Overview

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. Original art, enlightening character interviews and profiles, puzzles, and a quiz add to the fun in this action-packed collection.

Editorial Reviews

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.

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 really liked this book. It has a bunch of short stories. My favorite is Son of Magic. I think that one is in this one?
