Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Audio
Young listeners will be delighted with this audio edition of four short stories that supplement the books in Riordan’s Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, in which young characters are demigods—half-human offspring of the gods of Greek and Roman mythology. In the first three tales, the narrators—Nick Chamian, Jesse Bernstein, and Joshua Swanson—give fine performances that capture the essence of the author’s fantastical world and feature solid vocal characterization. According to Riordan, who reads introductions to his stories, the last story was written by the author’s teenage son, Haley, and focuses on a demigod fighting on the wrong side of a terrible war. Aaron Groben, who deftly voices an older man, a young boy, and a nasty monster, narrates this story. Ages 10–up. A Hyperion hardcover. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Paula Rohrlick
Fans of Riordan's wildly popular series "Percy Jackson and the Olympians," which began with The Lightning Thief, will appreciate this collection of tales and activities. There are four new short stories about the misadventures of the teenage demigods: "The Diary of Luke Castellan," "Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes," "Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford," and "Son of Magic." This last tale was written by Riordan's teenage son Haley, who, as Riordan explains, inspired the character of Percy. As in the novels, fantasy, adventure and humor abound as mythology meets the modern era. Other features of this volume include full-color character portraits, interviews with Hermes's snakes, word games, a map of Halycon Green's house, a decode-the-secret-message game based on the names of Greek and Roman gods, and a diagram of Bunker 9. Riordan, a former middle school teacher, knows mythology and his target audience well, and Percy's many followers will be thrilled by this addition to the chronicles of the Camp Half-Blood heroes.

The Demigod Diaries 4.7 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 652 reviews.

This is the perfect example of a book you cannot put down. I read the whole book in less than 5 hours and i loved it! The diaries of luke castelleam was just what I wanted. I always wanted to know how luke and thalia met annabeth and i finally found it! Percy jackson and the staff of hermes was the perfect percy/annabeth story. I felt like rick riordan was trying to recreate the percy jackson adventures but fell slightly short, but i still loved it! Leo valdez and the quest for buford was amazing! I loved the fact that the group of demigods was the same and leo was so funny! All i was thinking when ifound put that piper and jason were an item is that reyna wouldnt like that! And last but not least, the son of magic! The writing debut of ricks son haley! It answered so many questions thatmany readers would have after reading the whole series. It also made me think differently about the demigods everyone knows and loves from the origional series. Dont get me wrong,i still love them, i just understand the demigods who fought for kronos more. Overall, i think this was the perfect book to keep anyone satisfied until the mark of athena on october 2nd. My overall comment is: watch out rick, haley's got an awesome future as an author ahead of him and he will likely surpass your amazing best selling records! Thanks to anyone who is reading this. I know it is long and i hope you found it helpful!

Are you a Percy Jackson fan? Do you like Greek Mythology? Do you like laugh-out-loud, on-the-edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding books? If you answered yes to any of these question, then The Demigod Diaries is the book your you! First ever book where they really get into Percabeth's relationship! And you get to read Luke's diary and find out how he really felt about Thalia! And of course, more laughs with Leo Valdez. AND THERE'S THE A PHOTO OF THALIA GRACE. What more can you ask for? Rick's son, Haley Riordan, has a short story in there explaining what happened to the demigods in Kronos's army after The Last Olympian and much more! Don't think twice, JUST BUY THE BOOK. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I loved this book! I wasn't sure about getting this at first because there were some bad comments. My advice is for you to NOT LISTEN TO THEM! It was such a good book.
