to Riordan's Series of Percy and Jason" Aug. 25 2012
By Carl E. Ahlm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Riordan's "The Demigod Diaries" is like an "interlude book" between or supplementing larger, more significant works. Evanovich does it with her popular Stephanie Plum series. For us, it is much like JK Rowling's "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" or "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them"; these are several of Rowling's books to supplement the Potter series. Riordan's "The Demigod Diaries" is a short, quick read. Although it consists of four short stories plus original art, character interviews, and some games and puzzles, it is still well written and brings enjoyment and interesting information about our Greek and Roman campers. If you have enjoyed Riordan's books so far, then I strongly recommend this delightful book!

These short stories provide interesting and/ or vital information to the "Heroes of Olympus" and the Percy Jackson stories. The first story was Luke's story, "The Diary of Luke Castellan," which was my favorite. Luke, certainly one of the more interesting and complex characters from Camp Half-Blood, is featured here; the story is told from his point of view which provides and interesting change. We are now given an interesting glimpse into Luke's character before he betrayed the camp and the gods (which is prophesied in this story). Additionally, it was interesting to see Luke and Thalia fighting together, and then later finding a young, lost Annabeth and making her a part of the group. The second story is "Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes," in which Percy and Annabeth are celebrating their one month anniversary of dating. Of course, this anniversary is more important to one than the other, and does Percy feel on the spot. This uneasiness is interrupted by Hermes who just happens to need help as the Caduceus (his staff) has been stolen. It is a little weaker, but still an interesting story. Third, "Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford," provides the reader with a great look at the inventiveness of Leo, who made a delightful appearance in "The Lost Hero." It is a delightful story filled with surprising events, including a magic table named Buford, and eggnog drunk nymphs. The last story was "The Son of Magic" written by Riordan's son, Haley. I was a bit surprised that the tone of the story was certainly a darker tone than the other stories; perhaps I just expected something lighter, with a bit more humor for a young writer's first major attempt. However, that was from my expectation; young Haley's story still made an impact and made you think! See what you think!
