5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 25 Dec. 2012
Format:Hardcover
I am a huge fan of the Percy Jackson books and try to get my hands on anything that comes out that is related to it. So when I heard about this I knew I had to read it. This book contains 3 short stories, Luke and Thalia making their way to Camp Half Blood for the first time, Percy & Annabeth recovering a stolen item from a fire-brathing giant and then Leo, Piper and Jason trying to stop an explosion from destroying the camp.
Fans of the series will love this, it offers a deeper insight into the world and another side to some of the characters.
The stories are each about 20-30 pages and really get you hooked. This book also contains little quiz pages which include identifying the Gods by Greek and Roman names, anagrams, wordsearches and more. (I got this as a library book so couldn't write in it, and I don't like writing in books anyway but i did photocopy the wordsearches etc so I could do it)
This book also has one more thing in it - a short story written by Haley Riordan- Rick's son. This story isn't related to the main characters but you can see where it fits in and draws in some of the other storylines. For someone his age he has a great talent for writing and takes after his dad. The story really captured my imagination and it fit so well with the whole world of Percy Jackson.

This is a real delight for all fans and well worth getting a copy. I will be buying a copy I can keep. Just magical.

Review: I really like the Percy Jackson books and this was an interesting little addition. The stories were a bit longer and more involved than I had anticipated from an "extras" book like this and the story by Haley Riordan was really very good. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for any Haley Riordan books in the future and based on this effort I would be quite happy for him to take over the Olympus series if his Dad ever gets bored of it.
All in all this was a nice place holder for fans of the series waiting for the next book.

Favourite character: Percy Jackson

Favourite quote: "I gave her a smile that I hoped conveyed something like: Hey, you know I'm on your side. Gods are such jerks! But what can you do? Probably my expression actually conveyed: It's not my fault! Please do not kill me!"

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING BOOK! 19 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was an amazing extra to the Percy Jackson series. The stories are quite short and simple, yet with Rick Riordan' s mastermind, you couldn't wish for anything more. I am very impressed with Haley Riordan' s story at the end. I will definitively look out for books by him in the future!

5.0 out of 5 stars Demigod Diaries 28 May 2013
Format:Hardcover
This book is a BRILLIANT accompaniment to The Heroes of Olympus series or The Percy Jackson series..in fact it's perfect for any fan! As usual there are short stories in there, the one about Annabeth when she was on the run with Luke and Thalia is especially interesting and explains a lot, the one where Hermes appears seeking help I must admit in parts is HILARIOUS!! The final short story is by Riordan's son Hayley...it is darker than Rick's writing but works well as an explanation for the Titan War in the first Percy series. But in the introduction he mentions pictures of demigods you might meet while on a quest, there are none..I double checked the book back to front re-read the introduction to make sure it said that and it did but no pictures..that's the only thing I miss as it says it should be there. But all in all another FABULOUS book from Rick Riordan!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXQUISITE!!! 23 Aug. 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is another exquisite novel by the fabulous author Rick Riordan. Every single diary you read you can't have a single break from! It's as if your glued to it! Aswell as that it is an action packed story collection with stories about some untold dangers demigods faced in the past. My favourite story was called Leo Valdez and the quest for Buford. I was epically attached to it because of all the dangers and consequences the demigods' faced along the way. This diary is about the characters Leo Piper and Jason.Leo's work table with all his importantant tools in it has disappeared leaving the demigods with 1hour to find it or the Argo 2( Leo's ship) will explode!They face dangerous monsters along the way but still manage to find the table in time without getting killed!I would definitely recommend this book for age 9+.
