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.

I'm not done yet but... Percy Jackson and The Staff of Hermes had So. Much. Percabeth. It hurt!




And again.. Rick has managed to break my heart with Percabeth, this time only in a matter of 50 pages or so.


Rick, you troll.


As you can tell, this book gave me some major feels. I loved all the stories. I loved learning about old and new characters and hearing about their actions. My favorite story? Percy Jackson and The Staff of Hermes and Luke's Diary, no contest. Not that I didn't love Leo and Claymore's stories though. They were really great. And of course, I'm a Leo Valdez fangirl so there's that.

I must say, I am impressed by Rick's sons amazing writing. He's only 16 and he already writes like a pro. Obviously, Rick's awesome skills run in the family. Hopefully he just doesn't become a troll who tortures his fans with cliffhangers like his dad did though.

Anyway, I loved this book. It was a delightful, action packed, fun companion to the books and I'm so glad I read it.

The Demigod Diaries (The Heroes of Olympus), Rick Riordan

The Demigod Diaries is a collection of short stories relating to The Heroes of Olympus book series.

Stories: The Diary of Luke Castellan, Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes, Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford, and The Son of Magic.

The Diary of Luke Castellan: Set five years before the start of The Lightning Thief and narrated by Luke Castellan, this story follows the adventures of Luke and his companion, Thalia Grace, as they meet with Halcyon Green, a prophetic, desolate demigod son of Apollo, who briefly foretells their futures.

Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes: Set on September 18, a month after the end of The Last Olympian, before Percy Jackson and Jason Grace's switch by Hera and narrated by Percy, the story follows Percy and Annabeth Chase's unfortunate date as they are tasked by Hermes to retrieve his stolen caduceus.

Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford: Set between the events of The Lost Hero and The Son of Neptune and narrated by Leo Valdez, the story follows Leo, aided by his friends Jason Grace and Piper McLean, as he faces off in a vicious conflict with the maenads, the maniac followers of Dionysus.

The Son of Magic: This story was written by Rick Riordan's son Haley and represents his debut as a professional writer. It is set sometime after the events of The Last Olympian and told in the limited, subjective third-person. The plot follows the mortal Dr. Howard Claymore as he becomes involved in a conflict between two children of Hecate: the demigod Alabaster Torrington, and the vengeful, demigod-hating daemon, Lamia.

Nota: (3,7)
Estuvo bueno jajajajajsjd es cortito, por eso no le pongo más.
La historia de Luke y Thalia ME SORPRENDIÓ, fue lo mejor de todo. Encima pensar que Zoë Belladona le habia propuesto a Thalia unirse a las cazadoras y ella no aceptó porque estaba con Luke y al final de "La maldición del Titán", después de la tremenda lucha contra él, Thalia decide unirse porque no hay nada que la retenga?? PODEROSO.
El cuento de Leo, Piper y Jason estuvo bien. Tipo bien y ya. No hay mucho más que decir jajsjdjs me dio risa y eso pero no fue nada muy impactante.
el cuento del doctor que escribió el hijo de Rick es muy cheto. Tipo me re gustó, te enterás un poco más sobre la niebla y la magia. El final me encantó y la frase de "yo no soy un héroe" FUAAAA.

I got this for my birthday, which was awesome. I sat down on the couch and didn't talk to anybody for several hours.
It was great to see Luke and Thalia before they reached Camp Halfblood or any of the later craziness occured. I think I like Luke now more than I ever did.
The Percy & Annabeth Story: Oh, how I've missed them. Together. In the same book/shortstory/whatever. I like first person perspective better than third person in general, and I love Percy's narration. Plus George and Martha went Lazer Mode. I've been waiting for this since the Last Olympian.
It was also great to see Leo, Piper, and Jason (but especially Leo) again. We've only really known them for one book, and I spent the whole time reading it thinking, WHERE IS PERCY JACKSON! HE IS MISSING! FIND HIM!. Still, it was nice to see them again, and the Maenads were pretty cool. Utterly terrifying, yes, but cool.
Finally, I come to Son of Magic. It was a little darker than some of his dad's stories, which I'm totally cool with. I <3 the dark stuff. There were times when I started thinking, Percy Jackson, how dare you. Then I caught myself. Still, I loved Alabaster, and I hope he shows up in a Heroes of Olympus book, even for just a brief fight to the death.

I loved each of the stories in this companion novel!

The Diary of Luke Castellan was so enjoyable. I loved seeing the dynamic between Luke and Thalia. She hardly ever talks about Luke so seeing their relationship was special.

Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes was a classic Percy story. I felt this definitely could be read before Heroes of Olympus . There are some very vague mentions to Percy’s fate but nothing too spoilery.

Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford was good however, for me it was a little hard to set my mind back to the beginning of the series. I just loved the character development that each of those characters had and to read them as they were before going through all they had (is that the right tense?) took me out of the story a little.
I definitely recommend reading this before The Mark of Athena.

Son of Magic was different and exciting. I loved the more serious undertone. I didn’t expect it to change POVs but that helped in telling a more complete story.
This story has the most spoilers for Heroes of Olympus although this too could be read before the end of the series.

Overall, some great additions to this world. I would definitely read more entries in Luke’s diary or more of Haley Riordan’s stories!

You know I love anything by Rick Riordan! :D

The Diary of Luke Castellan:

Thank you, Rick, for writing this story!! It was interesting to know about the dangers Luke and Thalia faced before The Lightning Thief and before Annabeth. And now I know how Aegis came to be and how exactly Annabeth got that dagger! :P

Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes:

Nice great story about Percabeth! :P I noticed how he put a reference to what happened in the past books he wrote. I love the humor Rick always puts in his books.

"But fighting with her? That came naturally. Hmm...that sounded wrong. Oh well."

XD. That's all I have to say on that subject.

Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford:

Funny weird-ish story about Jason, Piper, and Leo has with Leo's table, Buford *snicker* and the Maenads.Or however you spell it.

Son of Magic:


This story was absolutely amazing! :D I love how he answered the questions about the Mist and how monsters are able to track demigods. And it was nice to actually hear a story about one of the demigods that fought for Kronos. And it included a mortal! :o

I liked all the short stories except for the last one. The son of magic is not good, it has aged badly and it doesn't have the charm. I think it's sweet that the author's son contributed to this but unfortunately it wasn't good. All the other short stories were good. Percy taking Annabeth to Paris for their one month anniversary is really cute but super extreme. My unrealistic expectations are now even higher somehow. A decent companion novel, but it could've been better.

Oh I loved it sooo much more than the demigod files. All the four stories were really special and interesting to me. Especially Percabeth❤ Omg it was so so cute. Give me more Percabeth content😭. I don't think it will ever be enough. And george and martha are hilarious. Staff of hermes has to be my favorite out of all the stories.

The rest three, I cannot rank as to each to their own they were really amazing. It was interesting to see a glimpse of Luke's life before..well everything turned wrong. It certainly helps in understanding Annabeth's and Thalia's faith towards him and the bond they shared. Leo was as usual amazing. And his adventure with bufford and the meanads equal parts interesting and amusing. Very enjoyable that one. And lastly the son of magic. I felt really emotional reading author's note on how his son who fought ADHD/ dyslexia in real life was a source of inspiration for the PJO books. So it only makes sense for his son to write a piece for this amazing world he inspired. It wouldn't be surprising if he surpasses his father someday. I loved Son of Magic even though it's tone is different, much darker than what we are used to in this world. It was a really interesting addition.

Overall this is a great companion novel to the series with amazing stories and adventures we missed seeing in the series❤.

Sadly, I can't say this was as good as the Files. Probably because there weren't as many interviews. Those were hilarious. The stories were good--Haley Riordan's was great.

The Demigod Diaries, like The Demigod Files, serves as an interlude between two of Rick Riordan's books in the main series. While all the stories in the Files all happen during the summer between The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian, the four stories in this book all happen at different times, which I found helped me understand and become more involved in the Percy Jackson universe.

The Diary of Luke Castellan was a really interesting read for me. It's interesting to see Luke as the 'good guy' he was back in The Lightning Thief, and to see why exactly Thalia and Annabeth admired him so much. The Thalia and Luke dynamic was really cute too; I'll admit my heart cried when Luke talked about how he could never refuse Thalia. I also extremely liked how it also told the story of Annabeth's knife and how Luke found it and that was extremely touching. At times, however, I forgot that it was Luke narrating and not Percy, because their narration styles were eerily similar. But I think that's just a Rick Riordan thing.

Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes was everything I have waited for since I finished The Last Olympian. We have Percy and Annabeth on a date, kicking butt and just generally being cute. It's sweet how even though they're dating, there are still some things so Percy and Annabeth that they haven't changed. And Percy's concerns about Annabeth being hurt are generally just really sweet and I really missed First Person Percy POV. It's nice to see Percy in a new light and see him through other people's eyes, but I missed the snark that goes in Percy's head. Bless him.

Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford basically had me in stitches. While the first story gave me more understanding and the second warm fuzzies, Leo's story just made me crack up in laughter. The fact he made me almost fall off my chair. There are some things that only Leo Valdez can pull off -- while Jason and Piper, whom he's pulled into his problems are kind of confused by the whole thing while trying to help him out.

And finally, we get to Son of Magic, by Rick's son, Haley. For someone my age, the story was pretty much amazing. I can't say that I can write like that. Alabaster's story is quite strange and I grew to like but extremely dislike the characters. Dr Claymore was kind of an idiotic mortal and Alabaster hated Percy Jackson because he destroyed Kronos's army and expected the minor gods to yield because of a wish. At times, I felt mad at Percy instead of Alabaster -- and even realising Claymore acts like an idiotic mortal because he is one. However, it kind of really creeped me out because it was very deep and dark, a darkness his father's stories never reach because they always have that witty humour strung through the whole thing. Still, it was a great read.

I read through this book in a couple of hours, and I just need me some Mark of Athena! Thank goodness the countdown's less than a month and I can't wait.

In questo libro segreto di Eroi dell'Olimpo sono contenute tre storie bonus che riguardano sia la Percy Jackson saga che appunto Eroi dell'Olimpo, più una quarta scritta dal figlio di Rick.

La prima "Il Diario di Luke Castellan" come già anticipa il titolo stesso parla del periodo in cui lui e Thalia facevano squadra per sopravvivere ai mostri che attentavano alla loro vita ed è anche quello in cui hanno incontrato Annabeth rendendola ufficialmente parte della loro piccola famiglia.
(Ri)trovare un Luke più buono e ingenuo (la mazza da golf che usava a mo' di arma era fantastica) mi colpisce ogni volta come anche il fatto di scoprire che aveva una super cotta per Thalia (ad un certo punto mi sono ritrovata a shipparli) e a quanto il loro rapporto fosse basato sulla protezione e fiducia.
La scena delle predizioni del figlio di Apollo (in cui ha praticamente riassunto il proseguimento della loro vita nel resto dei dieci libri della saga) è stata molto da soft brivido.
Ma per finire, una delle scene più toste e significative di tutta la saga: la comparsa (arrivo) di Annabeth.
Avevamo già letto questa scena "Nello scontro finale", ma leggerla dal punto di vista di Luke è stato entusiasmante e oserei dire "Illuminante".

Il secondo "Percy Jackson e lo scettro di Ermes" ambientato rispettivamente un mese dopo i fatti dello "scontro finale" e prima di quelli di "Eroi dell'Olimpo".
Percy e Annabeth si stanno godendo un appuntamento al parco fino a quando non ci pensa Ermes a renderlo più (dipende dai punti di vista) intrigante e avventuroso, affidandogli una missione delicata quanto pericolosa ovvero di recuperarli lo scettro (il suo potente e indispensabile simbolo) che gli è stato rubato.
Amo in modi sconfinati questa ship e ogni volta che leggo qualcosa di Percy Jackson mi scopro sempre più innamorata del suo personaggio e il sapere di avere la totale certezza che lui non esiste, non aiuta. Affatto.
Mi è piaciuto tantissimo il momento in cui Percy ha detto che poteva essere a disagio e a volte nervoso di essere il ragazzo di Annabeth, ma che quando combattevano riuscivano ad essere perfettamente coordinati e preparati senza aver bisogno di parlare".
Uno dei particolari che rende questa coppia una delle più singolari e ammirabili di tutti i libri.

Il terzo "Leo Valdez e la missione per Buford" ambientato in Eroi dell'Olimpo, racconta di un famoso episodio con le Menadi seguaci di Dioniso che in quest'ultima seconda saga è stato citato più e più volte.
Sono stata francamente felice che Rick abbia scelto di farlo raccontare dal punto di vista di Leo perché con lui schiatti da ridere a ogni pagina e pensiero descritto.

In quanto all'ultima storia "figlio della magia" comincerei con il parlare della nota introduttiva di Rick Riordan stesso.
Conoscevo già l'origine della nascita del personaggio di Percy Jackson e tutta la saga, ma poterla sapere nei minimi dettagli mi ha sciolto letteralmente il cuore.
Io trovo questi gesti dei genitori per i figli dei più rari e ineguagliabili che possano esistere al mondo.
Dare vita ad un personaggio dei libri, crearne una storia solo per il figlio così da dirgli che è speciale e dargli la certezza che riuscirà ad essere (a modo suo) un eroe come quelli dei suoi romanzi, è qualcosa di davvero stupendo. E il fatto che è stato pubblicato un suo racconto/storia della saga in questo libro segreto, dimostra che ci è riuscito davvero (It's so beautiful).
E' anche per questo che dico che i libri di Rick meritano di essere letti. Perché dietro a tutto quello che scrive (sia a livello morale che culturale) ci sono davvero dei contenuti profondi, preziosi e vastissimi da comprendere e seguire. I suoi romanzi fanno leva su aspetti della vita e messaggi che vengono stranamente e facilmente sminuiti e sottovalutati (non compresi o probabilmente ignorati intenzionalmente) al pari passo della saga dei libri.
Tornando alla storia scritta dal figlio, comunque, devo dire che è ben scritta e strutturata.
Ha talento quanto al padre, ma proprio per questo ho da fare un appunto: non so voi, ma ho come sentito di essere avvolta da una magia dissimile da quella di cui sono solita essere circondata con i libri di Rick.
Nel senso che è cristallino che la storia è stata scritta da una mano diversa. Nonostante i fatti citati e collegati agli avvenimenti di Percy Jackson e gli dei dell'Olimpo, mi è sembrato quasi di aver iniziato un nuovo romanzo di una nuova saga
Ma non per questo, mi è risultato meno gradito.
Ripeto: il figlio ha un talento promettente e avvincente.

Questo libro segreto di Eroi dell'Olimpo è per me da cinque stelline. Leggerlo è stato come fare un'allegra e sorprendente nuotata in fondo all'oceano. Ma forse sono da parte perché io trovo qualsiasi cosa scritta da Rick sempre interessante e insuperabile. Non ne avrò davvero abbastanza dei suoi libri, proprio mai.

En esta recopilación de historias cortas vamos a acompañar a Luke y a Thalia en la aventura por la que conocieron a una peculiar niña llamada Annabeth. Siendo compañeros de viaje, y de lucha, ambos siguen pistas de los dioses para sobrevivir, hasta que se meten en una casa en la que no todo es lo que parece, ya que nuevos peligros acechan, donde tendrán que enfrentarse a una batalla de ingenio si quieren sobrevivir. Por su parte, Percy y Annabeth están disfrutando de un momento de relax cuando, de repente, Hermes viene pidiendo ayuda. La misión de rescatar su famosa vara les hará adentrarse en las profundidades de la ciudad, dispuestos a confundir a un gigante lanza fuego que no le pondrán las cosas tan fáciles. Jason, Piper y Leo, en el Campamento Mestizo, tendrásn que correr a contrareloj para poder salvar ese lugar tan mítico para los semidioses. Pero una serie ménades, posiblemente, no les dejará conseguir rescatar aquello que necesitan de un parpadeo. Por último, será el hijo del propio Rick Riordan quién nos narre uno de los misterios que muchos seguidores han tenido en mente, dando respuesta a una pregunta que lleva mucho tiempo circulando alrededor de la saga.

Con cada una de estas pequeñas aventuras recogidas en Percy Jackson y la vara de Hermes: y otras historias de semidioses, Rick Riordan revive el mundo mitológico, y a sus personajes, mediante su toque único aventurero y cómico, cuatro historias cortas, establecidas entre el primer y segundo libro de la saga Los Héroes del Olimpo, que nos dejan una tarde de lectura divertida, entretenida y repleta de viejos conocidos que vuelven a hablarnos y a vestirnos de semidioses, como si fuéramos uno más. Creo que, al ser historias cortas, lo mejor es dejar mi opinión a través de una mini reseña ya que no hay mucho que contar y no me voy a extender tanto como cuando hago reseña de un libro con una sola historia, así que aquí os comento mejor sus puntos buenos y, también, algún que otro punto flaco.


1- La ambientación y estilo de Rick: creo que todos y todas,a estas alturas, sabemos de qué manera trabaja Rick Riordan. Sin perder ese estilo, en estas historias cortas nos mete de nuevo en esa explosión entre el mundo clásico, la mitología griega, y el mundo real, un encuentro que, de nuevo, nos dará escenas únicas y repletas de acción para entretenernos sin ningún tipo de problemas. Regresar a este mundo, después de tanto tiempo, ha sido un soplo de aire fresco, una lectura perfecta, para pasarlo bien, en cualquier momento.

2- Los personajes: son personajes que ya conocemos, algunos más que otros pero, aún así, no son completos desconocidos. Volver a estar bajo la piel de Percy, Annabeth o Thalia me ha gustado muco. Además, nos da la oportunidad de hacer un viaje por el pasado y presente, haciendo Rick que conozcamos mejor al personaje de Luke, una parte de lo que era antes de tomar esa decisión, además de tener momentos más íntimos o donde la amistad se desarrolla completamente.

3- Diversión e ilustraciones: sí, te diviertes leyendo estas historias, de eso no hay duda. Yo he podido reírme en más de una ocasión... ¡pero es que no es lo único que no aporta este libro! 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. Por supuesto, tengo que mencionar la serie de ilustraciones originales que tiene el libro, haciendo de éste un pedazo de colección indispensable para cualquier fan de la saga.

4- El hijo de Rick Riordan: vale, algo que me ha sorprendido es encontrar una de las historias cortas escritas por el hijo del tito Rick. No obstante, ha sabido mantener la esencia. A ver, si creces son esas historias a todas horas, y cada día, es normal que sea fácil adentrarse en el mundo y ponerse en la piel de su creador, ¡él mismo forma parte de la historia! Porque él y Percy están muy ligados y, de alguna forma, Riordan quería darle a su hijo esa aventura que tanto se merecía. Así pues, ha sido genial ver esa pasión y amor que le tiene el hijo de Rick a esta historia de semidioses y que haya escrito una de las historias cortas, siendo así de valiente, dice mucho de él.


1- Historias cortas: en realidad, ese es mi problema con todo esto de las historias cortas. Ser una historia corta implica ser algo temporal, una escena concreta, que empieza, avanza rápidamente, y termina sin tener demasiada repercusión para la historia principal. Ser una historia corta te puede entretener y divertir, sí, de eso no hay duda, pero no te transmite tanto como un libro completo, al menos, en mi caso. Así que sí, so historias cortas para leerlas como quieras y cuando quieras, que te van a gustar porque, a ver, son de Rick Riordan y pertenecientes al mundo de Percy Jackson, pero pierden parte de su poder.

This was a fun addition to the Percy Jackson and Hero's of Olympus series. 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 of the Percy Jackson series.

3.5⭐️, loa relatos cortos no me parecen maravillosos, pero aportan mucho a la historia. Sobre todo en momentos donde necesitas volver a ser un poquito feliz 😅

En español el libro se llama “Percy Jackson y la vara de Hermes” 💙 mi relato favorito fue El diario de Luke!

Muy divertido, al querido estido de Rick Riordan. Me reí mucho con el capítulo de la cita de Percy y Annabeth. Y amo amo amo a las serpientes de Hermes, me hacen reír demasiado y feliz leería un libro de esas serpientes, pero me conformo con la entrevista que sale en este libro.

No es por ofender a los ilustradores, pero algunos de los dibujos me van a dar pesadillas XD en serio, hay unas ilustraciones que dan miedo, y otras que hacen ver a los personajes como si tuvieran 10 y 50 años al mismo tiempo jajajaja

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 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.

Really pleased with this companion book love the short stories<3. 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!!!

It had Percy and Annabeth, how could I not have loved it!!!

It was a really sweet book. Oh my gosh, Annabeth is a really difficult person to be in a relationship with!
Not that I have experience with her, of course wink wink

No, don't worry I don't (obviously) but it really feels like I have since I have read all PJ books.

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 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.

Esto es un libro con 4 relatos del mundo de Percy Jackson. El primero es sobre Luke y Thalía conociendo a Annabeth, le doy un 7’9 a su aventura, porque lo de la cabra del Seven Up! me mató.
Luego tocó la historia de nuestro querido Percy. Si, si, si y mil veces si. Esto es un 10 rotundo, aquí Annabeth y Percy se meten en las cloacas de NY rollo el Spiderman de Andrew en la primera película. Y pues me da unas vibes muy buenas.
La siguiente es sobre LEO MOTHERFUCKER VALDEZ. Te quiero, por si no lo había dicho ya. Este Man es un genio, aunque la lia un poco en esta historia y aparecen Piper y Jason <3. Pues nada que tienen que impedir que el campamento explote, le doy un 9’5 porque no sale Percy.
Por último tenemos una historia random que ha escrito el hijo del Tío Rick. En plan es el chaval al que Riordan le contaba las historias de Percy Jackson, sin él no existirían. Bueno el caso que todo PJ surge porque le diagnostican al hijo de Rick TDHA y dislexia.
El chaval pues escribe bien para haberlo hecho con 16 años, lo único que los personajes me la sudan, en plan no los conozco así que paso de ellos. La historia está bien, tienen profundidad y explican bastantes cosas del mundillo que antes no tenían explicación así que todo ok. Mi problema con este relato: no conozco a los personajes, no empatizo. Así que le voy a dar un 6’5.

Bueno y eso es todo, bye ;)

I love Percy's relationship with Hermes. The way they converse is so casual and friend-like (Percy did refer to him as a "personal friend), Percy was comfortable with teasing Hermes and being sarcastic with him, but defended him to the giant ("Hermes is a way better salesman than you"). The way Hermes "looked like he was about to cry" was quite cute and surprising for a god. Nonetheless he chose Percy (instead of his children) to recover his most important possession. He trusted Percy to succeed and keep it a secret, even though the staff is literally his god hood and that loosing it would make him a laughing stock. Percy's interaction with Martha and George also shows that he sees them as friends instead of just an item. The snakes were ultra-cute, sleeping with their "bulging bellies" and having Hemes patting their heads. Also Hermes thanked them for the favour!! I mean did ANY other gods thanked heroes for anything? Nope. Proving that Hermes is the best god ever. And... he gave them a dinner date in Paris!!! He dressed them up and snapped them to Paris!! Holy Hermes!
