Review:

Rick Riordan’s book never fail to make me smile.

It has been nearly a year since I last read one of Rick Riordan’s books. After picking up the Percy Jackson books in May and June, I knew I had to continue on and read more of the books that took place in this world. However, due to my busy schedule with school, I never got around to it. When I finally did pick up this book, it did not disappoint.

The format of this book was very interesting. It had a little bit of everything included within it. The first thing that was included was 3 short stories. All of them, obviously, told from Percy’s perspective. The first story, Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot, was a great one to start off the book. We got to see more off all the characters we love like Clarisse, Daughter of Ares.In this short story, Percy and Clarisse team up to try and find a chariot that belongs to Ares. Clarisse’s brothers start of by playing a prank on her. Before long, they are sent on a mission to try and find the chariot. This story was really funny and definitely put a smile on my face.

The second short story in the book was Percy Jackson and the Bronze Dragon. In this story, Percy and his friends are just participating in a normal round of capture the flag. While trying to protect the flag, Percy’s Friend Charlie Beckendorf, the son of Hephaestus, is captured by myrmekes, which are giant ants. After Charlie was captured, Percy and his friend Silena, the daughter of Aphrodite, go to find him. While searching, they come across the Bronze Dragon which used to be the guardian that kept Camp Half-Blood safe from non-demigods. After the find Charlie, they program the dragon to keep the myrmekes away from them so they can escape. This story was also very funny and kept me on the edge of my seat.

The last short story was Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades. This one was probably my personal favorite out of the three. In this story, Percy and his friend Thalia, daughter of Zeus, and Nico, son of Hades, are reunited and sent to the underworld. There they meet up with Persephone, the wife of Hades, who sends them on a mission to find a sword that Hades was having made in order to fight Kronos. While on the mission, they run into Ethan Nakamura,  the son of Nemesis, who has teamed up with the titan Iapetus. After battling Ethan and Iapetus, they force the titan into River Lethe where his memory is lost. They are able to get the sword and return it to Hades and they are able to returned to normal life.

The next thing that was cool about this book was the interviews with the different characters. All of them were absolutely hilarious. Getting to see things from their perspectives. All of them are definitely worth reading.

The last thing that is included within this book is the activities at the end of the book. There are some throughout the rest of the book as well. There are things from crosswords to trivia as well as guides to the different characters in the series.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable read for me. If you do read this, I would read it before you read The Last Olympian, the last book in the Percy Jackson series. It’s a really fun read and I was glad to be able to read it.

RATING: 5/5
