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.
