    Si por mí fuera, leería a cinco autores durante toda mi vida: Rick Riordan, J. K. Rowling, Laura Gallego, Patrick Rothfuss y Sarah J. Maas. LONG MAY THEY REIGN!The Demigod Files es un libro compañero a la primera saga del Tío Rick: Percy Jackson and the Olympians y tiene tres historias cortas y unas cuantas entrevistas para partirse de la risa. La primera historia, The Stolen Charriot nos cuenta cómo Clarisse debe recuperar el carruaje de su padre Ares para probar que es una digna hija de la guerra. El problema es que sus hermanastros, Fobos y Deimos, dioses del terror y el pánico, lo han robado para que ella fracase. Eventualmente, Clarisse se encontrará por casualidad con Percy y juntos intentarán derrotar a estos dioses menores. ¿Quién dijo que un hijo de Poseidón y una hija de Ares no podían trabajar juntos? ;) En The Bronze Dragon todo empieza con un juego de Captura la Bandera en el que Percy y Annabeth están en bandos opuestos, lo que garantiza una competencia brutal. Cuando empieza el juego, Percy y Beckendorf, hijo de Hefesto, se internan en el bosque y se encuentran con unas hormigas gigantes, las myrmekes, que terminan arrastrando al hijo del dios herrero a su hormiguero. A partir de ahí, Percy tendrá media hora antes de que las hormigas devoren a Beckendorf para pedir ayuda a Annabeth y a Silena Beauregard, hija de Afrodita. Juntos, y con la ayuda de un dragón mítico de bronce que deberán ensamblar, estos semidioses trabajarán a contrarerloj para salvar la vida de su amigo.Esta historia me recordó muchísimo a Festus, el dragón que Leo ensambla en la segunda saga y, además, morí de amor por la relación tontita entre Silena y Beckendorf. También me reí un montón viendo cómo Percy y Beckendorf hablaban sobre cómo invitar a las chicas a los fuegos artificiales del 4 de Julio <3.La última historia, The Sword of Hades reúne a los hijos de los tres grandes: Percy Jackson, hijo de Poseidón; Thalia Grace, hija de Zeus; y Nico di Angelo, hijo de Hades. En esta historia, los semidioses son convocados al inframundo por Perséfone, la esposa de Hades, quien los embarca en una misión por todos los recovecos del infierno griego para que atrapen a quien a robado una nueva espada de acero estigio que estaba siendo forjada para el dios de los muertos. De esta historia me gustó muchísimo el trabajo en equipo de Percy, Thalia y Nico y lo conscientes que son de que, muchas veces, no son más que peones de los dioses, peones que hacen el trabajo sucio para evitar grandes guerras entre ellos. Y de Nico, ay... pobrecillo mío. El pobre en esta historia aún está tratando de probar su valía ante su padre, porque si hay algo difícil en la vida es ser un hijo de Hades.

    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 like Gaston from Beauty and the Beast? Annabeth looks ready for stores shelves as "Tomboy Skipper" (With New Adventures Included!).The stories themselves seemed a bit forced to me. The only thing I really liked about the book was the last segment teasing the reader with a preview of the final book. Riordan's voice seemed more like his own to me there than in the other shorts. Those felt as though he was trying to cram as much action as possible with no storyline to back them up.I had high hopes for this little ditty, but I was let down by what seemed like a gratuitous, money-making ploy.

    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.

    Cute. And now I'm ready to finally go onto HEROES OF OLYMPUS. WHOOTWHOOT. ------------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.

    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 have no bearing, or if they do play a role in the things to come. Given that the characters present are in line with the most current book out, I'm led to believe that the stories are somewhat a part of the series. In which case, if you are reading the series you should check this book out.While not long at all, this book really wet my appetite until the final book comes out in May. Again, if you are a fan of Percy Jackson, then you have to take a look at this book. If you are new to the series, don't start with this one as it will give away many plot details. I'd start withThe Lightning Thief

    I don't know why most of my Goodreads friends rated it kinda low, but I, on the other hand really enjoyed reading it.I loved the mini-stories, especially the one featuring the Sword of Hades. (view spoiler)[Being the lover of spoiler that I am, I sneaked a peek at The Heroes of Olympus and found out that Percy lost some of his memories at some part of the series. So while I was reading this short-story, I thought the reason why he had amnesia was because he fell in the River Lethe. But I was wrong since, being the son of the sea god that he is, he remained dry when he fell along with the Titan, Bob. Oops, I mean Iapetus. (hide spoiler)]I also loved the "interviews"! Especially Annabeth's.All in all, I think the book was cool. The facts & mini-stories were all a good read and I had a nice time answering the quizzes, too. :)So, yeah... I think I won't be able to read The Last Olympian tomorrow since I have to study for our midterms next week... But then again, we'll never know when the spirit of procrastination will come. Harhar

    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.

    Rating: 3.1 (avg of all ratings)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 character, so I didn't really care about her perhaps getting into trouble.Percy Jackson and the Bronze Dragon - 2.5 stars: During their game of Capture the Flag, Percy and Hephaestus's cabin leader come across the head of a Bronze Dragon, previous protector of Camp Half-Blood while trying to infiltrate Annabeth's team. When he gets too close and gets captured by the creatures who discovered it, Percy and company must work to save him. I think this was the one that least interested me, but it wasn't that bad. I do feel like I've read it before though, and I'm not quite sure where.Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades - 4 stars: Percy, Thalia, and Nico are called into the Underworld by Persephone in order to stop an intruder from escaping with Hades's new sword, one that can free souls from the Underworld. This was my favourite of all the short stories, for a few reasons. It had a good balance of dialogue and action, with some witty bits characteristic of Riordan. It brought together 3 of my favourite characters, especially Thalia. I also thought it was the most fun of the stories, even though it seems to be the most serious.Additional content - 3.5 stars: This part included a few page-long interviews with residents of Camp Half-Blood, as well as Annabeth's bag and a map of Camp Half-Blood. The interviews were cute and short, and I really liked seeing the map of Camp Half-Blood. I never thought about the layout when I was reading Percy Jackson years ago, so it was nice to see.I don't think this is an essential read by any means, it's more of just a fun little book you can read if you miss the Percy Jackson universe.

    I am a little sad that my computer decided to delete my review. I had it complete and everything and then *poof*, it was gone. So this will be an abbreviated version of my original review... in mesmerizing point form: *Yes, I know this is a book made for kids, yes I know it has a cross word, word search, good and goddess guide, drawings of characters, and a guide to packing my own luggage for Camp Half-Blood, but I don't care! I bought this book for myself and myself only, with 0 regrets! *and yes, you did read that write, along with the three amazing short stories that book has a lot of fun things in it for young (and older) fans to enjoy *and yes, the short stories were frigging awesome!Percy Jackson & The Stolen Chariot *Awesome adventure with Clarisse and Percy going head to head with two of Ares's godly sons: Phobos (phobias) and Deimos (mass terror/hysteria) *This also shined light on their interesting - to say the least - friendship and the slightly concerning dynamic between Clarisse and her father *Short and sweet, with tons of action!Percy Jackson & The Bronze Dragon *I loved the automaton in this; I mean, a fully functional, robotic, bronze dragon, crafted in the make of a Greek dragon! Pretty frigging cool! *I got to learn more about a few of the campers at Half-Blood that actually play huge roles in the final book *Plus, it gets kind of adorable in the romantic department, if you understand what I am laying down here *nudge nudge*Percy Jackson & The Sword of Hades *FINALLY! An adventure with all three kids from the mighty Three: the son of Hades, the son of Poseidon, and the daughter of Zeus, all together at last *In comparison to the previous two short stories, I think this one was the most fun, but also the most important in the grand scheme of things (key events happen here that explain a few things in the fifth and final book) *Also, it was so entertaining to see how the three worked together, since usually it was either Thalia and Percy or Nico and Percy but never the three of them together * Plus, this adventure took place in the Underworld, which in my opinion is just as or even more fascinating than Poseidon's kingdom under the seaSo there you have it. My magical, point form review of this wicked book. If you are a fan of Percy Jackson don't miss out on this. You will guarantee to have a blast reading it.

    Actual rating: 4/5 starsI got this for christmas from my lovely friend Patricia, thanks again! I really enjoyed it :)Lemme just tell you: it was so nice going back into the 'early' Percy Jackson days! 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 ChariotI'm going to give this story 3 stars, it was fun, but the plot didn't really interest me. Stolen chariot? I feel like we've seen that before... or, after... The publishing dates confuse me okay!I'm not really a big fan of Clarisse (who accompanies Percy on that quest) either, so yeah... Percy Jackson and the Bronze DragonI'm gonna give this one a solid four stars. I really liked it and I also found the plot to be more intriguing than in the first story... sorry not sorry. I loved that we got to see a little more of Beckendorf! (view spoiler)[Rest in peace buddy. (hide spoiler)]All in all, a really nice and quirky short story!Percy Jackson and the Sword of HadesLoved. Loved. Loved. 5 stars!This quest brings together the kids of the 'Big Three', meaning Thalia, Nico and Percy (obviously).I love Lieutnant Thalia and you guys know I'm the biggest Nico girl! So happy to get another glimpse at these two. I also liked the story a lot in this one. Especially one side plot concerning a adorably cute titan (whoever read House of Hades knows who I'm talking about)....noooooo?NO I'M NOTWhat?... That's -- nothing I just --- must've caught something in my eye or something.So, in a nutshell: A must read for every PJO fan, I really enjoyed it.(3 stars + 4 stars + 5 stars = 12 stars12 divided by 3 = 4 Here we go: This book gets a 4 star rating! (yeah...beware my math powers))["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    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).---The book is fun and light. Well, the stories not so much, but the extra content yes. The three stories can be alternatively re-titled as Percy and Clarisse Can Be Somewhat Civil to Each Other (re: Daddy Issues), Percy and Charlie: The Buff™ (Not) Boys (re: Sneaky Girls Are Sneaky), and The Big Three: Annoyed Again (re: Stop Hurting My Children), respectively.The extra content includes interviews with the characters, questions to test your monster knowledge, trivia, and more fun stuff.Review written on 27 January, 2017.

    "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."The Demigod Files includes three short stories and some interviews with a few characters. All three short stories are set after The Battle of the Labyrinth and before The Last Olympian. They were fabulous. They were spunky. It was just what I needed.Percy Jackson and the Stolen ChariotOkay, so maybe not that fabulous. To be honest, this wasn't that good. It lacked a certain finesse I was looking for. The writing seemed nothing extraordinary. The plot wasn't interesting and the action scenes were boring. But does this change my opinion of the whole series? Nah. Sometimes short stories are hard to craft.It also didn't have any Percabeth moments. That's mainly why I am disappointed. Who would enjoy only Clarisse and Percy as they argue almost the entire story?Percy Jackson and the Bronze DragonThis was epic. Just awesome. Everything was much better than before. I have a deep respect for the Hephaestus cabin. Those guys manage to be inventors and warriors at the same time. And reading about Silena and Beckendorf was so freaking bittersweet. On a more positive note, Percy's humor manages to make me smile since book one. "I could tell they let there food rot before eating it. Somebody seriously needed to teach them about refrigerators."I love it when he talks about rotting food.But, most of all, the Percabeth moments were the best moments. "If I was going to pick one person to reattach my head, I'd pick you."Awwwww. Aren't they the sweetest?Percy Jackson and the Sword of HadesThe Big Three demigods are in this one. Of course everything was badass. Of course I let out a fangirl squeal somewhere in the mix. The action scenes were feisty. I loved it. The InterviewsSome of our favorite characters were given a interview. I loved how each person's dialogue really helped me understand their personalities. Each were only about two pages long and would've liked it if they were a bit longer. Favorite interview? Annabeth's. It really brought out the fangirl in me. Look below at my status updates for proof. Can I hug her? Please? Overall, a 4-star companion book. I personally believed the first story was lacking, but the other two were awesome.

    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).This book has three short stories that describe some of the adventures the main character goes trough. If you look past the terrible dialogue, the stories are not that bad, I particularly enjoyed the second one, about the bronze dragon. Also I don't like the fact that the book has a first person perspective, having a young teenager describe the situations is bad, so bad...maybe a third person narration would have saved a bit.Overall, I wouldn't recommend this book at all, in my opinion it butchers the greek mythology with crappy dialogue, over-the-top cliches and stereotypical characters!

    I needed a little book to read in the background while I was working, and while this was good background noise, I'm not sure how exciting it was as a read. It had some interesting parts, but the parts that I did enjoy, there were shorter than I wanted and the parts that I wanted shorter, were way too long. I liked the interviews, and there were a few good little quirky comments that were fantastic in there. I liked a few different things, but some of the stories were just okay. The narrator kind of made my eyebrows raise at a few of them because I feel like every man that wasn't Percy or Grover had a dude bro voice and it was kind of odd. And his version of Annabeth was kind of annoying. But the stories themselves were just okay and not super epic Percy fun. They seemed a little too rushed, but I mean, they are just short stories.Overall, it was fun enough, and you still should read it to complete your Demigod collection since it definitely provided me more insight into Charlie, Selena, and Clarisse, but it really isn't as fun as it could have been. 2.5 crowns and a Pocahontas rating!

    This was an okay book, but not as impressive as I'd hoped. The stories are a bit dry in my opinion. If I hadn't already been so invested in the characters I would likely have been a bit bored. But there are a couple good moments and some character growth and understanding. I would have liked to have seen more of "Bob" in the last book. The interviews were fun and playful and I loved seeing the map of the camp. It really brought things more to life. The puzzle choices didn't impress me at all. Honestly I could have done without.
