Notes: It’s fast-food fantasy: formulaic fun. Foundational founts of fruitful fodder, framework, and footing for future fiction.

I enjoyed reading this so much, I loved the short stories. Gotta say that my favorite was the one with the dragon, just because it had both Percy and Annabeth in it.

Let me preface this review by saying that I love the Percy Jackson and the Olympian Series. I recommend it to kids all the time, and have read the first four books. I did not like this little addition. I have to admit I was mightily turned off by the little Disney logo next to the Hyperion imprint. Intellectual snob? Little ole me?

Maybe the Disney thing wouldn't have left such an impression had the pictures included with the text not resembled so many a Disney character. Did Chiron have to look

I'm super excited to read this, and to go on to the next series. Percy is growing up and it's weird, but great.

Yes, I know that the Percy Jackson's series was aimed at a younger audience.
Yes, I will continue reading and loving them until I am a withered old woman.

The Demigod Files is a collection of three short stories, interviews of the characters, fact files of the Greek gods, and activities from Camp Half-Blood.

Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot=★★ stars
Percy Jackson and the Bronze Dragon=★★★★ stars

The Demigod Files is more of a companion novel to the series than actually part of the series itself...I think. The book contains various mini-bios on a few of the main characters and gods. As well as a map of the camp grounds and a few other features that are sure to please any fan of the series.
In my opinion, the biggest bonuses of the book are the three short stories that it contains. Now, I'm not sure if the stories are completely separate from the overall plot of the series and therefore ha

"Percy, you’re a brave guy," she said. "Just take the compliment. I swear, it is so hard?" We locked eyes. Our faces were, like, two inches apart. My chest felt a little funny, like my heart was trying to do jumping jacks. - The Demigod Files

There is a story in this book concerning the Big Three's children, Thalia, Nico, and Percy and their adventure in the Underworld that's my fave. Full of humor, danger, mythological power, and the annoying gods. This is not a necessary read following Battle of the Labyrinth but it's a must-read if you're a huge fan.

Ah, nostalgia...

This novella takes place between the fourth and fifth book of the original PJO series and tells three short stories surrounding Percy and his friends.

Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot - 2.5 stars: In this short story, we have Clarisse doing a test for her father, Ares. However, her brothers Deimos and Phobos are determined to have her fail, since they don't want a female driving Ares's Chariot. Percy helps her to succeed in her mission and ensure that Clarisse doesn't anger Ares. It was an okay story, with not too much that interested me, but it wasn't bad. I never found Clarisse to be that great of a charac

(3.5) Nice, cute, i'm happy that the last novella wasn't the regular children like story and there was some seriousness. Interesting, if you're a big fan of the series, this book is a nice way to reconcile with the old characters.

I love how it's a sort of in between the first book and the last book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. It provides a fresh perspective into that world, and portrays different interactive elements such as maps and interviews!

Now I'm a huge fantasy buff and I understand the Percy Jackson books are intended for children below 12, but still, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. The dialogue is terribly bad, I hate seeing the greek gods with which I grew up talking like some american teenagers. Yeah I know, this is modern, it's fast-paced, it's supposed to be an easy read for children, get them into books, but not like this. There tons of other better examples (see Harry Potter or The Chronicles of Narnia).

As usual, Rick Riordan delivers. I'm going through his books slowly this year, and it was really nice to see these stories again. The book contains three stories: Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot, Percy Jackson and the Bronze Dragon, and Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades. The book should be read between the fourth and fifth book of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series (The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian, respectively).

This definitely should be read between Battle of the Labyrinth and Last Olimpyan. It’s not mandatory, but I think it gives more context to some things that happen in the last book of the series.

I enjoyed this, it's an easy read and it has the same elements as the other books (humor, action and plenty of greek mythology). I just wish I had read it before book 5 because it is connected to the main series. It’s not a indispensable read, but I feel like it does help painting a bigger picture.

Simply an adorable companion to the Percy Jackson series. This novella contains three short stories, some character interviews, and puzzles. Though not at all necessary to the main story, the short stories were a lot of fun and certainly added to the experience.

Lame, yes. Sort of.
The dragon part didn't play out well. Not according to the expectations, anyway.

But Capture the flag part was good!

One of my guilty pleasures, undoubtedly. If you can believe it.

“Christmas in the Underworld was NOT my idea.
If I'd known what was coming, I would've called in sick. I could've avoided an army of demons, a fight with a Titan, and a trick that almost got my friends and me cast into eternal darkness.
But no, I had to take my stupid English exam.”
