You get some back story for Luke Castellan. And some of these story are reference in Hero's of Olympus. I really liked Haley's Riordan short story Son of Magic. And full color illustration of some of the Hero's of Olympus. Sorry 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.
Illustration s missing from Kindle Version?? FolkertsWe pre-ordered the Kindle version to be delivered to my i-pad. The stories were a lot of fun read aloud to enjoy with a family of 5, ranging in age from 12 to 72! We are enjoying the entire "Heroes of Olympus" series, and were delighted to find these short stories to enjoy over the summer while waiting for the next book in the series to be released in October. I enjoyed reading the diary entries of Luke, Percy and Leo.
What I loved most was reading about how the Author began writing the Percy Jackson series - he was inspired by his son who was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia as are the demigods and that Percy Jackson sprang to life in bedtime stories he told his son.
I also liked that his son also had a story at the end of the book. This is a good book to read for any fans o This was a fun addition to the Percy Jackson and Hero's of Olympus series.
This is a good book to read for any fans of the Percy Jackson series. Ik wil naar Kamp Halfbloed Lees hier mijn recensie over deze verhalen over alle Halfgoden! Volver a estar bajo la piel de Percy, Annabeth o Thalia me ha gustado muco. Con una serie de extras, nos vamos a encontrar pasatiempos, crucigramas, mensajes secretos, incluso una entrevista la mar de graciosa de las dos serpientes de Hermes.
No obstante, ha sabido mantener la esencia. Loved it!
I loved that we got to see Annabeth and Percy's romance before he disappears. I also loved that we got to see another side of the deceased Son of Hermes, Luke when he was younger and how he along with Thalia acted as surrogate parents to a then 7 year-old Annabeth.
Another great aspect of this book is the interview with George and Martha, the snakes that reside on Hermes' staff. This book also contains the debut short story, Son of Magic by Rick's son Harley, the inspiration for the Perc Loved it! This book also contains the debut short story, Son of Magic by Rick's son Harley, the inspiration for the Percy Jackson series who was only 16 when he wrote the story.
Like always, Rick combines fun and mythology and rolls out a book that can brighten your day if you're having a rotten one. Oct 04, Melanie rated it really liked it Shelves: Laughed so much when Percy forgot about the one month anniversary with Annabeth And Burford the table!?!?! Hahaha sooo randoms and amusing. I have no words to describe how much I love Rick Riordan's writings as they are just beyond my expectations: And Haley, you are going to be just as successful as your father one day because that short story captivated me from start to end!!!
May 10, Grace the Book Queen rated it it was amazing Shelves: All the stories in this book were really good, and hilarious of course! Plus we get some Percabeth!!! And I especially liked that we got a look into Luke's head.
I think my favorite story would have to Haley Riordan's story, that story was terrific!! Dec 27, Amelia Oswald rated it really liked it Shelves: This is better than 9 of the nine worlds I don't even remember the title of that short story though. I guess it's because I like this series better than Magnus Chase or because my love for Rick's books is being worn off.
Mar 27, Sesana rated it liked it Shelves: Obviously, only for hardcore fans of Riordan's Greek and Roman demigods. I liked it more than the similar The Demigod Files , though there's nothing here that made me quite as happy as Bob the Titan had. There are four stories here, each told from a different perspective. First, one of Luke and Thalia's adventures from their days on the run, before they met Annabeth.
Luke's voice is distinct enough from Percy's, in no small part because of how bitter he already was. Next, Percy and Annabeth attempt to have a date, which obviously cannot be allowed to stand. This one is set shortly after The Last Olympian.
The third story is a Leo, Piper, and Jason adventure, with Leo as the lead character. You'll need to have read The Lost Hero for that one. All three are fun adventures, that fit into the overall world Riordan created without being something that you'd need to seek out. The last story in the book was actually written by Riordan's sixteen year old son, Haley. And honestly, I was impressed. His focus is one of the demigods who sided with Kronos, and it answers questions about what happened to them, the Mist, and the nature of monsters.
Cool stuff, for a fan. And Haley is a good enough writer to make it a fun read, too. So, for a Percy Jackson fan, is it worth it? But if you're a Percy Jackson fan, you already knew that. This was a nice addition to the Heroes of Olympus series, though not a completely necessary one in Uncle Rick's case I'll explain what I mean. The book includes a few short stories centered around Luke, Percy and Leo. In Luke's story we take a peek in his life before he came to Camp Half-Blood and his relationship with Thalia and how they came to meet Annabeth.
It was a nice addition in the sense that we get to see what Luke has been through and the fact that he didn't 'become a bad person' out This was a nice addition to the Heroes of Olympus series, though not a completely necessary one in Uncle Rick's case I'll explain what I mean. It was a nice addition in the sense that we get to see what Luke has been through and the fact that he didn't 'become a bad person' out of the blackness of his heart. Percy's and Leo's stories, I believe were just added in case you missed those favourite characters and would have kisy liked a little story in their point of view.
Nothing terribly exciting happens, just a normal day in a demigod's life. However, what I enjoyed the most was the last story, The Son of Magic , which is written by Rick's son. I loved his foreword on how Percy came to be and the fact that his son is basically responsible for your favourite demigod and I felt very proud after reading the story, because it is really good and it definitely adds to the whole demigod world.
It gives you certain answers, and very good answers, to some questions about the demigods and Rick himself tells you that he wishes he came up with this facts in the first place. The Son of Magic is definitely the highlight of this bundle. If you feel like you miss the gang, then you can pick this up, but all the more pick it for Haley's story. Yleisestikin tosi kiva kirja, ei niin hutaistu ja random kuin Demigod Files.
Jun 26, Alexander Draganov rated it it was amazing. The stories are awesome, especially the one about Luke. Riordan never fails to deliver a masterpiece and that's why he is my favorite author. View 2 comments. Nov 24, Evan Quade rated it it was amazing. More companion short stories in the Camp Half-Blood universe. Loved them! If there was one short story I was looking forward to the most in this book, it was the last one called Son of Magic.
But this story was actually written by Rick Riordan's son, Haley Riordan. And may I just say this right now: I know the whole background story of Rick's son and how it was him who inspired Percy Jackson in the first place.
From having trouble reading as a little kid to now reading books More companion short stories in the Camp Half-Blood universe. From having trouble reading as a little kid to now reading books and now writing this short story, I am so proud of this kid. What Haley wrote, not only is it about a son of Hecate, but what he created reveals some deep secrets of why there is a Mist that sets that barrier between half-bloods and humans and how monsters track people so easily with the use of technology.
Something we've been dying to know.
Like father, like son Rick and Haley have come full circle in writing. I hope that one day, Haley Riordan will be the next bestselling author. Let's get this part out of the way: Rick's three short stories were fantastic too.
As usual, rapidly thrilling and humorous.
My favorite of the three was The Diary of Luke Castellan. It's obvious, it's Luke's diary. Without spoilers given, reading Luke's story from a long time ago before Percy Jackson had completely changed my view of Luke entirely than I first thought of him in Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.
It was the system in the way of good guys gone bad. Yet, you have to end up expressing sympathy for this kid knowing what he used to be. Aug 31, Shawne rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Percy Jackson fans. I'm on a bit of a Rick Riordan kick right now, evidently - and I was so glad to have this recently-released short-story collection set in the Percy Jackson universe to read after ripping through The Serpent's Shadow.
It's been a while since I've read The Demigod Files , but from what I recall, I do feel that this anthology boasts a quartet of stronger, more memorable stories that very competently do their job in whetting our appetites for the forthcoming Mark Of Athena.
Three of the four stories I'm on a bit of a Rick Riordan kick right now, evidently - and I was so glad to have this recently-released short-story collection set in the Percy Jackson universe to read after ripping through The Serpent's Shadow.
Three of the four stories in this volume are written by Riordan, and whether or not intentionally, they very nicely cover both a lot of history and emotional ground in his Olympian universe. The Diary Of Luke Castellan harks back to adventures that took place even before the first Percy Jackson series, and shades in some very welcome complexity and heartbreak for Luke, one of the unfortunate antagonists in the battle between the Gods and the Titans.
His relationship with Thalia and Annabeth takes shape before our eyes, and it's a treat as well to witness his meeting with the miserably accursed Halcyon Green and watch how this both reinforces and underpins Luke's motives in the story he has yet to live. With Halcyon and even Luke , Riordan somehow manages to again pull off that magic trick he performs so well of giving even minor characters surprising amounts of emotional depth and resonance, despite the fact that they spend most of their limited appearances as snarky, post-modern approximations of their mythological counterparts.
In the former tale, he allows us a peek at Percy and Annabeth's fledgling relationship before Percy is spirited away and dosed with amnesia. It's as sparky, banter-filled and irreverent as anything Riordan has previously cooked up for his protagonists, and reminds us even as we tag along on Percy and Annabeth's quest to track a thief into the sewers of Manhattan how much we've missed seeing these two together in the main series of books.
Leo's adventure similarly gives us a breather from the doom and gloom that will likely be the lot of these characters in time to come; instead, we get to spend a little time with Leo, Piper and Jason as they try their best to set matters right when a couple of very important metal doo-wat-sits disappear from Bunker 9.
Perhaps of greatest interest to anyone picking up a copy of Diaries would be the fact that Riordan's eldest son, Haley, has contributed a yarn of his own - Son Of Magic - to the fictional world his dad created for him as a bedtime story. How does young Haley acquit himself as a storyteller? On the strength of this particular tale, I'd say rather well.
His prose is a little more stilted than his dad's, and apart from a couple of throwaway moments, lacks the silly humour the elder Riordan so effortlessly weaves into action sequences. But Haley's story deepens and grows as it goes along, so that we - alongside the arrogant Professor Claymore and the wonderfully-named Alabaster Torrington - eventually get swept up in his narrative.
It's a worthy entry in Percy's world, and one that answers quite a lot of questions about how magic operates in the universe All in all, Diaries does exactly what it sets out to do: Is it October 2nd yet?!
Jul 03, Cathy rated it really liked it Shelves: These extra little books that Riordan puts out about his two mythology series are never terribly substantial, but they're not really meant to be. From what I remember of the others, this was most satisfying to me as an adult reader because it had 4 quite solid stories and less of the games, pictures, and extras that might appeal to juvenile readers, but probably aren't of much interest even to young adult readers, much less adults.
It's hard to balance these things because the books are popular These extra little books that Riordan puts out about his two mythology series are never terribly substantial, but they're not really meant to be. It's hard to balance these things because the books are popular with so many audiences, but I know as an adult reader that the books really aren't aimed at me so I try not to judge too harshly. The first story was about Luke's history with Thalia.
It portrayed him as a brave and lonely young boy and was quite poignant. It also showed one of the experiences that he had that put him on his dangerous path, as he learned that that the gods could be very cruel to the demigods and that the kids had to defend themselves because, as usual, their godly parent sure as Olympus weren't going to intervene.
If the gods ever treat me that badly, I will fight back. It was mostly just a cute bridge for fans between the first and second series. I'm not sure I got anything new out of it, but it was a cute story. Pretty much the same is true of the third story. I think Riordan is walking the line of trying to write satisfying stories for fans but making sure that people who don't read this book don't miss out on anything substantial, so the stories are fun but don't add anything big to the plot of the series.
This one is about Piper, Leo and Jason at the camp. I liked the use of mythology. It did move the story along a bit, talking about Leo building the Argo II, but mostly it just helped me get even more excited to read the next book.
As for the story, it was very cool that it was written by Haley Riordan, especially given his role as the inspiration for all of the Percy stories. And when you consider his personal journey to overcome dyslexia and ADHD, and the fact that he's only 16 himself, it's pretty remarkable. It was a surprisingly mature story for a 16 year-old, I'd never have guess that a kid wrote it. It definitely felt a bit like fan-fiction to me just because it was clearly a different style than the rest of the book; he got the sense of adventure and danger pretty well, but it lacked the humor and lightness of the senior Riordan's writing.
Which is fine, I don't think he was trying to copy his dad, it just did stand out as different. And it was kind of an odd choice for this series to make the main character an adult, and an older adult, that was just kind of weird to me.
If I didn't really connect to the guy and I'm in my 40s, then how did the kids who are the target audience of the book feel about him? I did really like the choice of using a kid from the Kronos side of the war, that was interesting. And the Lamia was a really scary monster. Overall it was a good story. It really should be a 3. The Heroes of Olympus review: The Demigod Diaries 2.
Please note, as this book is 2. Otherwise there will be spoilers. Welcome to: This bonus book contains the following short stories: The Diary of Luke Castellan: It was great to The Heroes of Olympus review: It was great to get a bit more insight into what drove Luke to make the choices he made, through out the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. However, I did feel like this was a little late in the game to bring this out, as Luke isn't part of the Heroes of the Olympus series.
Nonetheless, it's still a great read! Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes: A simple and great read about what happens when you forget date night with your girlfriend. Personally, I could have been without it, but that's probably just because I never warmed as much to Leo and Jason as I could have.
This story was the best! This is Rick's son offering up his answers to questions about the mist, among other things. The best part about it? It's a story about one of the demigods that sided with Kronos, and what happened to them afterwards.
Aug 14, Sarah Schanze rated it liked it Shelves: This book is basically divided into two parts: 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 is basically divided into two parts: 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.
Dec 24, Vorbis rated it liked it. So this happened to be on my library shelf, and it's the sort of thing you could read in a few hours. Except that I can't just read short stories in a sitting, their changing storylines annoy me and make me put it down and the whole thing take longer.
Anyway, that's a glitch with my system rather than the book. This is a lot of in between stories, where not a great deal happens but it's all light fluffy fun. Only without the sense of it all going anywhere.
