Synopsis:

How do you handle an encounter with Medusa on the New Jersey interstate? What's the best way to take down a Minotaur? Become an expert on everything in Percy's world with this must-have guide to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Complete with interviews, puzzles, games, and original short stories by Rick Riordan.

My rating:

The Demigod Files is such a fun book! Not only does it have fun interviews with the hilarious Stoll brothers (on pulling pranks), Annabeth (on Percy Jackson, hehehe), Grover, and, of course, Percy Jackson himself, but it also has a map of Camp Half-Blood, a crossword puzzle, word search, and my favorite: short stories!

In Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot, Clarisse's godly brothers Phobos and Deimos (that's Fear and Terror) stole Ares's chariot from her and she will be in very big trouble if she does not get it back. Enter Percy Jackson! Percy offers to help get it back and Clarisse unwillingly agrees. It was very fun and adventurous (for a short story), as is expected from any PJ story :)

Percy Jackson and the Bronze Dragon takes place before The Last Olympian. While playing a game of Capture the Flag, they find Festus (you know, from The Lost Hero)! :D Except he went a little berserk and psychotic. But it was still awesome! I love Festus! And also some giant ants capture Beckendorf... yeah, weird, I know. Lol. With the help of Percy, Annabeth and Silena, they set out to save Beckendorf. Speaking of, I also really like Silena! Like Piper, she is not your average child of Aphrodite, and that's one of the reasons why I really like her! And even though all that stuff went down in The Last Olympian with Silena, I really missed her!

Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades: Hades' new, powerful weapon is stolen by a minion of Kronos. It's up to Percy, Nico, and Thalia to look for it in the Underworld and get it back to its rightful owner. It was so much fun seeing Thalia and Nico again! They are just some of those characters I've really missed. And we also catch a glimpse of Sisyphus, which is always fun (not for him, lol)! Also, in The House of Hades we came across Bob the Titan and I, for the life of me, could not remember how he lost his memory. I loved Bob, so I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that this short story explained everything behind Bob the Titan! The story was pretty awesome, to say the least.
