The demigod files is a book full of short stories, interviews with the characters, puzzles and facts about Greek mythology. The short stories are good but nowhere near as good as the four books preceding. The stories are: Percy Jackson and the stolen chariot- about Percy and Clarisse finding Ares stolen chariot, Percy Jackson and the Bronze Dragon- about Percy, Annabeth, Chris Benkendorf and a daughter of Aphrodite, Silena, playing capture the flag but Benkendorf gets caught my monstrous bugs as he finds a bronze dragon head, the last story is Percy and the Sword of Hades- Hades makes a new weapon and Percy has to help. The interviews are a bit random and the puzzles are fun but there are only two of them. The info on the Greek Gods is good, if a little brief however. But the best bit of this book is the sneak peak into The Last Olympian, the fifth and final book of the series.

This is a good book to own for fans of the series and i would recommend it. I would probably give it 3 and a half stars.

This book is excellent value for money. It also contains "The Sword of Hades" - which is often advertised as a separate book. It has "interviews" with the Gods, quizzes and 2 other stories.

My 10 year old son has devoured this series - money well spent as he now also has a great knowledge of Greek Mythology!

This feels like a cash-in but it's well worth a read if you are a fan of the series. It's set between The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian and contains three short stories.

Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot: Percy teams up with usual foe Clarisse to regain Ares' chariot from Phobos and Deimos, the gods of fear and terror. It's a decent story and it's great to see Percy working with someone he wouldn't normally work with.

Percy Jackson and the Bronze Dragon: This takes place during a a game of capture the flag in Camp Half Blood. Beckendorf and Percy are on the same team and come across a metal dragon head and some giant ants. Cue adventure.

Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades: The best of the bunch, this one sees Percy, Nico and Thalia, the children of the Big Three, on a mission in the Underworld to retrieve Hades' sword from the mortal who stole it. It's as good as the full novels and sets up The Last Olympian brilliantly.

The book also has a load of other features, most of which are of little interest. A few lame puzzles and average illustrations but the interviews with various campers are worth a read, even if they are a little short.

A must-read for fans of the series!

For fans of Percy Jackson and anyone who has the slightest interest in Greek and Roman Civilisations or mythological masterpieces of fiction.
Truly an Epic set of stories from the First to the Last!!!
From Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson Books 1-5 plus two more extra books on the Greek Gods and Demigods) and continuing all the way through (Heroes of Olympus Books 1-5).
To end with The Blood of Olympus. An Epic story all the way through, a great coming of age story in beautiful and rich environments full of danger and mystery. A thoroughly cracking read. I loved it so much, I read it twice through. Wonderful.

Percy Jackson is the best book ever you have to read this to understand the hero's of Olympus . Rick Riordan is the an amazing author . Really excited for the trials of Apollo and Magnus Chase . Just started to read the sword of summer and its awesome. I'm 10 -11 and really liked it ill would totally recommend it to age 9-13

This book is set right before the THIRD Percy Jackson book.

This book is also NOT made for the Kindle and you loose out on a few of the end features, for example there is a timeline that didn't work properly on my Kindle and there is also two puzzles that while you could complete in your head, it's just not the same as a pen and paper.

However, in saying that the short stories included are really fun and a lovely bit of background (especially how the most tragic couple in the series got together *still not over that*) and there are a few short interviews which are good for a giggle.

Since I'm generally quite obsessed with Percy, I really enjoyed this book.

This book was given a good book review and my daughter requested by school to read it. I brought it off amazon and a good price and quality on an off chance that it was a good book. Wasn't wrong there! Buy it and see for yourself

It gives you so much extra information on everything that goes on at camp half-blood and you really get to know everything about the gods and the Demi-gods and all the monsters as well. It's a great book.
